Johnny Depp remembers acting in Black Mass trailer

Johnny Depp looks really sinister in his new role as notorious gangster Whitey Bulger in a new film from director Scott Cooper

Johnny Depp is now best known for his part in the Pirates movies as the doddery Captain Jack Sparrow but once upon a time he was better known as a truly great actor in a slew of independent movies. He may be too big to go indie again these days but it does seem like he's getting his acting back on in the first trailer for Black Mass.It's the story of American criminal Whitey Bulger who was charged with the murder of 19 people and decided he wanted to work with the FBI to commute his sentence. His story sounds absolutely insane on paper, so of course its based on true events. Here's the first trailer. Check out those baby blues...

Black Mass is in cinemas in September 2015.
