Sad Batman is back in a new trailer for Warner Bros.’ The Accountant, a drama about a mathematics savant with more affinity for numbers than people.
“Can our son ever be normal? Define normal,” the voiceover asks. “Maybe he’s capable of much more than we know.” The narrator explains that Wolff has the smarts to steal millions from the Sinaloa drug cartel and get out alive. “Imagine the secrets this guy has.”
The Accountant has an October 14, 2016 release directed by Gavin O’Connor also starring Anna Kendrick, Jon Bernthal, Alison Wright, J.K. Simmons and John Lithgow.
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.
