Daredevil’s Jon Bernthal takes on Ben Affleck in new trailer for The Accountant
A thriller about an accountant? No, we’re not yanking your chain. Taking some time out from his duties as the dark knight, Ben Affleck shall soon be bursting back onto our screens in the role of a seemingly mild-mannered numbers man, who also happens to be an assassin.
According to The Accountant‘s official synopsis: “Christian Wolff (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 organisations. 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 film also stars Jeffrey Tambor, John Lithgow, and our ultimate bad boy crush Jon Bernthal, who intriguingly isn’t given a character name on the film’s IMBd page, but appears to be some sort of brooding antagonist from the footage below.
We can’t wait for The Accountant to hit UK cinemas on November 4th.
