Portions of the movie were filmed in the Boston area.

When the initial trailer was released, Patricia Donahue told WBZ-TV she believed Hollywood was glamorizing a killer.

Donahue’s husband Michael was killed by Bulger as he was giving a friend a ride home.

Bulger, 84, was convicted in 2013 of a string of murders from the 1970s and ’80s, as well as extortion, money-laundering and weapons charges.

The notorious gangster was sentenced to two life sentences plus five years.

Black Mass opens in theaters on September 18.
