The first trailer has been released for Ben Affleck’s new thriller The Accountant, and it looks like an incredibly good film. Check out the intense and chilling trailer below.
The movie was directed by Gavin O’Connor (Miracle, Warrior), and it also has an incredible supporting cast that includes Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor, and John Lithgow. There’s a lot of great talent attached to this project, and it looks like they’ve made a hell of a film that I’m 100% on board with.
Christian Wolff (Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.
The Accountant opens in theaters on October 14th.
