It's got 1920s classic cars, men with big guns and a nattily-dressed, slightly-mustachioed Steve Buscemi brandishing a cigarette. It's looks just like a scene right out of a gangster movie.

And then you see that it's HBO's just-released trailer for its upcoming new series 'Boardwalk Empire.' Produced by Emmy-winning 'Sopranos' writer Terence Winter AND Martin Scorsese, you know that this show is not just going to be gangster: It's going to be all-out, balls-to-the-wall, bloody gangsta.

And really, this sneak peek at this original series about organized crime at the dawn of the Prohibition era pushes all the right buttons. Elaborate production pieces. Big guns. Women in bright red lipstick and cloche hats. Did we mention the guns?

It's like the rat-a-tat of 'Public Enemies' meets 'Chicago' glitz during Atlantic City's 1920 heyday. Though just going through the show's ensemble cast of actors in and of itself would be enough to extend one's HBO subscription.

In addition to Buscemi, 'Empire's high-octane cast includes a posse of highly-acclaimed Michaels: Michael Shannon ('Revolutionary Road'), Michael Stuhlbarg ('A Serious Man'), Michael Kenneth Williams (badass Omar from 'The Wire') and Michael Pitt ('The Dreamers') as well as Kelly Macdonald ('No Country for Old Men'). Step right up!



The new series is set to premiere in the fall. Who's ready to go to the 'Boardwalk'?
