In Praise Of Ben Affleck's Scene-Stealing Performance In The Last Duel

You have to hand it to Ben Affleck: when he co-wrote "The Last Duel," the Ridley Scott-directed historical drama that just opened in theaters, he sneakily went ahead and wrote the best part for himself. Affleck, Boston's favorite son, King of Dunkin Donuts, and tabloid star at large, only has a minor role in "The Last Duel," but he makes every single one of his scenes count. And he looks like he's having fun in the process.Affleck plays Count Pierre d'Alençon, and while we see him briefly in the...

The Last Duel Review: A Gripping & Brutal Historical Drama

Ridley Scott, the master behind films such as Alien, Blade Runner, and The Martian, has two new movies in 2021.

The Last Duel Crew Share Their Ridley Scott Stories: 'He Doesn't Stop Until He Gets It' [Exclusive]

There are many reasons to look forward to "The Last Duel," ranging from the fact that it's a Ridley Scott movie and nothing more needs to be said (although I'm going to say more anyway, sorry!), to the current dearth of historical epics that used to be considered proven moneymakers and have made this film into a rarity, to the must-see appearances of both Matt Damon and Ben Affleck in medieval hair and makeup ... not to mention their significant contributions on the other side of the camera, as ...

The Fascinating True Story Behind The Wolf Of Wall Street

It's a well-known fact that Martin Scorsese's acclaimed "The Wolf of Wall Street," which received five Oscar nominations including one for Best Adapted Screenplay, is based on the memoir of Jordan Belfort, the stockbroker played by Leonardo DiCaprio. He's not what you would call a hero: in fact, the whole movie is arguably told from the villain's perspective.Terence Winter handled the writing chores, and he and Scorsese had already framed an entire HBO series, "Boardwalk Empire," around a gangst...

The 14 Greatest Heist Movies Of The 21st Century

As the past two decades have proved, the heist movie genre is as broad as they come. Real crimes can inspire fascinating biographical films, while current events allow filmmakers to explore relevant issues through perspectives of various criminals. Other heist films don't aim for plausibility at all, and many cross over with other genres, such as comedy, action, or science fiction.Just look at how popular franchises have incorporated heists into existing mythologies.

The Last Duel Screenwriters Worked To Strike A Balance Between Past And Present

When it came to writing "The Last Duel," the screenwriters had to find a way to remain both true to the era in which the film takes place while also making sure it was all accessible to a modern-audience. While "The Last Duel" is occasionally clumsy with how it handles the parallels with the film and our own modern times, the screenwriters still took care to approach these topics in ways that would resonate with current audiences. During a press conference that /Film attended, writers Nicole Hol...

Why The Entire Third Act Of The Last Duel Was Written By Nicole Holofcener

Ridley Scott's "The Last Duel" has a script with a very distinct three-act structure. That script, written by Nicole Holofcener, Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon, follows in the footsteps of "Rashomon," telling a story from three different perspectives -- knight Jean de Carrouges (Damon), his wife Marguerite (Jodie Comer), and de Carrouges' one time friend turned enemy Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver). This approach allows the film to present alternate versions of certain moments, creating a richer stor...

Why The Last Duel Is Matt Damon And Ben Affleck's First Script Together Since Good Will Hunting

"Good Will Hunting" helped launch Matt Damon and Ben Affleck into stardom, and won them a Best Original Screenplay Oscar in the process. But despite that success, the two haven't written a screenplay together in 25 years. That finally changed with "The Last Duel," the new Ridley Scott film Damon and Affleck wrote with Nicole Holofcener. Based on a true story, "The Last Duel" is set in France in the 1300s. Damon plays Jean de Carrouges, a knight who enters into a duel with his one-time friend Jac...

The upcoming DC Extended Universe film from director Matt Reeves (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) is the first to feature Pattinson's version of the iconic superhero.

George Clooney Says He Wont Play Batman In The Flash Because He Destroyed The Franchise

Both Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck are donning the cowl and taking up the Batman mantle once more for a turn in Andy Muschetti's "The Flash," but you won't be seeing George Clooney join them. The actor, who infamously played the caped crusader in Joel Schumacher's 1997 film "Batman and Robin," recently told Variety that he would not be involved, joking that he had "ruined the franchise."

The Batman Star Robert Pattinson Teases Lots Of 'Surprises' At DC FanDome

It might be hard to believe, but we're still trying to wrap our minds around the fact that it's been over a year since 2020's inaugural "DC FanDome" event that brought us our very first look at Matt Reeves' "The Batman" with its somber, "Se7en"-inspired trailer. To the dismay of fans and despite the end of filming earlier this year, WB has released nothing official in the time since, except perhaps the occasional tantalizing quote and tease.
