Apple‘s got your first look at Ben Affleck’s new crime film “The Town”, where Affleck plays a repentant bank robber who falls in love with one of his victims, and Jeremy Renner is his psycho partner that has “This guy is going to get you killed, Ben” written all over his forehead. Jon Hamm, meanwhile, is a fed after our hero/villain. I gotta admit, I was never really sold on Ben Affleck as a leading man, but he looks like he’s in total control here, and the results are quite tantalizingly … great? Check out the trailer for “The Town” and decide for yourself.
Doug MacRay is an unrepentant criminal, the de facto leader of a group of ruthless bank robbers who pride themselves in stealing what they want and getting out clean. With no real attachments, Doug never has to fear losing anyone close to him. But that all changed on the gang’s latest job, when they briefly took a hostage–bank manager, Claire Keesey. Though they let her go unharmed, Claire is nervously aware that the robbers know her name and where she lives. But she lets her guard down when she meets an unassuming and rather charming man named Doug not realizing that he is the same man who only days earlier had terrorized her. The instant attraction between them gradually turns into a passionate romance that threatens to take them both down a dangerous, and potentially deadly, path.
Starring Jeremy Renner, Blake Lively, Ben Affleck, Rebecca Hall, Jon Hamm, Chris Cooper, Asim Ahmad, Slaine, Ed O’Keefe, and directed by Ben Affleck.
