The stars of director Ben Affleck's new shot-in-Boston heist drama will attend the Sept. 14 screening at Fenway Park. Making official something we've already reported, Warner Bros. yesterday announced that "The Town'' will premiere at the ballpark, and the all-star cast, including Jeremy Renner, Blake Lively, Jon Hamm, Rebecca Hall, and Chris Cooper, will join Affleck for the special event in the outfield.
Warner Bros is probably going to erect a yooge movie screen in centerfield, on the hallowed ground where Red Sox legend Ryan Kalish has trod this season, and screen the film in front of a small crowd of Hollywood folk and local union guys. Coincidentally on the same night in New York, Jay-Z and Eminem will be blowing stuff up in their sold-out concert at Yankee Stadium. Advantage: rapping people.
