‘Black Mass’ Trailer: Murder, Mayhem, Johnny Depp and Boston Accents
The new Black Mass trailer pulls the focus back from Johnny Depp’s performance as the notorious gangster Whitey Bulger, showcasing an ensemble of actors that has to be seen to be believed. And like any movie set in Boston, each and every actor wield their accents like bricks. This isn’t a Boston movie – it’s a Baahstin movie and everyone in the cast is seemingly trying to one-up the others when it comes to dropping their R’s.
‘Black Mass’ Trailer: Johnny Depp Reminds You He’s a Great Actor
It wasn't long ago that Johnny Depp, a highly respected actor, starred in the first Pirates of the Caribbean and became a huge A-list star. But, instead of taking his newfound fame (and wealth) and using that to star in some more challenging roles, he’s starred in a bunch of Pirates sequels, Tim Burton movies and Mortdecai. Had Johnny Depp lost his touch?, people asked. If this new Black Mass trailer is to be believed, no. Absolutely not.

‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ Plot Synopsis Revealed as Filming Begins
After years of false starts and delays, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales finally began filming in Australia yesterday. And that’s not a moment too soon for the franchise’s star, Johnny Depp, who hasn’t headlined a hit since 2011’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

Actors! They're weird! Johnny Depp may be one of Hollywood's brightest stars, but that doesn't mean he's immune to the weirdness of artistry -- in fact, Depp has kind of gone whole hog on this being "out there" thing, and it's very much a part of his process as an actor. Considering his box office cache and personal success, yeah, it's worked for him.

It's been three years since ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ was unleashed upon an unsuspecting populace, convincing even the most die hard fans of Disney's lucrative franchise that Captain Jack Sparrow needed to take a break. Maybe forever. And yet, these past years have been filled with rumors and casting and almost-casting for ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.’ Like it or not, this film is coming and now it has the young up-and-comer Brenton Thwaites in its drunken, slurred, overlong clutches.

‘The Lone Ranger’ TV Spot Gets You Prepared for the Fourth of July
Disney has released a new TV spot for 'The Lone Ranger,' in keeping with the film's July 3 release date. But there isn't much -- if any -- new footage to be seen in this commercial. We get a peek at the familiar train sequence again, which seems like a big selling point for the studio -- understandably so, since director Gore Verbinski likely spent a ton of money to execute it...

‘The Lone Ranger’ Featurette: Johnny Depp Fell Off His Horse
'The Lone Ranger' will be hitting theaters in a little over two weeks. Right now it doesn't feel like one of the summer's biggest tentpole films; perhaps it was waiting for some of the big superhero films to hit screens before going for the full-court ad press. But unlike its comic book competition, this film wants you to know many of its big set pieces were done practically.
