Ryan Gosling showcased some sweet dance moves in La La Land and as many of his fans are well aware, he has been a dance master since he was a little kid. The 36-year-old star was put into an awkward situation on The Graham Norton Show. During his interview, which also featured his La La Land co-star Emma Stone and Live by Night stars Ben Affleck and Sienna Miller, a particularly spectacular video of a young Gosling performing was screened. The clip, which shows him and several girls dancing to a remix of Cathy Dennis' 1990 pop hit "Touch Me (All Night Long)" at a talent show, had gone viral in 2015. The actor later parodied it »
During an interview on The Graham Norton Show that aired Friday, Gosling — alongside his La La Land costar Emma Stone, as well as Sienna Miller and Ben Affleck — talked about his experience at the 2007 Academy Awards. The actor, 36, decided to take his mom Donna and sister Mandi as his dates to the award show.
That year, he earned his first nomination for Best Actor for his role in Half Nelson. But there was more to the evening festivities than his nomination, »

It is a huge step going from playing Daredevil to playing Batman, and Affleck is learning that he must be very careful with any comments he makes, as any innocuous comment will blow the internet to shreds. Earlier this week, Lrm's own Mario-Francisco Robles reported about an interview on Jimmy Kimmel, where Affleck is saying that nobody cares about his new movie and all that fans want is Batman news.
"It's one of those things that's really frustrating — with Live by Night, it took me a year and a half to write it and get it ready and I worked really hard, and nobody gave a sh*t. No one was like, 'Where's Live by Night?' But with Batman I keep on getting, 'Where's the f%@king 'Batman?!' and I'm like, 'I'm working! Can you give me a second?!'"

Live by Night, 2016.
Written and Directed by Ben Affleck.
Starring Ben Affleck, Elle Fanning, Zoe Saldana, Sienna Miller, Chis Messina, Robert Glenister, Remo Girone, Chris Cooper, Anthony Michael Hall, Clark Gregg, Max Casella, Miguel J. Pimentel, Titus Welliver, Matthew Maher, and Brendan Gleeson.
A group of Boston-bred gangsters set up shop in balmy Florida during the Prohibition era, facing off against the competition and the Klu Klux Klan.
Writer, director, star Ben Affleck’s (The Town, Argo) Live by Night suffers from an identity crisis. It doesn’t know if it wants to be a tale of Robin Hood style Prohibition-era mobsters, a classic revenge story, a war between gangsters and the Ku Klux Klan, a battle over turf between Irish and Italian mobs, the startup of a casino, or whatever the other subplots are that I’m forgetting. The point is that Live by Night is a mess structurally and narratively, »

Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe hasn’t gotten off to the best start. With the particularly rough Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and the so-so Suicide Squad, things aren’t looking too good for the studio right now. Thankfully, they’ve got two chances to turn things around this year what with both Wonder Woman and Justice League arriving. While the former film is certainly important, it’s more Zack Snyder’s upcoming effort that everything hinges on.
Though it’s still too soon to tell how it will ultimately turn out, the reception to what the studio has shown us so far has certainly been positive. From everything we’ve been hearing, Warner Bros. is really hoping to get their plans back on track and perform a complete 180 from the doom and gloom found in Batman V Superman. That’s a sentiment echoed by Ben Affleck as well, »

We recently had the opportunity to catch up with Ben Affleck and Sienna Miller to discuss Live by Night, but we obviously couldn’t allow the former to escape without asking about The Batman. The actor and director has been fielding questions for weeks now, making it clear that he’ll only take the helm of a solo outing for the Caped Crusader if it feels 100% right.
“It was great, and there’s a lot of changes and a lot of new stuff. There was a whole feeling of kind of ‘rebirth’ and there’s an exciting group of actors. You know, Ezra Miller and Jason Momoa and guys like that, so much fun, and Gal Gadot »

HeyUGuys recently managed to catch up with Ben Affleck to talk Live by Night, and they were quick to ask the actor and director about what it was like to work on Justice League. Interestingly, he was quick to use the word "Rebirth" in regards to the current state of the DC Films Universe before being sure to point out just how much "fun" he had while working on the upcoming release from Zack Snyder. "It was great, and there's a lot of changes and a lot of new stuff. There was a whole feeling of kind of 'rebirth' and there's an exciting group of actors. You know, Ezra Miller and Jason Momoa and guys like that, so much fun, and Gal Gadot who's great and Henry Cavill. It was a lot of fun," he added. The interviewer then suggested that Sienna Miller would be a good fit for the »
Pajama dressing has officially been A Thing for months now, but the trend has been taken to an even more major level this week, thanks to three stars who stepped out in the slinkiest, silkiest, sexiest garments they could find, all in seductive silver-gray. From left, Kate Beckinsale wore charcoal silk pants with a flowing dove-gray duster and Christian Louboutin heels; Chanel Iman wore a silvery full-length spaghetti strap dress and matching duster (which looked straight out of an Old Hollywood star’s boudoir set) with Stuart Weitzman heels; and Sienna Miller attended a Golden Globes afterparty in a pale »

Today sees the release of Ben Affleck’s Live By Night, a thriller that is a far cry from the heady heights of the DC Cinematic Universe and the Justice League. We spoke to the director and his co-star Sienna Miller about working together on the film, as well as a little piece about the new Batman film.
Scott Davis also sat down with actor Chris Messina, who plays Dion Bartolo in Live By Night. The actor has also appeared in another of Affleck’s films, the Oscar-winning Argo as well as a fine run of indie movies including the divine Ruby Sparks, Celeste and Jesse Forever and Like Crazy.
Live By Night is out in UK Cinemas now.
Live By Night Movie Synopsis

