After months of speculation that Ben Affleck has rekindled his relationship with ex-fiancee Jennifer Lopez, the couple made it official that Bennifer are on again — by appearing together at the Venice Film Festival on Friday (Sept 10).

Affleck and Lopez showed up at the world premiere of Affleck’s new historical film The Last Duel. Affleck’s co-stars Matt Damon and Jodie Comer and the film’s director Ridley Scott were also present on the red carpet.

According to reports, Bennifer arrived at Venice airport on Thursday before making their way to the city in a vaporetto taxi (aka a waterbus).

Affleck and Lopez were previously engaged in 2002 but postponed their wedding just days before the ceremony in 2003. They eventually split in 2004. They started dating again a few months ago, shortly after JLo’s breakup with Alex Rodriguez in April. 

The Last Duel event marked the pair’s first public appearance since their reunion.

Set in 14th century France, The Last Duel centres on an accusation by Marguerite de Carrouges (Comer), the wife of Jean de Carrouges (Damon), that Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver) sexually assaulted her. Affleck plays Count Pierre d’Alencon, who’s caught in the medieval #MeToo mess that’s ultimately settled in a duel to the death.

The Last Duel is slated to open in Singapore cinemas on Oct 14.
