Batman or the Joker? Anna Kendrick rocks a racy LBD with leather straps as cheeky co-star Ben Affleck squats to meet her petite height at The Accountant premiere
Ben Affleck and Anna Kendrick brought a heavy dose of Tinseltown glamour to the Hollywood premiere of their new film The Accountant at TCL Chinese Theater Monday evening.
Kendrick, 31, had tongues wagging as she stepped out in a black skirt with five horizontal belts along the front, rounding out her sexy get-up with strappy black heels.
Her costar Affleck, 44, looked every bit the A-list leading man in a sharp blue-grey three-piece suit with a maroon tie and Oxford shirt.

The Pitch Perfect star wore an off-the shoulder dress with leather straps to cinch in her waist.
Speaking to ET on the red carpet, Affleck opened up about co-parenting with his estranged wife, Jennifer Garner.
'We do our best,' he said. 'We try our best.'
The 44-year-old added that while he may be good at math in the film, that's something he cannot help the kids with.

'My areas of expertise with the kids [are] spotty at best,' he continued. 'Not homework. I only play an accountant in the movie. In real life, I'm badly wanting.'
In the Warner Bros. thriller, Affleck plays Chris Wolff, a mathematics savant whose accounting job is a cover for the real way he makes a living: crunching numbers for a lethal clientele list that includes drug cartels, arms brokers and assassins.
Wolff, who's gathered an arsenal of weapons and cash through his illicit employment, eventually crosses paths with Kendrick's character, Dana Cummings, who progressively learns of the high-stakes game the mathematician's involved in.

The Gavin O’Connor-directed movie features a strong cast, with Oscar-winning Whiplash star J.K. Simmons, two-time Oscar nominee John Lithgow, Jeffrey Tambor, Jon Bernthal and the gorgeous Cynthia Addai-Robinson.
Director O’Connor, speaking with Philly.com Sunday, said that Affleck - who directed the Oscar-winning Argo - was hands-off during production of the film, focusing on his performance in front of the cameras.

'There was never any kind of encroachment, nothing like that,' O'Connor said.
'Ben is a really talented filmmaker, and as a director, having walked in those shoes, what he does as an actor, is, he shows up and he knows his lines, he's never late.'
Despite Affleck's status in Hollywood's most rarefied air, O'Connor said the father-of-three doesn't let his ego lead the way, characterizing the current Batman as a nice guy and trusty professional.

'Ben is kind, he's generous, he knows everyone's name. He's that guy. So I don't have to worry about the lead in my movie being a pain in the a**.'
He added that the movie has a little bit of something for everyone.
'It's a thriller, it's an action film, it's a character study, and it's a puzzle movie, and there's a kind of odd little love story in there, too,' the filmmaker told the publication, crediting screenwriter Bill Dubuque for the extensive net it casts toward moviegoers.

'I remember reading it and thinking this is a high-IQ script: You have real sleight-of-hand, moving parts. It's a shell game, a mind-bender.
'And I thought, if I can do all that and give people an emotional experience, as well ... that's what I wanted to do.'
