Fans jam Coolidge Corner to see Johnny Depp, ‘Black Mass’ stars.

In the new film , Johnny Depp plays infamous gangster James “Whitey” Bulger. Johnny Depp, Dakota Johnson and the rest of the stars of “Black Mass” came to Brookline last night for the U.S. premiere of the Whitey Bulger flick and were greeted by hundreds of cheering, chanting fans who apparently had no hard feelings about Hollywood taking on one of the uglier chapters in Boston history.A movie about gangster James ”Whitey” Bulger’s violent reign as leader of Boston’s criminal underworld got its first screening in the state Tuesday.The city learned about Coolidge Corner Theatre’s decision to host a screening of Black Mass weeks ago, but when Johnny Depp RSVPed, it meant chaos would inevitably ensue.The film looks at Bulger’s reign as the boss of the Irish-American underworld and the connections he forged with the FBI which used him as a paid informer in order to crack down on the rival Italian-American mafia. “I approached James Bulger as a human being who … was multifaceted and did have a side to him that was … human, loving and all that,” Depp said at a news conference.

Walsh said he will “probably” see “Black Mass,” the upcoming blockbuster film detailing the life and misdeeds of notorious Boston crime lord James “Whitey” Bulger. “I think there is a lot of excitement about seeing the movie,” Walsh said. “People have read the book and they know the story here in Boston. Julianne Nicholson, the Medford homegal who has been getting boffo reviews for her turn as rogue FBI agent John Connolly’s wife, said she’s sure some of her former neighbors won’t be thrilled about the Bulger saga being resurrected on the big screen. “I’m sure it will be a mixed bag,” she told the Track. “I’m sure some people will love it and I’m sure some other people don’t want the story told, and I understand that take on it, and they will not be happy.” “Well, it’s one of those things where they own the rights to any version and any story that has anything to do with that part of history, and deservedly so,” he said. “This is just one version of the story … and you can’t please everyone, but hopefully the entertainment value and the caliber of the actors they have here, they’ll be pleased and not want their money back.” Depp, who made an amazing physical transformation to play Bulger, showed up to the screening at the Coolidge Corner Theatre with his wife, Amber Heard, in tow. The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star walked the red carpet about halfway, then broke off to go across the street and greet the hundreds of fans who were chanting, “Johnny! Some gawkers held signs welcoming supporting cast members such as Dakota Johnson, but the A-lister that most people hoped to see was Johnny Depp, who plays the notorious crime boss in the film.

Pulling up to Harvard Street in Brookline at 4:30 on Tuesday evening—an hour and a half before celebrities were supposed to arrive—hundreds were already lined up against a set of barricades that stretched along the sidewalks. Johnny!” He spent about a half-hour signing autographs and posing for pictures and was joined by his co-star Johnson, who looked fab in a white and silver dress, as she pressed the flesh. However, Jesse Plemons, who played Kevin Weeks, director Scott Cooper and Scituate actress Erica McDermott, who played Billy Bulger’s wife, Mary, did walk the carpet. “It didn’t feel like work, I can tell you that much,” she laughed. “It was really exciting. It’s his life, and I’m playing him onscreen,” Depp saying, noting that it was important that his performance capture as much as possible of the truth – Bulger’s, that of his associates and that of Bulger’s victims.

But the movie has also drawn criticism from victims’ relatives, who say Hollywood is glamorizing a man who terrorized Boston for decades. “It’s amazing. Carney, Bulger “respectfully declined” to participate in the making of the film, “based on the fact that it’s a film that stems from a book that he’s not, let’s say, most enthusiastic about. Meanwhile, helicopters hovered above the theater, which was adorned with a red carpet and large “Black Mass” posters featuring Depp in the aviator sunglasses and tight-fitting leather jacket that Bulger sported in the 1970s. Cast members began arriving shortly after 6:30 p.m., to rousing cheers from the crowd, many of whom stood on tiptoe and held up cellphones to snap photos from hundreds of yards away. He said he was thankful for Carney’s help. “The most difficult thing is when you’re dealing with a person who exists, and you know he’s a man, and certainly a man of honor in regards to the people he loved,” Depp said. “The responsibility is to do the right thing by that person, no matter how good the person is deemed, no matter how bad the person is deemed.
