Justin Timberlake, Ben Affleck & Crocodiles in 'Runner Runner' Trailer
We've seen Ben Affleck save hostages from Tehran with a fake movie crew in Argo, rob banks in The Town and even put on red leather as Daredevil. But now he's becoming a big screen villain for the first time. Runner Runner is a new crime thriller from The Lincoln Lawyer director Brad Furman following a college student (Justin Timberlake) who gets caught up in the corrupt world of online gambling after he tracks down a site that cheated him out of a big poker win. Affleck plays the corrupt ring leader, and while he seems tame and chill at first, it's clear that he's crazy when he throws some guys into crocodile waters.
Here's the first trailer for Brad Furman's Runner Runner, originally from Yahoo:
Runner Runner is directed by Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer) and written by Brian Koppelman & David Levien (Ocean's 13, Runaway Jury) A businessman (Ben Affleck) with an offshore online gambling operation recruits curious, struggling college student Richie Furst (Justin Timberlake) to join his little world after he discovers the corrupt nature of his business. Promised a life of luxury, Richie takes the opportunity, but finds himself in trouble when the FBI turns him into an informant. Anthony Mackie, Gemma Arterton and Ben Schwartz also star in the film which Fox sends to theaters September 27th.
