Ben Affleck's The Town

This is what I'm talkin' about! Empire has debuted another new international poster for Ben Affleck's crime drama The Town that is a huge improvement over the domestic poster released last week. Yes, this one has more "floating heads" but they're arranged in a slick way and I love the imagery underneath a lot more this time. I like talking about this movie because it's one of my most anticipated and I hope we can keep building buzz for it. Despite his otherwise interesting career, I think Affleck is a talented filmmaker and I'm looking forward to seeing how he did with this new crime drama. It's out in theaters in only a few more weeks, too!

Ben Affleck's The Town Poster

As he plans his next job, a longtime thief tries to balance his feelings for a bank manager connected to one of his earlier heists, as well as the FBI agent trying to bring his crew down. Based on Chuck Hogan's book.

The Town is both written and directed by Boston native actor-turned-filmmaker Ben Affleck, who made his feature directorial debut with the drama Gone Baby Gone a few years back. Affleck co-wrote the screenplay with Peter Craig (Waterbug) and Sheldon Turner (Up in the Air). It's based on Chuck Hogan's novel Prince of Thieves first published in 04. Warner Bros will be bringing The Town to theaters this September 17th.

    I can honestly say this is one of the films I REALLY!! look forward to. I really enjoyed Gone Baby Gone and I have really high hopes for Affleck as a director.
    CAN'T WAIT!!

    I really, really want this to be good. I absolutely love that trailer.

    I loved the first one. Didn't care to much for the second one
    both of these posters are just kind of odd. First had that bizarre scene taken out of context with the strip of stars at the bottom...just seemed kind of thrown this has the heads in the clouds and a much better scene of crime... This movie must be a tough want to sell the unique criminals and the gritty action, but at the same time, this movie also has a bunch of big name it kind of messes with everything. They only do posters like this when they are afraid that the movie won't find an audience. They're expecting a 12-15 mil opening weekend and that's probably what they'll get.
