Christian Wolff is an intelligent young man who is really good with math and numbers. Using a CPA office as a cover, he works as an accountant for various dangerous criminal organizations. He risks exposing himself when Ray King, head of the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, begins to investigate him. To make himself look better, he takes on a legitimate client, a state-of-the-art robotics company. However, more trouble follows when an accounting clerk there notices a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. Not only that, but as Christian uncooks the books for this company he discovers something sinister and realizes things aren’t as they seem for the client he works for.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back
Release Date: October 21, 2016
Jack Reacher is back! He’s at it again uncovering more government conspiracies, or conspiracies in general. This film sees Jack Reacher work with SHIELD Agent Maria Hill Major Susan Turner. Major Turner gets arrested for an espionage charge and it’s up to Reacher to find out what’s going on. Believing she was set up, he breaks her out of jail. When he talks with Turner she informs him that her men got shot on an op they were running for her. From there on, Reacher and Turner are enveloped in discovering a bigger government conspiracy, and it’s up to both of them to right whatever wrong has been done. As the trailer says so far, Jack Reacher is not the law, so bad guys should start running, because there’s no such thing as hiding behind the law in Reacher’s book. This looks to be an action staple for the month of October.
Keeping Up With The Joneses
Release Date: October 21, 2016
Jeff and Karen Gaffney are just a normal suburban couple with perfectly normal lives, until new neighbors move in across the street. Their neighbors, the Joneses, seem a bit odd to them, or at least to Karen. She begins to suspect them for something, so she begins to follow them. When Jeff and Karen break into their house, they discover that they are government spies. Oh and of course, when the Joneses discover they know about their secret, they get involved in government conspiracy type situations. All of a sudden the Gaffney’s are not the typical, normal suburban couple anymore.
Release Date: October 28, 2016
From director Ron Howard comes the next film adaptation of another Dan Brown (The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons) novel. Robert Langdon, the famous symbologist, returns to solve another global mystery at hand, this time revolving around the painting of Dante’s Inferno. Langdon wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia, and with the help of Dr. Sienna Brooks, he hopes to recover lost memories that will help stop this global conspiracy he’s been roped into. His lost memories are the key to figuring out where inferno is, a virus created to destroy half the world’s population, so overpopulation doesn’t cause extinction. The clues are in a version of the painting of Dante’s Inferno that Langdon and Brooks found, and they must work against time before the group behind using inferno accomplishes their mission of bloodshed. This film follows up the film adaptations of The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons.
