Black Mass — Trailer


added: Thu, Apr 23rd '15

A nearly unrecognizable Johnny Depp taps into his inner "goodfella" to play one of Boston's most notorious gangsters, Irish mobster James "Whitey" Bulger, in the first trailer for "Black Mass," which comes from "Crazy Heart" and "Out of the Furnace" director Scott Cooper.

Depp, who is unfortunately coming off a major box-office slump, could be turning things around as he returns to the true-crime gangster genre for the first time since starring in 2001's "Blow" and 1997's "Donnie Brasco." In addition to the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star, the film's cast is loaded with top-notch talent, which includes Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon, Jesse Plemons, Peter Sarsgaard, Dakota Johnson, and Corey Stoll -- not to mention also appearances by Adam Scott, David Harbour, Rory Cochrane and Sienna Miller.

The upcoming film is set in the 70s and will tell how FBI Agent John Connolly (Edgerton) turned the notorious gangster into an FBI informant, but also allowed him to continue to reign the Boston's underworld. (Bulger's real-life story was one of the main inspirations for Jack Nicholson's role in Martin Scorsese's Oscar-winning crime film "The Departed".)

"Black Mass" will be coming to theaters on September 18th.

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.
