CAN YOU SPOT THE CODE?
TORONTO EXPERIENTIAL ACTIVATION TRANSFORMS INTO NATIONAL ONLINE SWEEPSTAKES
OFFERING FANS THE CHANCE TO WIN $$$!
TORONTO, CANADA, October 7, 2016 – Earlier this week, a one-of-a-kind escape room activation was constructed within a mobile trailer to celebrate the upcoming theatrical release of “The Accountant.” Fans were whisked inside the Airstream and allotted eight minutes to solve a series of clues to decipher the code unlocking a safe containing $5,000. Those who escaped successfully were entered into an onsite draw for the chance to win a $5,000 getaway. Thousands of eager problem solvers tested their skills over the four day activation period.
As the onsite activation became a “must-see” attraction in the GTA, the concept has been extended nationally as a captivating online experience. Today, Warner Bros. Pictures Canada, in conjunction with Your Brand Integrated Marketing Communications Inc., has launched a mesmerizing digital escape room on Facebook featuring all-new clues and another chance to win big.
The video with the clues can be viewed here: https://www.facebook.com/WarnerBros.PicturesCanada/videos/10157636135520085/
“The Accountant” opens nationwide on Friday, October 14, 2016.
About the movie:
Oscar winner Ben Affleck (“Argo,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”) stars in the title role of “The Accountant,” from director Gavin O’Connor (“Miracle,” “Pride and Glory,” “Warrior”).
Christian Wolff (Affleck) 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 (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) 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.
“The Accountant” also stars Oscar nominee Anna Kendrick (“Up in the Air,” the “Pitch Perfect” films), Oscar winner J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash,” the “Spider-Man” films), Jon Bernthal (“Fury,” “The Wolf of Wall Street”), Jean Smart (TV’s “Fargo,” “24”), and Cynthia Addai-Robinson (“Star Trek: Into Darkness”), with Jeffrey Tambor (TV’s “Transparent,” “The Hangover” films) and two-time Oscar nominee John Lithgow (“Terms of Endearment,” “The World According to Garp”).
O’Connor directed the film from a screenplay by Bill Dubuque (“The Judge”). The film was produced by Mark Williams and Lynette Howell Taylor, with O’Connor, Jamie Patricof and Marty Ewing serving as executive producers.
The behind-the-scenes creative team includes two-time Oscar-nominated director of photography Seamus McGarvey (“Anna Karenina,” “Atonement”), production designer Keith Cunningham, Oscar-nominated editor Richard Pearson (“United 93”), costume designer Nancy Steiner, and Oscar-nominated composer Mark Isham (“Warrior,” “A River Runs Through It”).
Warner Bros. Pictures presents an Electric City Entertainment/Zero Gravity Management Production, a Gavin O’Connor Film, “The Accountant.” Opening on October 14, 2016, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
