Ben Affleck has certainly made impressive turn-around. A few years ago his career seemed in danger of becoming a punchline, but since then he’s become an Oscar-winning director, turned in some really good performances and even convinced many who’d given him no chance that he could be a good Batman.
Now he’s returning with The Accountant.
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 will be in UK cinemas on November 4th, 2016. Take a look at the trailer below. [Read more…]
