'The Gambler' Red-Band Trailer: Wahlberg Knows When To Hold 'Em, Knows When To 'Fuck You'

In development since at least 2011, the remake of 1974's The Gambler has gone from being another Scorsese/DiCaprio collaboration to a union of Planet of the Apes revisionists Rupert Wyatt and Mark Wahlberg. As much as that would seem to be a slip in quality and rise in a planet of the apes, judging by this first teaser for the film, that might not be the case. While it's not a Scorsese film, there's still a script from The Departed's William Monahan, and co-star John Goodman seems to be chewing it up nicely. Perhaps now chewed enough to swallow Wahlberg as a former English professor, but at least Brie Larson, Michael K. Williams, and Jessica Lange are there to help us get it down.
