New Second Trailer Hits for ‘Black Mass’ with Johnny Depp


whitey-1Based just on the previous Teaser that hit the web for Scott Cooper‘s upcoming gangster film Black Mass, some have moved Johnny Depp into their Oscar predictions, with a few even positing that he could win the Academy Award for Best Actor this time around. Certainly, playing Whitey Bulger is a baity role and that Teaser showed him off actually putting in an effort, but we definitely needed to see more to have a feel for things. Well, a new Trailer has dropped, one that shows a bit more of the cast besides Depp, though at the expense of some of my excitement. To be fair, this still looks very good and Depp could wind up in play, but I wouldn’t necessary lock him in for a nomination now. We’ll see what happens, but Cooper’s movie has a great cast in addition to Depp, including Kevin Bacon, Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, David Harbour, Dakota Johnson, Julianne Nicholson, Jesse Plemons, Adam Scott, Corey Stoll, Juno Temple, and more. Take a look below and stay tuned for a ton more on Black Mass. It hits theaters on September 18th, so if it’s good, you know it’ll be in the thick of the awards race…

Here’s the Trailer:

    The Teaser was better, though this is certainly fine in and of itself.

      It’s impossible to say that right now, but he’ll at least be in the conversation for the first time in years.
