Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck can pretty much do whatever the hell they want in Hollywood. Timberlake is insanely popular after the release of his new album and Affleck couldn’t be hotter after Argo. Runner Runner is evidently what they wanted to do.
That’s not entirely true seeing as filming took place in June and July of last year and the film is waiting for release this September, but still odd to see two guys this hot in a film that looks the exact opposite. I love Affleck as a bad guy, but there’s absolutely nothing going on here other than two actors that I like seeing on screen. Director Brad Furman does get a little leeway thanks to Lincoln Lawyer, but from this trailer this one looks like a dud.
