From "Gangster Squad" to "Burt Wonderstone" — not to mention the return of Spock and Capt. Kirk, here's what's on this year's watch list
"GANGSTER SQUAD" (Jan. 11): This pulpy crime thriller will start the New Year off with a bang. Literally. Ruben Fleischer's adaptation of Paul Lieberman's book of the same name features cops throwing down their badges and picking up Tommy guns to battle L.A.'s most ruthless crime boss, Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn). The excessive gunfire may be a turn off for some, but Ryan Gosling's baby blue eyes might be able to turn them back on.
