The Gift sees Jason Bateman play tech salesman Simon, who returns to his home town in California with his wife Robyn, played by Rebecca Hall. The couple soon encounter Joel Edgerton’s Gordo, an acquaintance of Simon’s from school. Gordo at first seems generous and helpful, leaving gifts for the couple and making himself useful around the house, but there’s an intensity to him and inconsistencies in his actions that begin to disturb. Pretty soon, Robyn becomes convinced that Gordo’s intentions are not entirely wholesome and paranoia sets in. But why exactly would Gordo have anything against the couple?
The Gift doesn’t really stand out as a particularly intriguing or exciting sounding film, »

Blumhouse Productions have crafted a thriving horror fiefdom for themselves over the last half-decade, with nearly 20 films released since 2009’s Paranormal Activity. When not pitching in on the occasional bit of awards fare like Whiplash and The Normal Heart, Blumhouse can be counted on for the same sort of entertainment Hammer Films provided half a century ago: modest to micro-budgeted fright flicks dished out by the barrelful, where one hit can offset a dozen misses. The studio’s latest, The Gift, toys with this reputation in some unexpected ways, and ends up being as enhanced by the Blumhouse style as it is hindered.
Between The Lazarus Effect, Insidious: Chapter 3, Creep, and The Gallows, Paranormal Activity’s popular trappings (supernatural spookery captured via affordable found footage) have been thoroughly reworked by Blumhouse this year alone. Of the company’s 2015 offerings, The Gift is more in the neighborhood of a suburban »

While a previous trailer offered a glimpse of Bulger’s domestic life, the latest clip is strictly business. In it, Depp wields a lot of firepower and also wheels and deals with Joel Edgerton’s and Benedict Cumberbatch’s characters, underscored by Yelawolf’s pulsing single “Till It’s Gone.”
“We’re just getting started,” Depp says in the clip, referring to Bulger’s notorious gangster activity in Boston from the 1970s to the ’90s. Kevin Bacon, Dakota Johnson and Corey Stoll also star in the Warner Bros. release.
The gangster pic will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival.
“Black Mass” bows in theaters Sept. 18.

In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster Jimmy Bulger (Depp) to collaborate with the FBI in order to eliminate their common enemy: the Italian mob. The drama tells the story of this unholy alliance, which spiraled out of control, allowing Whitey to evade law enforcement while consolidating his power and becoming one of the most ruthless and dangerous gangsters in Boston history.
The film also features Rory Cochrane as Steve Flemmi, Whitey’s closest partner in crime; Jesse Plemons as Whitey’s main henchman, Kevin Weeks; W Earl Brown as Bulger hit man Johnny Martorano; David Harbour as FBI Agent John Morris, who is complicit in the deal between Bulger and Connolly; Dakota Johnson as Lindsey Cyr, Whitey’s former girlfriend and mother of his only child; Julianne Nicholson as John Connolly’s wife, »

A lot has been made of Johnny Depp’s astonishing transformation to play notorious gangster James ‘Whitey’ Bulger for Black mass, and rightly so, but the rest of the cast should not be forgotten, especially when Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon, Juno Temple, and Corey Stoll are offering no doubt stellar support. A new trailer has come our way, which really opens up the story, and gives the supporting players a chance to shine, which is not an easy task with Depp in fantastic, absolutely terrifying form in the lead role. Released: 18th September (U.S.)/ 13th November (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.

Johnny Depp has gone through many dramatic transformations for movies, and his latest role is no exception. He's playing the legendary gangster Whitey Bulger in Black Mass, and new pictures from the film, due out of Sept. 18, show off his makeover. We already got a peek at Depp on the set and in action in the movie's trailer, but now you can study him and his costars, Benedict Cumberbatch and Joel Edgerton, up close. There's something terribly disconcerting about those blue contact lenses, right? »
Johnny Depp is virtually unrecognizable as notorious gangster Whitey Bulger in the latest trailer for Black Mass. We’ve had some earlier looks at the film which boasts a stacked cast of actors including Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon, Peter Sarsgaard, Dakota Johnson, Juno Temple, Joel Edgerton, Corey Stoll, and Adam Scott.
Already slated to play at Tiff, Black Mass brings us the true story of Bulger, the infamously violent gangster brother of a state senator (played by Cumberbatch) who eventually became an FBI informant to take down a Mafia family from invading his South Boston home turf.
The brand new trailer ups the pacing thanks to the catchy track “Till It’s Gone” by Yelawolf, revealing some new scenes for the first time, including a look at Benedict Cumberbatch’s dancing skills. The latest trailer focuses more on the film’s plot with Bulger’s central role as a mythic »

The third trailer for Johnny Depp‘s “Black Mass” shows that James “Whitey” Bulger is practically involved in every crime in the United States. 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. The trailer, set to Yelawolf’s “Till It’s Gone,” shows how dangerous Bulger really is while showcasing the amazing cast’s lineup. In addition to Depp, the film stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Dakota Johnson, Peter Sarsgaard and Kevin Bacon. Scott Cooper directs. It is set to hit theaters »

