Ben Affleck Lives Up To The Hype In First Gone Girl Trailer

Apr 15, 2014 10:15 AM


Ben Affleck may be gearing up for Batman, but this is the movie of his that we're most excited to see!!

The first trailer for Gone Girl has hit the web, and Ben stars as Nick Dunne, whose wife Amy goes missing on their fifth wedding anniversary. While Nick is the prime suspect, not everything is what it seems, and there are all sorts of twists and turns in the plot.

The trailer for the big screen adaptation of Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel is set to Elvis Costello's cover of the song "She," and if you've read the book, you'll be pleased to see several key scenes come to life in this clip. (You know, his creepy grin at the press conference, the panties at his office...)

"I don’t want to give away too much, because if you know the book, you know that there are set of reveals that you would want to maintain the integrity of," Ben told Entertainment Weekly the other day. "But I will say that Gillian adapted it and I think it’s very, very faithful to her book. If you read the book and liked it, you will definitely like the movie."

Neil Patrick Harris, Emily Ratajkowski and Tyler Perry also star in the David Fincher-directed film, which hits theaters on October 3.




Ben Affleck Hits The Gym To Beef Up For Batman Vs. Superman

Apr 11, 2014 02:12 PM

Ben Affleck always looks good, but his bod is going to get even more shredded over the next few weeks!

Ben has been prepping for his role in the new Batman flick by pumping iron and working out with Rehan Jalali, who got the sexy star in tip top shape for his role in The Town back in 2010. It's not like Ben is parading around in a tank top, but we can definitely tell that his biceps have gotten significantly beefier.

So when does Ben start shooting? Wife Jennifer Garner chatted with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday and revealed that her hubby is leaving her behind this weekend! “I get home Friday, and then, he leaves that day for Batman.” Jen didn't say that Ben was heading to Detroit, but several sites are reporting that as a filming location, and the Israeli website Ynet reports that new Wonder Woman Gal Gadot has already left for Michigan.

But when's he coming home? We're going to start having serious withdrawals...




Ben Affleck Flexes His Hands-On Daddy Muscles

Trying to prove a point, are we?!

Ben Affleck took daughter Seraphina to breakfast at the Brentwood Country Mart this morning, and it seems the A-list actor is enjoying being on daddy duty while wife Jen Garner works!

Speaking of Jen G, the actress made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night and chatted all about the difference between being mom and being dad in their household.

"We are divided down a very mom-dad[line]. If it has to do with making food, or homework, or anything that has to do with actually functioning… That's a Mom thing. Sorry, it's true. Then, coming in just as you're getting them to bed and picking them up by their heels and swinging them around, that's a Dad thing. Anything fun, that is Ben," she joked to the talk show host.

It looks like the Argo star is handling the kids pretty well by himself!




Ben Affleck And His Adorable Son Samuel Are Twinsies

Ben Affleck went to Brentwood Country Mart with Seraphina and Samuel bright and early on Wednesday morning, and we don't know who's cuter -- Ben or his darling little boy! And at first we thought Sam looked more like his mom, but after seeing these pics of the two so close together, the tiny tot totes has his dad's almond-shaped eyes!

Wife Jennifer Garner is busy promoting Draft Day, so it looks like the Gone Girl star is on daddy duty for the next few days. And speaking of that, when are we going to get our first peek at Ben as Nick Dunne? Ever since we found out that Ben was playing the lead, we've been kinda obsessed with any tidbit of news about the flick. In case you didn't know, it's the big screen adaptation of Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel which is about a woman who mysteriously disappears on the day of her wedding anniversary. Of course, Ben's character is the police's main suspect, but not everything is what it seems...

A few lucky folks at CinemaCon in Vegas saw the trailer late last month, and apparently there's a few fight scenes with Nick and wife Amy (Rosamund Pike), we see cops finding a pair of underwear at Nick's office, and finally, towards the end of the trailer, there's a shot of what looks like Amy's body underwater.

We have a feeling we'll be seeing the trailer any day now ... and we can't wait!




