American Gangster Poster
Universal Pictures must have felt that people are not all that convinced of the action in American Gangster, as the studio has released a new, international trailer that is not only longer, but shows more action and suspense.
Movie Trailer: American Gangster
Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe, Brian Grazer, Steve Zaillian and Ridley Scott team to tell the true juggernaut success story of a cult hero from the streets of 1970s Harlem in American Gangster.
The trailer starts off with a bunch of faces getting beat down. Then we get to see Denzel rocking a fur coat -- very nice! Bring in a little bit of Mozart's Requiem as we learn how Washington's character, a black gangster came out on top in the drug industry. Like other businesses, you got to cut out the middle man.
Yes, the trailer finishes with more action, gun fights and strong language, but I was more stoked on the Mozart.

American Gangster opens to theaters on November 2nd.
