2013 Guide Analysis: ""The Lincoln Lawyer" director Brad Furman and "Rounders" scribes Brian Koppelman and David Levien have teamed for this thriller set in the lucrative, but highly secretive world of online gambling. Shot in Puerto Rico last Summer, Justin Timberlake stars as a Princeton student cheated of his tuition money by playing online poker. He flies to Costa Rica in the hope of reclaiming his losses from the site's billionaire owner (Ben Affleck).

Unexpectedly he ends up becoming the deceptive and corrupt CEO's right-hand man. At the same time, an FBI agent (Anthony Mackie) sees the student's proximity as a way into the world of this criminal CEO whom he has spent years trying to bring down. Of his role as "the Gordon Gekko of Internet gambling websites," Affleck has said it reminded him of his cameo in "Boiler Room" as he has to deliver a lot of long speeches about the brutal truth that comes with getting ahead."
