The first trailer has been released for the newest film from Ben Affleck entitled, The Town. He directs and stars in the film about lies, manipulation, and love set against the backdrop of a bank job gone wrong — or right depending on how you look at it. The film takes place in Boston (no surprise there) so get ready for some serious accents and Blake Lively doing her best white trash-baby mama impression. Take a look…
The story follows a bank manager (Rebecca Hall), the career criminal (Affleck) who steals more than her heart, and the dedicated FBI agent (Jon Hamm) trying to bust the crook and his gang that includes Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner. Lively stars as the younger sister of Renner’s character, who happens to be the troubled ex-girlfriend of Affleck. Can you smell the drama?
This film looks really good but it gives away entirely too much of the plot. How awesome would it have been if we found out that Affleck kidnapped Hall during the movie and not in the trailer? Hopefully that’s just one layer of an even more complex story.
The Town is scheduled to hit theaters on September 10, 2010.
