First full trailer for online gambling pic Runner Runner with Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck

The first full trailer for RUNNER RUNNER has dropped (after being teased yesterday), featuring all the intrigue, suspense, and danger that you'd come to expect from offshore online gambling. The thriller comes from director Brad Fuhrman (THE LINCOLN LAWYER) and stars Justin Timberlake as a grad student struggling to pay his tuition who gets embroiled in a gambling kingpin's world of wealth, excess, and murder. The real treat here is Ben Affleck playing the bad guy. He's been a solid leading man in most of his films, so it's cool to see him cut loose and "evil it up" a bit. The film co-stars rising stars Anthony Mackie and Gemma Arterton as well, so there's plenty of incentive to gamble on this one.

The House always wins:

Here's the synopsis:

Princeton grad student Richie, believing he’s been swindled, travels to Costa Rica to confront online gambling tycoon Ivan Block. 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.

RUNNER RUNNER is set to debut on September 27, 2013.

A little Gemma Arterton never hurt anyone, eh?

Extra Tidbit: What other leading man actor would you like to see play a bad guy? I'm looking forward to Brad Pitt's turn in Ridley Scott's The Counselor later this year.
