Win Tickets to see an Advance Screening of


To start the new year off right, blogUT wants you and a friend to win advance screening tickets to see GANGSTER SQUAD. For your chance to win, comment below with who you think has the best on-screen chemistry with Ryan Gosling and why.


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.

Under the direction of Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”), “Gangster Squad” is a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD’s efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time.  The film stars Oscar® nominees Josh Brolin (“Milk,” “True Grit”) and Ryan Gosling (“Half Nelson,” “Drive”) as the LAPD’s Sgt. John O’Mara and Jerry Wooters, and Academy Award® winner Sean Penn (“Milk,” “Mystic River”) as real-life mobster Mickey Cohen.  The film also stars Oscar® nominee Nick Nolte (“Warrior,” “Affliction”) as LAPD Chief “Whiskey Bill” Parker, and Emma Stone as Grace Faraday, Cohen’s moll and the object of Wooters’ attention.

The movie also stars Anthony Mackie (“The Adjustment Bureau”) as Coleman Harris, a switchblade-wielding cop who proudly patrols one of the most crime-ridden areas of the city; Giovanni Ribisi (“Avatar”) as the force’s Conwell Keeler, an electronics expert who takes as much pleasure in fixing his son’s bike as he does tinkering with experimental, military-grade equipment; Michael Peña (“Battle Los Angeles”) as Officer Kennard’s over-eager sidekick, Navidad Ramirez; Robert Patrick (“Flags of Our Fathers”) as Officer Max Kennard, a deadly cop who patrols the Olvera Street beat; and Mireille Enos as O’Mara’s wife, Connie.

The screenplay is by Will Beall (TV’s “Castle”), based on the book Gangster Squad by Paul Lieberman.  The film is being produced by Dan Lin (“Sherlock Holmes”), Kevin McCormick (“The Lucky One”) and Michael Tadross (“Arthur”).  The executive producers are Ruben Fleischer, Paul Lieberman and Bruce Berman.

Joining Fleischer behind the scenes are the director’s regular collaborators, production designer Maher Ahmad and editor Alan Baumgarten (“30 Minutes or Less,” “Zombieland”), as well as editor James Herbert (the “Sherlock Holmes” films), Academy Award®-winning director of photography Dion Beebe (“Memoirs of a Geisha”) and Oscar®-nominated costume designer Mary Zophres (“True Grit”).  The film’s composer is Steve Jablonsky (“Transformers: Dark of the Moon”).

  1. Emma Stone in crazy stupid love.
    The awkwardness of Emma’s character completely disoriented Ryan’s suave character. The two of them were absolutely charming together. I’m sure they’ll be equally charming in this film.

  2. Michelle Williams in Blue Valentine. Their courtship was such a beautiful story and I actually felt for the characters as they dealt with their troubled marriage. What an emotional roller coaster!

  3. Bianca the RealDoll in Lars and the Real Girl.

    Bianca touched not only Lars but as well as the rest of the towns people. Bianca helped Lars find happiness. Bianca had a job, had a funeral, even though she is an inanimate object. That sort of true charisma is something that even Ryan Gosling cannot resist.

  4. Ryan Gosling with Carey Mulligan in Drive. Their chemistry was absolutely beautiful and serene. The way they speak with just a glace and barely any words. And the fact that they were not together but had such a strong connection is what makes it beautiful. She gave him reason and made him into a better man. A real man that protects her family and dies trying.

  5. Thanks for the giveaway! My pick is Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams – the notebook is a classic and this couple is absolutely gorgeous together 🙂

  6. I think Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams had the best on-screen chemistry in Blue Valentine because you actually felt like they were a married couple and felt for the couple when the marriage was falling apart.

  7. Emma Stone in Crazy Stupid Love because their chemistry was truly remarkable and carried an otherwise weak characters into a dramatic twisted conflict that truly made the movie great!

  8. I have to choose RACHEL MCADAMS of course! They were so good in The Notebook. Their chemistry was so good that it lead to an offscreen hookup. They’re both great actors. Both Canadian. Love them both!

  9. Emma Stone in Crazy Stupid Love. Emma attracts me with her quirky, down-to-earth, light hearted, and playful personality and makes me want to follow her on-screen. Combined that with Ryan Gosling’s spot-on acting (besides, what’s not to love about him), I am attracted to both and seeing them together brings oodles of smiles and clown-like laughter from me. This is happiness :). I can’t wait for Gangster Squad.

  10. There is no competition — Rachel McAdams’ on-screen chemistry with Ryan Gosling in The Notebook was literally unforgettable. I could feel their chemistry and their love for each other coming off the screen!

  11. Lars and Bianca in Lars and the Real Girl.

    Brilliant performance by Gosling by getting people to believe that Bianca is his life-mate and not just some sex-doll he ordered on the internet due to his delusions.

  12. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling in the notebook. That movie makes me cry everytime. You can feel their chemistry and it is so amazing. Of course, I’d rather see him with myself, but it not then its Rachel hands down. Emma Stone has to come in second. That movie is so good. It’s up beat and fun, and hilarious with a touch of romantic feeling. Love it.
