What's a crime thriller without angry crocodiles? (Actually, is there another kind of crocodile?) Yesterday, the very first snippets of footage from Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck's new movie, "Runner, Runner" appeared on Entertainment Tonight, and it looks pretty cool.

For the film, Timberlake took off his suit and tie to play a Princeton student named Richie with a knack for online gambling. But when he bets the house -- in this case, his tuition -- he loses big. Suspecting someone ripped him off, he decides it would be a great idea to bring his grievances directly to the source: Ivan Block, a shady businessman played by Ben Affleck, who runs the business on an island far from the long arm of the law.

"Ocean's Thirteen" scribes Brian Koppelman and David Levien wrote the script for "Runner, Runner," and Brad Furman of "The Lincoln Lawyer" directed the film, which was shot on location in Puerto Rico.

"Runner, Runner" will scramble into theaters on September 27.
