First Poster & Trailer: "The Gambler"

57 minutes ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Paramount Pictures has unveiled both the official one-sheet and red-band trailer for Rupert Wyatt's "The Gambler" starring a very lean Mark Wahlberg. William Monahan penned the script for the film which also stars Brie Larson and Jessica Lange.

A remake of the James Caan-led 1974 film, Wahlberg plays a college professor with a gambling addiction that leads him to lay his own life on the line as collateral against a loan from a gangster (Michael Kenneth Williams). The move brings him to the attention of a loan shark (John Goodman).

"The Gambler" will open in limited release on December 19th.

'The Gambler' Red-Band Trailer: Watch John Goodman Curse You Out

1 hour ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Mark Wahlberg plays a literature professor whose gambling addiction gets him way more than he bargained for when he gets mixed up with a bunch of mobsters. That's the set up for The Gambler -- a remake of the 1974 film starring James Caan -- and the first foul-mouthed trailer has arrived online just in time to remind you how much you love John Goodman when he gets his hands on a nice, juicy role.  Warning: The following trailer is Nsfw and contains foul language. Directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and starring Wahlberg, Goodman, Jessica Lange and Brie Larson, The Gambler looks like a shiny piece of badass -- sort of how you feel sitting in front of a bunch of casino chips, just waiting to risk 'em all because... f**k it.  Wahlberg...

First poster and red band trailer for The Gambler starring Mark Wahlberg

4 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first poster and red band trailer for Rupert Wyatt’s remake of 1974’s The Gambler have arrived online, and we’ve got them for you right here…

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…

The Gambler Trailer Reveals a Dramatically Thinner Mark Wahlberg

5 hours ago | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Mark Wahlberg is stepping into the shoes that James Caan originated in the upcoming remake of 1974's The Gambler. The first trailer is here, and it showcases Wahlberg's very noticeable weight loss for the role of Jim, a literature professor with a severe gambling problem. It's a little jarring to see him about 60 pounds down from what he usually is, but hopefully the transformation will be worth it. So far I'm loving Jessica Lange as his mother, though it's actually really strange to see her out of American Horror Story at this point. Brie Larson plays a student with whom Jim has a relationship, so let's just pretend that 18-year age gap doesn't weird us all out. The movie looks good, and I'm excited to see more footage before its Dec. 19 release date. This is the red band trailer, so prepare for lots of cursing, and also, John Goodman. Front »

Gripping Red Band Teaser for Rupert Wyatt’s The Gambler

6 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Did seeing Mark Wahlberg as a (pretty lame ass) inventor running around with robots and his over sexualized underage daughter in Transformers: Age of Extinction leave a bad taste in your mouth? You can either cleanse that palette by grabbing a bite at Wahlburgers, or you can watch this intense teaser trailer for the actor’s new film The Gambler. The red band teaser sets up a really promising, high-stakes drama. Director Rupert Wyatt looks to have done an amazing job on his first feature since walking away from the Planet of the Apes franchise he successfully rebooted with Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Paramount Pictures is placing their bets on this new film, and hoping to walk away with some Oscars. They’ve got some pretty good odds too. The script for the remake of the 1974 James Caan film comes from screenwriter William Monahan, who took home »

‘The Gambler': Mark Wahlberg In Remake’s First Redband Peek

7 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Mark Wahlberg has a few Nsfw words for John Goodman in Paramount’s first reveal of The Gambler, the remake of the 1974 drama that nabbed James Caan a Golden Globe nomination and jumpstarted screenwriter James Toback’s career. Given his reaction a few years back when the remake was announced, Toback might share the sentiment. This Gambler stars Wahlberg as a college professor struggling with a crippling gambling addiction, with Goodman, Brie Larson, Michael K. Williams and Jessica Lange rounding out the cast.

Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman face off in red-band teaser for 'The Gambler'

8 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

John Goodman has some words for Mark Wahlberg in the teaser for their upcoming film The Gambler, and since it's a red-band teaser, it's probably evident that the words aren't exactly pretty. (Get ready for a lot of "f-k yous" to be uttered.) "The wise man's life is based around 'f-k you,'" Goodman counsels. Wahlberg stars in Rupert Wyatt's remake of the 1974 James Caan movie, as an English professor, who has a taste for, well, gambling. He's surrounded in the film by some top-notch actors outside of Goodman, including Jessica Lange, Brie Larson, and Michael K. Williams. Wahlberg »

'The Gambler' trailer rolls the dice on Mark Wahlberg and f-bombs

8 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Karel Reisz’s 1974 drama “The Gambler,” an autobiographical drama by James Toback, is a slow burn portrait of addiction. Every little bit literature professor Axel Freed (James Caan) makes on the Blackjack table, he sinks a few steps lower until he drowns in his melancholy reality. “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” director Rupert Wyatt’s remake, swinging into the Oscar race at the tail end of the year, has a bit more bounce, channeling the Scorsese crime drama spirit with Mark Wahlberg as its troubled keystone. A totally different movie — and an intriguing departure (with plenty of cussin’ so you know it means business). The red-band trailer is murky the film’s connections to the original. Axel is now Jim Bennett, Los Angeles swaps in for New York, he still has a mom (Jessica Lange), but maybe John Goodman, lighting the screen on fire as a mob-ish boss, »

The Gambler Trailer Boasts A Skinny Mark Wahlberg And Tons Of John Goodman F-Bombs

8 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Warning: This trailer is red-band and as such is Nsfw. With the fall comes a slew of movies that are gearing for Oscar gold. Then as we move into the winter, a slate of big, flashy blockbusters pile up, demanding our attention. So how do you cut through all this clamor when you're a mid-level thriller about a professor with a gambling addiction? You unleash a trailer like The Gambler's, full of camp appeal and f-bombs, lazily chucked by the always awesome John Goodman. A remake of the 1974 James Caan vehicle, The Gambler stars Mark Wahlberg, who has shaved off about 60 pounds since he played the conniving bodybuilder in Michael Bay's Pain & Gain. Without the weight, the dude looks haggard, fitting as he's playing a literature professor who gets on the wrong side of some serious gangsters when his gambling debts stack up. Bringing some assurance of madness »

Mark Wahlberg Doesn’t Know When To Fold Them In First Trailer For The Gambler

8 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Paramount Pictures has debuted the official red band trailer for crime drama The Gambler, which stars Mark Wahlberg as an English professor that struggles to keep a hold on his relationship with the tables.

Billed as a loose remake of James Cann’s 1974 film of the same name, The Gambler will be directed by Rupert Wyatt who, like Wahlberg, is taking a break from the high-octane blockbusters following his work on Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

In essence, Wahlberg plays an everyday man known as Jim Bennett who has everything he could possibly need to sustain a happy, health life; but, one day, fuelled by his innate gambling urge, Bennett channels his inner Tyler Durden to rid himself of all forms of desire. Heck, even John Goodman’s loan shark is shocked by his left-field actions in the above trailer.
