The Accountant Adds It Up

Ben Affleck is still a box office draw outside of the bat suit. His new thriller The Accountant opened to a chart-topping $24.7 million this weekend, reports the AP, according to studio estimates Sunday. Gavin O’Connor directed the R-rated thriller, starring Affleck as an autistic mathematician. Audiences were 58% male and gave the film an “A” CinemaScore. “The marketing for this movie showed it to be a smart action movie with Ben Affleck,” a comScore analyst tells USA Today. “That combination worked for audiences this weekend.”
