The Accountant Trailer

"If you do down this road, you can't go back." WB has debuted the second trailer for The Accountant, directed by Gavin O'Connor, starring Ben Affleck as a gifted mathematician who becomes an accountant for some of the world's most dangerous criminal organizations. The first trailer was fairly tame, introducing Affleck as Christian Wolff, but this new trailer is all about the suspense and the guns and the danger. With the government suddenly onto him, Wolffe tries to take on legitimate work and meets a young clerk, played by Anna Kendrick, who helps him uncook their books. The cast includes Jon Bernthal, Alison Wright, J.K. Simmons, John Lithgow, Jeffrey Tambor and Cynthia Addai-Robinson. From the looks of it, this might actually be pretty good, even though I'm not sure about where it's all going to end up. Fire it up.

Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for Gavin O'Connor's The Accountant, direct from YouTube:

The Accountant Poster

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 organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (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 directed by Gavin O'Connor (of Miracle, Pride & Glory, Warrior, Jane Got a Gun), from a screenplay written by Bill Dubuque. Warner Bros will release the film in theaters starting on October 14th.

Bsn Affleck aside, this story is something like a creating a really weird role model for a lot of insecure people in this world. You can't control the world, no matter what skills or concentration you have. You struggle within its possibilities and impossibilities, with them and against them ... Hollywood just seems to be without having ability to express it other way but only through killings and arms ...

The NRA needs to sell more guns.

Yeah, someone must rethink that flower power paradigm since that guns and shooting bizarreness is just overstretched everywhere we look today in most of the films ...

I am pretty sure this is not going to glamourize Affleck's character. He looks like he has a spectrum disorder called Asperger's. It will show how hard his life has been and how he was pigeon holed into being something he does not like.

Ok, David, I'll take your considerations seriously. Slightly suspicious about that version but let's wait until the film comes out for the final judgment. Having said that, I can't understand why almost every story regarding some character has to do something with guns and shooting. Don't get me wrong, when I say that I mean US. I agree with what tarek says, there must some bizarre motif behind it. Since it can't be for the sake of qualitative film narrative ... Anyway, thank you for your reply and thoughts ...

THERE IT IS!!! I have been waiting patiently for a kickass follow-up to WARRIOR.

This looks like Anna Kendrick's Mr. Right but...serious.
