New Justice League Trailer Introduces (Most Of) The Characters [Trailer And Pictures]


Ben Affleck Gal Gadot Jason Momoa Zack Snyder

The first major trailer for 'Justice League' has finally dropped and it tells us a lot about what to expect in the forthcoming DC movie. Following directly on from 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice', we meet the majority of the team and the dangers they're set to face.

[L-R] The Flash, Superman, Cyborg, Wonder Woman, Batman and Aquaman make up the Justice League[L-R] The Flash, Superman, Cyborg, Wonder Woman, Batman and Aquaman make up the Justice League

We see Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) having taken a long journey somewhere, most likely to track down Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) in an isolated fishing village. Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) is the first to unite with Bruce as he gathers the Justice League, both spurred by the brave sacrifice of their friend Clark Kent (Henry Cavill). Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) is a little shocked to be recruited, especially while he's got his own problems to deal with such as his father Henry Allen (Billy Crudup) being in prison.

Sienna Miller Recalls Filming An Entire Day Of Sex Scenes With Ben Affleck


Sienna Miller Ben Affleck

Any movie star will tell you that the most awkward and potentially embarrassing aspect of their job is filming sex scenes.

Trying to remain cool and professional in a cramped room, half-naked with your colleagues and in front of dozens of crew members, cameras and lights… enough to make even the steeliest of nerves falter.

However, Sienna Miller reckons there’s one way to cure this – if both actors approach it with a sense of humour. She was cast opposite Ben Affleck in Live By Night, playing the Irish moll Emma Gould to Affleck’s gangster Joe Coughlin, and spoke at the red carpet premiere about having to film sex scenes for a whole DAY.

What Does 'Live By Night' Actually Mean? Ben Affleck Explains...


Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck's latest directorial venture is a gangster thriller based on the 2012 novel 'Live By Night' by Dennis Lehane. It's all about a man who decides that he isn't going to live by anyone else's rules anymore and decides to take on a mob boss with the help of the latter's girlfriend.

Live By NightBen Affleck directs and stars in 'Live By Night'

'Joe Coughlin starts off as a guy who goes to the First World War as a believer [but] he becomes very disillusioned after that war, it was purposeless really', Ben explained. '[He] decides he's not going to take orders from anybody and he's going to become an outlaw. So he takes up a life as an outlaw and lives that way, living by night, for a period of time.'

Zoe Saldana Thinks 'Live By Night' Is Her Best Performance Since 'Avatar'


Zoe Saldana Ben Affleck

Zoe Saldana has opened up about her experiences working with Ben Affleck on his latest directorial venture 'Live By Night'; a gangster thriller in which he also stars set in the 1920s; and it's the best performance she reckons she's given in years. 

Live By NightZoe Saldana stars alongside Ben Affleck in 'Live By Night'

According to Zoe Saldana, not all directors enjoy the process of working with actors. It might sound crazy, but this can really affect how an actor performs on set. Zoe didn't have to worry about that though because Ben Affleck was super understanding - given that he's an actor first.

The Accountant Review

OK

While this slick dramatic thriller plays with some intriguing ideas and themes, it never actually breaks the surface, relying on silly plotting and simplistic moralising. It also uses autism as little more than a plot point. Still, it's sharply shot and edited to create plenty of interest, with comical asides and some intense action. So it's entertaining even if it's both preposterous and shallow.

It centres on Christian (Ben Affleck), a mild-mannered autistic accountant with a big secret: he's not only cooking the books for top gangsters around the world, but he's also an efficient killer. In his day job, he's hired by Lamar (John Lithgow) and his sister Rita (Smart) to locate an anomaly in their robotics company's books. Working with company accountant Dana (Anna Kendrick), Christian crunches the numbers and finds more than anyone expected. Meanwhile, Federal Agent Ray (J.K. Simmons) wants catch this mythical mob accountant-killer before he retires, so he coerces analyst Marybeth (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) into tracking him down. But just as they close in on Christian, so does hyperactive hitman Brax (Jon Bernthal).

