Warner Bros. has premiered a new trailer for Black Mass, its forthcoming Whitey Bulger biopic starring Johnny Depp. Watch it below.
Black Mass tells the story of Bulger’s tumultuous life in crime, specifically how he became Boston’s most notorious gangster while also shadowing as an FBI informant against the Italian Mafia. As director Scott Cooper (Crazyheart) told Entertainment Weekly, “He could be charming. He could be ruthless. He was like a cobra — you never knew where he could strike.”
The film also stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Dakota Johnson, Kevin Bacon, Joel Edgerton, Adam Scott, Juno Temple, Corey Stoll, Peter Sarsgaard, and Jesse Plemons. Cooper penned the screenplay, which was based on Dick Lehr and Gerard O’Neill’s 2001 novel, Black Mass: The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob. Shooting wrapped last August.
Looks for it in theaters beginning September 28th. You can revisit the film’s first trailer here.
