‘The Accountant’ Trailer #2 Increases Intrigue, Maintains Mystery

The second trailer for The Accountant, Ben Affleck’s upcoming thriller, manages to show us a little more of the story while still keeping us at arm’s length. And just when things are feeling a little too generic, this trailer saves itself by tossing Radiohead’s “Everything In It’s Right Place” back into the fold.

Here’s the trailer:

The best thing about this second trailer is it shows off the phenomenal was of The Accountant. Ben Affleck is almost an afterthought here, when you see Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, John Lithgow (!), and Jeffrey Tambor pop up.

This looks like a rarity, the mature adult thriller in the middle of the fall. And, surprisingly, Batfleck is pretty good at mixing these sorts of films into his repertoire. Remember Gone Girl? Totally an adult movie.

The Accountant is directed by Gavin O’Connor (Warrior, Miracle, Pride and Glory) and will hit theaters October 14.
