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 Ending Explained: From A New Point Of View

Ridley Scott is back in action with "The Last Duel," his historical epic based on the non-fiction book by Eric Jager. The film follows three specific characters: Jean de Carrouges (Matt Damon), Marguerite de Carrouges (Jodie Comer), and Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver), all living in France in the 1300s. Jean de Carrouges and Jacques Le Gris entered into the last officially recognized "judicial duel" fought in France.

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. Before we see the scandalous real-life story of House of Gucci, Scott has another story to tell based on true events. The Last Duel is a historical drama that follows the last legally sanctioned duel in France’s history as Marguerite de Carrouges (Jodie Comer) claims to have been raped by Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver). Her husband, Jean de Carrouges (Matt Damon), challenges Le Gris to ...

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 Multiple Endings Of Blade Runner Explained

Based on Philip K. Dick's beloved sci-fi novella "Do Android's Dream of Electric Sheep?", Ridley Scott's landmark 1982 science fiction film "Blade Runner" has become a cultural touchstone since bombing at the box office when it was first released nearly four decades ago. Thanks to home video and alternate versions released in 1992 and 2007, the movie has had a far greater longevity than some of its contemporaries, and is now considered in the same realm as "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "Star Wars"...

Ridley Scott Doesn't Think That Alien TV Series Will Be As Good As His Movies, Sorry

Once a filmmaker reaches a certain point in this industry, they get the right to voice whatever creative opinion they want about whatever topic they choose to. Martin Scorsese is allowed to pen longform essays decrying the current state of the industry for as long as he needs to make that point, Steven Spielberg can wax poetic about the future of the theatrical experience despite our present circumstances, and Ridley Scott is simply going to speak his mind and publicly trash talk other projects ...

The Last Duel Could've Featured A Matt Damon/Ben Affleck Kiss, But Ridley Scott Cut It

You've heard of Batfleck and Bennifer, but what about Mattfleck? Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are set to reunite onscreen this Friday in Ridley Scott's "The Last Duel," and in another life, it seems we could have seen their characters kissing.Affleck and Damon go back a long way, having first met and studied drama together back in high school. Though they appeared in other films together pre-1997, they had their big breakout that year in "Good Will Hunting," which they starred in and co-wrote and ...

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...

No Time To Die Proves Bond (Still) Doesn't Depend On America

Daniel Craig's fifth and final "James Bond" flick "No Time to Die" finally arrived in theaters in North America over the weekend, just shy of six years after "Spectre" initially debuted. Bond fans did, indeed, turn up, with the movie setting a record for Thursday previews at the box office. But by Monday morning, the weekend total fell on the lower side of expectations. Good, not great. A little unexciting, all things considered. Even so, there is an important lesson or two to be learned from th...

Why Joss Whedon's Alien 5 Never Happened (& What It Would've Looked Like)

15 Movies To Watch If You Loved The Many Saints Of Newark

Tony Soprano feels about the same we remember him, but his presence in "The Many Saints of Newark" cuts differently. His looming presence is gone, replaced with a younger and more unsure Tony. You have to pay attention to the slight tilt of the head and his distinctive slouch to see the late James Gandolfini in his son, the young Michael Gandolfini, who takes over as our window into the world of the foundational TV series "The Sopranos".At the time, that great, important show seemed like an enti...

Denis Villeneuve Thought Blade Runner 2049 Could've Ended His Career

The word behind the scenes even while Denis Villeneuve was making the 2017 sequel "Blade Runner 2049" was that Warner Bros. Pictures knew they didn't have a blockbuster on their hands, but were putting a lot of muscle behind the project because they believed in him as a filmmaker. In other words, every once in a while a studio will deliberately set a pile of money on fire and then stand next to a working fire hose without ever turning it on because they want to foster talent they feel will event...

The 15 Best '70s Horror Movies Ranked

The '70s was a decade marked by social and political upheaval, including the Nixon and the Watergate scandal, the Vietnam War and the antiwar movement, the fight for women's liberation and civil rights, and a conservative backlash to the freewheeling counterculture that began in the '60s. With so much happening on the cultural front, it's no wonder that the '70s was a peak era for cinema, and an incredible decade for horror movies. The '70s saw a slew of maverick directors forging what are still...

The 10 Scariest Scenes From The Alien Franchise

Ridley Scott's "Alien" is a profound, seminal piece of science fiction and horror. In space, no one can truly hear you scream (per the first movie's official tagline), though just because it's unheard, it doesn't mean it's not there. With a profound scope, unmatched awe, gorgeous visuals, and bonafide body horror, the series is operatic, high-concept horror -- basically, a haunted house series set in space. With talented directors at the helm, the Alien series offers visions of a horrific future...

Gladiator 2 Will Be 'Ready To Go' After Ridley Scott's Next Movie, Apparently

What we do in life echoes in eternity, and director Ridley Scott is making sure that he crams as much into his life as humanly possible. The 83-year-old filmmaker has two major movies coming out this year ("House of Gucci" and "The Last Duel") and a Napoleon-centric drama called "Kitbag" lined up to film next. But he's not slowing down: after "Kitbag," Scott is going to travel back to the Roman Empire to direct a sequel to "Gladiator" that's been more than twenty years in the making.He's been te...

14 Sequels That Truly Didn't Need To Happen

As Benjamin Franklin might have said, if he had witnessed the rise and continued growth of modern cinema, "Nothing is certain but death and taxes. And that most movies, if they make a reasonable profit, will get sequels whether they need one or not."Anachronistic Ben Franklin has it spot on. Hefty profits can magically transform the most standalone and self-contained movies into a trilogy, tetralogy, or worse. We have proof. Some of the films on this list are completely unnecessary -- they were ...

A Surprisingly Wholesome Conversation With The Minds Behind A24's Lamb [Fantastic Fest]

As you'd expect from a horror movie released by A24, "Lamb" is bleak, unsettling, and designed to leave audiences wondering what the hell they just watched. But it's also surprisingly funny, and somehow, frequently adorable. If you speak to the folks who made it, this combination starts to make sense. "Lamb" stars Noomi Rapace and Hilmir Snær Guðnason as a couple living on a remote Icelandic farm, tending to sheep and grappling with a recent tragedy. Then, a miracle: one of their sheep gives bir...
