A few days ago we shared one pretty cool featurette and new images with Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake, and today – time for a brand new (and much better) trailer for their upcoming Runner Runner movie, which is set to hit theaters next month. As you’re about to see, it was the perfect opportunity, the perfect prtnership, but also – the perfect setup! Head inside to see what we’re talking about…
But first, a little reminder: the whole thing comes from director Brad Furman, beside the above mentioned duo it also stars Gemma Arterton and Anthony Mackie, and as we mentioned at the beginning – the movie is set to open on October 4th, 2013.
Timberlake stars as a Princeton student Richie who is cheated out of his tuition money by playing online poker, and travels to Costa Rica to confront online gambling tycoon Ivan Block, played by Affleck.
Unfortunately (in this case) confronting means:
Richie is seduced by Block’s promise of immense wealth, until he learns the disturbing truth about his benefactor. When the FBI tries to coerce Richie to help bring down Block, Richie faces his biggest gamble ever: attempting to outmaneuver the two forces closing in on him.
Doesn’t look so bad, hope you agree?
