The Ben Affleck-directed The Town is getting a new look on Blu-Ray. Widely revered, Affleck not only directed, but starred in the bank heist thriller that firmly established him as a helmer with power. The film is being released on Blu-Ray in an Ultimate Collector’s Edition that features a never-before-seen ending.
There is much to treasure with this new release! The additional features, beyond the new ending, include an all-new 30-minute documentary The Town: A Director’s Journey, Affleck commentary on the regular theatrical version, the extended cut as well as the extended cut with an alternative ending.
There’s a bevy of collectibles included in The Town set that any fan of the movie must have. Included is a personal letter from Affleck, a 48-page making-of photo book, poster-size map of Charlestown with descriptions of each locale used in the film and most interestingly, the 15-page FBI report that Agent Adam Frawley (Mad Men star Jon Hamm) presents in the film.
The story of The Town is already well known. A couple of Boston boys form a gang and plan the ultimate heist -- robbing Fenway Park. The film also featured the stellar Jeremy Renner in a role that earned him an Academy Award nomination. It would also be the final role for iconic Irish actor Pete Postlethwaite.
The entire set retails for $49.99 and is available now. Check out the special Blu-Ray trailer below.
