Nearly three months ago we got our first proper taste of David Fincher’s new thriller, Gone Girl, and now comes an even more in depth look at the dramatic film thanks to a brand new trailer.
Filled with plenty of Fincher’s signature atmosphere and clever use of dark lighting and powerful camera angles, Gone Girl looks to be authentic Fincher and has an almighty cast to help him tell the chilling story. The trailer appears to give away an awful lot of the film, but I have read that those who has read the book which the film is based on explain that the trailer is anything but spoilery. It is simply a very clever marketing gimmick to get audiences interested, and the film itself will deliver plenty of twists and surprises not hinted at in the lengthy trailer. I can’t wait!
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.
