The first full trailer for David Fincher’s Gone Girl has arrived, along with a few posters, all of which seem designed to give us plenty of clues and up the mystery of this upcoming thriller. Plus we get our first proper look at Neil Patrick Harris in full-on creepy mode for the film.
Ben Affleck plays a husband whose wife (Rosamund 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 the way. However, as we learn more about the couple’s relationship, things become much more complex than they first appear.
Fans of the book will be interested to see how they’re going to handle telling the story in the movie version, as one of the main keys to the novel is that half of it is told in the present by the husband, with the other half being the wife’s diary’s. It’s a structure that allows it to go to unexpected places, and it’ll be fascinating to see how Fincher handles that on screen.
The film is due out autumn 2014. Take a look at the trailer and new posters below.
