Johnny Depp Transforms into Whitey Bulger in 'Black Mass' Trailer

Black Mass finally gets the full trailer, and while it does look cool, part of me can't help but wonder if this is one of those movies that exists solely as a reason to show off Depp's performance and land him an Oscar nod. I'm sort of getting shades of The Iron Lady here, but I could be wrong. The rest of the cast is pretty great, and the movie is slated to screen at Venice and probably Telluride and Toronto to get a jump on awards season. It's coming out September 18th though, so you won't have to wait long to see it (my own feeling is that if they were truly confident in the film as a whole it would probably be coming out in October or November).
