Ben Affleck and Jeremy Renner bringing The Town to Blu-ray

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant

Warner Home Video has announced that the heist thriller THE TOWN, starring Ben Affleck, Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Hall and Blake Lively, will be available in stores on Blu-ray on December 17, 2010. The film will be available in a BD/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack and will include an extended cut of the film that has around 23 minutes of additional footage. The film is directed by Ben Affleck and was based on the novel entitled Prince of Thieves by Chuck Hogan. THE TOWN follows four friends that live in a town that is known for producing armed robbers and criminals each generation. When one of the friends starts to have feelings for one of their hostages the dynamic of the group changes. The film received good reviews and grossed just under $85 million dollars.

I’m happy Ben Affleck got this win, I’ve been a fan of his for years and was worried he wouldn’t live down the whole Bennifer and GIGLI stigma. Congratulations Mr. Affleck, I knew you could do it!  Special features for the film include:
