Ben Affleck Is Creepy And Questionable In First Trailer For David Fincher's "Gone Girl"

The first trailer for David Fincher’s Gone Girl is out. The last bit of news about the Gillian Flynn adaptation came out months ago, so the trailer provides a helpful reminder that A. The project is still moving ahead and B. It looks quite good at this point. Ben Affleck plays Nick Dunne, whose wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary. Nick soon ends up as the primary suspect in the police investigation  and has to find his wife to prove his innocence.

The first trailer gives us very little to go on.

The new trailer emphasizes the investigation and the pressure that Affleck’s character feels as the suspicion falls squarely on him. It also seems to feature Amy’s lifeless body, meaning that Nick will face a murder investigation at some point in the film. The trailer also plays up the barrage of media attention that Nick and the investigation attract, so this will probably be a prominent subject in the film.

Ben Affleck, Gone Girl
The Gone Girl trailer delivers on mystery and suspense, but the movie might still miss the mark.

We also see a number of flashbacks. Since the book is told from two points of view – Nick in the present and Amy’s diaries in the past – it’s safe to assume that the movie will play with the retrospective p as well. However, Gillian Flynn has said that the film will not be set up in exactly the same way, so it’s still up for debate how Gone Girl will handle the flashback scenes.

Watch the Gone Girl trailer below.

The novel was adapted by Gillian Flynn herself, who has said that she wanted to explore the mysteries of marriage. With an all-star cast including Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry and Carrie Coon, Gone Girl is already gaining momentum as one of 2014’s most anticipated thrillers. The film’s USA and UK release date has been set for October 3.
