New ‘Black Mass’ Trailer Shows Johnny Depp’s Whitey Bulger Giving a Lesson on Morality (Video)

17 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

In the newly released trailer for Warner Bros.’ gangster movie “Black Mass,” Johnny Depp‘s character takes time out to let his son know “If nobody sees it, it didn’t happen.” Depp plays James “Whitey” Bulger, the real-life leader of the Winter Hill Gang, which controlled large parts of South Boston for years through fear and violence. “It’s not what you do. It’s when and where you do it and the who you’re doing it to or with,” Bulger says in the trailer. When his girlfriend (Dakota Johnson) asks if it’s appropriate to tell these »

New Black Mass Trailer Has Life Lessons To Share

20 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The first trailer for Black Mass debuted in April as the film was touted to distributors at CinemaCon, but now here comes a second taste of the true-life gangster drama, which stars Johnny Depp as the notorious James Joseph “Whitey” Bulger. This second promo also features the main man at a dinner table for its framing device, but here he’s eating with his family – wife Lindsey Cyr (Dakota Johnson) and son Douglas (Luke Ryan) – and trying to impart some important lessons to the lad. Which, given his reputation, naturally seem to revolve around getting away with everything including murder.With Out Of The Furnace’s Scott Cooper directing, Black Mass tells the story of Bulger, who masterminded a violent gang in Boston while also reportedly turning federal informant to take down rivals. It seemed to be working out well – particularly with corrupt FBI agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) helping »

Johnny Depp Enjoys Stomping Faces in New 'Black Mass' Trailer (Video)

23 May 2015 6:52 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The new trailer for Black Mass proves why Whitey Bulger probably never received any "world's greatest father" mugs. The crime film stars Johnny Depp as the notorious gangster who teamed with the FBI to bring down a Mafia family. In a creepy exchange from the trailer, Bulger teaches his 6-year-old son that life is full of gray areas. "If nobody sees it, it didn't happen," Bulger says, much to the chagrin of the boy's mother. [readmore:795550] The trailer also shows snippets of various grisly murder scenes, including Bulger using his shoe to teach an adversary a lesson. Director

Depp Is Spot On As Whitey In ‘Black Mass,’ Some Thoughts Video

23 May 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

One thing we know for sure: Johnny Depp does a badass Boston accent.In the film, “Blow,” he played cocaine king George Jung, and nailed that elusive lilt that a Boston accent has (there are actually many variations within Massachusetts of this accent) which is a hard one for a lot of actors. Not Depp. Amazing, considering he hails from Kentucky.Frankly, I’ve been waiting on this movie for long time. Depp transforms into James Joseph “Whitey” Bulger in ‘Black Mass” beautifully, accurately.Personally, Bulger’s real-life crew and their legendary deeds done for the Patriarca family of New England, including local crime boss, […] »

Watch: Johnny Depp Is a Horrible Father in New ‘Black Mass’ Trailer

23 May 2015 12:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Johnny Depp’s real-life character Whitey Bulger isn’t shooting his enemies point-blank or choking them with rope, he’s doling out advice to his 6-year-old son.

Warner Bros.’ first official trailer for the upcoming drama “Black Mass” offers this pearl of wisdom from Depp: “It’s not what you do, it’s when and where you do it, and who you do it to or with,” the most wanted gangster in U.S. history says at the dinner table.

“If nobody sees it, it didn’t happen,” he continues to the disappointment of his girlfriend (“Fifty Shades of Grey” star Dakota Johnson).

The biopic about Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger, who became an FBI informant and used this status as a way to eliminate criminal competition, spans the 1970s, ’80s, and early ’90s.

Black Mass,” directed by Scott Cooper, also stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon, Joel Edgerton and Peter Sarsgaard. »

New 'Black Mass' Trailer Starring Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger

23 May 2015 10:03 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Warner Bros. has released the first full trailer for Black Mass, which finds Johnny Depp in the shoes of gangster James "Whitey" Bulger and it would appear he's bringing the kind of performance we've been craving from Depp for some time. This isn't to say Jack Sparrow wasn't a hit when he first showed up in 2003, but since then the drunken pirate has been evident in nearly every Depp performance. Not so here. Starring alongside Joel Edgerton as FBI Agent John Connolly, this '70s set crime drama finds Bulger collaborating with the FBI in an effort to eliminate a common enemy: the Italian mob. Directed by Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart, Out of the Furnace), the film tells the 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. »

