The biggest book of 2012 (and 2013, in all honesty) is set to become the biggest movie of 2014 as Ben Affleck and David Fincher bring Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl to theaters, and the first trailer for the film — also written by Flynn and set for release on Oct. 3 — seems to indicate everything we loved about the book remains.
And the one thing nearly everyone loathed about the book, the ending, has been changed!
Affleck stars as Nick Dunne, a seemingly loving husband who comes home one day to discover his wife, Amy Dunne (played by Rosamund Pike), is missing. But to the police, Amy’s diaries present a much darker picture of her husband, turning him into their prime suspect.
Perfectly scored to the oft-covered “She,” the trailer and song combine in an unexpectedly haunting way within the context of this atmospheric and intoxicating trailer.
Once you watch, call the tip line displayed in the trailer (855-4-Amy-Tips) for a nifty treat that will delight book fans, and new fans, alike.
Gone Girl opens Oct. 3.
