Gangster Squad
Blu-ray $35.99 / DVD $28.99 (Warner Bros. Home Entertainment)

Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn, Emma Stone and Nick Nolte come out blazing in this stylish gangster yarn, based on real events. Set in Los Angeles in the late 1940s, it’s about an outfit of tough-cookie cops and their bloody, bullet-riddled campaign to flush their city of Mickey Cohen, a Brooklyn mob boss who’s migrated to the West Coast with other policeman and politicians in his pocket. Extras include commentary, a documentary on the real-life Cohen, deleted scenes and making-of features.
