Trailer For Affleck’s ‘Live By Night’

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Live by Night, the fourth directorial effort from Ben Affleck and the filmmakers long-awaited follow-up to 2012’s Best Picture-winning dramatic thriller Argo. Based on the Dennis Lehane novel of the same name, the film takes place during Prohibition and stars Affleck as Joe Coughlin, the prodigal son of a Boston police captain who works his way up from bootlegger to notorious Florida gangster. Affleck adapted the screenplay himself and recruited Oscar-winning The Hateful Eight and The Aviator cinematographer Robert Richardson to serve as his director of photography.

If you haven’t become aware by now that Affleck is a damn fine actor then you’ve really been missing out.  This one should prove to be another good movie, good subject matter, good director.

The movie releases January 13th.
