Jodie Comer, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon at The Last Duel photocall

Jodie Comer, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon looked ready for action as they prepared for the premiere of their new movie The Last Duel on Friday. 

The Killing Eve star, 28, was a vision in an elegant textured top with a black skirt as she attended the photocall via water taxi with the Hollywood heavyweights, aged 48 and 50 respectively, at the Venice Film Festival. 

The Ridley Scott-directed historic epic is set to premiere at the 73rd annual event and just hours before the red carpet spectacular, the famous trio attended the glitzy photocall in front of press from all over the world. 

Cheers! Jodie Comer, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon looked ready for action as they prepared for the premiere of their new movie The Last Duel on Friday

Jodie looked sensational in her textured white crop top with black piping which she paired with a high-waisted black skirt which clung to her figure to perfection. 

Ben was larking around with his co-stars shortly after he arrived on the arm of his on-again girlfriend Jennifer Lopez with whom he reunited earlier this year 17 years after originally breaking off their romance. 

Matt looked sleek in a grey suit with a crew-neck black top underneath. They were joined by Ridley and Nicole Holofcener at the photocall to tease the event later in the evening. 

Set in 14th century France, the film follows Jodie’s character Marguerite de Carrouges after she is sexually assaulted by her husband’s best friend. Her husband Jean (Matt) challenges his friend Jacques (Adam Driver) to a state-sponsored trail by combat after she confides in him.

Oh the glam! She flashed a hint of her waist from beneath her elegant crop top

They believe the battle, the last lawful duel in French history, will determine by God’s hand whether or not Marguerite is telling the truth. Ben plays King Charles VI in the film. 

In a still from the film, Jodie is seen on horseback wearing black robes with a high collar and a dark brown hood. The star also sported a dark grey patterned bodice while her locks appear to be dyed blonde for the role.

Matt sports metal armour and a bloodied face in his still as his character takes part in a battle scene.

The film is told from the perspectives of each of the three characters, with Jodie telling Variety the movie will challenge audiences pre-conceived ideas of the role women had in society during that period.

She said: ‘I think, for me, what was the most interesting [thing] about this script, first and foremost, was the opportunity to give this woman a voice.

Aside from her movie career, Jodie has admitted she’s struggling to say goodbye to Killing Eve as the show draws to a close. The Emmy Award-winner has played Villanelle since 2018 – who becomes obssessed with Sandra Oh’s MI6 agent Eve.

Speaking to NBC, she admitted she has been feeling emotional about the show coming to an end saying: ‘I had a little moment where I saw the clapperboard and I had a kind of lump in my throat.’

When asked if she’s already mourning the loss of her iconic character, Jodie answered: ‘Not yet, because I cannot let myself. I have two months left [of filming]

‘It is like a marathon,’ she explained. ‘If you are at the start you cannot think of the finish.’  

‘Not that I have ever run a marathon,’ the actress quipped, before teasing the plot line of Killing Eve’s final season.

‘We have definitely got off to an exciting start,’ Jodie said. ‘I think now, because we know it’s the final season they are definitely pushing bounadies especially with Villanelle.’

She continued: ‘Where we open with her [Villanelle] is totally bonkers and brilliant. I hope people finally enjoy it when it hits the screen.’ 

It was revealed in March that Killing Eve’s much-anticipated fourth season will air on television next year.

It comes after the season three finale drove viewers wild when Villanelle and Eve stood back-to-back on London Bridge and agreed to walk away and ‘never look back’.

However, in the final moments of the episode both Villanelle and Eve turned back around to look at each other – suggesting the two characters might end up together.
