This Week In Home Entertainment: We Are What We Are, Runner Runner And More
We Are What We Are begins with a gloriously overproduced storm, filled with clear raindrops and fallen leaves running into a small and muddy river, setting the tone for the drama to come. The rain stampedes through a forest and into a clearing, revealing a small, whitewashed farmhouse.

Weekend Box Office: Gravity Pulls In A Record October Number One
It was a record breaking weekend for the month of October as Gravity hauled in an impressive $55 million opening, topping Paranormal Activity's $52 million debut in 2011. The movie also marks the biggest opening for either George Clooney or Sandra Bullock and is a big score for under-recognized director and co-writer Alfonso Cuaron who has finally received both critical and financial acclaim for something other than what was arguably the best of the Harry Potter films.

This Rotten Week: Predicting Gravity And Runner Runner Reviews
I woke up this morning to Little Rotten Week’s 102 degree fever and the realization that today ends the regular season for baseball. Yup, it’s all bad around here. But at least we have some movies to discuss. That always helps. This week we’re hurtling through space and getting jobbed by online poker

Fall Movie Preview: The Profit vs. Prestige Venn Diagram
Welcome to fall movie season, where it's all about awards bait if you look in one direction (hello, August: Osage County!) and all about oddball blockbusters if you look in another (happy to see you, Riddick). Like any other time for movie releases, autumn is all about what you make of it, whether that's catching the three-hour French drama about lesbians or counting down the days until The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. But if you want an advance look at which films are begging for awards and which are best paired with a giant tub of popcorn, look no further

Runner Runner Character Posters: Beautiful People, And Not Much More
Timberlake and co-star Ben Affleck have a solid fanbase who will go and see anything these guys put out – and Gemma Arterton as well, I suppose – so it’s sometimes best just to hang onto the actors over a film’s storyline.

Ben Affleck And Justin Timberlake Go Head-To-Head In First Runner, Runner Trailer
The preview doesn't inspire a great deal of excitement, but we also shouldn't ignore the number of positive things going for the film. Director Brad Furman impressed with his 2011 courtroom drama The Lincoln Lawyer, and beyond bona fide stars Affleck and Timberlake the movie also features Anthony Mackie, Ben Schwartz, and Gemma Arterton in supporting roles. Perhaps there will be some surprises when Runner, Runner hits theaters on September 27th.

Parks And Rec's Jean Ralphio To Do Drama In Runner Runner
Comedian Ben Schwartz, best known as the scene-stealing Jean Ralphio of Parks and Recreaton, is due to bring a bit of bro-infused humor into Brad Furman's soon-to-shoot thriller Runner Runner. The film stars Justin Timberlake as a college student who falls in deep to the treacherous world of online gambling

Gemma Arterton Joins Affleck And Timberlake For Runner Runner
With eye-catching appearances in Quantum of Solace and Clash of the Titans, English beauty Gemma Arterton has become a sort of go-to girl when a macho movie needs some sultry eye candy. Notably, this sort of sexy sidelining is not really a reflection of Arterton's talent—critics generally cheered her starring role in Stephen Frear's plucky dramedy Tamara Drewe—but rather the tiresome trap that many young, lovely and vaguely exotic ingénues fall into.

Anthony Mackie Joins Affleck And Timberlake In Runner Runner
By now, if you've been going to the movies even somewhat regularly in the last few years, you surely know who Anthony Mackie is. Without ever quite making the step up to leading man, he's appeared in supporting roles in a lot of fascinating films, from The Hurt Locker to the underrated The Adjustment Bureau

Project X Breakout Oliver Cooper Joins Affleck And Timberlake In Runner Runner
Production is set to start in June, just a few months before Affleck's new directorial effort Argo opens October 12. It's nice to see him willing to take on acting roles in addition to his burgeoning directing career, and the idea of him playing a sleazeball online gambling entrepreneur? I mean no offense when I say that's some pretty perfect casting

Ben Affleck And Justin Timberlake Will Star In Gambling Thriller Runner Runner
Ben Affleck's latest acting job was actually for himself, as he took a leading role in his third directorial effort, Argo, which comes to theaters this fall. But the actor-turned-pretty-impressive-director apparently hasn't given up on working for other people either, and has signed on to star opposite Justin Timblerake
