Both Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake have had busy weeks this past week. Ben Affleck of course, officially signed on to star as Batman in the upcoming sequel to MAN OF STEEL and hopefully, he’s not spending much time on the internet as not all fans seem to be too happy about the decision. Justin Timberlake, on the other hand, is rumored to be reuniting with N*Sync at the MTV Video Awards. Ben Affleck cast as a superhero and Justin Timberlake in a boy band; if you close your eyes, it feels just like 2003. Anyway, the two giants are teaming up for a movie called RUNNER RUNNER and you can check out the new clip below. RUNNER, RUNNER stars Ben Affleck, Justin Timberlake, Gemma Arterton, Anthony Mackie, Oliver Cooper, Ben Schwartz, Sam Palladio and David Costabile.
