I feel as if I'm the only person who has been disappointed in the first trailer that's been released for GONE GIRL. I get that many are huge Fincher-philes and believe the director can do no wrong, especially when it comes to adapting hugely popular fiction to the big screen. Maybe it's because I was so utterly taken with writer Gillian Flynn's book that I don't yet see the awesomeness breaking through the kinda dour preview we've seen so far. Maybe it's because I already know how the story ends and therefore the trailer, which is trying not to give anything away, feels like a tease. I dunno. I also don't really know about the photoshoot that the gorgeous Rosamund Pike
did for the beauty issue of W magazine, where she's shown wiping away her makeup on the cover in a manner that suggests she's erasing half of her face. They could have done so much better with the actress, who strikes me as the icy blonde that Hitchcock would have worked with if he lived to these current times. It's nice that the movie is going to give Pike some more publicity though, she's definitely someone I'd like to see more of.
