Johnny Depp is teaching lessons in new trailer for ‘Black Mass’

5 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Johnny Depp can still act? It appears so after this new trailer for the upcoming Black Mass.

A new trailer for Depp’s latest film debuted on Sunday and displayed that the actor could be in for an acting renaissance after this performance that could land him in awards season for once. The film also stars Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Dakota Johnson, Kevin Bacon, Adam Scott, and Corey Stoll.

The first trailer gave us an idea of what to expect, but this one digs more into the plot.

Directed by Scott Cooper, the new trailer dives into the psyche of mobster Whitey Bulger (Depp) as he goes about his business — and dishes out life lessons. It also gives us a glimpse at the big cast, which features a host of large names, making this a must see later this year.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Johnny Depp has sponsored an orphaned bat

8 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Johnny Depp has sponsored an orphaned bat.

The ‘Mortdecai’ actor reportedly decided to take the injured creature under his wing after it was found close to the set of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales’, which he is currently filming in Australia.

The 51-year-old actor offered to pay for the bat’s medical care after it was rescued by the The Australian Bat Clinic and named Jacki Sparrow after Jonny’s character Jack Sparrow in the pirate movie franchise.

The Bat Clinic’s director Trish Wimberley told Daily Mail Australia: “He was very interested in it (Jacki Sparrow) and so we asked if Johnny would like to sponsor her, because we do sponsor little babies and he said yes.

“We’re going to be sending Johnny an adoption certificate and little update photos, which is what we normally do with our sponsors.”

Johnny Depp Could Face Up to 10 Years in Prison for Smuggling His Yorkshire Terriers Boo and Pistol Into Australia

13 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Australia takes its quarantine laws very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that Johnny Depp could live to regret his decision to illegally bring his dogs into the country. An Australian Senate committee was told on Monday that if the matter goes to court and the 51-year-old actor is found guilty, he could face up to 10 years in prison or a maximum fine of $265,000. Depp, who had been filming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in Queensland, injured his hand in March and flew back to the U.S. to undergo surgery. When he returned in April via a private jet, Depp did not declare his Yorkshire Terriers, Boo and Pistol, breaking the country's strict quarantine laws. In fact, according to The »

The 57 Greatest Westerns Ever, Ranked

17 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's fitting that Clint Eastwood and John Wayne both have the same birthday week. (Wayne, who died in 1979, was born May 26, 1907, while Eastwood turns 85 on May 31). After all, these two all-American actors' careers span the history of that most American of movie genres, the western.

Both iconic actors were top box office draws for decades, both seldom stretched from their familiar personas, and both played macho, conservative cowboy heroes who let their firearms do most of the talking. Each represented one of two very different strains of western, the traditional and the revisionist.

As a birthday present to Hollywood's biggest heroes of the Wild West, here are the top 57 westerns you need to see.

57. 'Meek's Cutoff' (2010)

Indie filmmaker Kelly Reichardt and her frequent leading lady, Michelle Williams, are the talents behind this sparse, docudrama about an 1845 wagon train whose Oregon Trail journey goes horribly awry. It's an intense »

Variety Critics Debate the Best and Worst of Cannes 2015

25 May 2015 3:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Peter Debruge: Well, I didn’t see that coming. In what feels like a twist ending — one that leaves me feeling a bit like Tim Roth at the end of “Chronic” — the Cannes jury has awarded the Palme d’Or to “Dheepan,” a movie that lags among my least favorites in the competition, and the weakest in Jacques Audiard’s filmography.

People have been throwing the word “weak” around a lot this week, grousing that the official selection doesn’t measure up to that of previous years. I defer to you, Scott and Justin, since you’ve each been attending Cannes for longer than I have (this is only my fifth time on the Croisette), but if there’s one thing I’ve learned in my time here, it’s that Cannes critics always like to complain that the present year’s crop feels meager by comparison to past editions, »

New trailer for Black Mass with Johnny Depp

25 May 2015 2:08 PM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

For years now, Johnny Depp has being prancing around doing his one trick pony schtick. From pirates to Injuns, he's been buried deep behind a tonne of make up and prosthetics. However, as the latest trailer for Black Mass shows, Depp's acting prowess (which is hard to remember these days) is bubbling to the surface at a furious pace! Stick this into your must see list! Released: 18th September (U.S.)/ 25th September (Irl/U.K.)Synopsis: 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. »

Johnny Depp returns to the life of crime in new Black Mass trailer

25 May 2015 11:47 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Johnny Depp is no stranger to over-the-top costumes and makeup. Basically all of his roles require some kind of physical transformation, whether that means a giant top hat and crazy orange wig for Alice in Wonderland, or ghostly-white makeup and prosthetic blade-hands in Edward Scissorhands.

