Justin Timberlake (Friends with Benefits) and Ben Affleck (Argo) star in the 2013 crime drama Runner Runner.

When Princeton grad student Richie Furst (Timberlake) believes he’s been swindled by an online poker site, he heads to Costa Rica to confront gambling tycoon Ivan Block (Affleck), the man he thinks is responsible. But Richie will soon face the ultimate power play as he finds himself caught between Block’s promises of unlimited wealth and the zealous FBI agent (Anthony Mackie, (Pain & Gain) trying to bring him down.

Directed by Brad Furman, the film also stars beautiful Gemma Arterton (Byzantium).

Release wide to U.S> theaters in early October, 2013, Runner Runner did poorly poorly at the box office, grossing a lackluster $19 million. The critics weren’t wild about the flick, though they acknowledged the cast was clad in some fine duds.
