It may be hard to think of a better-looking, more perfect couple than Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, right? Wrong! The stars of the highly anticipated mystery film Gone Girl, based on Gillian Flynn's novel, are certainly able to up the creep factor in the newest trailer just released for the movie. This one gives fans a glimpse into even more iconic scenes from the book than the first trailer, and needless to say -- this is probably a film a happy couple shouldn't be watching on Valentine's Day.
As you can see from the trailer, much of the mystery surrounding Amy Dunne's disappearance lies in what she writes of her marriage in her diary regarding her husband, Nick. Looks like Nick is pretty damn guilty, doesn't it? Book readers are fascinated with how the folks behind the film can possibly translate all the twists and turns on screen -- but since all reports indicate the film may be quite different than the book, it's easy to hope it may take on a life of its own.
Check out the brilliantly creepy voiceover for yourself:
That botched photo op! The puppet reveal! And another shot of Amy drowning! NPH being creepy! Tyler Perry?! There's so much to take in, so many clues, and the music is perfect too. On top of all of that, this trailer was teased with a few very cool-looking posters, like the one above. Here are the rest:
Happy anniversary, indeed!
As you can see, Gone Girl will be premiering on October 3, 2014. Since book fans (obviously) know how that version ends, seeing what happens at the end of the film -- and how different it may be from the original -- could be worth the cost of the ticket alone. Flynn, who wrote the screenplay, said about changing the original novel to become a movie: "Ben [Affleck] was so shocked by it. He would say, 'This is a whole new third act!' ... There was something thrilling about taking this piece of work that I’d spent about two years painstakingly putting together with all its eight million Lego pieces and take a hammer to it and bash it apart and reassemble it into a movie."
Can't wait to see what the talented Flynn and director David Fincher come up with. Hopefully the film is as good as the promotion leading up to it!
Are you excited to see Gone Girl? How do you think they'll change the third act?
