Sure, Ben Affleck has a very lofty position in the whole DC Cinematic Universe, but that doesn’t mean that he cannot work on other projects that don’t require vigilante justice or a cape. His next project is The Accountant and it shows that the actor is not done for 2016. The trailer shows him as a math genius who has a thing for accounting and also for vigilante justice. Wait, what? Yes, indeed. The trailer will take you on one hell of a ride.
Warner Bros released the trailer on YouTube in which Affleck stars as Christian Wolff, who is basically a ‘math savant’. He transforms his career of a CPA into a lucrative and profitable service for criminal organizations until he came across a dirty robotics company. Along with the assistance of Anna Kendrick, he puts together a financial puzzle that sends them on the run for their lives. John Lithgow, J.K Simmons, John Bernthal and Jeffrey Tambor round off the film’s spectacular cast.
The audience can feel the dread slowly building with a combination of evolving storylines and receptive imagery and the trailer ends with the drumming of Ben Affleck’s fingers, which adds a nice touch to the trailer. Let’s hope that Gavin O’Connor’s direction of the film allow the financial drama to strike a balance between tax returns and gunshots. However, the trailer is nothing but a tease of the events of the movie so much cannot be said right now. The Accountant will hit the screens on October 14th this year.
