A brand new featurette has been released for Runner, Runner, the upcoming thriller starring Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake. The featurette has the two lead actors explaining the film’s plot. We also get some new footage of the film that we haven’t seen before. As far as thrillers go, this seems pretty generic. Hopefully, that doesn’t mean that Runner, Runner won’t have some fun to offer.
Beneath the featurette you can find the official synopsis as well as three character posters for the film.
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.
Starring Ben Affleck, Justin Timberlake, Gemma Arterton, Anthony Mackie and Ben Schwartz.
Directed by Brad Furman ( The Lincoln Lawyer).
