Dark Places

"I was eight the night they were killed and suddenly I was famous" For those unaware, Gillian Flynn is the author behind the book turned into last year's Gone Girl adaptation by David Fincher, which caused quite a stir. This book, Dark Places, was written before Gone Girl and deals with a different story about a woman who survives her family being killed. The adaptation stars Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Chloë Moretz, Christina Hendricks and more. This was made kind of under-the-radar by French filmmaker Gilles Paquet-Brenner, and while it doesn't necessarily look bad, it does feel a little generic. Watch?

Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Gilles Paquet-Brenner's Dark Places, from Mars Distribution:

Dark Places

A woman who survived the brutal killing of her family as a child is forced to confront the events of that day by a secret society obsessed with solving notorious crimes. Dark Places is both written and directed by French filmmaker Gilles Paquet-Brenner, of the films Sarah's Key, Walled In and Gomez vs Tavarès previously. The film is adapted from Gillian Flynn's novel of the same name, written a few years before Gone Girl. The film was made independently by a number of a production companies, but has yet to premiere at any festivals. A24 will open Dark Places in the US sometime in 2015. No release date is set yet. Stay tuned.

Drama without killing, Well, that's rare these days... However, this still looks good ...

Theron looks like she is giving this her best. Still rocking that short hair from MAD MAX 4...
