Call me pessimistic if you like, but I’m starting to wonder if Fincher’s Gone Girl isn’t a little too on the nose. Let’s hope it’s just the trailer? Affleck is in fine form here, but Rosamund Pike’s voiceover is putting me off. Have a look before I say more:
So, just in case you can’t tell, it sure looks as if Affleck’s Nick Dunne killed Pike’s Amy Dunne. All the evidence and Amy’s statements and notes point to a husband being responsible for his wife’s disappearance. Obviously, it must be a setup, right? Or, is it?
Book readers, without going spoilerish, isn’t this a bit too much information? It feels like the two trailers went from one extreme to another. Here’s the first, in case you hadn’t seen it:
Gone Girl also stars Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Scoot McNairy and Sela Ward; in theaters October 3rd.