The script by Bill Dubuque (The Judge) never even remotely holds water. Christian's autism provides some intriguing flashbacks, which build throughout the movie to a climactic moment, as his militaristic father cruelly treats his condition by sending him to Karate Kid-style training in Indonesia with his silently annoyed little brother. Where a real autistic child would revert into the horror of all of that, Christian emerges as adeptly skilled at engaging with everyone he meets and also able to fight more efficiently than experienced military commandos, whom he kills by the dozen as Brax and his army surround him. No, it makes absolutely no sense, but as a movie it's a rather amusing waste of time.

Drunk Or Furious? Ben Affleck In Red-Faced Rant About 'Deflategate'


Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck is officially not someone we ever want to argue with, especially when it comes to American football. The 'Batman v Superman' star launched a slurred, expletive-laden, unsmiling rant about Deflategate in an appearance on the HBO talk show 'Any Given Wednesday with Bill Simmons' yesterday (June 22nd 2016) that was so bizarre, it left viewers worrying about his mental health.

Ben AffleckBen Affleck really has a problem with deflategate

We've all done it; found that one issue that really grinds our gears and somehow managed to complain about it at the tops of our lungs for a solid ten minutes to a usually disinterested party, and Ben Affleck has proved he's just like the rest of us when it comes to matters he's passionate about.

Ben Affleck Henry Cavill

'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' finally made its New York premiere yesterday (March 20th 2016) as fans gear up for the excitement of its theatrical debut on Friday. The cast and crew of the hugely anticipated DC crossover movie were all over the red carpet, along with a few special guests and the cast of pre-Batman TV series 'Gotham'.

Gal Godot, Amy Adams and Holly Hunter looked stunning in their premiere gowns as they joined male co-stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Jesse Eisenberg at the event.

Jennifer Garner Ben Affleck

Ever since they announced their divorce back at the end of June this year, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have been spotted together in public putting up a united front for the sake of their three children. They have kept their wedding rings on during these family outings and have even been living on the same property together, albeit apparently in different buildings.

However, a source close to the family has told People magazine on Thursday (August 27th) that Garner is now having second thoughts about their living arrangements. “Jen will always make sure that Ben spends as much time with the kids as he wants, but she is rethinking their living situation. She can't stand the situation Ben has put her and the kids in.”

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice - Comic Con Trailer


Clark Kent is a reporter for the Daily Planet in his everyday life, but a much hated alien powerhouse beneath the earthly guise. As Superman he has the power to destroy the world and, even though he would never dream of it, the world wants him gone. Even his efforts to become the ultimate hero go unappreciated, in particular by his Gotham rival Bruce Wayne; a billionaire vigilante known as Batman by night. He believes Superman is to blame for all the horror the Earth has been faced with, and vows to take him despite his limited abilities. It isn't long before the two are forced to unite, however, in order to protect the citizens of Earth from a real threat that could prove to thrust the planet into oblivion.

Jesse Eisenberg Likens Comic-Con To "Genocide"


Jesse Eisenberg Ben Affleck Henry Cavill Robert Pattinson Jeremy Irons Holly Hunter

Jesse Eisenberg apparently didn’t enjoy being at Comic-Con, likening his experience at the massive convention to “some kind of genocide”. We know the crowds can be a little forceful, but seriously?

Giving a reaction to this year’s annual sci-fi and comic fest to the Associated Press on Monday (July 13th), the actor made the somewhat questionable remarks. “It is like being screamed at by thousands of people,” he reflected, “I don’t know what the experience is throughout history, probably some kind of genocide. I can’t think of anything that’s equivalent.”

Zack Snyder is returning with the sequel to 2013's Superman adventure 'Man Of Steel', and it's our first taste of The Justice League as they hit theaters for the first time. While the plot remains unknown, we can gather that the world has become disillusioned with Clark Kent (Henry Cavill); mistrusting of him given humanity's history with power and corruption, and fearful that their faiths are being questioned.

As far as publicity goes, the leaked Batman vs. Superman trailer may have worked in the movie’s favour. Sure, the early release meant it sort of clashed with the first look at Star Wars: Episode VII, but then this probably means that the superhero showdown will get an extra day of hype, once the actual, legit trailer drops/is released by the studio for real.

The shaky, second-hand recording of the trailer was only on YouTube for minutes, before being taken down, but it was enough to generate pages and pages of coverage, because, you know, content is kind of like gold for entertainment writers.
