John Travolta plays a charismatic Gambino crime boss, John Gotti in the new movie trailer (above) for Gotti.
“Famed mobster John Gotti grew up in poverty in the Bronx, turning to a life of crime when he was still young. Gotti’s talents allowed him to quickly rise in the criminal underworld, and in the mid-’80s he murdered his way to the top of the infamous Gambino crime family. As boss of the Gambino family, the charming and flamboyant Gotti became a prominent New York media figure, becoming known as “The Dapper Don” for his personal style and “The Teflon Don” for his ability to escape prosecution. The teflon wore off after Gotti’s accomplice Sammy “The Bull” Gravano was flipped by the FBI and Gotti was sent to federal prison, ultimately dying behind bars in 2002.”
