When isn’t Justin Timberlake a hot commodity? The chart topper is scorching right now, following his epic MTV Video Music Awards performance in August (‘N Sync reunion included – his idea, natch), current world tour and upcoming The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2 album release on Sept. 30.

Timberlake is showing Vegas some love next week, starting with the Planet Hollywood Resort premiere of his new thriller flick, Runner Runner, which centers on the internet gambling underworld. Timberlake brings sexy back to the red carpet Wednesday, Sept. 18 for the private movie screening. Fans can line up ­­- behind the velvet ropes, that is – to catch a glimpse of the “Mirrors” crooner in advance for the film’s Oct. 4 nationwide release date.  He’ll also wow Sin City at the iHeartRadio music festival three days later.


Justin Timberlake will say hi to fans on Planet Hollywood’s red carpet Sept. 18.

Co-starring with Ben Affleck in Runner, Runner, Timberlake plays Richie Furst, a college student who takes a gamble and loses his tuition money in an online poker scheme, only to be lured into the business by ringleader Affleck and his flashy lifestyle.

    Hi Elicia:
    Sorry, the premiere isn’t open to the public. We gave away some special passes! But you can catch the stars on the red carpet.

    Hi Elicia:

    Unfortunately the screening is full! We gave away a couple passes in a facebook contest. However, you can catch a glimpse of the stars on the red carpet. 🙂
