TRAILER: Johnny Depp Channels Joe Pesci in ‘Black Mass’ Trailer

The chilling trailer for Johnny Depp’s Black Mass has dropped and in it he plays a cat and mouse game over a card table that echoes Joe Pesci’s “Am I here to amuse you?” clip from his Oscar-winning role in Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas. He could be in the hunt this year for another Best Actor nomination, anything to rinse out the bad taste of Mortdecai earlier this year would be a good thing. In the film, Depp stars as James “Whitey” Bulger, the infamous Irish gangster that the FBI convinced to rat on the Italian mob in the 1970s. But the tables are turned when Bulger’s access gives him more power than he had before. The film also stars Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon, Dakota Johnson, Jesse Plemons, Corey Stoll, Rory Cochrane, Sienna Miller, and Adam Scott. Check out the trailer below.

Black Mass opens on September 18th.

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
