Check out a teaser poster and footage for David Fincher's Gone Girl

Apr. 14, 2014by: Paul Shirey

Director David Fincher's next film, GONE GIRL, is set to debut a new trailer later today and in anticipation of that we have a first look at the teaser poster and a trailer tease. Starring Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Tyler Perry, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit, Scoot McNairy, Missi Pyle, Casey Wilson, Emily Ratajkowski, and Neil Patrick Harris, the upcoming thriller is based on the best-selling novel by Gillian Flynn, which promises a lot of twists and turns, including a new ending that deviates from the source (and is actually crafted by Flynn). The poster is the kind of tease you'd expect from Fincher, who is no stranger to changing it up a bit with the marketing for his films. The teaser footage is compelling enough and, if nothing else, shows that we may well have a really intriguing performance from Affleck on the way.

Here's the footage:

Here's the synopsis:

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 has everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife?

I haven't ready the book by Flynn and am hesitant to do so after hearing that they are changing the ending. While I can enjoy a good read regardless of it's cinematic adaptation, the incentive to read it really only exists as a means of knowning more about the film, so I'll be happy to just let the surprises hit me naturally with GONE GIRL. Mostly, I'm excited to see this for Fincher's involvement and even more interested to see what he does with Affleck. Fincher is known for pulling out some great performances from his actors and I expect no less with this. Here's to hoping for a cool, fun, and dark thriller for the fall...

GONE GIRL hits theaters on October 3, 2014.

Fincher can do no wrong

Fincher is easily one of the greatest directors of all time. His constant decision to feature color palettes as a means to reflect the films overall feel is just beautiful to look at.

Affleck continues to make up for the previous 10 years...

Glad to the resurgence of Affleck continue. He's been very specific in what he stars in and directs. Runner Runner may not have blown up the box office but nobody is perfect. Hopefully his involvement in Batman vs. Superman means well have a cohesive story but also great action!

But how can that squeaky-voiced Affleck possibly play the Bat?

I'm always excited for a new Fincher film. Hopefully Affleck isn't too distracting.

I got more excitement to see a new Fincher poster than I get seeing new trailers by other directors. Fincher and Nolan are going to close this year nicely.

Fucking love the marketing for Fincher's movies. Can't wait to see this. I'm also curious to see what the 6K Red Dragon camera can do. Hopefully it's so amazing that it'll silence most film elitists. Their hate towards digital is really a caveman mentality at its core. It needs to go away.

Resolution doesn't make an image look good. Red cameras have bad skin tones, and the light roll off isn't great. 6k resolution adds nothing to image quality except the post-production benefit of re-framing. I personally would choose Sony, Canon, Arri Alexa, or even a low end Blackmagic over Red any day of the week. Those cameras get far more right than Red. Red's only weapon is resolution, and resolution is a pointless war. You can only get so sharp before you start magnifying unwanted detail

Hey thanks! I'm not too tech-savvy so any info on that subject is greatly appreciated. You mentioned those other cameras which you feel are superior to the Red. Do you feel they can rival film in terms of quality? I'm not bashing film itself, mind you. I just feel that some film purists don't want to acknowledge the evolution of digital as being a serious contender for helping filmmakers tell their story at half the cost. Film is slowly becoming a novelty and filmmakers like David Fincher and

I just feel that some film purists don't want to acknowledge the evolution of digital as being a serious contender for helping filmmakers tell their story at half the cost. Film is slowly becoming a novelty and filmmakers like David Fincher and Martin Scorsese (who championed film in the past) have used other ways to share their story for audiences worldwide. Just wanted to know your thoughts on the matter.

I don't think anyone can deny how much digital has improved in just the past few years. Gravity just won best Cinematography and it was shot digitally on the Arri Alexa. In fact several of the nominees for best cinematography was shot on the Arri Alexa. So digital has certainly become an amazing tool, and some amazing stuff has been shot with it.

But film isn't a novelty by any stretch. Film has a natural organic look to it that digital does not. Film's contrast and deep rich color is

But film isn't a novelty by any stretch. Film has a natural organic look to it that digital does not. Film's contrast and deep rich color is completely unparalleled. And film naturally looks like this without color grading. Digital, on the other hand, has a very flat and milky look to it, and it relies 100% on post-production color grading to make it look good.

Here are some examples:
Here is a good video of digital before (raw footage) and after extensive color correction - [link]

Here is raw Super 16mm film without any color correction other than white balance - [link]

I read about this last year. I'm not on the Affleck wagon but David Fincher is one of my top five favorite directors. I don't miss anything with his name on it. I'm slowly growing more and more excited for this one. I can't wait to see the trailer. It just seems like another awesome dark thriller from him.
