In his latest flick, Ben Affleck plays a math savant with OCD who works as a freelance accountant for the world’s biggest criminal organizations. In the first official trailer for “The Accountant,” Christian Wolff (Affleck) is introduced as a man who has more in common with “Einstein, Mozart and Picasso” than he does with the average person.
Instead of using his intellectual prowess for good, however, Wolff uses his extraordinary gifts to cook the books for some of the world’s most dangerous crime groups. His latest client is a robotics company where an accounting clerk played by Anna Kendrick has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars.
Wolff begins to unravel a bigger truth while the Treasury Department is hot on his heels. J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor and John Lithgow also star in the film. “The Accountant” hits theaters Oct. 14, 2016.
