By Staff  |  08/28/2015

With Black Mass hitting theaters in less than a month, Warner Bros. Pictures offers up a closer look at the upcoming film, which stars Johnny Depp as the notorious Boston crime boss Whitey Bulger.

In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) persuades Bulger to collaborate with the FBI and eliminate a common enemy: the Italian mob. Thanks to the alliance, it allowed Whitey to evade law enforcement, consolidate power, and become one of the most ruthless and powerful gangsters in Boston history.

Black Mass hits theaters September 18.
