Check out the movie trailer for Ben Affleck’s directorial debut Gone, Baby, Gone, an adaptation of the Dennis Lehane (Mystic River) novel about two detectives in search of a 4 year old girl that has been kidnapped in Boston. The film stars Morgan Freeman, Ben’s brother Casey Affleck, Michelle Monaghan, Ed Harris and Robert “brother of Donnie and Mark” Wahlberg. Gone, Baby, Gone hits theaters on October 19th 2007, just in time for Award season.
I lived in Boston most of my life and have followed Affleck’s career since the beginning, so this is automatically on my top 10 must see upcoming films list. I’m actually pretty amazed at the cinematography as I thought this was being done on a much lower budget. It has a very Good Will Hunting feel to it. I’m also not surprised that the trailer doesn’t advertise that this is a film directed by Affleck (except on the name leaderboard trailer bookend). I’m excited. Check out the trailer after the jump.