He’s at it again, transforming into real-life criminal Whitey Bulger for this year’s Black Mass. Practically unrecognizable as the Boston gangster, Depp sports ice-blue contacts and a serious bald spot. Doing double duty as both a violent criminal and an FBI informant, Depp plays Bulger at the most complicated time in his life.

Black Mass also stars Dakota Johnson as Bulger’s wife, Benedict Cumberbatch as Bulger’s state senator brother, as well as Juno Temple, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon, and Corey Stoll.

Johnny Depp Brings Terror To The Neighborhood In Full Black Mass Trailer

25 May 2015 11:34 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It.s certainly been awhile since gotten a worthy Johnny Depp performance. And with his last film Mortdecai embarrassingly tanking, it.s about damn time the critically acclaimed actor step up his game. And what better way to do so then by playing a terrifyingly badass Boston gangster. Watch as Depp brings terror to his neighborhood in the latest trailer for Black Mass. Johnny Depp.s crazy new look is something of terrible nightmares, but on top of that, the character he is portraying is one of the most notorious Boston gangsters to ever live. The craziest thing about this character though, is that he seems like an alright guy. He was beloved by the people of his neighborhood, as you can see by the older woman welcoming him back. Despite his ruthless nature, Whitey was viewed as an almost Robin Hood figure, protecting and serving his neighborhood. »

‘Tomorrowland’ Exposes Hollywood’s Originality Problem

25 May 2015 11:08 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tomorrowland’s” middling debut points to a nagging problem in Hollywood. As much as people claim they love fresh and unique movies, they’re more likely to shell out money for sequels and reboots.

Despite the combined star power of George Clooney and “The Incredibles” director Brad Bird, audiences weren’t sure what to make of this fantasy adventure. The film opened to $41.7 million, and with a production budget of $180 million, plus millions more in promotion and distribution expenses, “Tomorrowland” looks like a money loser for Disney.

“‘Tomorrowland’ is an original movie and that’s more of a challenge in this marketplace,” said Dave Hollis, Disney’s distribution chief. “We feel it’s incredibly important for us as a company and as an industry to keep telling original stories.”

Hollis is right that if Hollywood wants to replenish the franchise cupboard it will need to continue signing big checks in »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Actor

25 May 2015 9:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Best Actor could once again (as it almost always is these days) be an ultra-competitive race full of some of major A-listers. Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp, Will Smith, Bradley Cooper (going for his fourth nomination in a row), Robert Redford (who has never won for acting, and is coming off that "All Is Lost" snub) Michael Fassbender (with three juicy roles), Jake Gyllenhaal (with two, and coming off not being nominated for "Nightcrawler") and Don Cheadle -- all of whom have never won -- have films coming out this year that scream Oscar (at least on paper) and all of them are due. They might have to compete against someone who is definitely not due, though, as Eddie Redmayne could be in the running again for his role as a transgender artist in Tom Hooper's "The Danish Girl." Could Eddie Redmayne be the next Tom Hanks or Spencer Tracy, »

New 'Black Mass' Trailer Is Surprisingly Funny, But Does It Glorify Whitey Bulger?

25 May 2015 4:50 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The first trailer for "Black Mass" revealed the danger of sharing family recipes, and the second trailer -- released over Memorial Day weekend -- showcases Johnny Depp's Whitey Bulger making more speeches, killing more people, and charming at least one old lady.

This time, Bulger shares some not-so-wise advice for his son: "It's not what you do, it's when and where you do it, and who you do it to or with. If nobody sees it, it didn't happen." Dakota Johnson's Lindsey Cyr responds, "Jimmy, he's 6. You really think that's the best thing to be telling a kid?" Bulger's response: "Yeah."

Yeah, best to learn early not to get caught. The rest of the trailer is mostly filled with action shots, typical gangster stuff -- guns, money, club scene -- set to the song "The Devil Is a Lie" by Rick Ross featuring Jay Z, and punctuated by »

Top 20 Most Profitable Movies That Are Terrible

25 May 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Movies that make money don’t always do so because they’re good. Here’s our list of underwhelming movies that happened to overwhelm the box office.

While the box office is a good, general representation of the popularity of a film, it is not necessarily an indicator of quality. Yes, it is true that most of the highest grossing movies have also received favorable reviews from critics and audiences alike, that’s often what makes them a hit, but there are some exceptions. This is a list of those exceptions. This is a list of those movies that did spectacularly well at the box office, but ended up being an inferior product.

So why would so many people want to see a terrible film? Why would they waste their hard-earned money and fleeting free time? The answer is actually pretty simple. Many of these films share a lot of common traits. »
