Newly-reunited couple Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have arrived at Venice Film Festival. 

The A-listers were photographed stepping off a boat in the Italian city this afternoon, ahead of tomorrow night's premiere of Ridley Scott's The Last Duel. 

Affleck co-wrote the period drama with Matt Damon and both actors star in the film alongside Jodie Comer and Adam Driver. 

For their arrival, Affleck, 49, dressed casually in black jeans and a matching long-sleeved top with collar. 

Meanwhile Lopez, 52, showcased her sartorial prowess in a very chic ensemble: a £3300 white, lace shirt dress by Italian fashion house Valentino. She teamed the dress with a pair of black and white sunglasses.

It's unclear if Lopez will accompany Affleck to Friday night's screening. If she does, it will be the first time the couple's walked the red carpet together since 2003.

The couple may also attend Monday night's Met Gala in New York City together - arguably, the most high fashion red carpet event of the year. 

The couple were due to marry in 2003 but postponed their wedding before calling it off entirely. 

Following their break-up, they both married others: Affleck wed actor Jennifer Garner in 2005 after starting to date the previous year and went on to have three children together, Violet, Seraphina and Samuel. The marriage ended in 2018 after a separation period.
