BATFFLECK! With the nerds in comic book stores still wringing their hands with worry over Daredevil (dudes, that was ten years ago) taking over the cape and cowl, audiences will get an early taste of Bad Ben in "Runner Runner" (we're presuming Batman will be a thorn in the side of Superman before they team up to save the world). And heading into the long weekend, a new clip, featurette and pics are here for the upcoming thriller.

BATFFLECK! With the nerds in comic book stores still wringing their hands with worry over Daredevil (dudes, that was ten years ago) taking over the cape and cowl, audiences will get an early taste of Bad Ben in "Runner Runner" (we're presuming Batman will be a thorn in the side of Superman before they team up to save the world). And heading into the long weekend, a new clip, featurette and pics are here for the upcoming thriller.

Ben Affleck, Justin Timberlake and Gemma Arterton star in the movie about a college kid (Timberlake) who gets screwed by an online poker site and flies to Costa Rica to confront the sleazy owner (Affleck). What happens? Well, he gets a job offer and takes it, only to find out that his sleazy boss is—gasp—sleazy. Cue lots of yelling on beaches or something. This slick piece of entertainment is brought to you by Brad Furman, who actually elevated the otherwise routine "The Lincoln Lawyer" more than that material deserved, so maybe there's more than meets the eye here?

"Runner Runner" deals from the bottom of the deck on October 4th.
