One’s a box office heartthrob and a recent Oscar winner. The other is one of pop music’s sexiest and most beloved hit makers. Combine them in a thriller set in Costa Rica and it’s somewhat easy to start sniffing the sweet smell of (even more) success. At least that’s what Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake are hoping.

A clip from their upcoming collaboration, “Runner Runner” is now online. In it, the two meet on a yacht and talk mysteriously about business. The trailer for the movie was released recently as well.

JT plays a Princeton grad student named Richie who, believing he's been swindled, travels to Central America to confront online gambling tycoon Ivan Block (Affleck). Richie is sucked in by promises of riches, until he learns the troubling truth about Block.

“Runner Runner” isn't set to hit theaters until October 4, but you can catch a brand new clip in the player below now!
