Watch Ben Affleck And Anna Kendrick In The New Trailer For The Accountant

9 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Warner Bros. Pictures has released a second trailer for the upcoming drama The Accountant.

Christian Wolff (Ben 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.

The film also stars Jon Bernthal (“Fury,” “The Wolf of Wall Street”), Jean Smart (TV’s “Fargo,” “24”), and Cynthia Addai-Robinson (“Star Trek: Into Darkness”), with Jeffrey Tambor (TV’s “Transparent,” “The Hangover” films »

Second Trailer For ‘The Accountant’ Finds Ben Affleck Protecting His Pockets (and Killing)

15 hours ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

He speaks! After an initial trailer which featured a wordless Ben Affleck as a brilliant man with a shady role of employment, the second trailer for Gavin O’Connor‘s The Accountant shows the titular Affleck uttering his first words. Between DC roles, this could be a solid role for Affleck to keep his acting muscles flexed and a potentially solid entry for O’Connor’s occasionally rocky career.

The new trailer also demonstrates more of the film’s cool color palette and cold, calculated cinematography by Seamus McGarvey, suggesting O’Connor is going for a more objective language, as opposed to something like Warrior. See the second trailer below, for the film which also stars J.K. SimmonsAnna KendrickJon BernthalJohn LithgowJeffrey Tambor, and Alison Wright

Ben Affleck’s The Accountant Gets A New Trailer

18 hours ago | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Before he starts bringing the Justice League together next year, Ben Affleck hits our screens in The Accountant as a math savant who helps cook the books for several major criminal organisations. The first teaser did a great job of setting up the story, and now the main trailer has come our way, showing more of the latest thriller from Warrior’s Gavin O’Connor. The main conceit is intriguing enough to get audiences in their seats, but is it a bit too hard to swallow? It was a curious little plot device when we first heard of it, but seeing more of The Accountant maybe sheds light on how far fetched and unreal it all is, no matter how serious you ply it. Thankfully, the stellar cast, including Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, John Lithgow, and Jeffery Tambor, should be enough to help see past all that. Released: 14th October (U. »

Second Trailer for 'The Accountant' with Ben Affleck & Anna Kendrick

23 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"If you do down this road, you can't go back." WB has debuted the second trailer for The Accountant, directed by Gavin O'Connor, starring Ben Affleck as a gifted mathematician who becomes an accountant for some of the world's most dangerous criminal organizations. The first trailer was fairly tame, introducing Affleck as Christian Wolff, but this new trailer is all about the suspense and the guns and the danger. With the government suddenly onto him, Wolffe tries to take on legitimate work and meets a young clerk, played by Anna Kendrick, who helps him uncook their books. The cast includes Jon Bernthal, Alison Wright, J.K. Simmons, John Lithgow, Jeffrey Tambor and Cynthia Addai-Robinson. From the looks of it, this might actually be pretty good, even though I'm not sure about where it's all going to end up. Fire it up. Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for Gavin O'Connor's The Accountant, »

We’re going to see Ben Affleck once again suited up as Batman in Suicide Squad next month, but that won’t be the last time the actor is shown kicking butt on the big screen this year. He’ll soon be seen in The Accountant, but the film will have him playing a very different type of hero.

Directed by Warrior and Jane Got A Gun helmer Gavin O’Connor, the movie features the Justice League star as a mild mannered accountant who freelances as an assassin. For further details on what to expect from The Accountant, here’s the official synopsis:

Christian Wolff (Ben 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, »

‘Pitch Perfect’ Director Jason Moore to Helm Fox’s ‘Hair Wars’ Movie

25 July 2016 11:31 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox 2000 has tapped “Pitch Perfect” director Jason Moore to helm “Hair Wars,” based on a pitch from “Fresh Off the Boat” creator and showrunner Nahnatchka Khan.

Fox 2000 won a bidding war for the project, which will be written by Khan and is based on a competition in which hair salons compete through song and dance numbers.

Moore made his directorial debut with “Pitch Perfect,” which starred Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson and grossed $115 million worldwide. That success has led to a pair of sequels.

Moore also directed last year’s “Sisters,” starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. That comedy grossed $87 million domestically and $105 million worldwide.

Khan’s “Fresh Off the Boat” has been renewed for a third season by ABC. It centers on a Taiwanese family living in the U.S. in the ’90s and stars Randall Park and Constance Wu.

Khan also created comedy “Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23. »

Max Landis Penning Pepé Le Pew Movie, Alongside Slew of Other Projects

24 July 2016 1:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Noted professional-wrestling fan, screenwriter and director Max Landis is at Comic-Con, where he’s revealed one of many new projects he’s working on: a Pepé Le Pew movie being developed by Warner Bros. The animated film will follow the lecherous skunk of “Looney Tunes” fame, whom conventional wisdom would suggest is among the cartoon characters least suited to a feature-length revival in 2016. That’s probably part of Landis’ angle.

Landis, who appeared on the panel for “Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency” — a BBC America series for which he’s lead writer and an executive producer — is also executive-producing “Channel Zero” for Syfy and writing both “Bright” for Netflix and “Deeper” for MGM.

Not to shatter the illusion, but being a celeb is a full-time beauty commitment. Even down-to-earth VIPs like Anna Kendrick and Miranda Kerr, who seem totally low-maintenance, actually have a very regimented skin-care routine.

You might think you're set with your once-monthly facial, but by Hollywood's standards, there's so much you're not doing.
