Watch Anthony Mackie In Trailer For Thriller 'Runner Runner'

null

Here’s your first look at the upcoming thriller Runner Runner, starring Ben Affleck, Justin Timberlake and Anthony Mackie, directed by Brad Furman, whose previous film was the

Matthew McConaughey legal thriller, The Lincoln Lawyer.

The film’s basic premise, which you’ve seen before, deals

with a young man who falls under the sway of a seductive and manipulative older

mentor, only to realize too late that he’s a lot more dangerous than he was led

to believe, and that he’s in big trouble.

But in Runner Runner, Timberlake “plays a Princeton grad student Richie

believing he’s been swindled, who travels to Costa Rica to confront online

gambling tycoon Ivan Block (Affleck).

Richie is seduced by Block’s promise of immense wealth, until he learns the

disturbing truth about his benefactor. When the FBI (represented by Mackie playing

a generic FBI officer) tries to coerce Richie to help bring down Block, Richie

faces his biggest gamble ever, attempting to outmaneuver the two forces

closing in on him.

See, I told you that you’ve seen it before. You know like The Firm, for example, just to name one.

The films open on Sept.

27th.
