Ben Affleck directs and stars in another stirring crime thriller, “The Town.” “The Town” is about robbers and cops, friendship and betrayal, love and hope, and escaping a past that has no future. Opening in cinemas across the Philippines October 6th! “The Town” is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
In the film, Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck) is an unrepentant criminal, the de facto leader of a group of ruthless bank robbers who pride themselves in stealing what they want and getting out clean. With no real attachments, Doug never has to fear losing anyone close to him. But that all changed on the gang’s latest job, when they briefly took a hostage–bank manager, Claire Keesey (Rebecca Hall).
Ben Affleck made off with a bigger-than-expected haul at the weekend box office in North America on Sunday as his heist thriller “The Town” surprised observers with a strong No. 1 opening.
