The first U.S. trailer for Dark Places has finally arrived, featuring Charlize Theron in the latest film adaptation of one of best-selling author Gillian Flynn’s novels. Flynn also wrote the novel (and subsequent screenplay) for last year’s Gone Girl, though it doesn’t seem like Dark Places is going to be as big of a hit — the film is currently available on DirecTV almost two months ahead of its theatrical release.
If you live in France, the next Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult film you’ll see won’t be Mad Max: Fury Road — it’ll be Dark Places, the latest Gillian Flynn adaptation, which weirdly hasn’t been getting nearly as much attention as we thought it might, given the success of Gone Girl. Dark Places doesn’t have a U.S. release date yet (yeah, we have no idea), but a new clip has landed online to give you a little peek at what this new Flynn adaptation is all about.
When David Fincher’s Gone Girl became an overnight critical and box office sensation, you just know that everyone involved in Dark Places did a little dance when no one was looking. When they started production on the film adaptation of the Gillian Flynn novel of the same name, they were just making a thriller. Now, they’ve made the second movie based on a book by the woman who wrote Gone Girl. And yes, that book gets name-dropped in the first Dark Places trailer. Because why not ride that wave?
Chloe Moretz is in talks to join Charlize Theron in 'Dark Places,' one of three books by Gillian Flynn currently being adapted for the big screen.
