A Kinder, Gentler New ‘Gangster Squad’ Trailer

Gangster Squad Reshoots

“You’re going to be begging for a bullet before it’s over,” maybe isn’t the smartest line to end your preview with. Good thing it doesn’t look like The Gangster Squad is going to make for any kind of chore. This second trailer is packed to the brim with big hats, lots of bullets, and plenty of funny voices — all the famous hallmarks for a man’s man kind of movie. When you have a cast which includes Josh BrolinSean PennAnthony MackieNicky Nolte, and Robert Patrick, pure manliness is probably what you’re going to end up with.

Check out the second trailer for The Gangster Squad to see how many times you can hear “good lord” before going nuts:

The trailers have relied on that single song quite a bit to sell all the 1940s’ badassery, but with some striking, digitally shot imagery and the promise of some cool action, including the reshot climax set in Chinatown, The Gangster Squad shouldn’t need Jay-Z.

The Gangster Squad opens in theaters January 11th, 2012.
