Watch: Chilling New Trailer For David Fincher’s Murder Mystery ‘Gone Girl’ Starring Ben Affleck & Rosamund Pike

David Fincher’s done way too many grim crime thrillers centered around murder, right? There’s serial killer film “Se7en,” serial killer procedural “Zodiac,” serial killer mystery “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” and “Panic Room” and “The Game” both have elements of murder, crime and mystery. But it’s not really by conscious design.

“All you need to do is look at my filmography to know that I have no idea what people want,” Fincher told Entertainment Weekly earlier this year admitting that he may have been “too beholden to the source material,” vis a vis ‘Dragon Tattoo.’ His latest film, an adaptation of Gillian Flynn‘s murder mystery thriller, “Gone Girl,” is well, another crime thriller with a secret in it.

It’s about a man (Ben Affleck) who becomes the focus of an intense media circus after his wife (Rosamund Pike) mysteriously disappears. Perhaps like the unapologetic and unrepentant Fincher himself, his character tend to be prickly and disagreeable. And Affleck’s character in the film is a shifty, narcissistic liar, which is why he becomes a suspect. “I don’t know what ‘likable’ is. I know people who are doting parents, who give to charity, drive Priuses, all those things, who are insufferable assholes…. I like people who get shit done,” he told the magazine. Ha, fair enough.

The movie also stars an eclectic cast that includes Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit, Scoot McNairy, Boyd Holbrook, model Emily Ratajkowski and many more.

Sonically, it boasts another score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (Oscar winners for their ‘Social Network’ score, also for Fincher), and this will be their third collaboration in a row with the filmmaker. The film is also includes another creative regular Jeff Cronenweth who shot “Fight Club,” “The Social Network,” and “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” (the latter of which earned him an Oscar nomination).

So, is Fincher’s latest an Oscar contender or just another dark seedy thriller? Either way, audiences probably win. Judge for yourself with the new trailer below. 20th Century Fox releases this one on October 3rd.

Trent

This score piece started off Atticus Ross's performance at the LA Film Fest a few weeks ago, and if anything else from that performance is in the film, this will be a fantastic (and dynamic) score.

Does this trailer contain every shot from the entire film? Jeez.

Not into the "Reversal of Fortune" narrating … but obviously looking forward to it

I'm sold. Even the casting of Tyler Perry can't lead me to believe anything is wrong here. It'll be nice to see Affleck pull down some solid acting reviews before the world tries to destroy him for not being Christian Bale in 2016.

Jesus Christ looks f*cking fantastic. Really engrossing trailer. Brilliant!

@sara Have you read the book? The Amy character is complicated and could be deserving of an acting nod, if Pike's good.

Looks like a good thriller but I dont see the awards hype. Maybe score.
