Considering it’s an action thriller, The Accountant is probably the most boring title you can pick. And speaking of the title, I saw more guns and ammo than I did balanced budgets. Maybe the film should’ve been called “Math Savant Assassin” instead 😉

Ben Affleck plays a socially awkward small-town CPA who freelances for a criminal organization. When a young accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) notices a discrepancy involving millions of dollars, she’s dragged into his dangerous double life. Maybe she can sing an a capella song to save the day. LOL

The Accountant Movie Synopsis

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.

J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor and John Lithgow also star in the Gavin O’Connor-directed movie. The Accountant hits theaters on October 14. Check out the action-packed teaser trailer below.

For those hoping Ben Affleck playing the Caped Crusader was limited only to the upcoming ensemble Justice League films and random cameos within the DC Cinematic Universe, you’re out of luck. Warner Bros. has confirmed your biggest nightmare.

During the studio’s presentation at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, CEO Kevin Tsujihara gave credence to the long-rumored project. “We’re working with Ben Affleck on a standalone Batman movie,” he announced.

Though not confirmed, there are reports that the script was written by Affleck. There’s also word he might even direct. What next? He’s also playing Robin 😉

Would you watch another standalone Batman film? Sound off below.


It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that Ben Affleck’s new phoenix tattoo is beyond douchey. Jennifer Garner recently weighed in to Vanity Fair about her ex’s new ink.

“You know what we would say in my hometown about that? ‘Bless his heart.’ A phoenix rising from the ashes. Am I the ashes in this scenario?” she said, later adding, “I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes.”

The other Jennifer in Affleck’s past also shared her thoughts on his back tat. During J. Lo’s appearance on Watch What Happens Live, the American Idol judge played a round of “Plead The Fifth.” Given that it was her third time playing the game, the 46-year-old superstar should’ve known not to pass on the first question. Really, she couldn’t choose between her Idol colleagues who to Shag, Marry or Kill?

Naturally, Cohen had a couple of scandalous questions for the next two. He asked Lopez about Affleck’s tattoo and why Jennifer was texting during Mariah Carey’s Billboard Music Awards performance. Is there or isn’t there a feud? Check out her response to both questions below.

We have a new winner, or should I say loser.

Johnny Depp, who came in second to Adam Sandler last year, is numero uno on Forbes annual Most Overpaid Actors list. Reportedly, the once-powerful box office star’s recent flicks have returned only $1.20 for every $1 he was paid. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Denzel Washington, Channing Tatum, Christian Bale also made the embarrassing list.

The publication factors the last three films each actor starred in before June 2015. The films must’ve been released in at least 2,000 screens and not been a cameo or animated film. With two high-profile gigs next year, Alice Through The Looking Glass and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tall No Tales, Depp should find redemption.

On the flip side, Forbes reveals Chris Evans is the actor that provides the most bang for the buck. He generates a whopping $181.80 for every dollar paid. While no women landed on the dishonorable list, they occupy five of the ten slots on the Top 10 Best Actors For The Buck. Girl power folks!!! Check out both lists below and weigh in afterward.

Ben Affleck appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and brought along a new trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice with him. As expected, it’s jam-packed with action and very tense confrontations between the two titular characters. However, for me it’s Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) who steals the show as the maniacal Lex Luthor. Eisenberg goes full tilt with his performance and I love it.

Also making a splash is Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). Girl knows how to make an entrance. The Amazonian warrior joins forces with Batman and Superman to take on Doomsday. The new trailer finally gives a first look at the film’s huge villain. Definitely check out the clip below. It’s pretty darn epic.

A new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer debuts on Jimmy Kimmel Live this Wednesday, December 2. Based on an exclusive sneak peek released by Warner Bros, it’s going to be a very intense one. The tension between the titular characters is beyond palpable in the clip.

Superman (Henry Cavill) walks intensely to a chained up Batman (Ben Affleck) held in captive. Once face to face, the Man of Steel unmasks the Caped Crusader and then proceeds to toss away the mask. I can’t wait to watch this hero-on-hero battle royale.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice flies into theaters on March 25, 2016. Check out the newest clip below.

For those intensely following the breaking news coming from San Diego Comic-Con, no doubt you’ve already seen this clip. For those others, including myself, who spent the past weekend off the grid, here’s your chance to check it out.

Warner Bros. revealed the first teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in mid-April. This new one that debuted over the weekend gives a much clearer picture of what Zack Snyder has in store for us in the highly-anticipated film. And all of it looks fantastic.

The new preview gives our first look, and a substantial one at that, of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Great casting choice. She looks believable as the superheroine. Watch Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) face-off below. The action-packed movie flies into theaters on March 26, 2016.

The movie will reportedly be set after the events of Dawn of Justice and the Justice League film. A 2017 or 2018 release date is being considered.
