"Calculate Your Choices" - 'The Accountant' Poster Takes Aim

46 minutes ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first poster for The Accountant starring Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor, and John Lithgow.

The film is directed by Gavin O'Connor from a screenplay written by Bill Dubuque.

The Accountant follows Christian Wolff (Affleck) who 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 opens the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.

23 May 2016 4:14 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cannes — Paris-based Mondex & Cie has boarded “33 Days,” starring Antonio Banderas as Picasso and recounting the painter’s emotional turmoil as he worked on “Guernica,” his reaction to the Nazi Luftwaffe blitzkrieg destruction of the Basque town in 1937.

Move comes as Mondex & Cie, headed by Guy Amon and Stephane Sorlat, is moving into TV drama production with its first project, “Revolving Doors.”

Lead-produced by Spain’s Numerica Films, with Mondex on board as its French co-producer “Picasso” takes a large step towards production, scheduled for fall 2016. Mondex and Numerica have opened conversations with various sales companies, said Sorlat.

A portrait of genius at work and in love, “33 Days” captures Picasso reacting to The Times correspondent George Steer’s eye-witness account of the Guernica bombing, dropping another idea for a mural commissioned for the 1937 Paris World Fair and embarking with energy on Guernica.

A rapacious womanizer, Picasso is meanwhile abandoning placid longterm lover Marie-Therese Walter, »

2016 Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series

15 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quick Hits• Last Year's Winner: Jeffrey Tambor, "Transparent" • Was It an Upset? No• Still Eligible? Yes• Hot Streak: Last year marked the first time since 2008 that Jim Parsons wasn't nominated in this category. And he'd won four of the last five.• Fun Fact: Despite its unbeatable track record as an Emmys magnet, HBO has only won once in this category — in 2007 for Ricky Gervais in "Extras." Last year will always be a landmark in Emmys' lore, not only for Amazon's huge victories and an important moment for Lgbtq rights, but because Jeffrey Tambor won his first trophy in seven tries with great poise and an equally monumental speech. It's hard to imagine him following up with something as powerful or memorable, but he may want to start working on it now. Tambor didn't miss a step in "Transparent" Season 2, and his competition looks similarly light to last year's group. While »

Ben Affleck redefines normal in the new trailer for The Accountant

13 May 2016 7:21 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

We’ve seen Ben Affleck play many things, including everything from a bat-wielding bully in Dazed and Confused to Gotham’s dark hero himself in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Now he’s playing something we’ve never seen him play before: a killer math savant.

The first trailer for The Accountant was just released, and sees Affleck playing Chris, a mathematical genius who does dealings with dangerous clients with criminal leanings. What starts off as relatively harmless desk work turns into something far more deadly as Chris becomes more and more involved with his clients.

Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, and Jeffrey Tambor star alongside Affleck as the various people in his life that get caught up in his illicit activities.

Catch The Accountant in Cineplex theatres October 14th, and watch the new trailer below.

Ben Affleck goes from Batman to accountancy - with a bit of assassination on the side...

Ben Affleck has put his Batsuit away for his next movie project, a thriller by the name of The Accountant.

This one comes from Warrior director Gavin O’Connor, and sees Affleck co-star with Anna Kendrick, J K Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor and John Lithgow. It follows the story of a seemingly mild-mannered man – an accountant, as luck would have it – who has a little bit of a sideline in, er, assassinating people.

A trailer and a synopsis for the film have been released, so let’s hand over to them. Here’s the trailer first…

Ben Affleck Becomes an Assassin in First Trailer For ‘The Accountant’

12 May 2016 7:23 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Despite being perhaps the best element of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s safe to say Ben Affleck can’t be pleased with how the superhero showdown turned out. He’ll have a bigger role on the Justice League follow-up, serving as executive producer, and in the meantime, he’s sticking with Warner Bros. for all of his currently scheduled upcoming projects. Aside from his next directorial effort Live By Night, due in 2017, this fall he’s leading The Accountant, and the first trailer has arrived.

Coming from Warrior director Gavin O’Connor, the film follows Affleck’s character as an accountant by day and an assassin by night. The first trailer, backed by Radiohead‘s “Everything in its Right Place,” has quite an effective build-up while still keeping a fair amount of mystery. Check out the trailer below for the film also starring Anna Kendrick, J. K. »

Emmy Quickie: Judith Light Dishes on ‘Transparent’ Bathtub Scene That Had Everyone Talking (Video)

12 May 2016 7:02 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The day after Judith Light‘s bathtub scene became available on Amazon, it was the talk of Hollywood. The second episode of Season 2 of “Transparent” will likely go down as one of TV’s most groundbreaking — a tall order considering the series is about a family patriarch (Jeffrey Tambor) transitioning into a woman at the age of 70. While Tambor is nothing short of spectacular, it’s Light who manages to steal the show scene after scene. In “Flicky-Flicky Thump-Thump,” Light’s character, Shelly, gets fingered in a bubble bath by Tambor’s character, Maura. “They made the bubbles and Jill came back and. »
