It certainly looks like Johnny Depp is out to silence his critics who claim that he’s forgotten how to act with his turn as Boston mobster, Whitey Bulger. Depp look absolutely terrifying in this first pitch perfect trailer for Scott Cooper’s upcoming film Black Mass.
Black Mass also stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Dakota Johnson, Sienna Miller, Kevin Bacon, Peter Sarsgaard and Corey Stoll.
The film is set to open in September. Cooper attempted to shoot the film in as many of the actual locations as possible and it shows in the film. I can’t wait to see more on this one.
In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster James “Whitey” Bulger (Johnny Depp) to collaborate with the FBI and eliminate a common enemy: the Italian mob. The drama tells the true story of this unholy alliance, which spiraled out of control, allowing Whitey to evade law enforcement, consolidate power, and become one of the most ruthless and powerful gangsters in Boston history.
