James Gray’s emotionally and visually resplendent epic tells the story of Lieutenant Colonel Percy Fawcett (a remarkable Charlie Hunnam), the British military-man-turned-explorer whose search for a lost city deep in the Amazon grows into an increasingly feverish, decades-long magnificent obsession that takes a toll on his reputation, his home life with his wife (Sienna Miller) and children, and his very existence. Gray and cinematographer Darius Khondji cast quite a spell, exquisitely pitched between rapture and dizzying terror. Also starring Robert Pattinson and Tom Holland, The Lost City of Z represents a form of epic storytelling that has all but vanished from the landscape of modern cinema, and a rare level [ Read More ]

Ouch! Bella Hadid lived a model's nightmare Wednesday when she wiped out on the runway during the Michael Kors fashion show in New York City. The 19-year-old bombshell fell flat on her face, but managed to get back up and finish the show with the rest of the models, which included Kendall Jenner. While we could describe the embarrassment and pain that Bella probably felt in the moment, we'll focus instead on the faces of the people in the audience, which happened to include Emily Blunt and Sienna Miller. The reactions from those watching (no one got up, by the way) truly says what we're all thinking and feeling while looking at the photos of Bella collapsing. "Oh God. »
Late last week, we got our first true glimpse of Ben Affleck’s latest directorial outing. As a fan of all three films Affleck has made as a director, Live by Night had already been on my radar, but this was a nice reminder that it’s not far out now. Scheduled for a January release date, rumors have gone back and forth about whether or not Warner Bothers is going to give it an Oscar qualifying run in December. Regardless, I’m greatly looking forward to it and this first Trailer did nothing to change that. You’ll obviously get a look at it at the end of this piece, but first…let’s discuss a bit! For those wondering, the film is an adaptation of the Dennis Lehane novel of the same name, representing the second time that Affleck has gone to Lehane for inspiration. It is set »

Their mutual passion for tennis is proving to be a good match. Sienna Miller was spotted attending the U.S. Open with her Foxcatcher director Bennett Miller on Sunday. Photos showed the pair sitting side-by-side and smiling as they watched the athletes compete. Sienna, 34, and Bennett, 49, were previously photographed together at Wimbledon in July, attending the tennis tournament twice in one week. The two had collaborated on 2014's Foxcatcher, the true-crime drama in which Sienna played the wife of slain pro wrestler David Schultz. It earned Bennett an Oscar nomination for Best Director. Reps haven't commented about whether the two are dating. »

“Powerful men don’t have to be cruel.” Bringing an end to a four-year wait, Warner Bros. has premiered our first look at Ben Affleck’s Prohibition-era drama Live By Night in action ahead of a planned release in January.
Having been attached to the adaptation from the get-go, Affleck wrote and directed this cinematic spin on Dennis Lehane’s novel of the same name, one that will also have him lead the charge as Joe Coughlin, the enigmatic son of a Boston Police Superintendent who trades a chance to uphold the family name for a life of organized crime. Set against the Roaring ’20s, Live By Night is the Argo follow-up many have been waiting for, particularly those unconcerned by Affleck’s ongoing tenure donning the cape and cowl for WB.

Before he donned the cowl once more for Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Ben Affleck took some time out from the Dceu to step behind the camera for the first time since 2012’s Argo, adapting Denis Lehane’s prohibition era novel Live by Night for the big screen. On top of writing and directing, Affleck takes the lead as Joe Coughlin, a small time bootlegger in Florida who works his way up to been a notorious gangster. The powerful first trailer for this long awaited follow-up to Argo is finally here, and boy, does it have tons of style, evoking fond memories of other period set crime dramas, especially Road to Perdition and The Untouchables, but still telling it’s own interesting tale of a conflicted villain. And Affleck has surrounded himself with a great cast, including Elle Fanning, Brendan Gleeson, Zoe Saldana, Sienna Miller, Chris Cooper, and Anthony Michael Hall. »

He had to squeeze the making of the film in during production on his DC projects, but Ben Affleck’s first directorial effort since he won another Oscar for Argo is nearly upon us. It’s an adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s novel Live By Night (Lehane was the source inspiration for Affleck’s directorial debut, the excellent Gone, Baby, Gone). This time, Affleck has written the screenplay as well as directed the movie.
Here, then, is the trailer…
Here’s the poster….
And here’s the official synopsis…
The very first trailer for the upcoming Ben Affleck-directed Live By Night has just been released – a year away from its official debut date. Affleck stars alongside Elle Fanning, Brendan Gleeson, Chris Messina, Sienna Miller, Zoe Saldana and Chris Cooper.
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, setting Joe on a path of revenge, ambition, romance and »

Based on Dennis Lehane's book of the same name, the movie is set in the 1920s and chronicles Joe Coughlin, portrayed by Affleck, as he succumbs to a life of crime. "I signed up to fight in the war. I went away a soldier," the son of a Boston police captain says. »

Ben Affleck‘s been involved with an adaptation of Dennis Lehane‘s Live by Night for almost four years, but in the time since his signing, was cast as Batman for at least three movies that have either come out, are currently shooting, or have had their development made a matter of public record — and one of which he’ll be writing and directing. The director’s Argo follow-up has been a long time (i.e. basically an entire Presidential term) coming, which makes its having nearly been completed a pleasant surprise. Ahead of a release this winter, Warner Bros. have debuted the first trailer.
You want old-timey crime-committing? You want some Boston accents? You seek a doomed romance, yes? Affleck seems to have your interests in mind, which doesn’t even account for Live by Night‘s fine cast — Brendan Gleeson, Elle Fanning, Zoe Saldana, Titus Welliver, Sienna Miller et al. »
