Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced and detailed the Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet Combo Pack release of Gangster Squad this Spring. The film is directed by Ruben Fleischer and features an all-star cast that includes Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn, Nick Nolte, Emma Stone, Anthony Mackie, Giovanni Ribisi, Michael Peña, and Robert Patrick. Gangster Squad will be available for purchase online and in stores on April 23rd.
The film takes place in Los Angeles during 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and-if he has his way-every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It’s enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop…except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart.
Gangster Squad was released in January of 2013 and has grossed over $98 million in worldwide box office to date.
