Scott Cooper Talks Black Mass, His First Cut, and Future Projects

1 May 2015 1:25 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of my most anticipated films of this year is writer/director Scott Cooper‘s (Crazy Heart, Out of the Furnace) upcoming drama Black Mass.  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. As you can see in the awesome looking trailer, Depp looks fantastic in the role and with a supporting cast made up of  Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Dakota Johnson, Juno Temple, and Jesse Plemons, I think we’re in for something special when Black Mass hits theaters September 18th. Last week at CinemaCon I got a few minutes with Scott Cooper before seeing the trailer during the presentation. He talked about the time frame of the movie, how the project came together, his first cut, if Black Mass could premiere at the Toronto Film Festival or Telluride, »

2015 Summer Movie Preview: 20 Most Anticipated Movies

29 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The May 1 release of Avengers: Age of Ultron marks the "official" start of the 2015 Summer Movie Season and with that in mind, it's only appropriate to offer up a look forward at what's ahead over the next four months. What is ahead over the next four monthsc Well, a lot of movies that cost a lot of money with a few smaller features mixed in for good measure, and as much as some of us may lament the fact studios have become so franchise focused, it's hard not to admit a desire to see some of these bigger features. As a means of whittling down the flock of films arriving over the next several months I've chosen to take a look at my 20 most anticipated, which does mean there are bound to be some titles I probably ought to mention, but didn't make the list for a variety of reasons. »

26 April 2015 11:28 PM, PDT | CineMovie | See recent CineMovie news »

After watching Johnny Depp as modern day mobster Whitey Bulger in the Black Mass new trailer, all is forgiven for Depp once again donning the Captain Sparrow costume for another Pirates of the Caribbean movie. The unrecognizable Depp is alarmingly frightening as the infamous violent criminal in this first look at the crime drama. Black Mass boast an A-list cast such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon, Corey Stoll, Peter Sarsgaard and David Harbour.

Just Sayin’ – Watch The First Trailer For ‘Black Mass’

24 April 2015 1:52 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Johnny Depp really needs a hit. After the failings of Transcendence and the more recent Mortdecai, the world’s number one actor (Tm) has a couple of potentials coming up, including a return to the role of Captain Jack Sparrow in the fifth Pirates Of The Carribean movie, and a possible awards contender in Black Mass, for which a first trailer has just hit the web.

The trailer has a very big Goodfellas vibe to it, not just because of the gangster speak, but for the uncomfortable ‘funny how’ speech that greets us as the trailer starts up. Depp looks absolutely amazing in this.

Here’s the plot.

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.  Black Mass tells the true story of this unholy alliance, which spiraled out of control, »

Black Mass: first trailer for Johnny Depp crime drama

23 April 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Johnny Depp and Benedict Cumberbatch star in the upcoming Black Mass. Here's the first trailer...

Telling the story of 'one of the most notorious gangsters in U.S. history', Black Mass will be bringing the tale of Whitey Bulger to cinemas later this year.

Bulger was an Irish mobster who collaborated with the FBI in the 1970s, with the aim of taking down the Italian mob. The film will chart just what happened, and how things, er, didn't quite go to plan.

Johnny Depp takes on the role of Whitey in the movie, with Joel Edgerton playing the FBI's John Connolly. Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon, Dakota Johnson, Sienna Miller and Adam Scott are also in the cast, with Crazy Heart's Scott Cooper directing.

The film is scheduled for release in cinemas this coming September. And here's the first trailer for it...

Johnny Depp is Whitey Bulger in Black Mass' first trailer with Benedict Cumberbatch, Adam Scott

23 April 2015 4:05 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

In this September’s Black MassJohnny Depp returns to the life of crime as Whitey Bulger, a character light-years away from Mortdecai’s moustache-twirling eponymous art dealer, or the wacky world of his frequent collaborator Tim Burton.

Bulger is perhaps best known to film audiences as the real-life inspiration behind Jack Nicholson’s Boston mob kingpin in Martin Scorsese’s The Departed. If Jack’s Frank Costello is only the carbon copy of Bulger, then we should be in for a hell of a ride with Black Mass and the real deal.

