The trailer for ‘The Accountant’ which is a crime thriller and starring Ben Affleck and Anna Kendrick has just been released.
In the film, Affleck plays Christian Wolff, a socially-awkward and unassuming accountant for a small-town CPA office who secretly freelances as an accountant for dangerous criminal organizations. Kendrick co-stars in the lead female role as a young accounting clerk at a robotics company who notices a discrepancy involving millions of dollars and and winds up being dragged into Affleck’s character’s dangerous double life.
The film’s supporting cast includes Jon Bernthal as a mercenary, John Lithgow as one of Affleck’s legitimate clients, Jeffrey Tambor as one of Affleck’s illicit clients and J.K. Simmons as the head of the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division. The movie was directed by Gavin O’Connor (Miracle, Warrior) from a screenplay by Bill Dubuque (The Judge).
The Accountant marks a break for Affleck from the world of superheroes and the DC Cinematic Universe. The actor, of course, starred as Bruce Wayne in this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and will be reprising the role for the upcoming Suicide Squad, a standalone Batman movie and two Justice League films. However, you can catch Affleck without his cape and cowl when The Accountant hits theaters on October 14. Watch the action-packed first trailer below!
