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.

Ben Affleck on what to expect from David Fincher's 'Gone Girl' -- EXCLUSIVE

As a director, Ben Affleck is three-for-three, a perfect batting average that includes Gone Baby Gone, The Town, and a Best Picture Oscar for his last film, Argo. But he’s not above picking up pointers from his own directors. To that end, Affleck is in the midst of what might be considered a Ph.D. filmmaking class on the set of Gone Girl, David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling novel about a woman who goes missing on her fifth wedding anniversary. “I truly kind of show up with a notepad,” says Affleck, who plays Nick Dunne, the husband who is suspected of his wife’s murder. “He’s the only director I’ve worked with who I felt like could do everyone else’s job as well, if not better, than they could; who is able to articulate exactly what he was thinking; and who understands the technical side of the work as much as the creative side, which is to say, a lot. I’ve learned more from David in a day or two than I have most movies I’ve spent 80 days on.” READ FULL STORY

David Fincher reportedly in talks to direct 'Gone Girl' movie

David Fincher, the man behind creepy procedurals Zodiac and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoomight be turning his camera toward Gillian Flynn‘s blockbuster 2012 novel Gone Girl.  According to Variety, the director is in early talks to tackle the project, which is being produced by Reese Witherspoon (no word yet on whether she’ll also appear in the film). Flynn’s dark mystery — about a husband dealing with his wife’s sudden disappearance — was one of 2012′s biggest (and best) novels. The author, a former Entertainment Weekly TV critic, is writing the screenplay. If Fincher does end up signing on the timing of the project is unclear, since the director is already reportedly attached to a 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea movie and might still take on Girl With the Dragon Tattoo sequel The Girl Who Played With Fire.
