New ‘Gangster Squad’ Trailer: Old-School Mobsters, All-Star Cast

The latest trailer for the upcoming period piece Gangster Squad looks somewhat similar to the version we saw almost exactly two months ago — but is no less exciting.

In the clip, all the big names from the all-star cast — including Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Emma Stone, and Nick Nolte — and bits from their showy performances are once again on display, as is the same Jay-Z song, “Oh My God,” which would seem to clash with a crime drama set several decades ago but instead serves to vibrantly punctuate the trailer toward the end.

The “based on a true story” film, directed by Zombieland‘s Ruben Fleischer, follows the LAPD’s struggle to keep East Coast Mafioso like Mickey Cohen (Penn) out of the City of Angels during the 1940s and ’50s. Check out the trailer below, and don’t miss Gangster Squad when it hits theaters on Sept. 7.