While the circus of DC’s Justice League and the future solo Batman film is taking up a lot of Ben Affleck’s time right now there’s the small matter of the Oscar-winning director’s new film. Live By Night reunites the director with novelist Dennis Lehane, with whom he collaborated on his directorial debut Gone baby Gone a decade ago. The film, released today in UK cinemas, has a fine cast and we’ve spent the day chatting to the director and his cast.
Scott Davis sat down with the director and Sienna Miller to talk what drew them each to the film, how their characters relate to one another and Affleck talks about casting Miller, and what made her perfect for the role. Affleck talks about balancing a film such as this with the enormity of the DC Comics projects, and how it was »

In a film about starting over and new beginnings, Ben Affleck struggles to breathe life in front of and behind the camera. Written, directed, and starring Affleck, Live By Night is a stylish gangster film that’s so languid and dull that even Affleck’s unnecessary narration throughout the film sounds like he’s falling asleep telling his own tale.
World War I has left Joe Coughlin (Affleck) jaded and emotionally wounded. The son of a lawman (Brendan Gleeson) follows down a crime-ridden path of robbery and corruption. Things get dicey when he gets involved with the girl (Sienna Miller) of one of the two big crime bosses in Boston. It’s a tug of war between the Irish and Italian mobs, which eventually extends down to Florida when Joe goes to work for the Italian mob. However, Joe runs into more issues with some locals when he partners with »

Watch the new Live By Night clips below.
What you put out into this world will always come back to you, but it never comes back how you predict. Taking fatherly advice is not in Joe Coughlin’s nature. Instead, the Wwi vet is a self-proclaimed anti-establishment outlaw, despite being the son of the Boston Police Deputy Superintendent. Joe’s not all bad, though; in fact, he’s not really bad enough for the life he’s chosen. Unlike the gangsters he refuses to work for, he has a sense of justice and an open heart, »

The Oscar winner admitted, “When you do all that, it’s hard to avoid blame!” saying he thinks that people give him “a little more credit” now that he is also directing.
“But people still don’t respect me!” he joked.
“Why else get into directing?” he joked. “That’s kind of the whole point!”
And he isn »
Chicago – Movies released in the first weeks of January are invariably either awards hopefuls trying to gain momentum or studio dreck being buried in the dead of winter, and quickly forgotten by Valentine’s Day. “Live By Night” aspires to be the former, but ends up being the latter.
Ben Affleck stars as a Boston stickup man Joe Coughlin, the son of a Boston police officer, who reluctantly becomes part of a gang to get revenge on a rival mob boss. If you think back to the time before “Argo,” “The Town,” and “Gone Baby Gone,” this is the kind of movie you’d think of as a movie directed by Ben Affleck, before that became an improbable sign of quality filmmaking.

Oh, Harry Potter. The franchise that’s launched a thousand careers. Okay, that may be overselling it a bit. However, there’s no doubt that no matter your opinion on the Harry Potter books or the Harry Potter films, they've had an immeasurable impact on pop culture, and while it may not have launched a thousand careers, it definitely launched two healthy ones with Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson. A good five-plus years after the final film hit theaters, these two are still as relevant today as they ever were. In addition to the careers the films have launched, there’s also the fact that they were released over the course of an entire decade, after all, and with such a release schedule comes the fact that it’s a film series that’s shaped millions of childhoods.
It’s with all this in mind that we go into the »

Sienna Miller hit the Live By Night red carpet on Wednesday in London, England, wearing a lovely black and cream-colored Lanvin gown, but inevitably got cold while posing in the 50-degree weather. Her co-star, Ben Affleck, came to her rescue and loaned her his black overcoat while she chatted with the press. Meanwhile, Affleck made do with his navy blue suit jacket.

Things have changed a lot in Hollywood since the old contract-player days. However, if there’s any talent who’s identified with a particular studio at the moment, it’s Ben Affleck.
The square-jawed, 44-year-old Bostonian produced, directed and starred in Warner Bros.’ last Best Picture Oscar winner, Argo. He’s also made The Town and The Accountant for the company in the past few years. And Affleck not only plays the most important character, Batman/Bruce Wayne, in Warner’s latest round of DC Comics-based movies, »

Though thriving in its set-up, Ben Affleck’s return to the director’s chair for the first time since the Oscar winning Argo, falls short in its pay-off, becoming needlessly convoluted as we progress throughout the narrative. Attempting to cover so much ground and a myriad of characters and themes, the complexity proves detrimental, which is a shame, for when this feature is simple, it makes for an engaging cinematic experience.
The tale begins in Prohibition Era Boston, and whether he likes it or not, Joe Coughlin (Affleck) is married to the gangster life, mostly due to the fact he’s having an affair with Emma Gould (Sienna Miller), the partner of the uncompromising crime lord Albert White (Robert Glenister), head of the Irish mafia. An outlaw with a cop for a father (Brendan Gleeson), Joe’s secret is uncovered by a rival gang leader, and if »

Read our Live By Night review below.
Live By Night is Ben Affleck‘s fourth film as director after cutting his teeth with his debut feature, the impressive Gone Baby Gone, followed by the slightly superior The Town ,and then the Oscar-winning Argo. One might say that he’s on a cinematic roll, at least behind the camera, so it’s no surprise that he has aimed high for his latest, the period gangster epic Live By Night.
The film opens in 1920s Boston where Affleck’s character, local hoodlum Joe Coughlin is introduced as the son of the local chief of police (and Wwi veteran) Thomas Coughlin, played by Brendan Gleeson. Joe is carrying out petty crimes to finance his lifestyle, gradually moving up the crime food chain. »
