A month or so ago we caught wind of Johnny Depp’s new movie Black Mass and posted it to WayneDupree.com. Now a more lengthy trailer has been released and if you wanted to see the movie initially, your juices will be flowing with this one.
Based on a true story, the Warner Bros. crime drama focuses on Bulger’s path from brother of a state senator to notorious Boston crime boss. Starting in the 1970s and ending in the 2010s, the film follows his ascent from small-time thug to one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives.[average_score]Along the way, he becomes an FBI informant, partly to keep himself out of legal trouble but also to bring down mob members who are encroaching on his turf. As the trailer reveals, this cooperation with law enforcement actually allows his violent crime to continue and expand.

The latest Black Mass trailer gives us another look at Depp as infamous Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger, but this time, it’s from a new angle. While the previous preview focused on Depp’s chilling character, we now get more of Bulger’s backstory and how he built his criminal empire.
The cast also boasts Kevin Bacon, Dakota Johnson, Peter Sarsgaard, Jesse Plemons, Corey Stoll, Rory Cochrane, Sienna Miller, and more. Written by Mark Mallouk and Jez Butterworth, Black Mass is directed by Scott Cooper.
