‘Black Mass’ Trailer: Johnny Depp Is Unrecognizable as Whitey Bulger

Johnny's Many Face
Meet Johnny Depp's many costumed movie characters.

The character chameleon that is Johnny Depp has done it again.

The actor is unrecognizable in the freshly released trailer for Black Mass, a crime drama that centers around the hunt for former FBI informant and real-life convicted murderer Whitey Bulger, who was finally caught offscreen at the age of 81 after 16 years in hiding. Covered in prosthetics and old man makeup, Depp plays the much-feared mob boss as he terrorizes those seeking to move into his South Boston turf.

Also starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Dakota Johnson, Kevin Bacon and Adam Scott, the film opens September 18. For now, check out the trailer — above.
