Warning! This synopsis contains spoilers

In the action-thriller Public Enemies, acclaimed filmmaker Michael Mann directs Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Academy Award? winner Marion Cotillard in the incredible and true story of legendary Depression-era bank robber John Dillinger (Depp)the charismatic bank robber whose lightning raids made him the number one target of J. Edgar Hoovers fledgling FBI and its top agent, Melvin Purvis (Bale), and a folk hero to much of the downtrodden public. No one could stop Dillinger. No jail could hold him. His charm and audacious jailbreaks endeared him to almost everyonefrom his girlfriend Billie Frechette (Cotillard) to an American public who had no sympathy for the banks that had plunged the country into the Depression. But while the adventures of Dillinger's ganglater including the sociopathic Baby Face Nelson (Stephen Graham)thrilled many, Hoover (Billy Crudup) hit on the idea of exploiting the outlaw's capture as a way to elevate his Bureau of Investigation into the national police force that became the FBI. He made Dillinger America's first Public Enemy Number One. Hoover sent in Purvis, the dashing "Clark Gable of the FBI". However, Dillinger and his gang outwitted and outgunned Purvis' men in wild chases and shootouts. Only after importing a crew of Western ex-lawmen (newly baptized as agents) who were real gunfighters and orchestrating epic betrayals from the infamous "Lady in Red" to the Chicago crime boss Frank Nittiwere Purvis and the FBI able to close in on Dillinger.

I didn't knew that Michael Mann is directing this movie just until I did a little research about this movie. Good thing that Michael is teaming first time with "Christian bale and Johnny Depp". I cannot wait for this one. The plot sounds original and worth watching.

Christian Bale ...  Melvin Purvis
Johnny Depp ...  John Dillinger
Channing Tatum ...  Pretty Boy Floyd

That actually looks very interesting, I'll have to keep an eye on it.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.

Yeah, more of a period piece, looks intriguing.  Though I'll reserve my judgement till more info comes out.

Is that what he's doing? I noticed that! There was something odd about the film...why does he do that? It doesn't look as cinematic.

It looks awesome. Some people are thinking this could be an Academy Award winner. I agree with them. This looks fantastic by means of action, drama, and everything else.
