American Gangster (2007)

The life story of North Carolina gangster Frank Lucas was brought to the big screen by Russell Crowe, Denzel Washington, Chiwetel EjioforCuba Gooding, Jr. and Josh Brolin and several other heavy-hitters. American Gangster took six years to get into production, but was clearly worth the wait: it topped the box office in its opening weekend and grossed more than $130 million.
