Broadsheet Trailer Park: The Accountant



What you may need to know:

1. Accountant Chris Wolff (Ben Affleck) leads a double life as a sleeper assassin for the world’s most dangerous criminal organisations.

2. This looks Excel-lent.

3. Sure, Batman V Superman (2016)  wasn’t great, but you can’t really fault Affleck’s take on the Dark Knight.

4. Batman will be keeping Affleck occupied for the foreseeable future. The Caped Crusader is leading two Justice League movies and will have a cameo in Suicide Squad (2016).

5. In addition, Affleck’s fourth directorial effort, Live by Night, is due in October 2017. Who’s a busy boy?

6. Broadsheet prognosis: Books will be balanced.

Release Date: November 4.

          I’m going to work it out with a pen.
          Word play. It’s my forte.

            For fox’s sake. I’m pretty good with words (self praise is no praise etc etc) but this stuff just hurts my brain. I can’t do it. Puns SCHMUNS.

            You’ve been deducted.’
            Police standing over gruesome Accountant victim:’ ‘Hmm. This was a bad debt.’
            ‘Do you do the double tap?’ ‘No. The double entry.’
            ‘Account closed.’

    …Holywood comes up with some unlikely story lines but trying to make an accountant interesting may be stretching credulity too far…

  2. Cup of tea anyone?

    Do normal accountants write on windows? What is wrong with a white board.
    or paper
    Or excel.

    What does he not also do a bit train spotting or bee keeping or a bit of knitting on the sly.
