Gangster Style Coming Your Way Friday

Los Angeles–If “Boardwalk Empire’s” Prohibition-era gangsters and the women who love them have left you wanting more, there’s a new crop of gangsters coming to a theater near you.

“Gangster Squad,” set in the 1940s and starring Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, among others, opens Jan. 11 and it looks as stylish as it is violent (the film was actually pushed back from its Fall 2012 release after the Aurora, CO theater shootings).

“Gangster Squad” hails itself as “a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD’s efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time.”

We’ll see it for Emma Stone’s turn as ambitious femme fatale Grace Faraday, complete with evening gowns, glitzy jewelry an elegant hair clips.

In the film, Faraday, who moves to Los Angeles in the ’40s to become a film star, dates mob boss Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) but becomes interested in Sgt. Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), a member of a group of LAPD officers seeking to stamp out mafia crime.

What could possibly go wrong?
