Movie Media: Street Kings - Poster, Trailer

Just what we need, another cop drama. Well, why not? I don't know, just felt like saying that. Street Kings actually looks pretty decent. It centers on a cop dealing with the loss of his wife who becomes implicated in the murder of another officer turns to the streets to follow leads and ends up questioning everyone's loyalties. The cast includes Keanu Reeves, Forest Whitaker, Hugh Laurie, Chris Evans, Common, and The Game. The creative team has a lot of experience in the genre with first time director David Ayers (writer: Harsh Times, Dark Blue, Training Day), and writers James Ellroy (LA Confidential, Dark Blue), Kurt Wimmer (The Recruit, Equilibrium), and first timer Jamie Moss. The trailer is pretty good, but the poster gives me a Ocean's X vibe.
