Johnny Depp Gives Life Lessions As Whitey Bulger In Black Mass Trailer

Warner Bros has released the first official trailer for Black Mass, the film about gangster James "Whitey" Bulger played by Johnny Depp. The Film also stars Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon and Dakota Johnson.

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.
