We've got a new trailer for Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake's gambling drama, Runner Runner. Regardless of the films' star power, this movie could easily end up bombing at the box office. I love a good gambling movie, but this one looks like it's going to be pretty mediocre. It just looks like one of "those" movies.
Princeton grad student Richie (Justin Timberlake), believing he's been swindled, travels to Costa Rica to confront online gambling tycoon Ivan Block (Ben Affleck). 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.
The film was directed by Brad Furman and co-stars Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace) and Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker). It hits theaters on September 27th.
