Acclaimed British director, David Fincher and Academy Award Winner, Ben Affleck have been working together on Gone Girl since September of last year and we can finally take a peek of what’s been cooking at the New Regency Pictures lot.
The 1:37-minute video hit the web early Monday and many successful uploads were quickly tried to be removed from YouTube by the peeps at New Regency, until an official version of the trailer is released by the studio.
Affleck portrays a man who finds out his wife has gone missing, his desperate journey towards finding her alive, or quite possibly his arrest for the murder. The dramatic trailer is intensified by the song choice and as it gets closer to the end you have no idea how it’s going to turn out… but you know if it’s Fincher, it’s gonna be good.
“I did not kill my wife. I am not a murderer.” is the closing line for the trailer as Nick Dunne relentlessly pleads his innocence. Gone Girl is based on the novel by the same title, written by Gillian Flynn, who is also responsible for the adaptation of the script for the film.
In other David Fincher news, it was confirmed that Fight Club director will not be working on Sony’s rendition of Steve Jobs biopic, “Jobs”. As reported by Variety Magazine, the film was on discussions as Fincher wanted to team up with Aaron Sorkin, (who had finished a script based on a bio written by Walter Isaacson) and producer Scott Rudin. They had both worked on The Social Network. But Fincher wasn’t all on-board for the project and was considering other productions, so he stepped down as director. Gone Girl comes out October 3rd, and after this serious trailer, critics say it has already started some buzz going for the 2015 Academy Awards.
