New ‘Gone Girl’ TV Spots Mess With Your Head as First Reviews Land
'Gone Girl,' the sweeping sensation that swept numerous lists of best-selling novels, is getting ready to hit the big screen with David Fincher's highly anticipated adaptation. Ahead of the film's debut at this year's New York Film Festival, a few TV spots have landed to reveal some new footage and mess with our heads a little bit.
"Man of my dreams. This man of mine may kill me."
Starring 'Batman vs. Superman' star Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike of 'The World's End,' 'Gone Girl' is the darkly twisted tale of Nick and Amy Dunne. When Amy goes missing on the couple's fifth wedding anniversary, the investigation that follows slowly peels back the layers of deceit and reveals how imperfect their marriage actually was. With each new piece of evidence, the audience will slowly realize that Nick, the "doting husband" and "dedicated family man," might've just murdered his own wife.
What's great about the Gillian Flynn novel is how it messes with your perception and leads you to believe you've actually figured it all out before pulling the rug out from under you multiple times, and early reviews peg this as a faithful adaption. Variety's Justin Chang calls it an "intricate and richly satisfying adaptation," while James Rocchi at The Wrap says it's "that rare entertainment that rewards your intelligence instead of insulting it, that rare thriller interested in emotional wounds as much as physical ones."
'Gone Girl' will hit the NYFF before premiering in theaters on October 3.
