Ben Affleck stars in The Accountant, and the new movie is in theaters today. I have been waiting quite impatiently for this film to come out since it got announced earlier this year. You guys should know by now; I am a Ben fan! I am reading great things about his performance. I will definitely not be listening to the critics, who currently have the movie sitting at 52% on Rotten Tomatoes. Aside from stuffy critics, regular moviegoers like you and I are rating the movie much higher. Right now it’s sitting at 81% from fans, with the average rating being 4 out of 5 stars! We will check it out this weekend, and hopefully you will too.
On Monday, Ben premiered the movie in Los Angeles along with his costars Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, John Lithgow and Cynthia Addai-Robinson. He, Anna, J.K., and director Gavin O’Connor spent the past couple of weeks promoting the actioner, and now they get to sit back and see how well it does. This movie won’t bring in the huge haul that Affleck’s last outing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice did, but hopefully it will do well above its $44,000,000 budget.
If you missed much of the promotion Ben and Anna did for this movie, just make sure you watch this hilarious sketch for MTV if you can’t take the time for anything else. We all have dreams!
For the complete cast list, credits, and promotional images from the movie, check out our The Accountant page.
The Accountant is in theaters across the States and Canada today, October 14. It will be out in Brazil, Argentina and Germany on October 20, and will release in the UK, Ireland, and Sweden on November 4.
