Reports and evidence of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s marital problems are becoming louder. According to the latter PeopleAffleck moved his belongings out of their home (which they’re selling) a few weeks ago. That doesn’t sound great, but don’t worry — a source said he “seems fine.” The source also added that Affleck “is in the office every day and seems focused on his work.” That’s been the line from Affleck’s sources since this saga began: Affleck isn’t drifting away from his wife, he’s just working. About what? The Accountant 2the sequel to his 2016 action film about an accountant who becomes involved in dealing with terrorist groups.

When Affleck was not by his wife’s side at the 2024 Met Gala, which she co-chaired, a representative said he was in custody during a shooting in Los Angeles The Accountant 2. When we found out that Affleck was living separately from Lopez in Brentwood, People implied that he was only there “during the filming of his movie” The Accountant 2.” And when Affleck was absent from the red carpet for Lopez’s Netflix film Atlasagain, The Accountant 2 was the culprit. Lopez later said she wanted to “be with her children, family and close friends” when she canceled her poorly-selling world tour, but Affleck kept driving. The accountant 2. I know what you’re thinking, and I agree: this movie better be damn good!

Now I’m personally not familiar with the Accountant Cinematic Universe. I like action movies, but I don’t want to watch one about an accountant and especially not a movie where Ben Affleck, uhhh, plays a character with autism. (A lot of people apparently did — The accountant earned $155 million and is expected to air sometime this week on TNT.) Vulture’s own review said The accountant was “enjoyable enough,” which doesn’t exactly sell it for me. But if Affleck has worked so hard on the sequel that it drives a wedge into his star-crossed marriage, you can bet I’ll be in for it.

Of course, there’s a chance Affleck didn’t Actually has been laser focused The Accountant 2 because he’s having marital problems, and this could be a mid-action movie marred by off-screen issues. And that could be still be entertaining. But until told otherwise, I trust Affleck and team to deliver an absolute stunner. And if Bennifer calls two of his own accountants, then the film must be worth it.
