Dakota Johnson joins a bloated-looking Johnny Depp on red carpet for Black Mass press conference in Toronto.

Director Scott Cooper offers as much a portrait of Boston 1970’s FBI and Whitey Bulger’s agent-pal John Connolly as he does the notorious crime boss himself, in all Johnny Depp’s creepy make-up glory.Johnny Depp was in jovial spirits at a press convention for his new film Black Mass on Monday, however he emphasised the “super duty” of enjoying an actual individual, not fictional, larger-than-life characters of the type he has taken on earlier than.TORONTO — In discussing Johnny Depp’s portrayal of the infamous Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger, the actor’s “Black Mass” co-stars were unanimous in expressing awe at how the actor totally transformed himself into the vicious killer and mob boss.

As Johnny Depp and Dakota Johnson continue to promote their new movie Black Mass, the actors showed off rather contrasting looks on the red carpet on Monday.Back in August, Coolidge Corner Theatre announced that it’ll host a private screening for members of the cast in Whitey Bulger biopic Black Mass, though it was mum on specifics. The movie shows Mike Donahue gunned down as he drove in a car with an intended target. “I’m definitely not going to watch it or go see it,” Patricia Donahue says. “I don’t want to see a reenactment of my husband being killed.” Donahue didn’t appreciate producers not contacting victims’ families when filming during the trial, but hopes the public will see Bulger for the psychopathic killer he is, “And not this nice guy, this Robin Hood as they had portrayed at one point.” Scenes show a more human side of Bulger, helping an elderly woman with groceries, mourning the deaths of his young son and mother. Earlier than the media occasion started, Depp was fascinating photographers together with his charisma, scary roars of laughter matching the flurry of digital camera clicks on his arrival. “It’s been the thrust of my curiosity since day one once I was about 19.

Bulger, long near the top of the FBI’s “Most Wanted” list (right under Osama bin Laden), remained on the lam for 16 years, until being apprehended in 2011 and ultimately convicted to life in prison for 19 murders and other crimes. The event takes place Tuesday, and representatives for the movie just confirmed that Whitey Bulger actor Johnny Depp will indeed be in attendance, as well as his costars Dakota Johnson, Julianne Nicholson, Rory Cochrane, Jesse Plemons, and David Harbour. The film includes a scene where Bulger instructs his son to use violence on the playground in a covert manner. “If somebody tried to bully my kid, if they didn’t destroy the little booger, I would” Depp said. As we chatted Sunday during the Toronto International Film Festival about “Black Mass” (opening Friday), Depp’s co-star Joel Edgerton (who plays morally conflicted FBI agent John Connolly) said, “I’m fascinated by Johnny, and even more so after making this film with him.

When asked on NBC’s Today Show last week about working with Depp, Johnson gushed: ‘It was so wonderful and special,’ she said. ‘Such a lucky situation to be able to work closely and intimately with one of the most phenomenal actors of our time. He referred to the advice given in the film as “not at all strange”. “First thing I did is contact Bulger’s lawyer Jake Carney to request the opportunity to meet the real Jimmy Bulger,” he said. “I wanted to hear his take. It’s really awesome.’ And in a recent interview with AnOther she talked more about her time on set with the Pirates Of The Caribbean heartthrob and how they bonded over their mutual friendship with author Hunter S. Carney that said: Jimmy respectfully declines as he is not a great fan of the book [that the film is based on].” The role is seen as a comeback of sorts for Depp, who has been in a string of critical and commercial flops from Dark Shadows to The Lone Ranger to Transcendence.

He went into hiding in December 1994 and remained at large until he was arrested outside an apartment in Santa Monica, California, along with his then girlfriend Catherine Greig. The position required Depp to grasp the intricacies of a South Boston accent, and director Cooper to wrestle with discovering “his” information about Bulger whereas avoiding the “fools errand” of making an attempt to make a movie in the identical crime and gangster style as his movie-making heroes, Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese. “The reality proved very elusive,” Cooper stated. “I’m not making a documentary.
