The Gambler

"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:

Watch the first red band trailer for The Gambler with Mark Wahlberg right here.

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.

    This looks really good.
    Wahlberg needs to get some of his brothers' hamburgers soon. // In a seriousness, this look like another super performance from Mark.

    I must say, second trailer got me hooked up. This looks better than previous one...
  • Goodfella
    Gimme Shelter is being used way too much these days, worked for Goodfellas and some others but come on, they should have used something else.

    Looks good! Now, maybe it is just me but did that trailer just show a bit too much? It felt like it!
