First Trailer for David Fincher’s Gone Girl

Gone Girl (US One Sheet Teaser Poster)From Fox comes the first trailer for David Fincher’s Gone Girl, along with an enigmatic poster that doesn’t even resemble a movie poster. Directed by Fincher, Gone Girl is based on the best selling novel by Gillian Flynn and adapted for the screen by Flynn herself. The film stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike as Nick and Amy Dunne respectively.

On the day of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne reports that his wife Amy has gone missing. As the investigation unfolds it doesn’t take long for Nick to come under an incredible amount of media scrutiny and as secrets about the couple are unearthed, soon everyone begins to question whether or not Nick actually killed his wife.

Anyone that has read the book may be in for a few surprises, for earlier this year Flynn revealed to Entertainment Weekly (whom she previously worked for) that the film deviates from her novel and even has a different ending. The trailer also suggests that the film will ramp up the media’s role in feeding off the sorrows that people go through, cutting in glimpses of press conferences, interviews and numerous TV coverage, as well as Nick being chased by reporters and photographers.

The trailer also features an overturned ottoman, garbage inspection and a shed.

On first glance it looks like a typical missing person drama, but both the trailer and poster are cleverly done. The song used in the trailer is a fittingly eerie cover of She sung by Richard Butler of The Psychedelic Furs, of which the lyrics drop a few hints.

Eagle-eyed viewers will notice a billboard advertising the site – visiting it will take you to a promotional site. The billboard also features a phone number where one can leave tips – 1-855-4-Amy-Tips (1-855-424-98477). For those in the US, calling the number will allow you to listen to the first chapter of Flynn’s book.

The poster (by Neil Kellerhouse) is also insanely courageous for there is no title and no names (though Fox get to namedrop their news channel). Designed to turn heads and make one think what kind of film is being advertised here, there is just the tagline and ‘someone’ on a boat.

Gone Girl co-stars Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit, Sela Ward and Emily Ratajkowski. It opens in the UK and US on 3 October.