Fans of Johnny Depp have had it rough for the past couple of years. The most we’ve seen the actor in is pirate garb or something else equally ridiculous. In “Black Mass,” Depp’s still in a costume, but this time, in “Black Mass,” he in a much more dramatic (and scary role) – as James “Whitey” Bulger, the notorious mobster. “Black Mass,” directed Scott Cooper, tells the story of an FBI agent (played by Joel Edgerton) who wants Whitey Bulger to help him take down the Italian mob. However, the alliance gets quickly out of hand. “In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster James [ Read More ]
Are you ready to be terrified like never before this fall? Black Mass has Johnny Depp slipping into the role of real-life gangster James 'Whitey' Bulger, and it could be the moment that defines his career. A third trailer has arrived, which showcases the actor's immense talent. And it's clear that, as of this moment, he is the one to beat at this year's Oscars.
Black Mass arrives from Warner Bros. Pictures this September, just as the awards season starts to really heat up. Scott Cooper, known for his acclaimed dramas Crazy Heart and Out of the Furnace, returns to direct. And he has assembled an excellent supporting cast to back-up his leading man, Johnny Depp. Appearing in the movie are Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon, Corey Stoll, Dakota Johnson, Peter Sarsgaard, Juno Temple, Jesse Plemons and Adam Scott.
Johnny Depp is coming for you haters. Sure, you mocked him for a string of bombs over the past few years including "Lone Ranger," "Transcendence" and "Mortdecai," but now word is spreading that he delivers the performance of a lifetime as mobster Whitey Bulger in the new drama "Black Mass." Warner Bros. released a new trailer for the Scott Cooper directed flick today and, well, Johnny's coming for you. Of course, this is all highly speculative. I mean, Depp is usually the most wonderful, affable and humble superstars you'll ever meet in person. But, does it look like he's letting a little bit of his frustrations out playing Bulger? Would you blame him if he was? Ponder these thoughts as you check out the new preview embedded at the top of this post.

Depp underwent a physical transformation to play the balding crime boss Whitey Bulger, who ruled over the Boston Mob with an iron grip.
Whitey Bulger was at the centre of corruption as an FBI informant for more than 30 years, while taking out any opposition to his Winter Hill Gang.
Black Mass opens on September 18 in the Us and November 13 in the UK. »
Johnny Depp is taking the role of notorious real-life criminal Whitey Bulger in the crime drama Black Mass, and in the trailer, he's terrifying, great, and so going for gold. Yes, this already looks like an award season contender! Depp goes from friendly to monstrously threatening in seconds flat (the hairline, contacts, and accent all add to it too). The movie also boasts an incredible roster of stars besides Depp, like Benedict Cumberbatch, Adam Scott, Dakota Johnson, Kevin Bacon, Corey Stoll, and Joel Edgerton, so there are many reasons you'll want to see this movie. Black Mass comes out on Sept. 18, and you can check out all the pictures now. Public service announcement: the music in the trailer is "Till It's Gone" by Yelawolf. Here's the first trailer: »
"Jimmy's business is Jimmy's business..." Warner Bros has debuted one more official theatrical trailer for Scott Cooper's Black Mass drama, starring Johnny Depp as the notorious gangster Whitey Bulger. We've seen plenty of trailers for this already, so we all should know what to expect at this point, but they keep revealing more and more. This time there's a focus on Depp as Bulger, and lots of the action around his character, and he looks so damn good. And crazy. The big cast includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Corey Stoll, Juno Temple, Dakota Johnson, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon and Adam Scott. I actually really dig the pacing and the intensity of this trailer, thanks to the song "Till It's Gone" by Yelawolf. Enjoy! Here's the second full trailer for Scott Cooper's Black Mass, direct from Warner Bros: Black Mass is directed by Scott Cooper (Out of the Furnace, Crazy Heart »

When Scott Cooper’s Black Mass was announced, many criticized the mobster drama for seemingly glorifying the reign of terror that James “Whitey” Bulger carried out across the city of Boston for years even while working as an FBI informant to take down the Italian mob. And, unfortunately, the first full trailer for the pic likely won’t do much to set their minds at ease.
Though Johnny Depp’s transformative portrayal of the gangster certainly paints him as an unsavory, sadistic character, the preview makes the mistake of soundtracking the gangster’s apparent invincibility and penchant for brutality with Yelawolf’s “Till It’s Gone,” a pulse-pounding track that romanticizes the dangerous nature of his criminal lifestyle.
Still, though Black Mass isn’t looking like the most sensitive treatment of Bulger’s story, especially given that the families of many of his victims still grieve and suffer today as »

The teaser trailer shook you up, and now the full-length trailer for Black Mass - the story of notorious Boston gangster Whitey Bulger, as played by Johnny Depp - has landed, and we insist you watch it. And once you have, be sure to watch our trailer breakdown with director Scott Cooper here for lots of insight on exactly what it is we're watching, and how it fits in with the fascinating true story...With Out Of The Furnace’s 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 to smooth things – but when the Bureau began making arrests, agents double-crossed Bulger and prosecuted him. Bulger fled in 1994, was captured in 2011 in California and has since »
