Ben Affleck’s next non-superhero, The Accountant hits screens in November, and the first trailer for Gavin O’Connor’s thriller has dropped. This looks great – and the November date means it might get some traction at the box office. We need more movies (grown-up, non-CGI) like The Accountant and I hope this does well.
Here’s the synopsis:
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 starring Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor, John Lithgow opens in the UK on 4 November, 2016.
