Gangster Squad (January 11)Starring: Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Emma StoneDirected by: Ruben FleischerHigh Concept Premise: Two of the LAPD’s finest (Gosling and Josh Brolin) keep the City of Angels safe from gangsters like Mickey Cohen (Penn) and femme fatales (Stone) in ’40s and ’50s-era L.A.Thrill Factor: We’ve enjoyed both of Fleischer’s action comedies (Zombieland and 30 Minutes or Less) so we’re curious to see how he handles a more straightforward thrill ride.
