Gone Girl

Following a pretty chilling first look at the thriller Gone Girl, based on Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel of the same name, the first trailer for the adaptation from The Social Network director David Fincher has arrived. The film tells the story of a woman (Rosamund Pike) who disappears on her fifth wedding anniversary, with all the evidence pointing to her husband Nick (Ben Affleck). And even though the film is based on the book, readers will have a surprise because Flynn wrote a new ending for the film. From the looks of this trailer, Fincher has another fantastic thriller on his hands, and we can't wait to see it. Watch!

Here's the first trailer for David Fincher's adaptation of Gone Girl, in high def on Apple:

And here's the stylish teaser poster that doesn't even include the title (via Digital Spy):

Gone Girl

Gone Girl is directed by David Fincher (of Seven, The Game, Fight Club, Zodiac, Panic Room, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo previously) and written by Gillian Flynn, based on her own best-selling novel of the same name. In a story primarily told in flashbacks, Rosamund Pike plays a wife who goes missing on her fifth wedding anniversary, and her husband (Ben Affleck) becomes the prime suspect in her disappearance. Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Scoot McNairy and Missi Pyle also star in the film which 20th Century Fox releases everywhere this fall on October 3rd.

Wow. I knew Fincher would improve upon the book's shortcomings...

lets just hope he changes the ending

Looks like he does change the ending. Here's a quote from the article above: "And even though the film is based on the book, readers will have a surprise because Flynn wrote a new ending for the film."

Thank god! I didn't notice that.

Dizmalmazes on May 18, 2014


Brilliant. Nothing short of.

Looks like another home run from Fincher. Didn't like that trailer very much but Fincher seemingly can't fail.

Jon Odishaw on Apr 14, 2014


can't fail? one word ZODIAC

One of my favorite movies let alone fincher movies

Jon Odishaw on May 11, 2014


I heard Fincher is asking Sony to cough up 10 million dollars to direct that Jobs movie, what an idiot. Any director could do that movie with a budget way under that amount.

Cocaino Weaver on Apr 14, 2014


Yes, he's the idiot. A great filmmaker. Him. Not you, some random troll on the internet. You nailed it.

IamSlave on Apr 14, 2014


So basically the argument your making is that if your a great filmmaker you can never make one mistake or idiotic decision at all in a lifetime and am being such a troll for pointing out that specific mistake! There is a word which defines people like you and it's called being a "fanboy".

Cocaino Weaver on Apr 15, 2014


I'll take "fanboy" or sad internet troll all day, any day. 🙂

Wow! Look at that intensity by Ben! He will definitely suck in his next film then.

Tey on Apr 14, 2014


Looks really damn fantastic. Really hoping it's as good as it looks. I have a feeling that from of the imagery we've seen (him smiling, him spooning his dead wife) that this will be a LOT more creepy than some of Fincher's latest, in a more surreal sense. VERY excited.

lets just hope he changes the ending like he did in his last film. pointless last time, but i'm looking forward to it this time.

Dizmalmazes on May 11, 2014


NPH! Looks fantastic.

Xerxexx on Apr 14, 2014


Gotta ask, where was he? I couldn't find a single shot of him in this...

Greg dinskisk on Apr 15, 2014


Oh I just noticed his name listed below...didn't spot him either.

Xerxexx on Apr 15, 2014


Ohhhh okay, hahahah okay. Just curious!

Greg dinskisk on Apr 15, 2014


It's about time, David. It's been a while.

Cody Thomason on Apr 14, 2014


Damn. I mean, Damn.

Quanah on Apr 14, 2014

Avi on Apr 14, 2014


Tyler Perry though ... smfh ... ROC

cabo on Apr 14, 2014


Is the book worth reading? I love the director (although I hated The Social Network) and I've always liked Ben Affleck.

SkyNet300 on Apr 15, 2014


absolutely! A must read.

Robbie on Apr 15, 2014


good book...kind of. the ending is retarded. flat out stupid that's all i can say

Dizmalmazes on May 11, 2014


I love Fincher's work but why Ben A? I just like him better behind the camera. Same face, same expression, same voice in every movie. Just not a great actor, IMO. I did like The Town and Argo but he was always my least fav character. Still, with Trent score, its another must see.

Buzzfunk on Apr 15, 2014


I'm not seeing what you're seeing in this trailer. I also don't think the measure of a great actor is how many characters she/he can play, how many voices she/he can do, but how believable they are in the role they are filling. Ben has improved a great deal in that area. I think he has proven himself. Lastly, if he is a little wooden, he would be a perfect fit for this role. Ever read the book? Ben is perfect. Besides, great directors like to work with actors who can direct. It is a collaboration. I'm sure Fincher had this is mind.

Quanah on Apr 15, 2014


Am I the only one who sees the similarities to the Scott Peterson / Laci Peterson story? Not to mention that I always thought Scott Peterson looked like a cheap knock-off of Ben Affleck. Of course, inspiration aside, it looks like an amazing movie.

Thomas Stalcup Jr on Apr 15, 2014


Looks good, but terrible song... where is Trent's music ?

Tester on Apr 15, 2014


Was that Tyler Perry? That was Tyler Perry. I'm leaving.
