The preview was last night, and the Regal E-Walk theater on 42nd St. was packed. Here’s what one NYCOTC follower said about the film:
Thanks again for the pass to see The Gambler last night. I really appreciate it. I really enjoyed John Goodman! The movie gave good insight into the mind and motivations of a person who lives in the extremes. Mark Wahlberg was easy on the eyes too.
The Gambler opens to the public on Christmas Day.

Here’s the plot of what you missed last night:
The Gambler is a pulse-pounding thriller. Jim Bennett (Academy Award®-nominee Mark Wahlberg) is a risk taker. Both an English professor and a high-stakes gambler, he bets it all when he borrows from a gangster (Michael Kenneth Williams) and offers his own life as collateral. 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.
