First clip from Runner Runner starring Ben Affleck: watch now

"What do you say?"

A first clip from gambling thriller Runner Runner has been released, and it's all about showing off Ben Affleck as a rich guy who owns a boat.

In what feels like a canny marketing move to capitalise on Affleck's recent casting as Batman, the clip has a faint whiff of Bruce Wayne about it as Affleck's mogul chats with Justin Timberlake.

Not least because Affleck's character is ridiculously rich - though a few shades more corrupt than the Wayne we know and love.

Check out the clip below…

As a clip from Runner Runner, it's not massively interesting (though the trailer's pretty fun). As an insight into just how Affleck might tackle the role of Bruce Wayne, though, this clip's a must-watch.

Directed by Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer), Runner Runner follows grad student Richie (Timberlake), who's seduced into the world of gambling by mega-rich Ivan (Affleck).

Runner Runner opens 27 September 2013.

      It's a shame. Every single thing Affleck does now, whether is c**p or oscar worthy, is going to be overshadowed by Batman. Most of what he does between now and then will be largely overlooked. Unless it sucks, in which case the whining about how wrong he is far Batman will begin anew. There is just as much about Bats as there is about the actual movie he's in up there.

      Wow, Affleck and Timberlake. It's like watching Brando and Olivier facing off. Two titans of the silver screen there.
