Johnny Depp Chills And Kills As Whitey Bulger In New Black Mass Trailer.

The 107-second tease for the forthcoming Whitey Bulger biopic features star Johnny Depp seated at the dining table, giving some questionable life lessons to his six-year-old son. “It’s not what you do.BOSTON (CBS) – A new trailer for the movie Black Mass provides a look at Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger, who Hollywood dubs “The most notorious gangster in U.S. history.” Along with Depp’s role as Whitey Bulger, Benedict Cumberbatch plays Bill Bulger.The teaser trailer for we all saw back in April was a good way to introduce Johnny Depp’s take on notorious crime boss James ‘Whitey’ Bulger without giving away an ounce of plot. It’s where and when you do it, and who you do it to—or with,” Depp says as an ominous montage of violence cuts in. “If nobody sees it, it didn’t happen.”

Bulger is played by Johnny Depp, who is nearly unrecognizable, as he takes on the infamous gangster’s male-pattern baldness, added girth, and dead-eyed stare. This one’s just as good as the first, featuring images of savage mob violence cut together with Rick Ross’ blistering “The Devil is a Lie.” “I need you to listen very carefully to what I’m saying, because there are lessons and again and again throughout your whole life. Depp’s career direction these days seems to be the opposite of the daring and quixotic choices in the halcyon years when he was working with Tim Burton one day (“Ed Wood”), Emir Kuristica (“Arizona Dream”) the next, and Jim Jarmusch (“Dead Man”) the following day.

I never really thought of Rick Ross when reading about the dark and depraved crimes carried out by Whitey Bulger as he held the city of Boston in the palm of his hand, but the latest trailer for may have me seeing things differently. In the stranger-than-fiction story, Bulger’s childhood best friend, John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) grew up to be an F.B.I. agent, who brought Bulger into the feds’ fold as an informant to work against their common enemy, the Italian mob. Already demonstrating some ‘Godfather’-ish tones in its early photos and the trailer, in “Black Mass,” Depp puts vanity away and stars as a cold-blooded and infamous true-life mob boss from Boston. Pictures’ film, set in 1970s South Boston, which stars Depp and Edgerton, alongside Kevin Bacon, Dakota Johnson, Jesse Plemons, Sienna Miller, Adam Scott, and, as reported, Benedict Cumberbatch, playing Bulger’s brother.

That said, Depp looks to be giving his all to the role, and that alone gives me a good reason to see the film when it arrives in theaters September 18. The first trailer for Black Mass was dark, focusing on Bulger’s ruthless enthusiasm for violence, but this preview shows the film’s, well, not exactly softer side, but at least a funnier one. 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. It breaks up the relentless gore with moments of levity, like Bulger’s poor parenting or when an elderly neighbor welcomes him back to the neighborhood and congratulates him on his release from Alcatraz ten years ago. He directed Jeff Bridges to an Academy Award win for country singing drama “Crazy Heart” his first time out the gate, and while “Out Of The Furnace” didn’t quite work, it showed a filmmaker channeling ‘70s greats like “The Deer Hunter” and aiming for something much more ambitious and nuanced than you’d expect in a mainstream thriller.

Besides Depp, “Black Mass” stars (take a deep breath) Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jesse Plemons, Kevin Bacon, Rory Cochrane, David Harbour, Dakota Johnson, Julianne Nicholson James Russo, Adam Scott, Corey Stoll, Juno Temple, W.
