'Gangster Squad' First Trailer Lands Online

The first trailer for director Ruben Fleischer‘s (Zombieland) crime drama Gangster Squad officially lands online. The film stars Sean Penn as gangster Mickey Cohen, and centers on the Los Angeles task force (headed by Josh Brolin) assembled to bring him to justice in 1940s. The cast is incredible, and Fleischer’s visual flair from his previous films looks to have matured and evolved for this more dramatic story. Above all, though, Gangster Squad looks like a lot of fun. It’s easy for period pieces such as this to be drowned by solemnity and fracture by the end of the day, but fortunately enough Fleischer hasn’t forgotten that there’s a lot of fun to be had in 1940s L.A. Additionally, the different personalities on display in the ensemble is pretty magnificent. Between this, Argo, and the bunch of movies slated for this fall/winter, 2012 is shaping up to be something special. Hit the jump for the trailer and the official synopsis.

First trailer and pictures for Seth MacFarlane's Ted arrive!

The first trailer and a batch of images from Seth MacFarlane‘s feature directorial debut Ted have gone online. The film stars Mark Wahlberg as a grown man whose childhood wish that his teddy bear would come to life suddenly comes true. The catch is that the bear (played by Macfarlane using motion-capture) turns out to be a swearing, pot-smoking wreck. The trailer is pretty fantastic, especially since it’s red band. Wahlberg lets his Boston accent free, and he and Ted look to have some incredibly entertaining chemistry. The bear is the most adorable foul-mouthed, dirty-minded stuffed animal you’ll ever come across. Obviously it's from Seth MacFarlane. Hit the jump to check out the trailer and images. The film also stars Mila Kunis, Joel McHale, Patrick Warburton, Giovanni Ribisi and the voice of MacFarlane as Ted. Ted opens July 13th joining to the list of anticipated films of the year.
