Before Ben Affleck slips on the cape and cowl as Batman for Zack Snyder’s “Batman vs. Superman” (or whatever they end up calling that movie), he may or may not have whacked his wife in David Fincher’s “Gone Girl,” an adaptation of writer Gillian Flynn’s novel of the same name. It’s a story we’ve all heard before — pretty blonde wife goes missing, husband is implicated, cops are clueless. Straight from the headlines of your local news, no? So did he do it? Well, that would be telling, and you’ll have to find out for yourself, if you’re so inclined.
In the meantime, check out the first trailer and poster for the movie below, check it outers.
GONE GIRL – directed by David Fincher and based upon the global bestseller by Gillian Flynn – unearths the secrets at the heart of a modern marriage. On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) reports that his beautiful wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), has gone missing. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick’s portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife?
Starring Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit, Carrie Coon, and David Clennon.
The girl gets gone this October 3rd.
