Tonight Sunday evening 11th October all eyes will be one central London as the BFI London Film Festival Virgin Atlantic Gala of BLACK MASS takes place. It’s expected Benedict Cumberbatch will be in attendance with one very special guest but who could that be? Here’s……!
In Black Mass we head back to the 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster Jimmy Bulger (Johnny 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 Bulger to evade law enforcement while escalating his power to become the most feared crime lord in Boston and one of the most dangerous gangsters in U.S. history.
After months of wondering if Johnny Depp would ever star in a movie that would have critical success.Thankfully after it’s World Premiere in Venice it looks like Black Mass will deliver but only just. Whilst the early reviews haven’t been perfect, for a Depp film it’s a success and that’s good enough for us !
So when does the the action kick off? You can start watching live from the Red Carpet from 6.30pm (BST), and after the even ends around 7.15-730pm the video will show the highlights package.
Black Mass is set for 27th November UK & Irish cinema release, co-starring Dakota Johnson, Jesse Plemons, Kevin Bacon and Peter Sarsgaard.
