‘Runner Runner’ Premieres In Las Vegas
Runner Runner, starring Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake, premiered on Wednesday, Sept. 18 in Las Vegas.
In the film, Timberlake plays Princeton University graduate Richie Furst, who loses all of his tuition money in an online poker game. Once he realizes the site was hosted in a remote spot in Costa Rica, he decides to track down the guy who runs it – Ivan Block. Ivan, played by Affleck, manages to lure Richie into the sketchy business, not foreseeing that his protégé might become a double agent for the FBI.
At Runner Runner’s premiere at the Vegas Planet Hollywood, Timberlake posed for photos alongside his wife Jessica Biel, who dressed to match her movie star husband. Biel sported a Dolce and Gabanna slim-fitting women’s tuxedo with black pumps and a Mark Cross grace black box, while Timberlake donned a navy blue suit with black lapels and crispy white tuxedo shirt almost identical to Biel’s.
While his wife Jennifer Garner was home with the children – Violet, Samuel and Seraphina – Affleck looked dapper as usual in a gunmetal grey suit. Affleck’s leading lady in the film, Quantum of Solace actress Gemma Arterton attended the premiere in a floor-length dark green gown. Runner Runner actors Anthony Makie and Sam Palladio were also in attendance.
Runner Runner will be in wide release Sept. 25.
