“Live by Night” is set in the roaring 20s when Prohibition hasn’t stopped the flow of booze in an underground network of gangster-run speakeasies. The opportunity to gain power and money is there for any man with enough ambition and nerve and Joe Coughlin, the son of the Boston Police Superintendent, long ago turned his back on his strict upbringing for the spoils of being an outlaw. But even among criminals there are rules and Joe breaks a big one: crossing a powerful mob boss by stealing his money and his moll. The fiery affair ends in tragedy, »

Word comes by way of Brazilian outlet CinePOP (via Comic Book), where the actress fielded questions about xXx: The Return of Xander Cage – the 2017 action sequel in which she plays Rebecca “Becky” Clearidge – her dream superhero role, and everything in between. Given how costumed heroes continue to dominant the current Hollywood landscape, a trend that shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon, the topic of superheroes is never too far away from conversation at press junkets, so when Dobrev was asked about a potential comic book role by CinePOP, the actress conceded that Wonder Woman stands as her number one.

While other Brat Packers of the 80s such as Robert Downey Jr. and James Spader are enjoying success with the Marvel universe, one fellow actor hasn't been so lucky. It looks like Anthony Michael Hall could be spending the next 7 years in prison. This arrest comes after he reportedly attacked his neighbor for leaving a gate open.
Anthony Michael Hall made a name for himself in the 80s starring in John Hughes' original teen comedy trilogy, starting with Sixteen Candles in 1984 followed by both Breakfast Club and Weird Science in 1985. The actor, who is now 48 years old, has been charged with felony of battery with serious bodily injury by the Los Angeles County District Attorney. This news was first reported by TMZ.
The incident took place roughly two months ago. Hall reportedly broke his neighbor's wrist before injuring the individual's back in an altercation that took place outside their »
Much like the felines from which she draws inspiration, it would be fair to say that Catwoman tends to split opinion. For every memory of Michelle Pfeiffer’s purring Pvc-clad kitty, or Anne Hathaway’s slinky, stylish real-world cat burglar, there are those who recall Halle Berry’s cheesy, basketball-playing, milk-supping Patience Phillips iteration, which still stands as one of the most painful renderings of a classic comic-book icon in Hollywood history. Worse still, the execrable 2004 effort is almost entirely responsible for the view among studio executives that female-led superhero movies are bad for business – which in turn is the reason Patty Jenkins’ upcoming Wonder Woman will be the first film of its kind to hit multiplexes in more than a decade. »

Back in June, Marvel Comics appeared to take a blatant shot at Warner Bros.' Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in their comic Spider-Man/Deadpool issue #6. The issue featured a movie poster for Nighthawk vs. Hyperion: Yawn of Boredom, which both Deadpool and Spider-Man commented on after leaving a screening. It seems that Marvel Comics has taken another subtle shot at this divisive superhero movie once again with their issue of Uncanny X-Men Annual #1, which was released last week.
ComicBook.com discovered that this comic features a backup story written and drawn by Anthony Piper, which features Domino being contacted by the mutant Sunspot, who is now the head of the Avengers Idea Mechanics and the New Avengers. Sunspot wants Domino to conduct a secret mission for him, which involves heading to South America to kill a South American military leader who has been hunting down and killing mutants. »
We don't know a ton about who is going to appear in The Batman, the upcoming Ben Affleck directed solo Batman movie for Warner Bros. At the moment, outside of the Dark Knight himself, the movie has its main villain in Deathstroke and it is a safe bet J.K. Simmons will appear as Jim Gordon and Jeremy Irons will appear as Alfred. We may not be able to add anyone else to that list at the moment, but we can probably cross one off. Sorry, Catwoman.
A new, somewhat strange report from movie reporter Erik Davis courtesy of his personal Twitter account pretty much confirms that, at least for now, Catwoman won't be in Ben Affleck's Batman movie. The way it was revealed is where it gets a bit strange. Erik Davis posted an update to his Twitter after talking to actress Sienna Miller that stated the actress wants to play Catwoman, »
Warner Bros. has some very exciting films coming up in their DC Extended Universe. 2017 alone will see two major releases in the form of Wonder Woman and Justice League, both of which have a lot riding on them. After all, the studio stumbled out of the gate with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, and though the former is now becoming something of a cult classic, and the latter recently released an Extended Cut to repair its image, neither film can be classified as a definite win for WB.
Reactions so far to Wonder Woman have been fairly positive (though people still have their hesitations), and as for Justice League, it’s still a bit too early to make a call on that one. Looking ahead though, the next movie coming down the pipeline that’s starting to generate a fair amount of buzz is Ben Affleck »

