Fans camped outside the Venice Film Festival palace to ensure the best spots along the red carpet for Friday’s premiere of "Black Mass", in which Johnny Depp portrays Irish-American gangster James "Whitey" Bulger.

A few hundred meters away, equally excited fans gathered along the canal to catch a glimpse of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star arriving for a news conference.

"Black Mass" is screening in the out-of-competition line-up at the 72nd edition of the world's oldest film festival.
