Ben Affleck has been having a pretty good 2016 in movies so far. He gave an acclaimed performance as Batman, his next movie The Accountant looks very promising, and his latest directorial movie, Live by Night, has just released its first trailer and will have a limited awards contending release this December.
Live by Night is written and directed by Ben Affleck, who has made three great films in Gone Baby, Gone, The Town and Argo. Live by Night follows in the footsteps of those previous films as it looks like another entertaining and thrilling picture. Watch the trailer below.
Live by Night is a gangster film based on Dennis Lehane’s novel of the same name, who also wrote the novel Gone Baby, Gone. Ben Affleck is the sole writer on this film, unlike his last three previous outings, and leads a cast that includes Zoe Saldana, Brendan Gleeson, Elle Fanning, Sienna Miller, Chris Messina and the incomparable Chris Cooper. With an impressive cast, some gorgeous locations, the always exciting period setting, and some impressive looking action, this film could be a lot of fun. This trailer has a lot of swagger and just looks cool. As a fan of gangster films both old and new, I look forward to seeing this when it’s finally released. What do you guys think? Impressed like I am? Let m know in the comments below.
