Black Mass

"'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

You can still see the first look photo from Black Mass right here.

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 โ€œWhiteyโ€ 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?

Awesome! Added to the most anticipated list. Great cast!

NathanDewey on Apr 23, 2015


ok... that was good.

Butchy Butch on Apr 23, 2015


Daaaamn, I got chills with that. Depp looks creepy as hell and acted it as well. Not familiar with the story but I'm feeling it.

Justin R on Apr 23, 2015


As a former Bostonian, I am all over this movie. It looks wicked awesome!

Movie Bear on Apr 23, 2015


Wicked is right! All hail Whitey!

TheBoss on Apr 23, 2015


Now, that was good one-man show ...

There was a rumor that this kid 'Johnny Depp' was considered the best actor of his generation......

Duane on Apr 23, 2015


Well that was just a rumor for sure!!

Bill Lange on May 13, 2015


Ripped a bit from the "funny how?" scene from GoodFellas, but Depp looks really strong as Whitey and the rest looks pretty good interest in this movie just went up a whole lot.

cuckoozey on Apr 23, 2015


Not really. Pesci's character in GF was dangerous but in that scene he was just kidding around... while in this trailer there is no joke. Depp's character means what he says - Even if he laughs it off in the end, the threat is real.

Terry Craig on Apr 23, 2015


Depp looks like a white walker.

rickvanr on Apr 23, 2015


Boom...immediate excitement.

Xerxexx on Apr 23, 2015


I really struggle to enjoy Depp anymore, also felt like the Goodfellas scene... Will give it a shot though.

petermccormack on Apr 23, 2015


How do you struggle to enjoy him when he's that good.. ?

Willy Billy on May 6, 2015


The contact lenses are a little bit distracting in their looking fake, but they sure do manage to make him look super creepy. Great monologue and chilling delivery... I really want this movie to live up to what it promises because so far I am *hooked*

Terry Craig on Apr 23, 2015


Disagree. They dont look fake to me.

Sascha Dikiciyan on Apr 23, 2015


I actually agree with you. they look flawless.

Jon Odishaw on Apr 24, 2015


But will they say, "Rico Case"?

DAVIDPD on Apr 23, 2015


This looks great. Great to see Depp when he's not working with Burton. He looks incredible in this.

Jonathan on Apr 23, 2015


Damn. That looks gosh darn swell.

grimjob on Apr 23, 2015


The pictures makes it look too gay for my taste

ErrorSapiens on Apr 23, 2015


The pictures aren't as gay as your statement is retarded.

ocp on Apr 24, 2015


No worries.. just a troll copying my profile. Sallyspider.. hes been wishing death upon the users of this forum for some time now. He didnt like my burn, and tried to make it personal.. so cute ๐Ÿ™‚

ErrorSapiens on Apr 24, 2015


I couldnt take getting my sore arsetroll hind verbally smacked, so now I sit alone in bitterness while masturbating and impersonating other users on Disqus. Following the law of the arsetroll ๐Ÿ™‚

SallySpider on Apr 23, 2015


Oh my, that looked great. Also felt like a quick reminder that despite his recent poor roles, Johnny Depp does have the acting-chops.

Snev De la Fontaine on Apr 24, 2015


Holy crap. I love it. Feels like something from Scorcese.

Danimal on Apr 24, 2015


Seems like a great film. Just sayin'.

Nielsen700 on Apr 24, 2015


Did they just rip the Joe Pesci GoodFellas scene?

John Doe on Apr 25, 2015



Willy Billy on May 6, 2015



John Doe on May 6, 2015


YEP!! I thought the same thing!! This is gonna flop for sure, they should have used a different actor, maybe Clooney, or even Pesci himself, Depp looks like a clown in this get-up!!

Bill Lange on May 13, 2015


And to think, Mr. Depp's most convincing performance yet is just him, only fatter, balding, and with blue eyes. *Shivers*.

Mark Brackney on Apr 25, 2015

Mark Brackney on May 6, 2015


Looks like another incredible performance from Depp.
