I’ve been looking forward to David Fincher’s dark new thriller Gone Girl for a long time, and it is great to finally see some footage from the film by way of a truly unsettling trailer.
Using a rendition of Elvis Costello’s ‘She’, the trailer shows clips from the Ben Affleck starring thriller, and as the trailer progresses, so does the intensity. The music puts a real creepy edge to the proceedings, leaving the viewer slightly disorientated by the calming music, yet intensifying footage. The trailer peaks at the end as things go seriously wrong for Ben Affleck, who plays Nick Dunne, a man accused of murdering his missing wife.
Strange as the trailer is, it is extremely effective, and certainly leaves a lasting impression.
Gone Girl is directed by David Fincher, and written by Gillian Flynn. The cast includes Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Tyler Perry, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit and Carrie Coon.
Affleck and Pike will star as husband and wife, Nick and Amy Dunne, Perry as attorney Tanner Bolt, Dickens and Fugit as detectives and Coon as Affleck’s twin sister Margo.
The film is an adaptation of a story about a killer called Gone Girl, written by Gillian Flynn. Flynn wrote the first draft of the screenplay.
Gone Girl will arrive in UK cinemas on October 3rd 2014.
GONE GIRL – 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 have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife?
