Review: In The Lovers And The Despot, Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction

22 September 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Truth is stranger than fiction. In 1978, famous South Korean director Shin Sang-ok and his ex-wife, actress Choi Eun-hee were kidnapped in Hong Kong by North Korean agents under order of Kim Jung-il, the future leader of North Korea. While they were held as captives, they made 7 movies in the hermit kingdom, until they made a daring escape in 1986 to Vienna. This bizarre and fantastic experiences that Shin and Choi went through reads like a crazy combination of a high-flying political thriller and a lurid tale from the dark underbelly of the movie business. And it's totally ripe for a movie adaptation that could easily be much more fascinating and entertaining than Ben Affleck's Argo.  Two British filmmakers, Robert Canaan and Ross Adam,...

18 September 2016 5:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Hollywood costume design company Ironhead Studio has shared an image of two maquettes it created for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, featuring The Flash’s prototype suit glimpsed ever-so-briefly during the Knightmare dream sequence, along with an unused design for Cyborg; check them out here…

What do you make of the costumes? How does Cyborg’s design stack up against the one we’ve seen in Justice League? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below…

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs.

Jimmy Kimmel Says 'I'm F---ing Ben Affleck' Was Jennifer Garner's Idea

Jimmy Kimmel is giving credit where credit is due. During a sit-down with People and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle, the late-night host revealed that the "I'm F---ing Ben Affleck" bit on Jimmy Kimmel Live! was, in fact, Jennifer Garner's idea. Before the Ben Affleck video was born, it began "early on" with the actor's best friend Matt Damon, according to Kimmel. "We had a really bad show.

Ynms: "Live By Night"

13 September 2016 5:01 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Chris Feil

Ben Affleck's Live By Night, his directorial follow-up to Argo, has been long-rumored to pop up as a late entry into the 2016 Oscar race. Could Warner Bros. be out for some Best Director retribution after Affleck famously missed the nomination for that film? Don't be surprised if its January debut is preceded by a quick qualifying run in the hopes of making up for that sting.

Now we have our first look at what Affleck has been working on between Batman gigs. His second Dennis Lehane adaptation, the film finds the director in his crime saga sweet spot before also taking over the Batman directorial duties. Will this be one to savor before he's wrapped up in that studio monster? Take a look at the first trailer:

Let's break down the Yes, No, Maybe So of this first look »

Watch Ben Affleck in Gangster Mode for Terrific First 'Live by Night' Trailer

9 September 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Ten years ago, Ben Affleck resuscitated his sagging movie career, first by giving a finely-tuned performance as George Reeves (also known as Superman) in Hollywoodland and then by making Gone Baby Gone, a moody mystery that was his directorial debut, the following year. While Affleck is still best known as an actor, the films he's directed since then have reflected his growing talents and ambitions. The Town showed he could handle action as well as atmospheric drama and Argo introduced a lighter touch that fit the thrills of the 1980 U.S. hostage crisis in Iran. For his next movie as a director, Affleck is rewinding the clock far deeper into the past. Live By Night is based on a novel by Dennis Lehane, the Boston-based author of the novel that served as source material for...

Ben Affleck Heads For The Roaring ’20s In Thrilling First Trailer For Live By Night

9 September 2016 6:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“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.

Gal Gadot shares behind-the-scenes image of Wonder Woman from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

9 September 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the character having made her big screen debut earlier this year in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Gal Gadot is set to reprise the role of Diana Prince next year for Wonder Woman’s very first solo movie, courtesy of director Patty Jenkins.

We saw a trailer for Wonder Woman during Comic-Con, but with a good few months to go before the marketing campaign gets underway proper, Gadot is helping to tick things over by releasing a series of behind-the-scenes images from Dawn of Justice, with the latest showing the Amazon Princess battling Mo-Cap Man Doomsday from the final battle of the Zack Snyder-directed blockbuster…

The First Trailer For Ben Affleck’s Live By Night Is Here!!!

8 September 2016 11:56 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

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. »

Ben Affleck’s Live By Night movie: the first trailer

8 September 2016 10:43 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Sep 9, 2016

Ben Affleck's first directorial outing since Argo is Live By Night. Here's the very first trailer...

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.

He leads a cast too that also includes Elle Fanning, Brendan Gleeson, Chris Messina, Zoe Saldana, Sienna Miller and Chris Cooper. And the first trailer and poster for the film have been released.

Here, then, is the trailer…

Here’s the poster….

And here’s the official synopsis…

First Trailer for Ben Affleck’s Dennis Lehane Adaptation ‘Live by Night’

8 September 2016 6:48 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

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. »
