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 Dickens, Patrick Fugit, Scoot McNairy, Missi Pyle, Casey Wilson, Emily Ratajkowski, and Neil Patrick Harris. Gone Girl will premiere at this year’s New York Film Festival, and will open nationwide on October 3rd.
