With a set of premieres revealed for Toronto International Film Festival and Venice Film Festival, even if you can’t make it there, one will be able to see Black Mass sooner than most festival titles. The Johnny Depp-led biopic surrounding the dangerous Irish, Boston-based mobster Whitey Bulger will arrive in September and today brings yet another new trailer.
Marking Scott Cooper‘s follow-up to Out of the Furnace, the impressive cast includes 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. Earl Brown, Bill Camp, Brad Carter, and Jeremy Strong. Check out the new trailer and poster below.
In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster James “Whitey” Bulger (Johnny Depp) to collaborate with the FBI and eliminate a common enemy: the Italian mob. 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.
Black Mass opens on September 18th.
