Gone Girl: First Look

Posted by The Daily Zombies Thursday, January 9, 2014

David Fincher is back with Gone Girl and courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, we have our First Look at the thriller based on the novel of the same name by Gillian Flynn, who is also serving as the screenwriter of the film. 

It has been a long time since David Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, the US adaptation of Män som hatar kvinnor (literally Men Who Hate Women), the first entry in Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy. And with the announcement of the acclaimed film-maker's return with Gone Girl, we are more than thrilled to have yet another high profile film to add to the already crowded spate fo films to expect in 2014 (and let's just not go to 2015 for now). 

Based on the best-selling thriller novel of the same name written by Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl stars Ben Affleck as Nick Dunne, a perfect husband who becomes the main suspect of a murder case when his all-too-perfect wife, Amy, as portrayed by Rosamund Pike, went missing. Also serving as the screenwriter for her print-to-screen project, Flynn has confirmed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that the film's third act will deviate from the original novel with good reason:

“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… Ben [Affleck] was so shocked by it. He would say, ‘This is a whole new third act! She literally threw that third act out and started from scratch.”

Giving fans a taste of what to expect this year, Fincher has personally went behind the lens to photographed the cover of this week's Entertainment Weekly. And it certainly is creepily awesome. Hit the jump to check out the cool image.

Here’s the official synopsis for the original novel written by Gillian Flynn:

Marriage can be a real killer.

One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time, New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn takes that statement to its darkest place in this unputdownable masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. TheChicago Tribune proclaimed that her work “draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure but nasty addiction.” Gone Girl’s toxic mix of sharp-edged wit and deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn.
On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy’s diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?
As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn’t do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?

With her razor-sharp writing and trademark psychological insight, Gillian Flynn delivers a fast-paced, devilishly dark, and ingeniously plotted thriller that confirms her status as one of the hottest writers around.

Gone Girl is set to hit the screens on October 3rd, 2014.
