A new David Fincher movie is always something to keep an eye on, and now we get our first glimpse at his upcoming Gone Girl, as tweeted by 20th Century Fox, with Ben Affleck standing in front of a poster of Rosamund Pike. It’s not the most revealing image, unless you’ve read Gillian Flynn’s novel, which the movie is based on.
Affleck plays a husband whose wife (Pike) goes missing on their fifth wedding anniversary. Inevitably the hubby becomes the primary suspect in her mysterious disappearance, with the signs of a struggle making many assume he has killed her, especially when reasons emerge as to why he might have wanted her out of they. However, as we learn more about the couple’s relationship, things become much more complex than they first appear.
The film is due out autumn 2014.
