Here’s Your First Trailer for Black Mass

PSA: Hello, Kevin Bacon!

Just following the release the Entertainment Weekly and People magazine’s exclusive first looks at Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger, the Black Mass trailer is finally here.

Alongside Depp, Black Mass stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Billy Bulger, and Joel Edgerton as John Connolly, the corrupt FBI agent working for Whitey. Also in the mix are Kevin Bacon (what?!), Breaking Bad’s Jesse Plemmons, Sienna Miller, Parks and Rec star Adam Scott, and Fifty Shades of Grey actress Dakota Johnson.

The movie is based on the book written by Globe journalists Dick Lehr and Gerard O’Neill, and was shot in and around Boston in 2014. The movie held a local casting call for extras last April, and the Boston University Band also shot a special cameo in a St. Patrick’s Day Parade scene in June.

Black Mass opens in theaters September 18.