It seems Ben Affleck's Live By Night co-star Sienna Miller wanted in on Affleck's upcoming Batman film but apparently received word back from Affleck that Selina Kyle is not in his script. Sienna Miller told me tonight that she wants to play Catwoman in Affleck's Batman movie. "She's not in the script but I wanna write her in!" — ErikDavis (@ErikDavis) November 19, 2016 Previously, actress Teresa Palmer, who was set to play Talia Al Ghul in George Miller's defunct Justice League Mortal film, expressed an interest in playing Talia in the Dceu but there are reportedly no plans to introduce her either (or her father Ra's) in Affleck's Batman movie. Admittedly, not much is known about Affleck's plans for his standalone Batman film other than the fact that it will feature Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. It »
Less than a month after Deadpool director Tim Miller surprisingly left the sequel Deadpool 2 over creative differences, 20th Century Fox has found his replacement. David Leitch, who along with Chad Stahelski directed the 2014 cult classic John Wick, has signed on to direct this highly-anticipated follow-up. It isn't known if production will still begin in early 2017, as previously rumored, or when the movie may be released, but those announcements may be coming soon now that a director is on board.
Deadline reports that David Letich beat out a number of top contenders to direct this superhero sequel, including Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) and Magnus Martens (Banshee). David Leitch was an uncredited director on John Wick, working alongside his partner Chad Stahelski, both of whom had been stuntmen and stunt coordinators for the past two decades. David Leitch will make his solo directing debut with The Coldest City, »
At the outset of awards season three years ago, few people had heard of Lupita Nyong’o, a former production assistant who’d made her feature film debut in the historical drama “12 Years a Slave.” Within months, the actress had won an Oscar, become the new face of Miu Miu and Lancôme, graced the cover of Vogue and topped best-dressed lists the world over. The architect of her rapid rise to red carpet fame was stylist Micaela Erlanger, who says the profession has never been more pivotal in the birthing of a star.
“The power of styling can quite literally shape an actress’ public persona and affect the trajectory of her career,” Erlanger says. “When our clients step out onto the red carpet, those images are disseminated, immediately, to millions and millions of television sets, computer screens, and mobile devices. These moments, and the reactions to these moments — both positive »

Ryan Phillippe was honored for his involvement and support of the Innocence Project at City Winery in New York City on Nov. 15.
The organization works to exonerate the wrongly convicted through DNA testing and reform the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice. The 42-year-old Shooter star explained to Et why he became an Innocence Project Ambassador.
"I got involved about four or five years ago," Phillippe explained. "I reached out to them. It was on my heart after I read an article in the Texas Monthly about a man named Michael Morton, and I put myself in his shoes as I read it. I was near tears."
Earlier in the month, Gerard Butler looked dapper as always at the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (Fidf) Gala in Beverly Hills on Nov. 3. The non-political »
With AFI Fest almost over, Warner Bros. screened “Live By Night” Wednesday night independently of the prestige event for members of the press (primarily the Bfca). No, ‘Live’ was officially not sneaking at AFI as rumored weeks earlier (amazingly there is no sneak this year). Happily, writer, director and star Ben Affleck was on hand alongside producer Jennifer Todd (also producing this year’s Oscar telecast, more on that in a minute) editor William Goldenberg and co-stars Chris Messina and Sienna Miller.

