The New Black Mass Trailer Offers an Extra Helping of Johnny Depp’s Creepy Whitey Bulger

The first trailer for Whitey Bulger drama Black Mass centered around one tense dinner scene, but in the new full-length trailer, Johnny Depp finds lots of new ways to be creepy. There’s creepy swaggering down the street! A creepy military salute! Creepy stomach crunches! Directed by Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) the movie follows the true story of the infamous Boston gangster (Depp) as he does the usual gangster stuff: Threatening people, killing people, and maintaining complicated relationships with the FBI.

The trailer also gives us a better look at the performances from the rest of the cast: Benedict Cumberbatch plays Bulger’s smiling brother—and senator—Bill Bulger, and then there’s Corey Stoll, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon, Dakota Johnson, and an almost unrecognizable Jesse Plemons, aka Todd from Breaking Bad. We’ll see if this movie can rescue Johnny Depp’s languishing reputation when it hits theaters Sept. 18.
