NextMovie: 'Runner, Runner' Trailer

Ben Affleck is about to roll the dice by starring in another movie he didn't direct. Will Justin Timberlake be the J. Lo in this "Gigli"?

Hopefully not. The brand new trailer for "Runner, Runner," from "The Lincoln Lawyer" director Brad Furman, doesn't look too bad. Timberlake (perhaps in search of his EGOT) plays the young guy seduced by the evils of the corporate world. Affleck's character comes along to be all Michael Douglas in "Wall Street" with him (yes, Affleck is now the age to play the mentor instead of the mentee) and give him some shady tutelage.
