Ben Affleck’s The Accountant was originally set to be released in January, but was moved to October 14th to compete in awards season.
The Accountant is the story of Chris Wolff a math savant and accountant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance sleeper assassin for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s CED (Crime Enforcement Division), run by Ray King, starting to close in on him, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian un-cooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.
