Justin Timberlake, Ben Affleck, and Gemma Arterton take the lead for the crime-drama, which is just a few weeks away from its release on both sides of the Atlantic. And with its release so close on the horizon, a handful of new images have surfaced of the leading trio.
Princeton grad student Richie, believing he’s been swindled, travels to Costa Rica to confront online gambling tycoon Ivan Block.

When the FBI tries to coerce Richie to help bring down Block, Richie faces his biggest gamble ever: attempting to outmaneuver the two forces closing in on him.
Anthony Mackie, Oliver Cooper, Ben Schwartz, David Costabile, and Sam Palladio complete the cast nicely alongside Timberlake, Affleck, and Arterton.
