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

5 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

8 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 »

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, »

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. »

Fifty Shades Of Grey – The Blu Review

11 May 2015 8:27 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“You want hearts and flowers? That’s not something I know.”

In Michael Haffner’s 2-of-5-Star review of Fifty Shades Of Grey here at We Are Movie Geeks, he wrote “….with all the script and story issues and its misrepresentation of cultural aspects within a sexual community, Fifty Shades is still the most sex we’ve seen from a major studio film at the multiplex in quite some time. That’s not a bad thing. It’s a dumb escapist sex fantasy…… Let the fans of the books enjoy their fantasies, and maybe if this Grey phenomenon continues to grow something better or at least more memorable might come along.” (read all of Michael’s review Here)

I thought Michael was generous. I found Fifty Shades to be a bondage movie with little perversion, a love story with little passion, and because of the nature and reception of the book, »

Whether you found “Fifty Shades of Grey” arousing or not, you’re sure to find its latest incarnation starring Bob Saget as sexy as hair on soap. In a new version of the film’s official trailer, the “Full House” father figure voices both Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson‘s roles, as the chaste Anastasia Steel is coaxed into corporate titan Christian Grey’s freaky-deaky world. You haven’t lived until you’ve heard Saget seductively recite lines like “My tastes are very singular,” before embarking on a series of halfhearted moans, grunts and groans of what one can only assume is ecstasy? »
