Johnny Depp Looks Terrifyingly Brilliant in First Trailer for ‘Black Mass’ by Scott Cooper


screen-shot-2015-04-23-at-1-27-50-pmAlmost out of nowhere, Black Mass has gone and shot up to the upper echelons of the 2015 awards season titles that I’m looking forward to. The reason? Well, the Trailer that recently dropped for it, of course. First of all, Johnny Depp looks absolutely fantastic as Whitey Bulger, the notorious gangster who cinema has seemingly been obsessed with in the last decade or so. Without question, he seems like he’ll be in contention for a Best Actor nomination here. Scott Cooper‘s film has a top tier cast too, in addition to Depp. A small sampling includes Kevin Bacon, Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, David Harbour, Dakota Johnson, Peter Sarsgaard, Adam Scott, Corey Stoll, and Juno Temple. That’s a hell of a cast for this crime drama, and while not all of them are given too much to do in this Trailer, Depp is put front and center. He looks so good, I’m actually quite eager for September 18th to arrive now. That’s when we’ll see this one, though take a look below to get your first glimpse at the film. Stay tuned for more on Black Mass in the next few months. It could very well be an Oscar player by the end of the year…

Here’s the Trailer:
