A preview for Runner, Runner, starring Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck, aired on Entertainment Tonight earlier this week. Click here for a refresher. The full first trailer was released yesterday. See if you can make it through the part where JT says, “What are you talking about?” without laughing.

No but seriously, what are you talking about?

Because who can explain it? Who can explain why they keep trying to convince us he’s a proper actor?

Who can explain this description of Runner, Runner from Rope of Silicon?

“20th Century Fox will release the film on September 27, which makes it a possible candidate for the Toronto Film Festival on top of having a chance at some possible Oscar nominations.”

WHAT?!?

Oscar nominations?

In what world would anyone suggest, after seeing this trailer, that an Oscar nomination might be forthcoming?!?!?

Speaking of Oscar, Ben Affleck just won one for Argo. And while he didn’t direct Runner, Runner, this will be the first time we see him at the movies since then. This is the follow-up? Makes me wonder whether or not Jennifer Garner asked him to do it as a favour to her best friend Jessica Biel. Because goddamn, why else would he?
