I finally had a chance to check out the first trailer for David Fincher’s next movie Gone Girl, based off of the novel by Gillian Flynn, who also wrote the screenplay. It stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, and Neil Patrick Harris in a drama/thriller that focuses on trying to find a woman who mysteriously disappeared on the anniversary of her wedding day.
Affleck plays the husband of Pike’s character (who is the one that went missing) and the film is focused on trying to locate her body and discover who killed or kidnapped her. In the process it looks like, of course, Affleck’s character becomes a suspect, and anyone could have committed the crime.
I think that the movie definitely looks interesting and Fincher is a proven successful director which also gives Gone Girl bonus points. I’ll probably try to read the book if any future trailers spark my interest more, but for now, Gone Girl seems like an interesting mystery movie with a great director and a solid cast.
The movie is scheduled for an October 3rd release later this year, but be sure to check back here for any updates!
