Universal Pictures has announced that the industry screening for the upcoming drama "American Gangster," starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe, will be held Monday, October 29, 2007 at the ArcLight Hollywood in Los Angeles, California.

"American Gangster" is based on the life of drug-kingpin-turned-informant, Frank Lucas, who grew up in segregated North Carolina where he eventually made his way to Harlem and became a heroin kingpin by traveling to Asia's Golden Triangle to make connections; shipping heroin back to the US in the coffins of soldiers killed in Vietnam. Lucas was shadowed by a lawman who finally helped bring the kingpin to justice, and the two then worked together to expose the crooked cops and foreign nationals who made importing heroin so easy.
Opening in theaters on Friday, November 2, 2007, it was recently voted the fourth most anticipated upcoming movie. Check out the Information Page for the movie for more details.
