Bad guy Affleck in Runner Runner trailer

RunnerRunner.jpgJustin Timberlake and Ben Affleck in the same film, and Affleck is playing a bad guy. This doesn't seem right, especially with Affleck not directing. That said the trailer and the two leads look good.

Runner Runner is the film that sees the two going head to head and Affleck looks like a cracking bad guy, especially when he starts feeding people to sharks. Bond anyone?

Runner Runner is the story of a University student who gambles online in order to raise the tuition fee he needs to stay studying, but when he unbelievably loses it all he gets suspicious and begins investigating the company behind it. Before long he's made touch with the man behind the company and been recruited into a world of high stakes of not just money but of life and death.

Ben Affleck is playing the man behind the offshore gambling company who is netting himself a huge amount of money but it isn't all legitimate and it's decidedly dangerous, especially for anyone around him.

Justin Timberlake plays the student who loses everything and heads off to the offshore company to try and get his money back, money he believes has been stolen from him. He gets the chance to gain it all back and more by working for Ivan Block, the man behind the company, and for a while he revels in the success. That is until the FBI grab him and turn him over as an informant.

Anthony Mackie also stars in the film directed by Brad Furman who last directed The Lincoln Lawyer and is written by Brian Koppelman and David Levien.

Here's the trailer that comes through Yahoo Movies and The Hollywood Reporter:

Doesn't the prospect of Affleck being bad sell the film to you?
