Second ‘Black Mass’ Trailer Shows The Dark Side Of Whitey Bulger

Black Mass Movie

The teaser trailer for Black Mass we all saw back in April was a good way to introduce Johnny Depp’s take on notorious crime boss James ‘Whitey’ Bulger without giving away an ounce of plot. The second trailer, released this weekend, shows just a bit more without giving away the whole shebang.

I never really thought of Rick Ross when reading about the dark and depraved crimes carried out by Whitey Bulger as he held the city of Boston in the palm of his hand, but the latest trailer for Black Mass may have me seeing things differently. Backed by the Jay Z-assisted track “The Devil Is A Lie,” our second look at Depp’s turn as Bulger is filled with violent imagery, smart-ass one-liners, and a general sense of ‘this is going to be make being a vicious gangster look cool.’ You can view the footage below.

Black Mass won’t be out until the end of summer, but it would be nice to see a bit more of the plot before that time comes. There are several frames in this trailer that seem to depict infamous crimes carried out by Whitey, but without any real sense of time it’s hard to know just what we’re seeing at any given time. That said, Depp looks to be giving his all to the role, and that alone gives me a good reason to see the film when it arrives in theaters September 18.
