— A look at what's new in theaters this week.

The Accountant (Drama, Suspense/Thriller, R, Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jean Smart) - Christian Wolff is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world's most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department's Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King, starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.

Max Steel (Action/Adventure, SciFi/Fantasy, PG-13, Starring Maria Bello, Ben Winchell, Andy Garcia, Ana Villafane, Josh Brener) - 16-year old Max McGrath has just moved to a new town - and is desperately trying to fit in - when he discovers his body can generate the universe's most powerful energy. Unbeknown to Max, a slightly rebellious and hilarious techno-organic extraterrestrial named Steel has been keeping an eye on him, hungry for his super-human energy. When they finally meet, they discover that together they form Max Steel, a superhero possessing powerful strength beyond anything in our world. These two unlikely friends soon find themselves hunted by sinister forces who want to control Max's powers, as well as an unstoppable enemy from another galaxy.

Kevin Hart: What Now? (Comedy, Documentary, R, Starring Kevin Hart, Dennis Keiffer, Richardson Jones, Ben Seaward, Jeff Baumann) - Hart takes center stage in this groundbreaking, record-setting, sold-out performance of "What Now?" filmed outdoors in front of 50,000 people at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field - marking the first time a comedian has ever performed to an at-capacity football stadium.
