The high stakes world of online poker is the subject for the upcoming thriller, Runner, Runner. Justin Timberlake stars as a broke college student who attempts an all or nothing session of online poker to get enough to pay off his tuition but ends up losing. He suspects the game might have been rigged and sets out to confront the man behind the website (Ben Affleck), who recruits Timberlake to do…something, which gets the attention of the FBI, led by Anthony Mackie. The poker seems to take a back seat for some sort of vague, rags to riches thriller. It’s from The Lincoln Lawyer director, Brad Furman, and the movie is out this September. You can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
