On Tuesday September 15, 2015 Hollywood took over the Coolidge Theater in Brookline, MA for the invite only screening of the movie “Black Mass”. I was in attendance to document the event.
The street out front of The Coolidge Theater was mobbed with excited fans hoping to score a glimpse of the cast. Some of the cast in attendance were Johnny Depp, Dakota Johnson, Jesse Plemon, and Joel Edgerton.
“Black Mass” is a 2015 American crime movie directed by Scott Cooper and written by Mark Mallouk, and Jez Butterworth, which is based on the 2001 book Black Mass: The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob by Dick Lehr and Gerard O’Neill. The movie stars Johnny Depp, Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon, Jesse Plemons, Peter Sarsgaard, Rory Cochrane, Adam Scott, Dakota Johnson, and Corey Stoll.
The movie follows the criminal career of infamous Irish-American mobster Whitey Bulger. The movie had its world premiere at the 72nd Venice International Film Festival. The movie will be in movie theaters worldwide on September 18, 2015.
