A nice behind the scenes featurette has been released for the upcoming Ben Affleck-starring thriller The Accountant.

The five-minute promo has the impressive cast, which includes Anna Kendrick, Jon Bernthal, J.K. Simmons and John Lithgow, taking us through the plot and complementing each in the process. We’re given plenty of film and behind-the-scenes footage to enjoy as well.

Affleck has been enjoying quite the career high over the last few years, and it’s showing no sign of slowing down. Apart from this potentially awesome thriller, the two-time Academy Award winner has his next directorial effort Live by Night lined up for early next year, followed by his return as Batman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, and, you know, the solo Batman film he’s also set to direct.

The Accountant, directed by Warrior helmer Gavin O’Connor, hits the U.S. on October 14 and arrives in Australia on November 3.

Synopsis for The Accountant:

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 (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.
