Trailer Spotlight: Black Mass

black mass2

There are few things that can make the hair on the back of you neck stand up. When you first hear a truly amazing song, when you hear an inspirational speech, and for us here at Bro Knows when we watch a truly spectacular trailer. A little while back we commented on the news and images of the upcoming Black Mass. Then shortly there after the first trailer dropped for the film and we commented on that. All of our commentary was positive. Seeing Johnny Depp step back into dramatic role in the form of this notorious mobster was the most refreshing thing possible. With hopes that this will revitalize his career and start the spiral away from the goofy glammed up caricatures that Depp has pigeon holed himself into, Black Mass seemed like the perfect vehicle for just that. Well Bro Nation, the theatrical trailer for Black mass just dropped and OH. MY. GOD!

Here’s the trailer!

Here’s the synopsis!

John Connolly and James “Whitey” Bulger grew up together on the streets of South Boston. Decades later, in the late 1970s, they would meet again. By then, Connolly was a major figure in the FBI’s Boston office and Whitey had become godfather of the Irish Mob. What happened between them – a dirty deal to trade secrets and take down Boston’s Italian Mafia in the process – would spiral out of control, leading to murders, drug dealing, racketeering indictments, and, ultimately, to Bulger making the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List.

Good lord! This is easily the best trailer of the year hands down end of story. For those that think were crazy because of Star Wars and Batman v Superman, we get it, but come on! This has the feeling of a Goodfellas, mixed with The Departed, and a small amount of The Godfather mixed in for good measure. This is simply a masterful trailer. The movie looks incredible, and if were going off of the trailer, it’s going to be the best movie of the year. It would be so amazing to see Depp get a nomination for his role as Whitey Bulger, and only time will tell if that’s a possibility. One thing is certain, this trailer made the hairs on the backs of our necks stand at full attention!

What did you guys out in Bro Nation think of the new trailer? You excited for the movie? How do you think Depp will do as Bulger? Drop a comment and let’s start a discussion!
