Warner Bros. has unveiled a big new trailer for The Accountant, the upcoming thriller led by Ben Affleck.

Directed by Gavin O’Connor (Warrior), The Accountant sees Affleck playing Christian Wolff, a genius accountant who freelances for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations.

We’ve got high hopes for this one. O’Connor knocked it out of the park with Warrior, and Affleck looks to be putting in a strong performance. On top of that, there’s a fantastic supporting cast, including Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor, and John Lithgow, and the plot itself is intriguing as hell.

The Accountant will open in 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.
