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, »

Watch: Double the Tom Hardy in Trailer for Gangster Drama 'Legend'

30 April 2015 6:29 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Me and my brother, we're gonna rule London." Hot on the heels of the intense trailer for the crime drama Black Mass starring Johnny Depp, it looks like Tom Hardy has a great crime thriller of his own on the way too. Legend sees the star of Inception and Mad Max: Fury Road pulling double duty as twin brothers Reggie and Ron Kray, two of London's most notorious gangsters from the 1960s. It's only a teaser trailer, so it mostly just sets the stage for the story, but there's a good indication that this could be a fantastic crime thriller with a tour de force from Hardy on display. Keep an eye out for Taron Egerton in there too. Watch! Here's the first UK teaser trailer for Brian Helgeland's Legend from Studio Canal UK: Legend is written and directed by Brian Helgeland (A Knight's Tale, Payback, 42). Tom Hardy stars »

Does WB have another awards player with Chilean miners disaster flick 'The 33'?

28 April 2015 3:54 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you don't believe awards season runs 365 days a year look no further than the news today that Alcon Entertainment has acquired the U.S. rights to "The 33."  Based on the Copiapó mining accident in 2010, the new drama centers on 33 minters who were trapped for 69 days in a collapsed copper-gold mine in Northern Chile.  Their plight captured the attention of the world and, surprise, Hollywood came calling.  Independently financed by Phoenix Pictures and Half Circle, "33" is being distributed in Chile by 20th Century Fox, but not in the U.S. The news Alcon came on board and Warner Bros. will distribute makes this a somewhat unusual story. Alcon announced that WB will release "The 33" on Nov. 13 which is smack dab in the middle of Oscar season.  Warner Bros. marketing and publicity teams have three other films that are expected to be awards players; Scott Cooper's "Black Mass," Jeff Nichols »

Robert Wittman’s Art Crime Project ‘Priceless’ in the Works at Cross Creek

27 April 2015 5:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cross Creek Pictures has optioned the movie rights to Robert Wittman’s 2010 memoir “Priceless: How I Went Undercover to Rescue the World’s Stolen Treasures.”

Wittman joined the FBI in 1988 and gained a reputation within the bureau for solving art theft cases, helping to locate paintings by Norman Rockwell, Pablo Picasso, Rembrandt, Camille Pissarro and Claude Monet. He helped form the FBI’s Art Crime Team in 2005, the first of its type.

The memoir includes recoveries of the golden armor of an ancient Peruvian warrior king, the Rodin sculpture that inspired the Impressionist movement, the war bonnet that Geronimo wore at his final pow-wow, the original copy of the Bill of Rights and the  Civil War flag carried into battle by one of the nation’s first African-American regiments.

Cross Creek is in post-production on Leonardo DiCaprio’s gangster drama “Black Mass,” Jake Gyllenhaal’s action-adventure “Everest,” British gangster »

27 April 2015 3:15 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Kevin Polowy profiles the upcoming gangster film "Black Mass," saying this is finally "the Johnny Depp movie we've been waiting for." A new trailer shows Depp as real-life ruthless mobster Whitey Bulger, one of the most infamous people ever in American organized crime. Could this be Depp's ticket to a first Oscar win? 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. Yahoo Movies -Break- With no big film wanting to open a week before "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the box office leader is once again "Furious 7" with another $18.26 million. Holdover "Paul Blart - Mall Cop 2" is in second place with $15.5 million. Newcomer &quo »

Johnny Depp is Frightening in Black Mass Trailer

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.

Top 5: CinemaCon 2015, Fantastic Four Trailer, Spider-Man Shortlist, Black Mass, Amy Schumer Obliterates Rape Culture

25 April 2015 5:13 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Currently streaming on Netflix is director Tony Shaff's fascinating documentary Hotline. The film premiered last year at Canada's Hot Docs festival and focuses on a slew of American telephone hotlines for suicide prevention, psychic readings (starring Miss Cleo!), phone sex, and more. Its tagline states that "It's ok to talk to strangers" and while that's probably not the best advice to give the children in your life, within the context of the doc it's entirely appropriate. The idea of learning more about the hotline industry and the people on both ends of the phone is intriguing in its own right, but Hotline really found its footing with me through its exploration of telephone technology as a means of fostering meaningful, often times cathartic, human interaction amongst two anonymous parties. The doc puts an emphasis on the unique value of being able to verbalize our deepest fears, concerns, insecurities, etc. »

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, »

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...

Chris Pratt, 'Crimson Peak' and 8 other takeaways from Universal's CinemaCon sneaks

23 April 2015 7:02 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Las Vegas - It's been a fantastic 2015 so far for Universal Pictures.  "Fifty Shades of Grey" has earned $568 million worldwide and "Furious 7" has taken in $300 million domestic and $1.15 billion globally.  Universal was the last studio to present their slate to the world's theater owners and, as you can guess, they were pretty bullish on what's to come. Unlike some of their competitors, however, Universal joined Sony Pictures 20th Century Fox by actually making some news during their presentation.  The next "Fifty Shades" movies have titles and release dates and Vin Diesel himself appeared on hand to announce "Furious 8's" April 14, 2017 opening day. Other talent on hand included Seth MacFarlane ("Ted 2"), Amy Schumer ("Trainwreck"), Chris Pratt ("Jurassic World") and Dr. Dre and Ice Cube ("Straight Outta Compton").   Here are some quick takeaways from Universal's upcoming slate. "Everest" looks, um, epic Slight hint to Warner Bros. You might want to move "Black Mass"* off Sept. »
