Quick Hit

Ben Affleck Ditches The Codpiece For A Calculator In "The Accountant"

Despite the name, it's still an action flick.

Ben Affleck Ditches The Codpiece For A Calculator In "The Accountant"

WHAT: The new trailer for Ben Affleck's new action movie The Accountant, that also stars Anna Kendrick, John Bernthal, J.K. Simmons, Jeffrey Tambor, and more.

WHO: Warner Bros. Pictures

WHY WE CARE: The name sounds like an action flick parody. Could there be a less adrenaline-pumped career choice-turned-movie name? The Plastics Manufacturing Middle Manager? The Data Entry Clerk? What we have here is an intense, frantic trailer that makes this one looks like a cross between A Beautiful Mind-meets-Bourne (A Beautiful Bourne?), and is probably the action flick more than a few Affleck fans wished the actor would stick to, instead of carrying the Dark Knight's baggage.
