LOS ANGELES: Hollywood
The Accountant premiered this week starring Ben Affleck. Hollywood was mayhem as thousands of fans and onlookers crowded the street to see the latest red carpet premiere. Who was there other than Affleck? J.K. Simmons, Anna Kendrick, John Lithgow, Cynthia Addai-Robinson and more. The ooo’s and aaa’s were present but fortunately no over the top screaming fans present. But that didn’t stop fans from wanting to get Ben Affleck’s attention for Facebook and Instagram selfies. The celebrity actor, producer, filmmaker responded with kind gratitude.
“Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a mathematics savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Using a small-town CPA office as a cover, he makes his living as a freelance accountant for dangerous criminal organizations. With a Treasury agent (J.K. Simmons) hot on his heels, Christian takes on a state-of-the-art robotics company as a legitimate client. As Wolff gets closer to the truth about a discrepancy that involves millions of dollars, the body count starts to rise.“
The movie releases October 14th and is expected to go well beyond it’s $44 million budget with respect to box office sales (click link for updates) in the near term. The after party was held nowhere nearby as fans and party goers drove across town from Hollywood to West Hollywood to celebrate.
