Ben Affleck, before you start shuddering in understandable horror, has proven himself to be a pretty great director with 2007’s “Gone Baby Gone” and now he’s back in front of and behind the camera for the upcoming crime drama “The Town”. Just like GBG, The Town is set in Boston and follows a pair of criminals, one of whom falls for one of their hostages after robbing a bank. He’s determined to leave both Boston and his criminal life behind but his partner and an unrelenting FBI agent could make that difficult. It looks like it could be really good, definitely has that gritty “The Wire” or “The Shield” thing going on and the cast is pretty great including Jeremy Renner and Jon Hamm. It’s out this September and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
