While it was once going to kick off the fall movie season, Ruben Fleischer’s first foray into dramatic Gangster Squad has been now treated with the dreaded January release date, but we’re hoping there’s still some fun to be had in this Los Angeles-set crime drama. Ahead of next week’s release, Warner Bros. has now let loose some clips from the film, totaling over five minutes and one caught our eye in particular.
The majority of them see our actors, some of them including Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Nick Nolte, Robert Patrick, Michael Peña, Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Mackie and Emma Stone hamming it up on glossy sets, most notably Sean Penn, but the first clip below seems like Squad could be Drive in the 1940s.
Confronted by a baddie, Gosling has no choice but to get visibly angry and pour acid all over his genitals. Check it out below along with the rest of the clips thanks to Trailer Addict, and if the film is filled with over-the-top moments like the aforementioned one, perhaps it will indeed be worth seeking out.
Gangster Squad opens January 11th.
