Trivia / The Accountant

Go To

  • Sleeper Hit: The film had good word of mouth and grossed more than three times its budget. It also ended up #1 in disc and digital video rentals for the year 2017.
  • Those Two Actors: Ben Affleck and J. K. Simmons, who play Batman and Commissioner James Gordon respectively in the DC Extended Universe. This is even more noticeable because their characters in this film have kind of a similar dynamic to the classic Batman-Gordon relationship, as Wolff is a supremely trained vigilante with a secret identity who helps law enforcement (Ray King) bringing criminals to justice.
