Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Ben Affleck‘s Live By Night. Set in the roaring 20s during the Prohibition era, Affleck plays Joe Coughlin, the son of the Boston Police Superintendent, who has strayed away from his upstanding roots to become a gangster who will make a name for himself, even if that means going against some of the most notorious mobsters and crimelords.
Oddly enough, Bradley Cooper has already played as a down-on-his-luck chef given a second chance at taking his career to the next level. But that was before he was nominated for multiple Academy Awards and voiced a hot-headed gun-toting raccoon. In Burnt, Cooper is Adam Jones, a world-renowned two-star Michelin chef of a Parisian restaurant who had it all. However, his ego got in the way, and he lost it all.
Now he has a second chance to regain the respect he once had, while also finding love and the real meaning of passion for food. Check out the latest trailer for Burnt here below.
The first image of Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger in Scott Cooper‘s (Crazy Heart) Black Mass was unveiled yesterday, and now we are getting a first look at the footage from the film in an all-new trailer.
The film will center on Bulger’s life as a Bostonian gangster while acting as an FBI informant. In the new trailer we see a huge departure from the roles we are accustomed to seeing from Depp in recent years. No more silly pirate play or childish gestures, this is a Depp that needs to be seen more often. Hit the jump to check out the first trailer for Black Mass.
Warner Bros. has revealed our first look at Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger in director Scott Cooper‘s Black Mass. Bulger is the notorious South Boston gangster who spent 16 years at large until he was found hiding in Santa Monica, CA in 2011. He was then convicted of 31 of 32 counts of racketeering, money laundering, extortion, and weapons charges, including his complicity in 19 murders. Jack Nicholson’s character Frank Costello in Martin Scorsese’s The Departed is loosely based on Bulger’s criminal career.
Cooper’s new film will bring the life and crimes of Bulger to the big screen, while also covering his being an FBI informant tasked with providing intel to bring down the Italian Mafia. As you can see, based on the header photo, Depp is playing someone who is the polar opposite of Captain Jack Sparrow or one of those Tim Burton characters. Hit the jump for more.
