First Trailer for David Fincher’s ‘Gone Girl’

20th Century Fox has released the trailer for their upcoming adaption of Gillian Flynn’s 2012 novel Gone Girl.  Gone Girl is directed by David Fincher, and stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, and Tyler Perry.  Gillian also wrote the script, while working closely with Fincher.  Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross will once again handle the score, making this their third collaboration with Fincher.

The trailer is light on the dialogue, but offers insight on what we can expect, without giving much away.  Gillian Flynn recently answered fan questions on Reddit, and offered some concerned fans hope that while the movie is a new interpretation, it may not stray too drastically from her original material.  She replied,

“Tell your girlfriend not to worry—those reports have been greatly exaggerated! Of course, the script has to be different from the book in some ways—you have to find a way to externalize all those internal thoughts and you have to do more with less room and you just don’t have room for everything. But the mood, tone and spirit of the book are very much intact. I’ve been very involved in the film and loved it. Working with David Fincher is pretty much the best place to start for a screenwriter. Screenwriting definitely works different parts of your brain than writing a novel. I do love that with novels, you can really sprawl out–it feels quite decadent. With screenwriting, you have to justify every choice. It’s a nice discipline, but definitely not decadent”.

It sounds like the process was fairly enjoyable, and a nice balance between the writer and director was struck.  Gone Girl looks ascetically similar to what we’ve seen recently from Fincher, and that’s a great thing.  Enjoy the trailer below, and make sure you catch Gone Girl in theaters October 3.
