Ben Affleck Plays A Math Savant With A Secret In ‘The Accountant’ (Trailer)

Ben Affleck has dropped the cape, but kept that deep introspective look on his face for his new role in the upcoming action thriller film, The Accountant.

The official “teaser” trailer, which is really more like a full-blown trailer, shows just enough to leave you wanting to know more.

There’s a boy with special abilities, but maybe some social issues as well. A very nerdy looking Accountant (Affleck), with a distrubing expression on his face like he’s about to blow something up; and a few other cool actors in the mix adding to the “thriller” and (wow, this looks like it could be good) part of the trailer.

All in all, just by trailer alone, the Gavin O’Connor directed movie for Warner Bros. Pictures looks like something moviegoers might be willing to buy a ticket for this October, when it opens in theaters.



Official 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.
