New "Public Enemies" official poster

Here's one of the official posters for the new Michael Mann crime flick "Public Enemies" staring Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, Giovanni Ribisi, Stephen Dorff, Leelee Sobieski and Marion Cotillard:

It looks like a costumer and art director's dream. Period flicks are always a challenge, which is why they usually get recognized come Oscar time. Not that I'm saying that this will be an Oscar-worthy production, I dont know just yet. But if the costumes are any indication, watch out.

The film is scheduled for a July 1st release and is an adaptation of Bryan Burrough's book "Public Enemies: America's Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI, 1933–34"

From Wikipedia:

The crime drama is set during the Great Depression with the focus on the FBI
agent Melvin Purvis' attempt to stop criminals John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson,
and Pretty Boy Floyd. Christian Bale will play FBI agent Purvis, Johnny Depp
will play Dillinger, and Marion Cotillard will play Dillinger's girlfriend
Billie Frechette.

Nothing like a good gangster action flick to get the 4th of July weekend off to a bang. The movie's official site isn't up yet, but when it goes live we'll let you know.

Stay tuned.
