Live by Night is a gangster flick set in 1920s Boston, directed by Ben Affleck. Elle Fanning, Zoe Saldana, and Brendan Gleeson, have leading roles. See the trailer here. Opens in Australian cinemas on 26 January. If the stars align, I’ll post a review.
Affleck is certainly someone who doesn’t shy away from a challenge. Not only is he directing, he also wrote the screenplay, and has a starring role. I’d like to know what time management system he has going there.
Avatar: humanity has all but destroyed Earth in 2154 so we’ve set our sights on unspoilt Pandora, a distant moon-planet, where a human colony is trying to mine a valuable mineral, despite the resistance of the indigenous population.
Worth seeing for Pandora’s spectacularly rendered landscapes and ecosystem – especially after dark – by way of the film’s much talked about ground breaking 3D technology.
