Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike star in the first Gone Girl trailer
David Fincher is one of the few director’s who might be a bigger draw than any A-list star that might be appearing in his movies. So whether you’re on the Ben Affleck bandwagon or not, GONE GIRL is a must-see this fall and you can watch the first trailer for the murder mystery below. It’s tough to read too much into the trailer, so it’s unclear if this will be an Oscar contender or just another fun film from Fincher, but it definitely has my attention. And it’s way too early to make any judgment, but after watching this trailer, I’m confused why Ben Affleck is such a better actor in films he directs as opposed to films he just stars in.
On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne (Affleck) reports that his beautiful wife, Amy (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? GONE GIRL stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit, Carrie Coon and Emily Ratajkowski. The David Fincher directed film hits theaters on October 3rd.
