‘The Accountant’ looks awesome. This masterly created trailer does a great job of showing us little slivers of what looks like a unique, intense, and dark movie. Ben Affleck also looks to be bringing his “A-Game” with a character with extreme OCD and quirks, who just happens to be a stone cold killer.
Take a look for yourself…
Did you notice that Affleck doesn’t utter one word in the trailer? I know it may seem weird but I think that adds to the intensity of his character in this trailer. The music and the “Flashbacks” work as well to paint a slightly fractured and dark tone.
The official synopsis…
Christian Wolff (Ben 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 movie also stars Jon Bernthal , Alison Wright, Jeffrey Tambor, and John Lithgow.
Movie opens October 14, 2016
