Fuckin' cock-suckin bastard censors. I wanna see Gone Baby Gone. So what if, shock, horror, something similar has happened somewhere in the friggin' world. How pathetic is that!? Christ, the sooner the better the pricks who come up with these dozy ideas piss off.
This is good news at first glance though about Afleck's next. It's nice to see more Noir type crime being made. And is it me or is Afleck lookin a little 'Tony Stark' in that pic?...

fucking McCanns, it's not ok to watch this movie, but it's ok for them to sell the film rights for their own movie. That's fucking disguisting

''You still can’t see Ben Affleck’s directorial debut''. Really? That's sick. It been in theaters here for ages. (Heck, the whole Joran van der Sloot hype hasn't stopped any teendrama here either).

It was Affleck himself that pulled the film.

I had to stop for a second there until I spotted its the crime novel by Marcus Sakey as opposed to the simply superb fantasy novel by Joe Abercrombie. Good luck to him but if it had been abercrombies , one of the grittiest, nastiest fantasy worlds of recent times getting the Affleck treatment ... well it isn't so thats fine. But the Bloody-Nine deserves on screen treatment.

I've seen gone, baby gone and have to say that it is one of the best films of the year. Casey Affleck's performance is nothing short of revelatory. If you thought he was good in Jesse James then check this out when and (if) it's ever released. Also stop having a go at the McCanns, I have nothing but sympathy for them. It's not their fault that our media censors are hysterical, hypocritical morons. Also not sure if they have watched said film as it bears hardly any similarity to their case apart from a kidnapping (assuming thats what has happened) Next thing you know they will be withdrawing films like ransom (including the glenn ford version) and banning repeats of the red hand gang...

A couple of responses to posts above:

UK/Ireland release date is now set for 6th June 2008 (although that's no doubt still subject to change)

Affleck didn't pull the release, Buena Vista International did, but Affleck has said he supports and understands the decision. The poor lad hasn't really got much choice, does he?

Weird that this news broke today - I've just finished previewing Gone Baby Gone myself!

Saw it a few months ago, both Afflecks did a very good job.

so its supposed to be getting a UK release soon? Good, yes i could get the region 1 dvd but it isn't the same as seeing it on the big screen.

I do think its bloody stupid though, a girl dissapears and we can't see the film? WHy it happens all the bloody time. There's a war in Iraq, so why are there so many iraq themed movies at the moment? We can have films about september 11th one of the most horrific things in history but one girl goes missing (something that happens everyday and was only so sensationalized because it was a slow news day) and we can't see a film with a slightly similar idea? I call bulshit.

I think they should rename Ben's Gone Baby Gone to the above : )

After the Bennifer Lopez affair - most studios have avoided casting Ben Affleck (to think he was once an A List star!). I'm not surprise that he is trying to develop a directing career.

I couldn't take him seriously in Smoking Aces - cos of the baggage he brought to the role (I was giggling at him for All the Wrong reasons).

I hear nothing but good things about Gone Baby Gone so I look forward to seeing it. Ben seems to be coming back which is great as he got lost during the Bennifer/Gigli furore and he made that superb George Reeves biopic.What would be great was if he teamed up with Matt Damon and co-wrote a script with Damon starring and Affleck directing.

Because i've got a bloody region 2 player. No point having the disk if you can't play it. And im not going into that pissing about to convert it.

I think that says more about you, Makman, than Ben's acting that you couldn't take him seriously because of his high-profile relationship.  I always try and   view personal and professional life separately and i'm a girl!

I for one am glad to see him on form in Hollywoodland and his career obviously hasn't gone anywhere judging by the posts here and positive reviews of his directorial debut.

He was excellent in Hollywoodland. A very powerful and melancholy performance. If anything, it's Jennifer bloody Lopez who should keep away from our cinemas. God, she's crap. Even in Out Of Sight. And as for Anaconda... Shudder.
