Gearing up for its January 11, 2013 release date, “Gangster Squad” has just unveiled a brand new promotional poster.

The Warner Bros production was due to hit theaters earlier this year, however the massacre during the opening night of “The Dark Knight Rises” in Aurora, Colorado forced extensive re-shoots.

Nonetheless, Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Nick Nolte, and Emma Stone are sure to make it all worth the wait.

Per the synopsis, “Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and--if he has his way--every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It's enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop...except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O'Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen's world apart.”
