As we head into the last week before the release of David Fincher’s Gone Girl, I’m torn — half of me wishing I hadn’t read Gillian Flynn’s quick read and the other half crazy with anticipation because I did. The book is a fun, crazy trip that, without spoiling anything, leaves one feeling much like you’ve just stepped off one of those superfast roller coasters — it was a fantastic ride but you also feel a little sickened.

Much has been made over whether Fincher will or won’t stick with the book’s bizarre ending, a bone of contention for even the biggest fans, and that plus the story twists is what leaves me wondering if it wouldn’t be better off (temporarily) unread. Fincher is one of those directors who really doesn’t need a famous book adaptation to get us to theaters. In the trailer and other pieces we’ve written here, the audience seems fairly evenly split (readers and non); both groups as excited as the other. Up ‘til now I’ve been encouraging people to grab the book — but maybe you shouldn’t read until after the film. For a film like this, it could be better to go in cold, saving your comparisons for afterward. While people like me will undoubtably walk in with preconceived notions of the thriller’s winding path; non-readers can just sit back and enjoy Fincher’s “nasty” ride, and isn’t that what thrillers are made for?

Since we’re all stuckwaiting for the next week or so to crawl by, take solace in a new T.V. spot, the first Trent Reznor/Atticus Ross soundtrack cut, and a few new photos.
