The new one heading our way from David Fincher is titled ‘Gone Girl’ and it stars the polarizing Ben Affleck. Personally, I like the dude, I like his acting and most of his films but for some reason – he rubs a lot of folks the wrong way. Right or wrong it’s just how it is and you know what would shut up the naysayers quicker than anything else? A kick ass movie that’s what. Could ‘Gone Girl’ be that flick? Watch the trailer and tell me what you think:[youtube]http://youtu.be/Ym3LB0lOJ0o[/youtube]
I like what I’m seeing! Here’s the official studio line on what this one is all about:
“On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) reports that his beautiful wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), has gone missing. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick’s portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife?”
Affleck has got himself one hell of a supporting cast that includes Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Kim Dickens and Patrick Fugit. Got a while to wait on this one though. It don’t hit theaters till Oct. 8th.
