The Mark Wahlberg-starring crime drama The Gambler is in cinemas next month – judging by the trailer we are in for a treat.

Directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Escapist), and also starring John Goodman, Brie Larson, Michael Kenneth Williams and Jessica Lange, The Gambler tells the story of Jim Bennett (Wahlberg), an English professor whose love of risk puts him in way over his head.

The Gambler, which is based on the 1974 film of the same name starring James Caan, is released in cinemas on Friday December 19.
