Watch: Mark Wahlberg Isn't Lucky in Second 'The Gambler' Trailer
"When someone needs that amount of money in cash, nothing's okay." After the first intense red band trailer for this winter's The Gambler debuted not too long ago, a much more informative green band trailer has arrived. This time we get more details on the trouble that Mark Wahlberg is in as a gambling addicted, college professor. Plus, we get some great interplay between him and the rest of the supporting cast which includes Jessica Lange as Wahlberg's mother, Brie Larson as the love interest, and John Goodman with Michael K. Williams as some men who want their money back. Though I could have done without yet another use of The Rolling Stones track "Gimme Shelter," this looks solid. Watch below!
Here's the latest trailer for Rupert Wyatt's The Gambler from Grantland:

The Gambler is directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Escapist) and written by William Monahan (The Departed, Edge of Darkness). The film follows a UCLA literature professor (Mark Wahlberg) with a gambling problem who runs afoul of gangsters, until borrowing from his girlfriend (Brie Larson) and mother (Jessica Lange) eventually gets the gangsters after the ones he loves, putting all of them in danger. John Goodman, Michael K. Williams and Richard Schiff also star in the film which Paramount Pictures has given a last-minute, awards season qualifying release on December 19th later this winter.
