The last time we saw a Ben Affleck movie, it was “Starring Ben Affleck” but “From the Director of Gone Baby Gone”. They liked his directing enough to sell the movie with his talent, but were too afraid to sell the movie with his name. Embarrassing. This one is better. This one’s all “From Ben Affleck, the Director of The Town”. And it’s right up front. Much classier.
On the flip side, they’ve apparently chosen to hide Ben Affleck’s face now. Look at all that beard. That’s a lot of beard. And Bryan Cranston is once again a chameleon. Halfway through the trailer before I’m like “Oh, hey, that’s Malcolm’s dad!”