Jennifer Garner Supports Jimmy Kimmel, Despite His "Affair" With Husband Ben Affleck

It looks like there's no bad blood between Jennifer Garner and Jimmy Kimmel, who used to be "f**king Ben Affleck."

The actress wore a grey Jimmy Kimmel Live jacket on an outing with her husband and children Seraphina and Samuel. The trio headed to the Brentwood Country Mart in Los Angeles on Thursday for coffee and pastries.

While Ben held onto his food and drink, Jen carried their son with one arm and placed the other on their daughter's shoulder to guide her to their car. The couple's oldest child, Violet, didn't accompany them to the store.

Jennifer was completely dressed down in sweats and sneakers and Ben was slightly more dressed up, albeit still casual, in a white tee, jeans and knit jacket.

Jen was a good sport about Ben and Jimmy's ongoing fictional romance, which was the topic of several hilarious skits on Jimmy Kimmel Live. She even appeared in bed with the two men in one of the popular videos, which also bashed Ben's best friend Matt Damon.

As Ben spent quality time with his family in L.A., Fox showed the first footage of his new drama from director David Fincher, Gone Girl, at CinemaCon on Thursday in Las Vegas.

The family will move to Detroit this summer when Ben begins filming Zack Snyder's Superman-Batman movie.




Ben Affleck And Jennifer Garner Have A Romantic Lunch Date

Well, maybe it wasn't that romantic, but judging by the smiles on their faces, the happily married couple certainly had a good time catching up!

Ben cruised around in his 1966 Chevelle SS 396 while Jen opted to ride her mom SUV, but forget his sweet vintage ride -- we can't stop staring at his bulked up physique! So what exactly has he been doing to get so beefy?

Turns out, he's been working out with Rehan Jalali, who got him in tip top shape for his role in The Town. We'll NEVER forget Ben's pull-up scene in that movie ... ooh la la! (If you don't know what we're talking about, please do a Google image search for "Ben Affleck pull up The Town" ASAP.) The other day Jalali tweeted, "Quick Update: Met up w/Batman and Operation Biggest/Leanest/Baddest Batman Eva is on schedule! #DarkKnight."

He may be the hottest Batman ever, but will be the best? Remember, he's basically competing against Val Kilmer, Michael Keaton, George Clooney and Christian Bale ... that's a pretty tough crowd!

This is one bromance that shows no signs of slowing down.

With Ben Affleck's wife Jennifer Garner in the Big Apple on business, Ben and Matt Damon spent quality time together on Thursday. How do you like them apples?

The dynamic duo bonded over lunch at Hollywood's Katsuya restaurant. Now that awards season has winded down, the best friends are probably back to work on their CBS sitcom More Time With Family. They will executive produce the show, which stars How I Met Your Mother alum Alyson Hannigan.

The pair is also reportedly working on a biographical film about infamous Irish mobster James Joseph “Whitey” Bulger Jr. Although it hasn't been confirmed yet, Ben will likely direct the drama, while Matt will star as Whitey Bulger (the inspiration for Jack Nicholson’s character in his other movie, The Departed).

They most recently teamed up to shoot a promotional video for their charities Eastern Congo Initiative and Water.org. They take cheap shots at each other in the hilarious vid that's sure to leave you in stitches.




Ben Affleck And Jennifer Garner Hold Hands After A Coffee Date

By Hollywood standards they may qualify as an old married couple (they tied the knot in 2005), but they still have that spark!

On Tuesday Ben Affleck and Jennifer got coffee in Los Angeles, and the two held hands as they walked back to their car. But when it comes to being sweet with the ladies, it doesn't just extend to his wifey!

Last week Ben reportedly left a waitress at a coffee shop in Santa Monica a $90 tip when he bought a beverage and didn't have anything less than a one hundred dollar bill.

"The clerk told him it was so early that she didn't have enough change in the register and could he wait while she went to the back office safe. But Ben told her, 'Don't bother - you keep the change,'" according to E! Online. "She balked at first, but when Ben insisted, she said, 'Wow, that is so nice of you! My mom's visiting form Winsconsin, and I'll take her out to dinner with this.'" Awww!