“He could be charming. He could be ruthless. He was like a cobra—you never knew where he could strike,” says director Scott Cooper of Bulger, a regular on the FBI’s ten most wanted fugitives list.

Bulger isn’t the first notorious crime lord brought to the big screen by Depp. He portrayed the infamous drug trafficker George Jung in Blow, »

The First Trailer For Black Mass Is Intense And Unsettling

23 April 2015 2:31 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

For all those who think Johnny Depp is only good now for recycling his one off the wall, quirky routine, feast your eyes on the first trailer for Black Mass, Scott Cooper's biopic of notoriously violent gangster Whitey Bulger. It could be his eyes are so blue they're off putting. Maybe, it's the way he goes from friendly to calm and menacing in a split second. Or that we haven't him go this far into a role in a very long time. It's probably all three. I genuinely got chills from this trailer, all thanks to Mr. Depp's unnerving portrayal of the infamous Bulger. This is definitely one to watch out for. 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. »

Johnny Depp is gangster Whitey Bulger in trailer for ‘Black Mass’

23 April 2015 2:03 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Whitey Bulger is an American gangster and organized crime figurehead currently locked away in prison since 2011 on 19 murder charges, as well as racketeering, extortion, money laundering and more. And until now, his story has never been told in a movie.

Johnny Depp dons a bald skin cap and a thick, gravely Boston accent to portray Bulger in Scott Cooper’s (Out of the Furnace, Crazy Heart) latest film, Black Mass. At CinemaCon, the audiences there got their first look at Depp, and now a trailer has arrived complete with a chilling, centerpiece scene and acting display around the dinner table. The film takes place in the ’70s when Bulger had become the head of the Irish Mob and eventually became an FBI informant. Here’s the synopsis:

John Connolly and James “Whitey” Bulger grew up together on the streets of South Boston. Decades later, in the late 1970s, they would meet again. »

Black Mass Trailer: Johnny Depp’s Bold, Bald Portrayal of Whitey Bulger

23 April 2015 1:10 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Just when we thought we didn’t like Johnny Depp anymore, here he is doing what appears to be quality work again portraying notorious gangster James “Whitey” Bulger in Black Mass. If he looks and sounds like Jack Nicholson, particularly in Martin Scorsese’s The Departed, that’s partly because that character was partly based on Bulger. He actually sounds more like Nicholson as Frank Costello and Ray Liotta’s aged Henry Hill in Goodfellas than the real Bulger. Unlike Depp’s other portrayal of a balding icon in the Hunter S. Thompson adaptation Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, here he may not be attempting full authenticity but rather one of his hodgepodge characterizations. Either way, that main steak dinner scene at the center of this first trailer is intense, and the extended showcase of Depp’s creepy-eyed performance piques our interest. As does the whole ensemble, which we barely get a look at here. Black Mass »

Johnny Depp Is Terrifyingly Good in the Black Mass Trailer

23 April 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Johnny Depp is taking the role of notorious real-life criminal Whitey Bulger in the crime drama Black Mass, and in the first footage, he's terrifying, great, and so going for gold. Yes, this already looks like an award season contender, based on a scene between Depp and a character played by David Harbour; Depp goes from charming dinner guest 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, so watch the first trailer now. »

Watch Johnny Depp As Gangster Whitey Bulger In First Trailer For Black Mass

23 April 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From its opening shot through to its final fade out, the first trailer for Black Mass preys solely upon the unnerving performance of its leading man. Known for his loyalty to Disney’s Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, Johnny Depp is turning his back on Bruckheimer’s swashbuckling series for a gritty real-life drama he can sink his teeth into. And judging by the message he imparts over this compelling two-minute trailer, it’s probably going to get bloody.

Black Mass hails from writer-director Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart, Out Of The Furnace) and chronicles the tale of legendary Irish gangster Whitey Bulger (Depp), whose preponderance for brutal criminal activity is tabled when his FBI agent brother steps in. Choosing to switch sides, Bulger becomes an informant for the bureau in order to take down a competitive Mafia family.

Depp’s efforts are supplemented by a huge supporting cast that includes Joel Edgerton, »
