‘Black Mass’ Releases Second Trailer Giving Fans Some Humor, Packed With Action [Watch]

Black Mass has released its second trailer and with every moment of its new footage, viewers will be anxious for more prior to the film’s release. The film’s second trailer hints at a bit of humor that will be offered in the film as gangster films have in the past.

This film looks like it will have the look and feel of a classic gangster film much like Scarface or Goodfellas, and it will be refreshing to see for fans of the older style that doesn’t focus simply on explosions and special effects.

It stars Johnny Depp in an excellent casting choice that could help to revive the miserable time at the box office his past few films have had. Depp plays the real-life gangster Whitey Bulger, who according to the trailer with dramatic emphasis, was “The. Most. Feared. The. Most. Wanted. The. Most. Notorious. Gangster in U.S. History.”

Black Mass’ debut trailer was released about a month ago and following the initial trailer, it already looked as if this could be one of the best roles of Johnny Depp’s career. The makeup job that was done for the character is quite impressive and could remind people of the recent role for Steve Carrell in Foxcatcher as Depp looks almost unrecognizable.

Throughout the latest trailer, Depp’s Bulger is seen giving speeches, killing people, and even charming a couple people, including an older woman who says that it is nice to have him back in the neighborhood.

He shares a clever piece of gangster advice for his son at the beginning of the trailer, saying “It’s not what you do, it’s when and where you do it, and who you do it to or with. If nobody sees it, it didn’t happen.” However, his son is only 6, which makes his wife question the appropriateness of the comment.

In addition to Depp, the film boasts an all-star cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Dakota Johnson, Peter Sarsgaard, and Corey Stoll.

Black Mass will be released in theaters on September 18th and is likely to get audiences overly excited for it in order to hopefully redeem Johnny Depp for his past couple of flops. This film could even gain him some Oscar attention and it would not be surprising to see him get a best actor nomination.
