Watch: Johnny Depp Intimidates at Dinner in 'Black Mass' Trailer
"'Just sayin” could get you buried real quick." Yesterday brought our first look at a balding Johnny Depp as he takes on the role of real life crime boss Whitey Bulger in the new crime drama Black Mass from Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper. And today brings the first intense trailer for the film that looks like it actually features an interesting performance from Depp. Somehow, the actor looks more creepy balding and with blue eyes than he has as any of his other cooky characters. The trailer prominently features a tense dinner scene, and it gives off a vibe that this performance from Depp could be an awards contender. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Scott Cooper's Black Mass, originally from Apple:

Black Mass is directed by Scott Cooper (Out of the Furnace, Crazy Heart) and written by Jez Butterworth (Edge of Tomorrow, Get on Up) and newcomer Mark Mallouk. 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. Benedict Cumberbatch, Adam Scott and more star in the film Warner Bros. Pictures releases this fall September 18th. Interested?
