[Movie Trailer] - #6 Gone Girl

The Giver by Lois Lowry

Title: Gone Girl
   Director: David Fincher
   Author: Gillian Flynn
   Release Date: October 3rd, 2014

     With his wife's disappearance having become the focus of an intense media circus, a man sees the spotlight turned on him when it's suspected that he may not be innocent.

From the Book:
     On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?


      Gone Girl is another book that I am going to have to break my lovely idea that I won't go see a movie without reading the book first. I just don't have time in this case. My TBR pile is growing and frankly I am losing the battle of work, sleep, and reading. There is light at the end of the tunnel, or what I think is light or a candle.

     From what I can tell, is that Nick's wife leaves or disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary. What makes it strange is if she left, wouldn't she have told her parents, and thus the media wouldn't have found it such an enticing story. However, that's not the case, the media is stirred up and turn on Nick as a potential killer of his wife. From the book though I get that he's not exactly all truthful, and while that may be detrimental to him, I can't say that I blame him. The media and all the attention turned on him, probably scared the crap out of him and he's just grabbing at strings. Than again Nick doesn't seem that naive.

     Now about the movie, I am not sure if Ben Affleck is who I would have cast as Nick. However, he does have that douchey, snotty look to him in the trailer. I am not sure what I expect out of Nick, mainly cause I haven't read the book, but Affleck just didn't strike me as the best choice. I could be wrong. The rest of the cast seems amazing; Rosamund Pike and Neil Patrick Harris. I want to comment more, but there just isn't much to draw on. Frankly watch the trailer.
