The hotly anticipated thriller from David Fincher, Gone Girl, has been selected to open the New York film festival. This isn’t the first time Fincher has opened the festival, kicking proceedings off in 2010 with The Social Network. The Life of Pi followed in 2012 while Captain Phillips was selected for last year’s event. The film will open the festival on Sept. 26 at Alice Tully Hall, and is set for general release on Oct. 3.

Gone GirlBen Affleck stars in 'Gone Girl'

Based on the bestselling book by Gillian Flynn, ‘Gone Girl’ tells the story of  Amy Dunne’s mysterious disappearance on the fifth anniversary of her tempestuous marriage to Mr. Affleck’s Nick Dunne, who becomes the prime suspect and a media scapegoat while he is trying to find out what happened to his missing wife. 

Flynn has penned the script in her screenwriting debut and revealed that the third act will be entirely different from the book’s controversial ending.

The second trailer for the movie was recently revealed, giving a more traditional sneak peek than the first one did. It begins with Nick being questioned about Amy’s death by a high profile TV interviewer. Amy’s ghostly voice can be heard throughout the spot while we get a first look at Neil Patrick Harris as her creepy ex-boyfriend Desi.

We haven’t had much to go on with regards to the film’s content, mainly because the story is already universally known. But Trent Reznor, who has worked with Fincher many a time, providing scores, has given as insight into what he calls a “nasty film”

“I’ve been working on it pretty much all this year on and off during the gaps, and we’ve got a good portion of the composition in good shape,” Reznor said while on break during a tour stop in Finland. “I’ve seen the film a number of times, and we’re deep into the integration part of it. I would hope by the time we leave for Soundgarden that it’s smooth sailing. And if it isn’t, there will be a studio set up in every hotel room until it is,” he explained. “It’s a much darker film than I was expecting. The book is not exactly uplifting or happy, but it’s a nasty film.” (EW)
