After his recent, but brilliant, stint as the caped crusader Ben Affleck is on a high. The man is a 540037435 threat in the film industry: producer, director, writer, actor, and all-round good guy who rebuilt his career from the ashes of Gigli.
Now he returns in front of the camera in drama The Accountant.
The film revolves around a math savant who has more affinity for numbers than people (aka, every smart person role ever created.) On the outside, he simple works for a small town CPA office. But behind closed doors, Christian runs every account for the criminal underbelly and soon the police are on his trail.
Affleck is joined by Anna Kendrick and J.K. Simmons which spells good things for the thrilling drama. The trailer is somewhat gripping but, still, money and bad things?
Isn’t this a tale we’ve heard before?
