A few weeks ago I decided I would read the best-selling novel Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn before the film adaptation by director David Fincher, adapted for the screen by Flynn was released. The book was incredibly addictive, a really good ‘who done it’ with intriguing characters and an interesting construct. As I was reading the book I was imagining how Fincher might portray a particular scene or how intense certain moments would feel and I started really looking forward to this film.

The just-released trailer doesn’t give much away at all, but it does point to a dark, moody film. This case isn’t straight forward and I’m sure Fincher is going to throw some curve balls in there. I’m also really looking forward to hearing some more original work from composers Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor. There is no release date set in Australia at this time.
