David Fincher is one of my favorite filmmakers working today, and so it’s with great joy that I greet a new batch of behind-the-scenes Gone Girl images that have landed online.  Fincher’s new film is an adaptation of the page-turner novel of the same name by author Gillian Flynn, and revolves around a man (Ben Affleck) who becomes the lead suspect when his wife (Rosamund Pike) disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary.  Fincher has always been leading the charge when it comes to innovative filmmaking techniques, and one of these new Gone Girl images shows the unique way in which he photographed an underwater scene involving Pike.  Moreover, accompanying the images are some comments from Fincher, Pike, and Affleck about the film, with the latter explaining why he thinks it’s the perfect date movie.

Hit the jump to take a look at the new Gone Girl images and comments.  The film also stars Tyler Perry, Carrie Coon, Kim DickensPatrick FugitScoot McNairyMissi PyleCasey WilsonEmily Ratajkowski, and Neil Patrick Harris.  Gone Girl will premiere at this year’s New York Film Festival, and will open nationwide on October 3rd.

gone-girl-ben-affleck-rosamund-pikeSpeaking with Empire (which also debuted the images), Fincher says Gone Girl is a date movie that will “end 15 million marriages”, while Affleck has other ideas about why it’s a good film for couples to see together:

“I actually think this is the perfect date movie, not because I think it’ll result in divorce – I think that’s just David’s fantasy – but because it’s the kind of movie that a husband and wife could talk about afterwards. I think a man and a woman would have different takes on what happens. The last time I was in a movie that I thought polarised men and women in an interesting way was Chasing Amy. That was quite some time ago.”

Pike also thinks the dramatic thriller raises interesting questions about marriage and couplehood:

“That aspect of marriage as a con game, or whatever. The idea that we perform a sort of ideal version of ourselves that the other person wants. We perhaps belie our true nature in order to perform to the ideal. David and I talked a lot about living in an age of rampant narcissism.”

Man, the wait until October 3rd is getting excruciating.  Check out the other new images below.
