Warner Bros. Pictures has debuted the first trailer for The Accountant, starring Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jean Smart, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Jeffrey Tambor and John Lithgow.
In the dramatic thriller, 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.
Opening in theaters on October 14, The Accountant is rated R for strong violence and language throughout.
Directed by Gavin O’Connor from a script by Bill Dubuque, the film was produced by Mark Williams, Lynette Howell; executive producers Gavin O’Connor, Jamie Patricof, and Marty Ewing.
