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

Everybody gambles

Runner Runner has released a new trailer online, in which Justin Timberlake finds himself as the fall-guy in Ben Affleck's online poker scam.

Timberlake plays a Princeton grad student who, believing he has been cheated out of poker winnings online, decides to jet out to Costa Rica to confront Affleck, the tycoon behind the site in question.

Inevitably, it doesn't take Affleck long before he has talked him around and brought him into the fold. However, the con-job is only just beginning, with Timberlake soon in the frame to take the fall for the whole operation.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

What with a frankly implausible plot and scenery-chewing antics from the two leads, it's clear that this one isn't exactly playing it straight. Still, as the cinematic equivalent of an airport novel, it looks like quite good fun.

Directed by Brad Furman and co-starring Gemma Arterton, Anthony Mackie and David Costabile, Runner Runner will open in the UK on 27 September 2013.
