“Tonight is the most important night of my professional life,” Affleck declared from the stage, amid making some self-deprecating references to previous projects which were not widely popular.

Judging by the premiere audience’s reaction, Affleck need not be worried about its reception – the film and its cast full of scene stealers received a rapturous ovation.

Damon called his role – and reunion with his “best friend” and longtime collaborator Affleck – “the greatest job I’ve ever had.”

Ben and I – from from the moment we read [Alex Convery’s] script to the last cut we made in the edit – it was just absolute joy.”

Davis – who Affleck called “the best actor I’ve ever seen” – spoke about what playing Jordan’s protective, business-savvy mother Deloris meant to her.

In a rather bold creative choice, Jordan himself isn’t directly shown in the film, which Affleck explained was an effort to avoid having an actor impersonate a larger-than-life living legend who audiences were already so familiar with.
