'Runner, Runner' First Look: Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck Face Off


Timberlake portrays a broke Princeton student, who ends up being a protege of Affleck's villainous Ivan Block, in the upcoming crime drama co-produced by Leonardo DiCaprio.

Entertainment Tonight unveils a first look at "Runner, Runner", the upcoming crime drama feature from director Brad Furman and producer Leonardo DiCaprio. In the short preview, fans can get glimpses of leading men Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck, whose characters are different in many ways.

Timberlake is introduced as an ordinary student from Princeton University, who loses his tuition money playing online poker. Meanwhile, co-star Affleck shows off his evil side for his portrayal of ruthless rich man Ivan Block. With a glimpse of him feeding his pets alligators with human beings, it is enough to say that Affleck pulls off a convincingly deadly persona.

"Runner, Runner" centers on a businessman named Ivan Block, who owns an offshore gambling operation and finds his relationship with his protege reaching a boiling point. Written by Brian Koppelman and David Levien, it also features Gemma Arterton, Anthony Mackie, Oliver Cooper, Ben Schwartz and Sam Palladio.

DiCaprio, who recently starred in Jazz-age drama "The Great Gatsby", co-produces the movie along with writers Koppelman and Levien, Jennifer Davisson Killoran, Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher.

"Runner, Runner" will open in theaters across the United States on September 27.
