A behind-the-scenes look at Johnny Depp’s transformation into Boston’s most notorious gangster, including interviews with Johnny’s co-stars including Benedict Cumberbatch and Joel Edgerton, and director Scott Cooper.
In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster Jimmy Bulger (Depp) to collaborate with the FBI in order to eliminate their common enemy: the Italian mob. The drama tells the story of this unholy alliance, which spiraled out of control, allowing Whitey to evade law enforcement while consolidating his power and becoming one of the most ruthless and dangerous gangsters in Boston history.
Below is the first trailer for the upcoming film, Black Mass. The film tells the real life tale of Whitey Bulger, an Irish-American mobster who worked with the FBI to bring down the Italian mafia in Boston, while cementing his place as one of the most notorious gangsters in the city’s history.
It stars Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Sienna Miller, Dakota Johnson, and Kevin Bacon.
Eagle eyed tweeter, @TheDoctorsJawn has spotted “the little something” Steven Moffat has often said is in the infamous scene from The Reichenbach Fall. If you look closely, you can clearly see the man pull out a bag of blood from inside his jacket pocket.
If you remember, just before his roof top confrontation with Moriarty, Sherlock told Molly he needed her assistance with something. Did she arrange the crowd? The man with the blood?
My personal theory is that Sherlock jumped into the parked, open topped rubbish truck. Then rolled out as it pulled away. The crowd gather to block Watson’s view, as this man covers him in blood.
