New Age Gangster Squad

Recently before a newly released film I saw a trailer for the infamously delayed "Gangster Squad", a film in 1940's L.A. in which a band of semi-vigilante, badass policemen go to war with huffing, puffing mobsters from back east.

The trailer that immediately followed "Gangster Squad" was for a movie titled "This Is The End" which apparently features Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, and Jay Baruchel all playing themselves and cracking wise. And that's when it hit me.

Rogen, Franco, Hill, McBride, Robinson & Baruchel is our generation's Gangster Squad.

Which is to say, God help us all.
