New The Town Clip Out for Blood
08.31.10 by Ryan
Ben Affleck's latest movie, The Town, finds Affleck in the familiar territory of Boston and unfamiliar territory as the co-writer, director and star of the movie. Affleck's last directorial effort, Gone Baby Gone saw brother Casey Affleck take the lead role, leaving Ben to concentrate on matters behind the camera.
The Town, based on Chuck Hogan's award-winning novel Prince of Thieves, finds Affleck as the leader of a group of bank robbers who finds himself falling in love with a hostage (Rebecca Hall) from a recent job. In the recent Yahoo! Movies clip, Affleck talks to hot-headed Jem (Jeremy Renner) who has a difference of opinion on how to handle Hall and her potential knowledge of her abductors.
The Town opens September 17 and also stars Jon Hamm, Blake Lively, and Pete Postlethwaite.
