As seen in the video released via Yahoo! Movies, Affleck in his less heroic role as a billionaire hangs out on his luxurious yacht with singer/actor Justin Timberlake’s poor college student. During the chat, the Ben offers Justin a special opportunity.
In the thriller Runner, Runner, one man must decide whether to side with a corrupt businessman who is making him millions or with the law. Justin Timberlake stars as Richie, a smart Princeton student who loses his tuition money when he is scammed by an online poker site.
He tracks down the site’s owner in a remote island and meets Ivan Block (Ben Affleck), a very rich man. Ivan offers him a job as his right-hand man, and at first, life is going great. However, Richie’s millions, career, and life are in jeopardy when an FBI agent (Anthony Mackie) wants to get to Ivan through him. Runner, Runner also stars Gemma Arterton, David Costabile, and Oliver Cooper.
