The Town Movie Trailer has premiered. The Town (2010) is written/directed by Ben Affleck and stars Ben Affleck, Gary Galone, Chris Cooper, Rebecca Hall, Blake Lively, Jon Hamm, Jeremy Renner, and Pete Postlethwaite. The Town‘s plot synopsis: “The film follows the action of four Charlestown, Massachusetts bank robbers as they are pursued by law enforcement. Ben Affleck plays a professional thief who falls for a bank manager (Rebecca Hall) after a dangerous heist. He struggles with this newfound relationship whilst evading a tenacious FBI agent (Jon Hamm) looking to catch him and his crew before they rob another bank.” Gone Baby Gone was a fantastic first film and Affleck gained a lot of respect for it. This film looks like a worthy follow-up directorial effort. I also like the fact that it is centered in Affleck home state of Massachusettes, it seems gritty, and the love story in film seems authentic but doomed at the same time. Should be good. The Town opens on September 10, 2010.
