Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck arrived in Venice on Thursday, ahead of Friday’s world premiere of Ridley Scott’s historical epic “The Last Duel.”
The couple landed at Venice airport before traveling to the city in a vaporetto taxi — a speedboat with the name “Confusion.” Their arrival puts to rest weeks of speculation around whether or not the couple would attend the film festival together and make their first major red carpet debut since reuniting.
Lopez and Affleck, who are together known as “Bennifer,” had been set to get married in 2003, but postponed their wedding before calling off their relationship. They started dating again a few months ago, after she separated from Alex Rodriguez in April, according to press reports.
Affleck stars in “The Last Duel” alongside Matt Damon, Adam Driver and Jodie Comer. The screenplay is by Nicole Holofcener, Affleck and Damon, based on the book by Eric Jager. The film is produced by Scott, Kevin J. Walsh, Jennifer Fox, Holofcener, Damon and Affleck.
“The Last Duel” is a tale of betrayal and vengeance set against the brutality of 14th century France. Based on actual events, the pic “unravels long-held assumptions about France’s last sanctioned duel between Jean de Carrouges and Jacques Le Gris, two friends turned bitter rivals,” according to press notes.
More to come.
