Perhaps those that think that Ben Affleck can’t capture the rage of Batman and those demons that bounce around in his head like a bat in a cave should check out this new clip from his upcoming thriller Runner Runner.
In the new clip, premiering days after our last Runner Runner clip, it finds Affleck’s online gambling billionaire giving co-star Justin Timberlake a serious talking to. It’s rage meets understanding personified. Kind of like… a certain Caped Crusader?
Fresh off the news that Batman vs. Superman filming in Michigan early in 2014, we’ve got this clip from a film that really seems to know what story Runner Runner wants to tell.
Timberlake is a grad student who loses all his money to an online gambling site, owned by Affleck. When he heads to the luxe Caribbean island where Affleck calls home to get his money back, he instead winds up getting sucked into his world. Will he get in over his head? After all, as the first Runner Runner trailer said, “The house always wins.”
