New trailer released for David Fincher's forthcoming Gone Girl. Out in October.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CrZQgIz7X4M

This is the first time i've seen any footage of the film and i think it looks like it could be a brilliant crime thriller. Really, really engrossing trailer. Could be an Oscar contender. Quite liked the score as well from Reznor and Ross.

Stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry.

That looks really good. I read the book last year and although I wasn't mad about it I think it will make a good film. Nick and Amy seem to be cast well, they look like I imagined them when reading. This makes a change as usually I don't agree with casting choices after I've read a book!

I read the book recently - loved the first half but it degenerated into absolute bilge in the second half.

Doubt that I'll bother with the film.

David Fincher is a director I rate highly, so good things are expected.

I agree about the book, but I understand changes have been made for the film (hopefully regarding the book's badly-fudged denouement).

That trailer is rather meh though. Fincher's trademark gloomy lighting seems present, but it feels uninspired.

I haven't read the book but saw the trailer in the cinema recently, and would like to see this when it comes out which I believe is 3rd October. It's on my list!

Thoroughly enjoyed the book when I read it a few months ago, so of course I'm interested to see what they do with the film. I admit, the ending seemed a bit shabby, so hopefully they'll have done something to make it much palatable.

Agree. And from the looks of the trailer everything looks spot on with the exception of Tyler Perry's casting. The fact that David Fincher and Gillian Flynn have said they're going to change the ending for the film only fills me with more hope.

I had had the book for ages but was only inspired to start reading it after I saw the film trailer, cannot wait to see this film.

If it's a serious adult drama done in the same vein as Prisoners last year then it'll be a success. If it's all style and no substance then it won't work. Knowing Fincher hopefully it won't be the latter and i'd like to see Ben Affleck's last film before we see him in Batman v Superman.

I'm looking forward to this too. From the trailer I am very intrigued at how it will play out.

Am I the only one who finds the trailer to be overly long? Seems like they are showing far too much of the story and characters in it? It looks interesting and I am a fan of Fincher's work, but I wish this trailer didn't show so much!

I'm seeing a lot of spots for it on tv now.

Yes, i do agree the trailer is longer than it needs to be.

I loved the book when I read it last year, apart from the poor ending, but I'll be interested to see how (or if) they try and replicate the he said/she said dynamic of the first half of the book, where Amy's diary entries are contrasted with the search for her after she disappears... a video diary would be really clunky, but it's that aspect of the book which was most compelling...

Very true.

Amen. Couldn't agree more.

Please keep any spoilers out of this thread! Not everyone will have read the book so i don't want to know how the book differs from the film and that includes the 'poor ending' someone mentioned.

Use some common sense people!

Do we know the UK certification rating for this yet? I expect/hope it to be a 15. It'd be a shame if they cut and chopped loads out to make it a 12A for a wider audience

For what it's worth, the film's second half is completely different from the novel so you shouldn't be that worried.

It won't be 12A. The story is too graphic and some of the subject matters raised by various characters alone are an instant 15.
