Rupert Wyatt's The Gambler is one of three movies Paramount is hoping it can vault into the awards race without anyone having seen it by November. That's brave of them, although with many films taking a similar path toward intended Oscar success, there are the spaces there for all three of their upcoming contenders (Interstellar and Selma make up the other two) in the race. The Gambler has just been announced to premiere on the 10th of November at AFI Fest, which will also host the first screening of another awards hopeful that has been flying under the radar recently, J.C. Chandor's A Most Violent Year as its festival opener. Here are three stills which mark our first look at the remake, starring Mark Wahlberg, Jessica Lange and Brie Larson.
