An Empire Magazine exclusive trailer for the highly anticipated thriller Black Mass has just dropped online and sees Johnny Depp (Pirates Of The Caribbean) as notorious gangster James 'Whitey' Bulger, the brother of a state senator and the most infamous criminal in the history of South Boston who became an FBI informant to take down a Mafia family invading his territory.
From director Scott Cooper (Out Of The Furnace, Crazy Heart) comes this true story crime drama that looks like it could certainly be up for some awards early next year.
For a long time Johnny Depp has been off of his game, and Black Mass looks like it could be his return to form. His performance looks completely transformative and quite scary, there's already a lot of talk about his performance being nominated for on Oscar.
The film boasts an incredible cast; Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game), Joel Edgerton (The Gift), Corey Stoll (Ant-Man), Dakota Johnson (Fifty Shades Of Grey), Kevin Bacon (Cop Car), Peter Sarsgaard (Blue Jasmine) and Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad) all star alongside Depp in his unrecognizable role.
Black Mass is a story of double crosses, violence and crime. I was already very excited for the film but this trailer has made me even more so. This is a very exciting trailer for what looks to be an excellent film.
Black Mass hits cinemas September 18th (US) and November 11th (UK).
