The Accountant trailer: Ben Affleck is in the right place

Posted on

Warner Bros.

“Who is the accountant?” asks the new trailer for The Accountant before providing an easy answer: star Ben Affleck.

Directed by Gavin O’Connor (Warrior), the new Warner Bros. film stars Affleck as a man named Christian Wolff, a boy genius turned adult math savant who works as an accountant for “some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations.” Things are going well (Wolff makes a mean over easy egg) until a government official (J.K. Simmons) tries to get Wolff to give up his years of criminal knowledge. Gun fights and mystery ensue.

Costarring Anna Kendrick (as an accounting clerk who winds up unwittingly involved in the action), Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor, and John Lithgow, The Accountant is out on Oct. 14. Check out the trailer — featuring Radiohead’s Kid A fave “Everything In Its Right Place” — below.
