As fans of the book know, Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl is filled with twists and turns that would shock even the most seasoned reader. Although plans to make the novel into a movie were initially met with apprehension, Flynn’s decision to adapt the screenplay herself and David Fincher coming on to helm the film seemed to assuage any concerns. And now, with the release of the first trailer, it looks like the high anticipation surrounding the film will only get higher.
With an October release doubt, it’s obvious this film will be playing in contention during Oscar season. I mean, it’s David Fincher, and it’s based on a bestselling book – two surefire ticks in the awards bait category. But based on our first proper look at the film via this trailer, it looks like it contains everything that made the book special – plus more.
