The Accountant, Extraction and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

View Chris Kavan's Profile

It's going to be short and sweet this week, as there is only two releases of note - and both of them aren't going to be in theaters until 2016 (one may or may not actually make it to the theaters, but I digress). One is most likely going to be an award-season contender, the other is going to be decidedly not. This week we're looking ahead- a bit farther forward this time around, but, hey, at least we have something worth looking forward to... right?

First up is The Accountant - set in a prime awards-season spot... in 2016. The October 07 release stars Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, Jon Bernthal, J.K. Simmons, Jeffrey Tambor and John Lithgow. There are some movers and shaker here - Affleck is coming off big films like Argo and Gone Girl, Tambor has been reeving tons of accolades for Transparent and Simmons was a standout (and Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner) in Whiplash. That being said, there's not a lot to know about the film other than Gavin O'Connor (coming off the troubled shoot of Jane Got a Gun) is directing and the generic and short plot thus far is about a forensic accountant who helps some shady clients with un-cooking the books. It's, of course, a drama. It's pretty much too early to say exactly how it's going to stand up next year - but it has earned an R rating for strong violence and language throughout. Who knew accounting could be so interesting?

The other 2016 rating release of note is Extraction. Although it does not currently have a release date set for next year, considering it stars Bruce Willis, Kellan Lutz, Gina Carano and D.B. Sweeney - I'm guessing there's a better-than-average chance it will have a theatrical release. The film concerns a former CIA agent who is kidnapped by a terrorist organization. When his son learns there is no plan to rescue him, he takes it upon himself to come up with a plan and get his father back on his own. It sounds a bit flavor-of-the-week for me - a solid streaming pick, but nothing else. Extraction earns an R rating for violence, language throughout and brief sexual content/nudity.

The full ratings bulletin is below:
