Runner Runner starring Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck coming to Blu-ray in January
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has announced that the crime thriller RUNNER RUNNER, from director Brad Furman and starring Justin Timberlake, Ben Affleck, Gemma Arterton, Anthony Mackie and Michael Esper, will be available on Blu-ray January 7, 2013.
Official synopsis for RUNNER RUNNER: Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck star in this high-stakes crime thriller where the lure of easy money is the riskiest bet of all. 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) trying to bring him down. Check out the trailer below.
Shockingly, for a film starring Academy Award winner Ben Affleck and superstar Justin Timberlake, RUNNER RUNNER only brought in a whopping $19 million at the box office. Maybe it was just a rough weekend, or maybe it’s just not so great, but either way I know I personally have to see it because who could resist those two guys on the same screen?
Special features for RUNNER RUNNER include:
• House of Cards: The Inside Story of Online Poker
• Deleted Scenes
