Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake star in first trailer for Runner, Runner: watch now

The house always wins...

Fox has released the first full trailer for gambling thriller Runner, Runner, in which Justin Timberlake finds himself in over his head with Ben Affleck's shady poker mogul.

The new film sees Timberlake play an overdrawn Princeton student attempting to pay for his tuition by playing for high stakes on an online poker site.

However, when he loses the lot and believes himself cheated, he decides to go in search of the site's crooked boss. And that's when the trouble really starts…

Take a look at the new trailer, below:



To say that it looks a little daft would be something of an understatement, but with the leads clearly having a ball and Anthony Mackie heading up a strong supporting cast, this could still be a lot of fun!

Directed by Brad Furman and co-starring Gemma Arterton, Ben Schwartz and Oliver Cooper, Runner, Runner opens in the US on 27 September 2013, with a UK date to be confirmed.

      Looks like Timberlake is another charisma black hole.
