Ultimately convicted of 11 of 19 murder charges, among a litany of other crimes including racketeering, conspiracy and extortion, the 86-year-old Bulger now spends his days in Florida, although unlike other elderly Florida residents his address is the United States Penitentiary, Coleman II. 

That government agents could protect such a man and even unwittingly assist him in his rise to power is at the very center of the riveting Black Mass, which is already being called “one of the year’s best” by Deadline Hollywood. Led by Cooper's direction, the impressive cast also includes Kevin Bacon, Rory Cochrane, Jesse Plemons, W. Early Brown, David Harbour, Dakota Johnson, Julianne Nicholson, Corey Stoll, Peter Sarsgaard, Adam Scott and Juno Temple.

Black Mass enters theaters this Friday, September 18.
