Alongside the release of the film's first trailer via Yahoo! Movies today, Pine's paying a little lip service to his esteemed predecessors. Get More »

'The Town' Lines That Could Also Be Used in Affleck's Whitey Bulger Movie

Warner Bros. Warner Bros.

One of Ben Affleck's first I'm-a-serious-filmmaker-now-so-stop-making-fun-of-"Gigli"-already efforts was 2010's "The Town," a heisty movie with a few feels and lots of fun quotables.

Affleck co-wrote the scripts for both "The Town" and his directorial debut "Gone Baby Gone" alongside fellow Boston-lover-slash-apparent-crime-scene-aficionado Aaron Stockard — who, back then, was only barely IMDb-worthy for his production assistant status on "Good Will Hunting."

According to Deadline, this little dream team is now set up for a third go-round at the writer's table for Warner Bros.' Whitey Bulger pic (ya know, after he handles s**t in the Batcape for a while for the same studio). Get More »

The Batfleck finally speaks, Gotham!

Superman" project. Get More »

5 Reasons Kevin Smith Totally Supports the Batfleck

Ben Affleck and writer-director Kevin Smith go way, way back (it's almost Matt Damon status, ya'll) to the days of "Mallrats" and "Chasing Amy" and such. Affleck starred in a half dozen of the guy's movies, and Smith in turn helped produce the eventual Oscar-winning and career-jettisoning "Good Will Hunting." So, they're pretty old school bros.

And Kevin Smith's a super-geek when it comes to all things comic books, so of course he had some amazing things to say about the fact that his long-time pal will become the Batman for Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" sequel, tentatively referred to as "Batman Vs. Superman." To put it mildly, he was pretty excited about the news. Get More »

Matt Damon's been trying to emulate the moves of his best bro Ben Affleck for quite some time — no, not by donning a cape but rather by saddling up in a director's chair of his own.

The Damon, formerly a writer-actor type with some considerable successes, has finally locked down his opportunity to behind-the-lens it up on a project called "A Foreigner," the script for which was written by Oscar-grabbing "Argo" penman Chris Terrio. Get More »

Ding, ding, ding!

"Things that go together" is right-o. Buuuut that last pair hasn't been a thing for more than a decade, and we've got some bad news for those who were hoping to see 'em reunite as the Caped Crusader and his trusty sidekick. It ain't happening.

Some surnames are just more common than others. You know, Jones, Smith, Affleck. So standing out from the crowd when you have one of those names can be very difficult. Seriously, can you just imagine the confusion at school for those poor teachers who had to deal with yet another kid named Ben Affleck? Man, how could they tell them all apart?

And that — along with the release of Casey Affleck's new mood piece "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" — got us thinking: Just who is the greatest Affleck in the long history of Hollywood? Get More »
