"Gangster Squad" is one of the most hotly anticipated films of the year — or, at least, it was before the release was moved to Jan. 13.
But since every cloud has a silver lining, the delay means you have a little extra time to get yourself ready for one of the coolest cinematic experiences in recent memory courtesy of our brand new "Gangster Squad" giveaway.
Oh, and did we mention that we also have an exclusive clip from the "Gangster Squad" audio book right here as well?
Based on the epic book "Gangster Squad: Covert Cops, the Mobn and the Battle for Los Angeles" by Paul Lieberman, "Gangster Squad" tells the true story of the secret L.A. police unit that went toe to toe with organized crime in the 1940s and '50s in an undeclared war for the future of the city. And since it stars Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin and Sean Penn, among others, we have a feeling you're going to want to grab a front row seat for this one.
Which is why we're so excited to be able to bring you this exclusive audio clip from the book. And to express that excitement, we're giving five lucky fans both a hardcover copy of the book as well as a copy of the audio book. So whether you want to read it yourself or listen along, you'll be ready when January finally gets here.
Now that's truly gangster.
