Coming off his Argo Oscar win, Ben Affleck is looking to have some fun with his next project, a gambling drama titled Runner Runner. Directed by The Lincoln Lawyer helmer Brad Furman, the film sees Justin Timberlake playing a Princeton student who unfairly loses a big online poker gamble and makes it his mission to track down the corrupt site owner played by Affleck, who ends up making JT his right-hand man.
We’ve now got the first trailer for the film, which unfortunately comes from Entertainment Tonight, who butcher a great deal of it. But still, there’s enough footage here to get a strong handle on its tone and we’ll update when the official one arrives later this week.

Update: The official version has now landed and can be seen below.
Runner Runner opens on September 27th, 2013.
