‘The Accountant’ Trailer Stars Ben Affleck as a Genius Assassin

Anna Kendrick & Ben Affleck

Warner Bros. Pictures has the first trailer for director Gavin O’Connor’s action-thriller The Accountant, which stars Ben Affleck and Anna Kendrick.

Backed by Radiohead‘s “Everything in its Right Place,” this one is more of a mood piece. The film follows Affleck’s character as a small-town accountant by day and freelance assassin by night. The dude was diagnosed with a developmental disorder as a child.

Also starring J. K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor, John Lithgow, and Cynthia Addai-Robinsonthe, The Accountant opens on October 14th, 2016. Watch the trailer below.

Regardless of how the movie ultimately turns out, that’s a trailer. You had my curiosity but now you have my attention.

Anna Kendrick & Ben Affleck

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.
