Anyway, Ben Affleck's enigmatic flick Gone Girl is beginning to make more sense. Directed by David Fincher, this might be the first surefire film of 2014 to get the Oscar buzz a-buzzin'. Fincher adopted Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel of the same name for the silver screen. Affleck assumes the role of the philandering husband of a missing, potentially murdered wife. The story follows Affleck's quest for answers that ironically makes him look like the bad guy. Whether he's to blame or not drives the fast-paced tale.
Its yet-to-be-seen footage from March's CinemaCon was billed a triumph of noir and Fincher-like tendencies (heavily guised foreshadowing and a tremendous soundtrack). Said footage will finally air tonight, but, as head-scratching as the notion of a movie trailer trailer might be, Gone Girl's certainly set the bar pretty high.
