Black Mass trailer

If you haven’t been impressed with the work Johnny Depp has been putting out over the past decade, with disappointments like Mortdecai, The Tourist, Dark Shadows, The Lone Ranger, Transcendence, and tired Pirates of the Caribbean sequels, it looks like Black Mass might restore your faith in the actor.

A new trailer for the crime thriller from Crazy Heart and Out of the Furnace director Scott Cooper has just surfaced showing off more of what appears to be an Oscar-worthy performance from Johnny Depp as the infamous Boston gangster Whitey Bulger, who was given free criminal reign thanks to his brother (Benedict Cumberbatch) being situated at the FBI.

After a promotional campaign that got off to an extraordinarily creepy start, The Gift went relatively quiet for the past couple of months. But perhaps it was just been lulling us into a false sense of security, because now the thriller is back with another unsettling trailer.

Joel Edgerton‘s directorial debut stars himself as Gordo, who reconnects with an old classmate named Simon (Jason Bateman). But their reunion isn’t as fortuitous as it seems. Gordo apparently harbors an ancient grudge against Simon, and his reappearance threatens to destroy Simon completely. Rebecca Hall stars as Simon’s wife Robyn. Watch the new The Gift trailer after the jump. Read More »

Black Mass trailer

“If nobody sees it,” Whitey Bulger tells his six-year old son in this new Black Mass trailer, “it didn’t happen.” But much of what we’ll see in this movie did happen, as Bulger, played here by Johnny Depp, was among the most notorious gangsters in Boston’s history — hell, in US history. He topped the FBI’s Most Wanted list for years. Depp may be channeling Jack Nicholson’s performance from The Departed, a performance which was also at least inspired by Bulger, but he still comes off as intense and terrifying in this new trailer.  Read More »


Reconnecting with an old friend sounds pretty nice, especially if said friend turns out to be a generous and thoughtful gift-giver. But in the first The Gift trailer, Simon (Jason Bateman) quickly realizes that his new old friend Gordo (Joel Edgerton) has a dark side — and that he could wind up exposing some of Simon’s unsavory secrets, too.

Edgerton directed and Rebecca Hall also stars. Hit the jump to watch The Gift trailer, and also to see the incredibly unsettling message “Gordo” personally sent Peter ahead of the trailer debut. Our boss will probably want to sleep with one eye open tonight. Read More »

Joel Edgerton in Exodus Gods and Kings

Just hours after Tom Hardy dropped out of Suicide Squad, word spread that Jake Gyllenhaal could replace him. But then just days after that, we heard Gyllenhaal had opted to pass, which leaves David Ayer‘s comic book movie with a gap to be filled.

Naturally, the rumor mill is only too happy to help fill it. The latest word is that Joel Edgerton and Jon Bernthal are both in the running to play Suicide Squad‘s Rick Flagg. Meanwhile, reports are also circulating that Gary Sinise and Joe Manganiello are in contention for other roles.
