New Trailer for RUNNER RUNNER Starring Justin Timerblake, Gemma Arterton, and Ben Affleck

A new trailer has been released for Runner Runner, and I can’t decide what the funniest thing about it is.  Is it that the plot—Justin Timberlake playing a guy who falls in with bad people after being swindled in online poker—seems like it should be a movie from the mid-2000s?  Or is it that the movie harkens back to the days when Ben Affleck made bad career choices?  If there’s a sliver of hope for this movie, it’s that director Brad Furman and screenwriters Brian Koppelman &David Levien have good movies in their filmographies (The Lincoln Lawyer and Rounders, respectively).  Runner Runner has a slight chance of being the pleasant surprise of fall 2013 instead of the forgettable flop of 2004.