Following guild screenings earlier this week, Ben Affleck’s “Live by Night” unspooled for press in Los Angeles Wednesday night. The writer/director/producer/star was on hand to discuss the Prohibition-set Dennis Lehane adaptation with stars Chris Messina and Sienna Miller, as well as Oscar-winning film editor William Goldenberg (“Argo,” “The Imitation Game”).
Affleck said, both before the event and during a post-screening Q&A, that the idea for him was blending a throwback vibe with modern energy. And that’s fitting: In Lehane’s novel, Affleck has found a gangster yarn akin to the ’30s and ’40s genre pictures that inspired him, but one with a fresh face. It moves from the Depression-hit Boston metropolis to the melting pot of Tampa, Florida (filmed largely in Georgia), giving Affleck’s below-the-line team a rich opportunity.
“This is the first movie I’ve made that was really constructed on purpose, »

Burberry’s latest advert looks like something Julian Fellowes would watch on his laptop without any pants on. It is a lavish three-minute trailer for a period drama that will never be made. Directed by Asif Kapadia and starring Sienna Miller, Domhnall Gleeson, Dominic West and Lily James, it tells the story of the company’s founder Thomas Burberry as he kits out various figures from history: Ernest Shackleton, Betty Dawson (based on pilot Betty Kirby-Green) and first world war soldiers.

The first half of the trailer opens with Affleck’s Joe Coughlin character motorboating amid the placid Florida waters and saying in a voiceover, “Powerful men don’t have to be cruel.”
But he soon runs afoul the rum-running mob and is told “I’m going to rain hellfire on you,” by a mob boss.
The remainder of the trailer shows an ample variety of murder via machine gun and other mayhem. Warner Bros.’ “Live by Night” is based on the book by Dennis Lehane. Affleck stars with Saldana, Sienna Miller, Chris Cooper, Brendan Gleeson, Chris Messina and Elle Fanning also star.
Affleck also adapted the screenpla and produced the movie along with Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Davisson Killoran and Jennifer Todd. Affleck also directed the adaptation of Lehane’s “Gone Baby Gone. »

Warner Bros. has released the final trailer for the upcoming Live By Night, which could be an early awards season candidate. Oscar winner Ben Affleck (Argo) directed and stars in this dramatic crime thriller. Affleck also wrote the screenplay, based on the award-winning best-seller by Dennis Lehane. This film marks the second collaboration for the fellow Boston natives, following the acclaimed drama Gone Baby Gone.
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, and both work against him, »
"What I learned was... powerful men don't have to be cruel." Warner Bros has debuted the second trailer for Ben Affleck's new crime drama Live by Night, set during the Prohibition times in the 1920s in Boston. Ben Affleck stars in and directs this, playing the youngest son of a Boston police captain, who becomes an outlaw. The full ensemble cast features Scott Eastwood, Elle Fanning, Zoe Saldana, Sienna Miller, Chris Sullivan, Anthony Michael Hall, Brendan Gleeson, Titus Welliver, Chris Messina, Chris Cooper and Derek Mears. This looks so damn good! Amazing cinematography by Robert Richardson, and a helluva violent story about criminals, bootlegging, and the American dream. Both trailers for this movie have been superb, I'm very much looking forward to it. Affleck certainly knows what he's doing as a director. Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for Ben Affleck's Live by Night, direct from WB's YouTube: Boston, »

Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for Ben Affleck’s upcoming crime thriller Live by Night. Based on Dennis Lehane’s novel of the same name, the film marks the second collaboration between the author and director following 2007’s Gone Baby Gone and sees Affleck starring alongside Elle Fanning, Brendan Gleeson, Chris Messina, Sienna Miller, Zoe Saldana, and Chris Cooper; watch it below after the official synopsis…

One of the last remaining questions marks in the 2017 Oscar race, Ben Affleck’s “Live By Night” arrives in theaters for an awards-qualifying run this Christmas, three years after “Argo” took home Best Picture. Affleck was famously snubbed for Best Director that year, and all eyes are watching his new film very closely to see if it can get him that elusive first directing Oscar nomination. All the ingredients for a powerhouse drama are certainly there, especially since it finds the actor-director adapting Dennis Lehane for the first time since “Gone Baby Gone,” arguably his best film.
Based on Lehane’s 2012 novel of the same name, “Live By Night” follows the rags-to-riches odyssey of gangster Joe Coughlin (Affleck). The son of a Boston cop, Coughlin finds himself pulled to the dark side as he takes to the criminal »
