'Black Mass' Trailer: This Is the Johnny Depp Everyone Has Been Waiting to See Again

'Black Mass' Trailer: This Is the Johnny Depp Everyone Has Been Waiting to See Again

Apr 23, 2015

Johnny Depp is a tremendous actor. No one is going to argue that point. And yet we can also all agree that people don't get as excited for his movies as they once did. After a string of oddballs like Alice in Wonderland, Dark Shadows, The Lone Ranger, Transcendence, and Mortdecai, it's understandable that many fans aren't so quick to fall for yet another movie where Depp plays a cooky weirdo with a strange wardrobe.

Black Mass, however, looks like it will realign everyone's expectations for Depp movies back to the likes of Blow, Donnie Brasco, and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Directed by Scott Cooper (Into the Furnace), Black Mass tells the true story of notorious Boston criminal Whitey Bulger, and as you can see from the intense first trailer for the movie, Depp may once again be hiding under a face full of make-up, but this is not some family friendly quirky role. This is going to be a harsh, intimidating, bold material and Depp is taking it on handidly.

As is the rest of the cast, which may be one of the best ensembles of 2015: Kevin Bacon, Joel Edgerton, Dakota Johnson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Juno Temple, Adam Scott, Jesse Plemons, Peter Sarsgaard, Corey Stoll, and Rory Cochrane.

Black Mass hits theaters on September 18, 2015.
