Ben Affleck is one of the best recent directors. His three films all hold no less than a 94% Rotten Tomatoes score. His last epic, Argo won Best Picture at the 2013 Academy Awards. By the end of 2016 he’ll have appeared in four movies, namely Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Suicide Squad, The Accountant and Live by Night. The latter will receive a limited release to qualify for an Oscar run next year.

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Ben Affleck‘s next directorial effort, Live by Night. It is just pure awesomeness. Though it does make me wonder who would win between Joe Coughlin and Batman.

You can see the trailer below.

 

The film is set in the roaring `20s when Prohibition hasn’t stopped the flow of booze in an underground network of gangster-run speakeasies. The opportunity to gain power and money is there for any man with enough ambition and nerve and Joe Coughlin, the son of the Boston Police Superintendent, long ago turned his back on his strict upbringing for the spoils of being an outlaw. But even among criminals there are rules and Joe breaks a big one: crossing a powerful mob boss by stealing his money and his moll. The fiery affair ends in tragedy, setting Joe on a path of revenge, ambition, romance and betrayal that propels him out of Boston and up the ladder of Tampa’s steamy rum-running underworld.

Leonardo DiCaprio will produce the epic alongside Jennifer Davisson, under the Appian Way banner, with Ben Affleck and Jennifer Todd producing under Pearl Street films. Chris Brigham, Chay Carter and Dennis Lehane will serve as executive producers.

The film stars Ben Affleck, Elle Fanning (Maleficent), Chris Messina (Argo), Sienna Miller (American Sniper) Zoe Saldana (Guardians of the Galaxy), and Chris Cooper (Adaptation, The Town). The cast also includes Max Casella, J.D. Evermore , Remo Girone , Robert Glenister , Anthony Michael Hall , Matthew Maher, Miguel J. Pimentel, Chris Sullivan and Titus Welliver .

Live by Night will arrive in cinemas  on January 13, 2017.
