Dakota Johnson Is Excellent In This Exclusive Black Mass Clip

The Debrief: The 50 Shades Of Grey actress stars alongside Johnny Depp in new Oscar-tipped crime drama, Black Mass Trailer

Out today, Black Mass is the story of Whitey Bulger, notorious mob boss who ruled Boston's South Side in the 1980s. Starring an almost unrecognisable Johnny Depp as Whitey, Benedict Cumberbatch as his brother, Joel Edgerton as their friend and FBI agent, it's tipped for big things when awards season comes.

The real stand out performance in our eyes though? Dakota Johnson. Yes her of the breathy 50 Shades fame. In Black Mass she plays Lindsey Cyr, Whitey's wife and mother of his only son and, though she's not in the film for much (tbh there's not a lot of women in the film, Theresa Stanley, Whitey's subsequent partner of nearly 30 years is missing altogether) she's absolutely bloody excellent. More please Dakota!

Black Mass is in cinemas November 25
