The teaser trailer shook you up, and now the full-length trailer for Black Mass - the story of notorious Boston gangster Whitey Bulger, as played by Johnny Depp - has landed, and we insist you watch it. And once you have, be sure to watch our trailer breakdown with director Scott Cooper here for lots of insight on exactly what it is we're watching, and how it fits in with the fascinating true story...

With Out Of The Furnace’s Cooper directing, Black Mass tells the story of Bulger, who masterminded a violent gang in Boston while also reportedly turning federal informant to take down rivals. It seemed to be working out well – particularly with corrupt FBI agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) helping to smooth things – but when the Bureau began making arrests, agents double-crossed Bulger and prosecuted him. Bulger fled in 1994, was captured in 2011 in California and has since been sentenced to two consecutive life terms plus five years for his crimes.

With an ensemble that also includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Juno Temple, Kevin Bacon, Adam Scott, Corey Stoll, Peter Sarsgaard and Julianne Nicholson, Black Mass will be out in the UK on November 13.
