No names. No badges. No mercy.
We’re giving away advanced screening passes to check out “Gangster Squad” and you could be one of our lucky winners. The movie itself premiers nationwide in theaters on Jan. 11, but thanks to Buffalo.com, you’ll be able to catch the film ahead of time.
According to the film, here’s how the story goes:
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.
For your chance to win, comment on this post below stating your favorite Ryan Gosling movie and why. Every girl wants to date him and every man wants to be him, so we’re sure you’ve seen a couple of this kid’s flicks.
We are giving away 15 pairs of movie passes to an advanced screening of the film at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 8 at the Walden Galleria Regal Cinemas.
From the comments, we will randomly select 15 winners to receive a pair of passes to the advanced screening. Winners will be announced at 10 a.m. on Sunday (Jan. 6). All comments must be submitted prior to that date and time.
PLEASE NOTE: These are advanced passes and do not guarantee a seat for the screening. Seating for this film is first come, first serve so please plan on arriving early if you attend. The theatre is overbooked to ensure a full house.
Winners must be able to pick up their passes from the Buffalo News Office (One News Plaza, Buffalo, NY 14240) at the corner of Scott St. and Washington St. in downtown Buffalo before 6 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 7. Good luck everyone who enters!
