Johnny Depp’s been having a little bit of a rough stretch lately, ever since high-profile flops like Mortdecai and The Lone Ranger. But he seems to be roaring back to relevance with his role as real-life gangster Whitey Bulger in Black Mass, an upcoming “action drama” that just had a trailer hit the internet.
The trailer shows a familiar scene to gangster movie fans: Depp as Whitey sharing a dinner with friends that quickly turns tense. But it’s so well-acted that it’s interesting despite its familiarity – which will hopefully be the case with Black Mass as a whole. It certainly has a good enough cast even apart from Depp for this to be the case, including Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon, Dakota Johnson, Adam Scott, and more.
You can watch the new trailer for Black Mass below. The movie is set to hit theaters on September 18th, and for more from the Comic Book Resources YouTube channel, just click here.
