Ben Affleck is capable of more than you know in The Accountant trailer

Ben Affleck The Accountant

I've got to hand it to Ben Affleck, the dude has really turned his professional life around. After a period in which he seemed trapped in an endless cycle of run-of-the-mill action films and romantic comedies, Affleck took control and stepped behind the camera to give us some awesome films like GONE BABY GONE and ARGO, not to mention taking on some interesting acting challenges in GONE GIRL and proving to be the best part of BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. The first trailer for Affleck's latest film, THE ACCOUNTANT, has just arrived and it certainly looks as though it has the potential to be something very good.

"Can our son lead a normal life?"

THE ACCOUNTANT was directed by Gavin O’Connor (WARRIOR) and stars Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor, and John Lithgow. Affleck is currently in post-production on LIVE BY NIGHT, which he directed, wrote, and starred in, as well as serving as executive producer and appearing as Bruce Wayne/Batman in Zack Snyder's JUSTICE LEAGUE. Ben Affleck is also set to direct and star in his own solo BATMAN film. The man likes to work.

A synopsis for THE ACCOUNTANT:

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.

THE ACCOUNTANT is set to hit theaters on October 14, 2016.

Not what I expected. Given Affleck's track record of the past several years and that great trailer, this could be pretty darn excellent.

This looks awesome because it seems different and wasn't anything I was expecting upon reading that synopsis. And Gavin O' Connor is a very talented director and look forward to see what he can do with this type of story with a remarkable cast like this one.

Cool. I can't say this trailer shot the movie up to one of my most anticipated films of the year, but it did do a really good job as a trailer - it teased but didn't lay the exact plot out. Also, when I read the first articles about the making of this film it sounded like a rom-com where the girl finds out her guy is actually a secret agent or assassin or something. Def glad it's not that. Still can't tell if it's more of a character piece or an action film, but at least it looks different.

Very strange: the movie almost had nothing to do with the synopsis

nevertheless, that was a cool trailer that communicated a nice, unsettled vibe. Colour me curious.
