Three-time Oscar nominee Johnny Depp is the star of the show as the terrifying Boston mob boss Whitey Bulger in the critcally acclaimed Black Mass.

The video takes you behind the scenes of the film, speaking to Director Scott Cooper and two of the other stars of the film, Joel Edgerton and Benedict Cumberbatch.

The film is set in 1970s South Boston, where FBI Agent John Connolly (Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster Jimmy Bulger (Depp) to collaborate with the FBI in order to eliminate their common enemy: the Italian mob.

The drama tells the story of this unholy alliance, which spiraled out of control, allowing Whitey to evade law enforcement while consolidating his power and becoming one of the most ruthless and dangerous gangsters in Boston history.
