This past Monday the stars of Warner Bros.' Live By Night hit the carpet outside the TCL Chinese Theater for the film's world premiere. 

Live By Night is a dramatic crime thriller starring Oscar winner Ben Affleck (Best Picture, Argo) as a gun-slinging rum runner in prohibition-era Florida. Affleck also wrote the screenplay, based on the best-selling novel by Dennis Lehane. It marks the second collaboration for the Boston natives, following the acclaimed drama Gone Baby Gone.
