After seeing the trailer for Ben Affleck’s ambitious thriller-romance THE TOWN (which you can check out further down, if you missed it before), it doesn’t really seem like the kind of movie that can be summarized in a standard “floating heads” kind of poster. Which is probably why this French poster for the movie is a little congested.
The movie, an adaptation of Chuck Hogan’s book “Prince of Thieves”, opens September 10th. The full synopsis: “Doug MacRay (Ben 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 (Rebecca 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.”
