Trailer for Runner, Runner (2013)

Runner, Runner Poster

Runner, Runner (2013)

Runner, Runner is about a college student (Justin Timberlake) who desperately needs money to pay his tuition, so he turns to online gambling.  He loses and thinks that he has been cheated, so he tracks down the man in Costa Rica who he thinks is responsible for cheating him (Ben Affleck).  Eventually the cheated is working for the cheater until the FBI closes in.  Now it’s time for the student to become the teacher.

The rest of the notable cast includes Gemma Arterton, Anthony Mackie, David Costabile, Diana Laura, Laurence Mason, Louis Lombardi, and Sam Upton.

The film is written by Brian Koppelman and David LevienBrad Furman directs.

Affleck appears like he plays a deceitful bad guy for a change.  Looks interesting enough.  Timberlake is 32 years old, but still playing a college kid.  He will probably still pull it off.

After watching the preview, I’m sold.  It looks pretty good.

The film is set to release on 10/4/13.
