Gone Girl Review
David fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling thriller, Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike.
JANES REVIEW: Released in cinemas this week, the film is an ‘edge-of-your-seat’, thrilling tribute to an incredible book! Without giving too much away…Pike is mesmerising in an alarming manner, she is pretty flawless in depicting the character. Equally Affleck’s performance is intriguing and keeps us guessing.
A long film, but we were gripped the whole way through! And for those of you that have read it, the plot stays pretty true to the book. Full of dark twists, a brilliant and thrilling adaptation! A must see from us!
UPDATE: The brand new chilling second trailer for Gone Girl has been released! We get a first look at Neil Patrick Harris as Desi, Amy’s ex-boyfriend, who’s likely to play an integral role in the film. And Fincher ups the creepiness with a deeper look into the marriage and pieces of Amy’s journal coming to light.
Watch the brand new second trailer here…
Published in 2012 Flynn’s Gone Girl sold over 2 million copies in it’s first year.
The dark trailer is accompanied by an eerie cover of ‘She’ by Richard Butler of the Psychedelic Furs.
Nick (Affleck) is the main suspect in his wife’s, Amy (Pike), disappearance. The film appears to follow the book closely as police scramble to try to uncover the truth.
The trailer contains little dialogue but is incredibly powerful and shows what looks like Affleck on top form. It closes with the image of a ghostly Amy underwater alongside Affleck’s voiceover…
“I did not kill my wife. I am not a murderer.”
David Fincher also directed The Social Network, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and the smash TV series House of Cards.
We can not wait for this and are hoping that the Fincher, Affleck and Pike team will do the mysterious triller the justice it deserves.
Gone Girl is due for release in the UK on Oct 3
