Despite having ceded its release date to fellow Warner Bros. film, "Argo," it appears the studio has not given up on its drama "The Gangster Squad." Directed by Ruben Fleischer ("Zombieland," "30 Minutes Or Less") and starring the all-star cast of Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Nick Nolte, Robert Patrick, Michael Peña, Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Mackie, Emma Stone and a prosethtic-laden Sean Penn, a trailer has just arrived, likely ensuring the picture will arrive in 2012 after all.

The synopsis of the film is thus:

First Trailer for End of Watch Starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña

The first trailer for the cop-thriller End of Watch has gone online. The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña as a couple of uniformed officers who overstep their bounds when they decide to investigate a drug cartel and end up becoming targets.

Steve was excited by what he saw when he visited the set, but this trailer has me waiting to be convinced.
