The “Gangster Squad” Gang Hits the Red Carpet

HOLLYWOOD (KTLA) – The new Warner Bros. film “Gangster Squad” takes on a serious subject:  how the LAPD went to war in the 1940′s and 50′s to rid the city of an East Coast Mafia takeover.

The film boasts some very big-name stars — Josh Brolin, Emma Stone, Giovanni Ribisi, Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn, and others.

They all hit the red carpet at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, and KTLA 5′s Lu Parker was front and center.
