The first trailer for David Fincher's Gone Girl starring Ben Affleck is here

Apr. 14, 2014by:

Ready for some pre-Batman Ben Affleck? Then theres no better place to look than David Finchers adaptation of Gillian Flynn's GONE GIRL. Im in the middle of reading the book right now so for the love of all that is holy please do not spoil it for me or anyone else. All that said, this trailer for the film is an intriguing one. Theres hardly any dialogue spoken, and She by Elvis Costello dominates the footage.

Check it out for yourself.

I did not kill my wife. I am not a murderer.

Synopsis:

A woman mysteriously disappears on the day of her wedding anniversary. Based on the novel, "Gone Girl."

GONE GIRL hits theaters on October 3, 2014.

Guess it's been said but...

Love Mr. Fincher. Hate Tyler Perry.

I am weary of his role.

Great trailer! The song makes it creepy and works well. WARNING: Tyler Perry is in the film

Another great looking story from David Fincher about murder, investigation, loss, deception, and everything else hiding in the shadows.
The song works with the clash of murder investigation and scenes between Affleck and Rosamund Pike.
I just looked on imdb.com and saw that the dreadful sell out Tyler Perry is in this. Better hold my breath.

Fincher's return to form

I love Fincher because he's a director that can take any premise in make it into something absolutely unforgettable. Although I wasn't a fan of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo playing it a bit "safe" when compared to the subject material, I am greatly anticipating Gone Girl. It's an excellent book and it's nice to hear they've changed the ending for the movie.

Fincher's last few movies have just kinda bled together for me. They're not bad at all, but they just sort of maintain his style and nothing really breaks through. I'd like to see him shake things up a bit, his Kitchen Confidential/Chef adaptation sounded awesome or even the 20000 Leagues adaptation.

holy shit

was Affleck singing that god awful song??? That threw the whole thing waaaay off. I like the idea of a manhunt with the husband in the middle but that was off-putting and I will have to wait for another trailer. Fincher is a master and Ben can bring it when he has to. Still, from this trailer, Gone Girl is no Gone Baby Gone. let the Affleck Brother Battle begin!

I read the book, so this trailer makes me curious as to how they'll handle the two-sided storyline, but if I didnt have a clue what this story was about, then I'd say this trailer was 'meh'

There is a reason why Fincher is above most directors is because he's different and refreshing.
So the music defiantly works for me because of that reason then giving us the expected dark thriller score

All I can hear is that butchered song

Elvis Costello sings "She" so beautifully, but this rendition is horrible. Ruined the trailer for me. I'm giving a green thumbs up though because I do think the movie itself looks good.

Yikes, that horrible music just killed it. It was a montage of pretty images, but any emotion to them was lost by disgusting music and mediocre Affleck.

That was an awesome trailer. The film looks great and I can't wait to see what Affleck and Fincher came up with for this one.

Excited for this film regardless but this trailer is growin on me. Maybe gives away a tad too much though I don't know. Haven't read the book.

This totally would've starred Harrison Ford if it was made 20 years ago, right?

Frantic's great! Pursued protagonist and an old-fashioned macguffin plot.

I can already see that Affleck's performance just isn't up to par with what we come to expect in a Fincher film. But I guess by Affleck standards, it's better than bad.

Teasers for Finchers films since Benjamin Button have always been like warm.

The night time photography looks spectacular, Aflecks performance looks fantastic and subtle. I expect great things from this movie, especially Ross and Reznor's score.

Well edited and certainly Fincher draws me in, but that use of music, while respectably different, DID NOT work for me at all.

Trailer is ok. I read the book and bummed The ending is going to be changed. I trust Fincher though and hopefully he will maintain the darkness of the novel but also hit on the commentary it has on marriage.
