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, »

Directed by Scott Cooper (who helped Jeff Bridges win an Academy Award for "Crazy Heart"), the film also stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon, Adam Scott, Jesse Plemons, Peter Sarsgaard, and Dakota Johnson. It opens nationally September 18 and is a likely candidate to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival the week before.

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 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 Is Gangster Turned Informant Whitey Bulger

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, »

Johnny Depp transforms into bald gangster Whitey Bulger in Black Mass trailer

23 April 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Johnny Depp has undergone a jaw-dropping transformation for his latest movie Black Mass.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star dons a bald cap to play notorious Boston gangster Whitey Bulger in Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper's crime drama.

The brand new trailer showcases Depp's dramatic look, and gives a taste of what to expect from the hotly-anticipated film.

Depp's supporting cast is an impressive one, with Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon, Juno Temple and Dakota Johnson all on board.

Bulger pulled the strings for a violent criminal gang in Boston while simultaneously serving as an FBI informant. He went on the run in the mid-'90s after his former handler tipped him off about a pending indictment.

He was arrested in 2011, aged 81, and eventually sentenced to two consecutive life terms plus five years for crimes including 19 counts of murder, racketeering, narcotics distribution and extortion.

Black Mass will open in cinemas this September. »

Johnny Depp Gets Deadly Serious in Black Mass [Trailer]

23 April 2015 11:23 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

You may already be familiar with gangster Whitey Bulger and if not, here's the run-down: Bulger was number 2 on America's Most Wanted list (right after Osama Bin Laden). He was a mob hitman who Boston for years and he wasn't even quiet about it. The police knew he was a mobster, he was responsible for the deaths of over a dozen victims and no one in law enforcement batted an eyeball.

Bulger did eventually get caught but his story is more colourful than a Scorsese gangster flick and it was only a matter of time before someone took it to the big screen and Black Mass is the first attempt.

Adapted from Gerard O'Neill's book, the movie is directed by Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper and stars Johnny Depp as Bulger in what appears to be, by far, the most interesting ro [Continued ...] »

23 April 2015 10:56 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"'Just sayin'' could get you buried real quick." Yesterday brought our first look at a balding Johnny Depp as he takes on the role of real life crime boss Whitey Bulger in the new crime drama Black Mass from Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper. And today brings the first intense trailer for the film that looks like it actually features an interesting performance from Depp. Somehow, the actor looks more creepy balding and with blue eyes than he has as any of his other cooky characters. The trailer prominently features a tense dinner scene, and it gives off a vibe that this performance from Depp could be an awards contender. Watch! Here's the first trailer for Scott Cooper's Black Mass, originally from Apple: You can still see the first look photo from Black Mass right here.

Black Mass Trailer: Johnny Depp Returns to the Gangster Drama

23 April 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. has released the first 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. I'm not sure what to make of this trailer since Depp looks like he's giving an incredible performance, and I haven't seen him to do that in a while.  Yes, there's some make up, but it's not like Depp is letting it do the heavy lifting.  The power comes through his voice and intonation, and the movie looks sinister and intense as a result. Check out the Black Mass trailer below.  The film opens September 18th, and also stars  Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Dakota Johnson, Juno Temple, and Jesse Plemons.

This 'Black Mass' trailer sets the stage for Johnny Depp's return to form

23 April 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

So far actor-turned-filmmaker Scott Cooper has directed Jeff Bridges to his first Oscar (2009's "Crazy Heart") and arguably shepherded Christian Bale to his finest performance to date (2013's "Out of the Furnace"). With the upcoming "Black Mass," depicting the life and times of Boston crime boss Whitey Bulger, it looks like he's dragged Johnny Depp from the funk of franchise dreck to what could be one of the most towering performances of the actor's career. At least, that's the vibe I'm getting from a tightly assembled trailer for the film, which uses just one scene to showcase the vibe and presence Depp is putting out there as Bulger. As soon as the frame opens on those blue contacts…wow. I'm pretty excited for the look of this thing, too, as cinematographer Masanobu Takayanagi killed it on "Furnace" and is one of the best in the game right now. This one »

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we now have our first look at Johnny Depp as the infamous Boston crime boss Whitey Bulger in the upcoming "Black Mass" film. Check it out below. Plot: The true story of Whitey Bulger (Depp), the brother of a state senator and the most infamous violent criminal in the history of South Boston, who became an FBI informant to take down a Mafia family invading his turf. "He could be charming. He could be ruthless. He was like a cobra . you never knew where he could strike," said director Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart). "A lot of people on set knew Whitey intimately. They got chills at [Depp's] resemblance. Some of them couldn't even look at him. It's easy to be the mustache twirling villain but this performance couldn't be further from that. He is truly gifted."

First Look At Johnny Depp As Gangster Whitey Bulger In Black Mass

22 April 2015 1:51 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With Crazy Heart's Scott Cooper at the helm, Black Mass tell the true life story of Whitey Bulger, the infamous South Boston crime boss, and brother of  a state senatorwho turned FBI informant to take down a Mafia family invading his turf, and is currently imprisoned with two life sentences. Johnny Depp is taking on the role of Bulger, and Entertainment Weekly have our first look at the movie, with Depp in character as the violent criminal. This role seems to be a million miles away from the quirky characters (or just one quirky character depending on who you ask) Depp has committed to the big screen in the last few years, and I'm excited to see him tackle a meatier role, hopefully one that will deliver a performance close to the Johnny Depp of old. But this isn't just Depp's show, with Coper assembling a fantastic cast including Benedict Cumberbatch, »

Black Mass: Johnny Depp Is Whitey Bulger in First Picture from New Drama

22 April 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Johnny Depp has undergone yet another physical transformation for an upcoming role, but this time it’s not in the interest of laughs or big budget tentpoles—he’s going straight drama. Black Mass tells the story of the unendingly fascinating crime boss Whitey Bulger, who simultaneously served as an FBI informant and enacted horrific crimes across the Boston area for decades, before he was finally arrested in 2011. Depp plays Bulger in the upcoming drama from Crazy Heart and Out of the Furnace writer/director Scott Cooper, and as we can see in this first image, he’s physically gone all-in for the role.

Some of them couldn’t look at him.” Response to the first footage from the film at CinemaCon yesterday was highly positive »
