Before Ben Affleck gambles with playing Batman in “Superman Vs. Batman” he’ll be rolling the dice a whole different way with this fall’s “Runner Runner.” The slick little thriller has been keeping a low profile but with the release now just over a month away, things are starting to heat up.
MTV VMA Video Vanguard Award-winner Justin Timberlake (he’s a legend) and Gemma Arterton co-star in the movie that follows a smart but not particularly well off college student, who aims to pay off his loans by beating the system at online poker. He gets duped and loses all of his money, and then when he flies to the tropical island where the game company is located, he winds up under the wing of the site’s boss, played by Affleck. But things don’t quite turn out so well. And in this clip we see Affleck put on a good face for Timberlake, but a meaner side eventually emerges.
Check it out below along with some clips and a couple posters for the movie. “Runner Runner” logs on October 4th.
