Johnny Depp offers some fatherly advice in the second trailer for "Black Mass," which shows two sides of gangster James "Whitey" Bulger: well-intentioned family man/beloved neighborhood fixture, and ruthless criminal.
"It's not what you do, it's when and where you do it, and who you do it to or with," he tells his 6-year-old son. "If nobody sees it, it didn't happen."
Based on the 2001 book “Black Mass: The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob,” the film tells the true story of how Whitey Bulger, the brother of a Massachusetts state senator and the most infamous notorious criminal in South Boston, became an FBI informant to take down the Italian mob that was invading his territory.
Directed by Scott Cooper (“Crazy Heart, “Out of the Furnace”), “Black Mass” also stars Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon, Dakota Johnson, Jesse Plemons, Corey Stoll, Rory Cochrane, Sienna Miller and Adam Scott. The film opens Sept. 18.
