The beautiful, brilliant, and “amazing” Amy Elliott Dunne is gone and all accusatory eyes are laser-focused on her too-handsome husband, Nick. It’s a cruel but inevitable outcome when your wife happens to go missing on your fifth wedding anniversary.
In Gone Girl, we’re left to put together the intricate pieces of the mysterious disappearance. Is Amy (Rosamund Pike) dead? Is Nick (Ben Affleck) innocent? Is it that simple? Or is it pointless to speculate since we already know that author Gillian Flynn tossed out her own third act for something completely new?
The first official trailer doesn’t tell us much (would we even want it to?). But, no one creates a thick cloud of anxiety quite like David Fincher.
Check it out after the jump.
