Based on the global best-seller, Gone Girl is an upcoming mystery-thriller about a woman who mysteriously disappears on the day of her wedding anniversary. Starring Ben Affleck as Nick Dunne who loses his job as a journalist and uses his wife Amy’s trust fund, played by Rosamund Pike, to move the couple to his small home town and open a small bar with his twin Margo, played by Carrie Coon.
The trailer has been scored to an oft-cover of ‘She’ by Richard Butler, you may recognise it from the Elvis Costello version used in Notting Hill, giving a slightly depressing-eerily feel as it cuts between what looks like a happy-turned-sour marriage.
Fans of the book will be surprised to also learn that Gillian Flynn has rewritten the entire ending of the book for the movie. Flynn told EW (whom she used to work for) “There was something thrilling about taking this piece of work that I’d spent about two years painstakingly putting together with all its eight million LEGO pieces and take a hammer to it and bash it apart and reassemble it into a movie,”.
Gone Girl is due out in the US on 3 October.
