Boston Welcomes Ben Affleck Back To ‘The Town’

Talk about a homecoming! Last night Ben Affleck’s new film The Town premiered at Boston’s Own Fenway Park!

“I don’t know what to make of it. I’m either excited or panicked,” the actor said Tuesday night at the park, the first time a movie has ever been shown there.

The cast, including Jon Hamm, Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Hall, Blake Lively, and Chris Cooper were excited to be back in Boston and walked the red carpet in front of the stands.

“I had never been to Boston before filming this movie, but it’s such a wonderfully historic, beautiful city,” Hamm said.

Renner and Lively said they loved the time they spent filming in Boston, and particularly liked the food. Lively was the last one to walk the red carpet and appeared with her boyfriend Penn Badgley.

And of course, hidden under a Sox cap and arriving after the press line, Boston-bred Matt Damon arrived to support his childhood friend and take in the film! Now that’s what friends are for!
