First Trailer: Ben Affleck’s “Live By Night”

Warner Bros. Pictures has premiered the official first trailer and poster for the Ben Affleck-directed “Live By Night,” an adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s 2012 prohibition era thriller novel which is part of his ‘Joe Coughlin’ series.

Affleck, Elle Fanning, Sienna Miller, Zoe Saldana, Chris Messina and Chris Cooper star in the film which is set in Boston 1926 and gives rise to an endless network of underground distilleries, speakeasies, gangsters, and corrupt cops.

Coughlin, the youngest son of a prominent Boston police captain, has long since turned his back on his strict and proper upbringing. Now in a career in the pay of the city’s most fearsome mobsters, Joe enjoys the notoriety of being an outlaw even with the dark side carrying a heavy price.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Davisson Killoran and Jennifer Todd are producing the film which opens January 13th.
