Be in with the chance of winning a pair of tickets to see Ruben Fleischer's LAPD noir.

To celebrate the release of Gangster Squad on Thursday 10 January courtesy of Warner Brothers, we're thrilled to announce a brand new sketchathon.


We want you to draw us a picture of a lead character from Gangster Squad – Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn), John O’Mara (Josh Brolin), Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling) or Grace Faraday (Emma Stone). Check out the official UK poster and trailer below to get your creative juices flowing.


One winner as chosen by LWLies will receive two complimentary tickets to see Gangster Squad at a cinema of their choosing. All entries will be included in a special Facebook gallery after the competition has closed.


Simply tweet your sketch to @LWLies by no later than 3pm on Monday 7 January. Good luck!



Official synopsis: 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.
