Watch: Intense clip from Scott Cooper’s Black Mass, out today

Warner Bros. has very kindly sent us over this intense clip from Scott Cooper’s new gangster drama Black Mass, based on the 2001 book Black Mass: The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob by Dick Lehr and Gerard O’Neill.

The film is based on the true story of Whitey Bulger, the brother of a state senator and the most infamous violent criminal in the history of South Boston, who became an FBI informant to take down a Mafia family invading his turf.

Johnny Depp stars as Bulger, with support from an all-star cast that features Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon, Jesse Plemons, Peter Sarsgaard, Rory Cochrane, Adam Scott, Dakota Johnson, and Corey Stoll.

Black Mass had its world premiere at the 72nd Venice International Film Festival, and opens here today, November 25th.
