This Week in Trailers: ‘The Campaign,’ ‘Killer Joe,’ ‘Argo,’ and More!

Gangster Squad

Oh, I don’t know. Despite the name, this is not a gangster movie parody — it appears to be a dead-serious noir-style flick set in ’40s Los Angeles. The trailer features many moments we’ve already seen in similar films, including a whole lot of guys in fedoras shooting guns and burning money. But Gangster Squad does star Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, and Emma Stone. Ruben Fleischer, of the enjoyable and genre-savvy Zombieland, directs. I can’t predict whether this will be fun or terrible, although it may be worth the price of admission just to watch Gosling and Stone’s dangerous flirtation.
