‘Runner, Runner’ Trailer: Ben Affleck Will Throw JT to the Crocs!

Subscribe to B98.5 on

The first trailer for gambling thriller ‘Runner, Runner,’ starring Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake, has arrived, and it looks like an intensely good time. Anything that features Affleck throwing someone to a hungry crocodile must be fun, right?

‘Runner, Runner’ is Affleck’s first post-‘Argo’ feature, and it sees the actor going back to wealthy-sleazeball mode ala ‘Boiler Room.’ In the film, Timberlake plays a Princeton student who loses all his tuition money to a shady gambling site, run by Affleck. After confronting the high-rolling businessman south of the border, Timberlake gets sucked into his dangerous world.

The first ‘Runner, Runner’ trailer comes courtesy of Entertainment Tonight, so, of course, you’ll have to listen to some of the correspondents’ unnecessary voiceover. Though, overall you get a nice taste of what looks to be a juicy thriller. [UPDATE: We’ve replaced the ET footage with the official trailer.]

‘Runner, Runner’ comes from ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ director Brad Furman and sports a pretty supporting cast, including Gemma Arterton and Anthony Mackie. It opens in theaters on September 27.
