The Gambler opens in cinemas on Friday and ahead of the release a clip and featurette have been released.
Entitled You Drink, the clip sees English professor and a high-stakes gambler Jim Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) approach big time loan shark Frank (John Goodman) for money to clear his gambling debts. The Mark Wahlberg featurette includes interviews from the cast including Brie Larson, Michael Kenneth Williams, Jessica Lange and director Rupert Wyatt.
The synopsis for The Gambler is: Jim Bennett (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 (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…
