The trailer for Ben Affleck's "Gone Girl" thriller, which is directed by David Fincher (Fight Club, Curious Case of Benjamin Button), has now been released online. Check it out below, and watch the film in theaters on October 3rd.
Plot: On a warm summer morning in Missouri, it is Nick and Amy's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick Dunne's beautiful wife disappears from their rented mansion on the Mississippi River. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media — as well as Amy's parents — Nick distributes a series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. But is he really a killer?
As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister Margo at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn't do it, where is that beautiful wife?
You and me both, brother. Still, it's not like "Se7en" and "Fight Club" are going anywhere. Even "The Game", riddled with plot holes as it is, is a mesmerizing piece, better than all of his work from the 2000s on.
I like "Zodiac" and "The Social Network" well enough, but it disappoints me that the latter, as of now, probably represents the apex of his feature films this millennium, given that they barely scratch the surface of those three 1990s offerings' greatness.
As a completist, I do on some level want to see him finish his take on the American adaptation of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" series, but that's clearly never gonna happen now.
I hope this is another progressive step for Afleck to be respected more as an actor. He is obviously a strong artist with his writing and directing receiving so many accolades. But his acting has always been thrown under the rug due I feel more what the public "thinks" of his abilities rather than actually watching and criticizing them. Matt Damon gets all the love from the public and it's his turn now. Looking forward to this :thumbsup:
Zodiac was amazing, as was Curious Case.
I've always enjoyed Fight Club but the ending I found iffy. Probably because I never fully understood what the f*ck was going on. And I know I'm not alone here haha
This looks good so I'll watch it.
And I threw on Pulp Fiction. Bored.. I've always loved the way Tarintino directed this. Especially the fact that's it's told out of order and still fits together so well.
Anyway, for more than fifteen years, Fincher hasn't made sh*t people are willing to watch more than once. What a f*cking sell-out. Go make some hard-hitting, cutting edge sci-fi you f*cking idiot. You have the talent and the access. Stop wasting your gifts on sh*t like this f*cking film and that incoherent, moody Zodiac crap.
Someone should shoot Ridley Scott in the face and hire Fincher for Blade Runner 2. And cancel 'Prometheus 2: The Engineered Strike Back' because not even the Engineers can save that cinematic puddle of stinking ooze.