Rick Ross and Jay Z meet Whitey Bulger in new 'Black Mass' trailer

22 May 2015 9:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We already got one taste of Scott Cooper's upcoming Whitey Bulger gangster saga "Black Mass" on the heels of CinemaCon. That teaser trailer, framed by an unsettling moment over a dinner table, introduced us to just what Johnny Depp is doing in the lead role. A new taste, courtesy of the UK trailer for the film, adds some style to the equation. Anachronism be damned, they just went ahead and dropped Rick Ross and Jay Z's "The Devil is a Lie" over flashy images of Bulger's life of crime in and around Boston, talking to little old ladies in the neighborhood, smashing his foot into some dude's face, etc. Awesome. And the sell continues to do exactly what you'd expect it to: play up Depp's transformation. But obviously this cast is stacked: Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon, Jesse Plemons, Peter Sarsgaard, Dakota Johnson, Corey Stoll, Juno Temple, »

We won’t know until September if Black Mass, the long-overdue biopic about notorious Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger, is going to be any good, but the trailers, at least, are riveting. The newest features Johnny Depp’s spectacularly creepy take on Bulger, seen here dispensing life advice to a 6-year-old, strolling around his neighborhood, and of course straight up killing people willy nilly.

‘Black Mass’ Trailer: Maybe Whitey Bulger Shouldn’t Be Giving Advice

“If nobody sees it,” Whitey Bulger tells his six-year old son in this new Black Mass trailer, “it didn’t happen.” But much of what we’ll see in this movie did happen, as Bulger, played here by Johnny Depp, was among the most notorious gangsters in Boston’s history — hell, in Us history. He topped the […]

New Black Mass Trailer: Johnny Depp Goes Gangster

22 May 2015 6:16 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. has released a new Black Mass trailer for writer/director Scott Cooper's (Crazy HeartOut of the Furnace) upcoming drama.  The film stars Johnny Depp as notorious crime boss Whitey Bulger, who simultaneously worked as an FBI informant and committed horrible crimes throughout the Boston area for decades. Cooper's film follows Bulger's criminal career through multiple decades of terror. I like what I'm seeing here. The trailer has personality and it's fun - the latter being a quality that is lacking in most crime sagas. It's great to see Depp doing some serious acting for the first time in over a decade and honestly, it looks like he's going to kill it. Depp is an actor known for relying heavily on costume to make himself "unrecognizable", but this is some of the best work I've seen in that regard. And let's not forget about that supporting cast. »

Watch: Johnny Depp Turns Cold-Blooded Mob Boss In The New Trailer For Crime Drama ‘Black Mass’

22 May 2015 6:06 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Did Johnny Depp show up to play this time? 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. Now the actor’s career seems to be dictated by what his audience wants, or the bundles of cash they send his way after starring in the umpteenth ‘Pirates’ movie. Could this all change with the crime drama “Black Mass,” which looks like it could even be fall film contender? 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. Here’s the official synopsis: In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly persuades »

Before we take a walk intrepidly through my Into The Woods review, I’ll make the confession that Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s classic is one of the only musicals I know really well. It comes from working at a famous outdoor theatre in London some years back and being part of the team who worked behind the version directed by Timothy Sheader. This was my first encounter with Sondheim and I came to »

Movie Review – Spy (2015)

22 May 2015 8:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spy, 2015.

Written and Directed by Paul Feig.

Starring Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne, Jason Statham, Jude Law, Bobby Cannavale and Morena Baccarin.

Synopsis:

A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster.

Martin Scorsese has Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert DeNiro, Tim Burton has Johnny Depp, and Paul Feig has Melissa McCarthy. Some actor/director combinations fit like a glove, and for the third straight outing (Bridesmaids and The Heat) we have another success with Spy.

Unexpectedly, there is also an admirable amount of unexplored range channeled from Melissa McCarthy, not portraying the sassy, loudmouthed, obscene character right out of the gate that we have grown accustomed to. Instead, she plays Susan Cooper, a CIA field operative assistant of 10 years with low self-esteem that decides to jump into the heart of the action when her good friend Bradley Fine »

Lionsgate Execs Reveal Why ‘Power Rangers’ Was Banished to January; Future of ‘Odyssey’

22 May 2015 7:28 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer and fellow executives shared their plans and optimism Friday morning for the company’s coming film slate, which financially underwhelmed in its most-recent quarter due primarily to Johnny Depp‘s “Mortdecai” flopping. Pushing the upcoming rebooted “Power Rangers” from July to January isn’t exactly a move suggesting confidence. Executives warned reporters and analysts not to look too far into that move from summer to winter. “We’re very excited and with Dean’s vision; we felt very comfortable looking for opportunistic dating,” Lionsgate Motion Pictures Group Co-Chairman Rob Friedman explained the move on the conference call. »
