Amy Dunne of 'Gone Girl' has a creepy Pinterest account

gone-girl-01

Before Amy Dunne, the protagonist of Gillian Flynn’s novel and the upcoming film Gone Girl, went missing, she was apparently really into Pinterest. At least, that’s what a new bit of viral marketing would have us believe.

Yesterday, an account associated with the movie tweeted: “Discover who Amy Dunne was before she went missing through the pins she’s left behind at .”

Ben Affleck says tabloid scrutiny helped 'Gone Girl' performance

Ben Affleck looks distinctly ill at ease.

Portraying Nick Dunne—a man attempting to put out the dragnet for his missing-and-presumed dead wife Amy (played by British actress Rosamund Pike)—during a key scene in the adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s bestselling crime thriller Gone Girl, Affleck has swapped his usual movie star luster for, well, flop sweat. In a sequence that was screened by director David Fincher exclusively for an EW cover story hitting newsstands Friday, Affleck’s Dunne faces a candlelight vigil for Amy crawling with TV cameras, police detectives, and somber neighbors in the sequence, and he appears less like a grief-stricken husband than a shifty dude trying to seem grief-stricken.

“I may not behave the way the cameras want me to,” Affleck tells a crowd that already views him as the prime suspect. “If you need to mock somebody, mock me. But please don’t turn this investigation into a circus.”

“Where’s your wife, Nick?” responded a voice from the darkness. “What did you do to your wife?!”

Affleck, of course, knows the searing glare of the spotlight all too well, having comprised, along with J-Lo, the celebrity entity “Bennifer.” To hear him tell it, portraying a guy who’s being hounded by the press and second-guessed by a judgmental public hardly required extensive prep.

“It wasn’t something I had to do a lot of research for,” Affleck says with a weary smirk. “I knew what it was like to have the tabloid world paying attention to me and ascribing negative motivations to whatever I might be engaging in. I knew what it was to be cast in a soap opera I had no control over.”

According to Fincher, Affleck’s intimate familiarity with being misunderstood by the Fourth Estate— moreover, with “what it’s like to be hunted”—factored heavily in his casting.

“We knew we needed somebody who was charming and could be seductive, who could be a ladies man, a guy’s guy, a frat boy,” Fincher says. “But most important, [someone] who had the wits and experience of knowing that situation. The gift of having Ben Affleck is that this is a guy who knows. He knows what a lose-lose situation is and understands what’s funny about it, however sad.”

Neil Patrick Harris talks about his 'creepy' role in 'Gone Girl'

Mario-Correa-Neil-Patrick-Harris

Given that he’s known to many as the fun-loving Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother, Neil Patrick Harris may not be immediately associated with the word “creepy.” But after viewers got a peek at Harris in the role of Desi Collings in the newest Gone Girl trailer, that quickly changed.

When Harris stopped by EW Radio (SiriusXM 105), he sat down with Mario Correa to discuss his new role in David Fincher’s upcoming adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s hit novel, which is set to open the New York Film Festival. Harris, who has seen an unfinished version of the film, promises that it’s “as unsettling as the book”—though he doesn’t really get why he creeped people out in the trailer just by standing in a doorway. Regardless, Harris is very happy that he took the part, one that Fincher himself offered him over lunch.

Gone Girl will arrive in theaters October 3.

'Gone Girl' to open New York Film Festival

Gone Girl, David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling mystery thriller, will open the 52nd New York Film Festival, as first reported by Variety.

The movie stars Ben Affleck as a man who may have killed his missing wife (Rosamund Pike) after they retreat to his hometown in Missouri, following professional setbacks in New York City. Former EW TV critic Flynn wrote the screenplay, and the cast also includes Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Patrick Fugit, and Casey Wilson. READ FULL STORY

Video: Nick Dunne looks very, very guilty in new 'Gone Girl' trailer

“How was your marriage, Nick?” That’s code for “Did you kill your wife, Nick?”—the question at the center of David Fincher’s film adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl.

In a new trailer, the mystery of Amy Dunne’s (Rosamund Pike) disappearance seems to have a simple answer: Her husband did it. At least, that’s what it looks like when Nick (Ben Affleck) is labeled the most hated man in America, while voiceovers from his wife’s diary claim, “This man of mine may kill me.” Add in a first glimpse at Neil Patrick Harris as Desi Collings, Amy’s creepy ex-boyfriend, and the stage is set for an equally eerie and shocking film.

New 'Gone Girl' posters unveil some important police evidence

As fans of the book know (and moviegoers will find out), Gone Girl is all about solving a mystery. Specifically, it’s about solving the mystery of Amy Dunne’s (Rosamund Pike) disappearance.

After Amy disappears on her fifth anniversary with husband Nick (Ben Affleck), Nick becomes suspect No. 1 in the police investigation. And in new posters for the David Fincher film, we get a brief glimpse at why all signs point to Nick with a peek at some of the police evidence. So far, they’ve got a wedding photo, a scalpel, a pair of underwear, and a page from Amy’s diary.

Ben Affleck fights for his innocence in the first official 'Gone Girl' trailer -- VIDEO

Gone-Girl-EW-First-Look

The beautiful, brilliant, and “amazing” Amy Elliott Dunne is gone and all accusatory eyes are laser-focused on her too-handsome husband, Nick. It’s a cruel but inevitable outcome when your wife happens to go missing on your fifth wedding anniversary.

In Gone Girl, we’re left to put together the intricate pieces of the mysterious disappearance. Is Amy (Rosamund Pike) dead? Is Nick (Ben Affleck) innocent? Is it that simple? Or is it pointless to speculate since we already know that author Gillian Flynn tossed out her own third act for something completely new?

The first official trailer doesn’t tell us much (would we even want it to?). But, no one creates a thick cloud of anxiety quite like David Fincher.

Check it out after the jump. READ FULL STORY
