Second Trailer for Ben Affleck's Prohibition Era Movie 'Live by Night'
"What I learned was… powerful men don't have to be cruel." Warner Bros has debuted the second trailer for Ben Affleck's new crime drama Live by Night, set during the Prohibition times in the 1920s in Boston. Ben Affleck stars in and directs this, playing the youngest son of a Boston police captain, who becomes an outlaw. The full ensemble cast features Scott Eastwood, Elle Fanning, Zoe Saldana, Sienna Miller, Chris Sullivan, Anthony Michael Hall, Brendan Gleeson, Titus Welliver, Chris Messina, Chris Cooper and Derek Mears. This looks so damn good! Amazing cinematography by Robert Richardson, and a helluva violent story about criminals, bootlegging, and the American dream. Both trailers for this movie have been superb, I'm very much looking forward to it. Affleck certainly knows what he's doing as a director.
Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for Ben Affleck's Live by Night, direct from WB's YouTube:
Boston, MA - 1926. The '20s are roaring. Liquor is flowing, bullets are flying, and one man sets out to make his mark on the world. Prohibition has given rise to an endless network of underground distilleries, speakeasies, gangsters, and corrupt cops. Joe Coughlin, the youngest son of a prominent Boston police captain, has long since turned his back on his strict and proper upbringing. Now having graduated from a childhood of petty theft to a career in the pay of the city's most fearsome mobsters, Joe enjoys the spoils, thrills, and notoriety of being an outlaw. But life on the dark side carries a heavy price. Live by Night is both written and directed by actor/filmmaker Ben Affleck, who directed the films Gone Baby Gone, The Town and Argo previously. Based on Dennis Lehane's novel of the same name. Warner Bros will open Live by Night in limited theaters in December, with a wide theatrical release on January 13th, 2017. Who's in?
