Academy Award® winner Ben Affleck (Gone Baby Gone) directs and stars in Warner Bros.’ The Town, a dramatic thriller about robbers and cops, friendship and betrayal, love and hope, and escaping a past that has no future.

The film also stars Rebecca Hall (Vicky Christina Barcelona), Jon Hamm (TV’s Mad Men), Oscar® nominee Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker), Blake Lively (TV’s Gossip Girl), Oscar® nominee Pete Postlethwaite (Inception), and Academy Award® winner Chris Cooper (Adaptation).

In the film, Doug MacRay (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 (Hall). Though they let her go unharmed, Claire is nervously aware that the robbers know her name… and where she lives. But she lets her guard down when she meets an unassuming and rather charming man named Doug….not realizing that he is the same man who only days earlier had terrorized her. The instant attraction between them gradually turns into a passionate romance that threatens to take them both down a dangerous, and potentially deadly, path.

The Town is produced by Academy Award® winner Graham King (The Departed) and Basil Iwanyk (Clash of the Titans) from a screenplay by Peter Craig and Ben Affleck & Aaron Stockard, based on the novel Prince of Thieves by Chuck Hogan. The executive producers are Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, William Fay and David Crockett, and Chay Carter served as co-producer.

The behind-the-scenes creative team was led by Oscar®-winning director of photography Robert Elswit (There Will Be Blood), production designer Sharon Seymour (Gone Baby Gone), Oscar®-nominated editor Dylan Tichenor (There Will Be Blood), and costume designer Susan Matheson (The Kingdom). The music is composed by Harry Gregson-Williams and David Buckley, who previously collaborated on Affleck’s Gone Baby Gone.

Opening soon across the Philippines, The Town is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
