First Trailer for David Fincher’s GONE GIRL Starring Ben Affleck

     April 14, 2014


20th Century Fox has released the first Gone Girl trailer. Directed by David Fincher, the adaptation of the Gillian Flynn novel of the same name stars Ben Affleck as a man who becomes the lead suspect when his wife (Rosamund Pike) disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary.  This trailer continues Fincher’s streak of brilliantly repurposing songs to introduce his films to audiences (“Creep” for The Social Network and ”Immigrant Song” for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) as a rendition of Elvis Costello‘s “She” plays over a series of scenes from the dark drama that tell viewers everything may not be exactly as clear-cut as it seems.  I enjoyed Flynn’s novel and I’m incredibly eager to see how Fincher chronicles the twisted relationship between Affleck’s Nick and Pike’s Amy, and this debut trailer is an excellent mood-setter for the pic.  October cannot come fast enough.

Hit the jump to watch the Gone Girl trailer.  Tyler PerryKim DickensPatrick FugitScoot McNairyMissi PyleCasey WilsonEmily Ratajkowski, and Neil Patrick Harris also star.  Gone Girl opens October 3rd.

Here’s the official synopsis for Gone Girl:

GONE GIRL – directed by David Fincher and based upon the global bestseller by Gillian Flynn – unearths the secrets at the heart of a modern marriage. On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) reports that his beautiful wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), has gone missing. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick’s portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife?

    A brilliant trailer! Reminds me of the Dragon Tattoo trailer which ended up being an awesome movie as well.

  • Jan

    Spoiler: Madea killed Amy.

    • M-X

      You should kill yourself

      • Alexander Groes

        I think that was just a poor attempt at a joke man, calm down- I’ve read the book and that’s not the case.

      • M-X

        Just annoying. I have been spoiled before. You never no whether it is a joke or not. Glad that it is not the case.

      • ʝoe ßloggs

        If you’re that paranoid, why do you even come to a site like this let alone read the comments section? Wishing someone to die for a comment about a movie is just not right.

      • LEM

        It’s such a waste of a wish too.

      • Jan

        Wow, I’m just referring to Tyler Perry doing something else than his usual Madea-shtick, but okay…

      • M-X

        Well, knowing the film is based on a book it is pretty hard to know you intentions.

    Ooohh exciting. I regret reading the wikipedia page to this book.

    • KevinThePilgrim

      Supposedly the third act is going to be changed so maybe you didn’t spoiled the ending of the movie.

  • Charlie Brownie

    The trailer looks like classic David Fincher and considering he’s one of my favorite directors, I’m very excited to see it. Having read the book, which I enjoyed, I couldn’t be more excited especially since the author herself wrote the screenplay. It was fun to recognize several scenes from the book as well.

  • KevinThePilgrim

    This is just as I imagined everything while I was reading the book.
    Rosamund Pike, is for me, a perfect Amy.
    Hope this to be great movie (coming from Fincher that’s a sure thing)

  • doby

    I’m hoping/assuming that the shot of Pike’s seemingly lifeless body in the water isn’t a spoiler..

    • goodmanw

      It’s not. Nothing is ever as it seems in GONE GIRL.

    • Parking Peter

      I can’t recall a scene like that in the book but it’s definitely not a spoiler for sure.

    • pkh

      it could be even a dream or imagination

  • Bloost

    Happy Witherspoon didn’t get the part.

    • milo

      “Happy Witherspoon” sounds like the name of an Adam Sandler character.

  • Strong Enough

    the fuck did i just watch


    looks great

  • George

    Why would they change the ending? It was perfect in the book, and it could be powerful in the movie!

    • milo

      Not only was it horrible in the book, it wasn’t really an ending. It just stopped. I literally double checked my copy of the book, I was so convinced that the final pages had to be missing.

      I wish that someone else had written an ending but at least they’re not keeping the third act of the book.

    “I did not kill my wife i’m not a murderer” But you gonna kill Batman Ben!
    Yeah i know, Still not accepting.

  • Bob

    Best Picture nominee? It’s for sure on my prediction list.

  • Redjester

    Looks great.

    Affleck MIGHT actually garner a best actor nod this year.

  • welshevs75

    The cover of ‘She’ in the trailer is not Elvis Costello…it’s Richard Butler from The Psychedelic Furs.

  • Yup

    I love Fincher’s style. It’s always so precise in a way that makes me worry something horrifically violent is about to happen at any second

  • The Destroyer

    The song makes the trailer so haunting. I wasn’t excited about this movie at first because I never heard of the book, and didn’t think it sounded interesting, but this trailer has me interested now.

    • milo

      There’s a ton of potential. The book is inconsistent with an absolutely maddening ending but they’re changing that, and the strong parts of the book were very strong.


    I like Finchers style as director he knows how to keep you guessing. IDK if I will catch this at the movies but It looks good.
