First Look: Denzel, Russell Crowe in American Gangster


Because I've come to think of Denzel Washington as more like a sexy, sweet guy — someone you'd want as, say, the father of your kids — this trailer for American Gangster provides a bit of a jolt. In this Ridley Scott-directed project, Washington plays Frank Lucas, a loyal family man/leader of a crime ring in 1970s Harlem. It's that scary thing, not unlike Tom Hanks' character in Road to Perdition, where you think you know that kindhearted member of your family until they turn out to be a cold-blooded member of the Mafia. Rusell Crowe costars as the roguish cop on Lucas' trail, looking convincingly dowdy. Special bonus: My man Chiwetel Ejiofor also stars.

The trailer is chilling and fully has that New York-in-the-1970s look, so to watch,
