The Gambler Red band Trailer

“F*uck you” pretty much says it all in The Gambler red band trailer, which posted earlier today on Yahoo. In the film, Mark Wahlberg plays an English professor with a gambling problem and gets in deep with the wrong sort of people. Watch the video and keep in mind red band trailers are not safe for work.

The Gambler is directed by Rupert Wyatt and stars Mark Wahlberg, Jessica Lang, Michael Kenneth Williams, Alvin Ing, Brie Larson and John Goodman.

Official Synopsis

Jim Bennett (Academy Award®-nominee Mark Wahlberg) is a risk taker. Both an English professor and a high-stakes gambler, Bennett bets it all when he borrows from a gangster (Michael Kenneth Williams) and offers his own life as collateral. Always one step ahead, Bennett pits his creditor against the operator of a gambling ring (Alvin Ing) and leaves his dysfunctional relationship with his wealthy mother (Academy Award®-winner Jessica Lange) in his wake. He plays both sides, immersing himself in an illicit, underground world while garnering the attention of Frank (John Goodman), a loan shark with a paternal interest in Bennett’s future. As his relationship with a student (Brie Larson) deepens, Bennett must take the ultimate risk for a second chance…

Check out The Gambler this holiday season when it hits theaters on December 19. Otherwise, f*uck you!
