‘Gone Girl’ Full Trailer & Teaser Posters: Happy Anniversary

Published 10 months ago by

If you think failing to receive a gift on your wedding anniversary is bad, try spending some time walking in the shoes of Nick Dunne, the protagonist of David Fincher’s upcoming thriller Gone Girl. Nick returns home on the occasion of his fifth anniversary to find that his wife, Amy Dunne, has gone missing and there are signs of a violent altercation in the house. Nicks helps lead the search for his missing wife, but his strange behavior and lies to the police soon have everyone questioning if he really cares for Amy, or if he’s the reason that she’s missing.

Gone Girl is based on the novel of the same name by Gillian Flynn, and it’s fair to say that the story runs a whole lot deeper than just answering the question of whether or not Nick murdered Amy. The first teaser trailer for Gone Girl was an intriguing showcase of Fincher’s directing talents that featured a cover of Elvis Costello’s “She” by Psychedelic Furs’ Richard Butler, but didn’t offer much in the way of plot details. Now a full trailer has been released, giving a better idea of the story at the heart of Gone Girl.

The trailer was teased yesterday with a new series of posters for Gone Girl, all featuring evidence bags containing clues that the police find during their search for Amy. Those who have read the book will have more insight into the significance of all of these items, but either way they’re a pretty chilling accompaniment to the sentiment of “Happy Anniversary.” The posters were originally released on IndieWire, Awards Daily, Huffington Post and HitFix, respectively.

“Gone Girl” is easily one of the best suspense thrillers published in recent years and it’s very exciting to see the story in the hands of a talented filmmaker like Fincher. His most recent feature film prior to this was another crime thriller, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and while it’s possible that he’ll move on to a sequel after the release of Gone Girl, it’s been a long time since we heard any news regarding The Girl Who Played With Fire.

Those who don’t already know what happens in the story, what can you piece together from these clues and what was shown in the trailer? Did Nick Dunne kill his wife, or is there another culprit at large? For those of you who do know what happens, please remember to keep the comments spoiler-free.

Gone Girl will arrive in theaters on October 3, 2014.

    • Oh for the love of god! can people who feel the need to start a arugment about some sh*t kids movie, thats not out for a million years! please take it to a more appropriate forum.

  1. Whether Ben Affleck can pull this off or not.. he fit the description in the book perfectly.

    • “I have a face you want to punch.”

  2. I never read the book, but this trailer makes me feel like the wife is the “bad guy” or in cahoots with her husband on something more sinister. I guess it was her notes that just seem too perfect in painting her husband as the bad guy. I could be way off… anyway, I’ll find out in the fall.

  3. I bet she’s alive. In this kind of movie, the wife is always alive.

    • Yeah, because the wife always survives in a David Fincher movie. “What’s in the box?”

      • “I understood that reference”

  4. Having already expressed over and over how excited I am for this I don’t really know what else to say except that this trailer was able too make me even more excited.
    I didn’t think it was possible.

  5. In the middle of reading this at the moment. I decided to get on it after I heard Fincher was directing the movie.
    He is one of my favourite directors (along with Aronofsky, Winding Refn and Kubrick) and hasn’t done a bad movie in my opinion.

    Affleck is perfect casting for this, as is Pike. The Nick Dunne of the book is an enigma of a character who’s likability flips drastically from chapter to chapter.
    It definitely has me wanting to race through to see the outcome.

    This and Interstellar are the two movies I’m most excited about for this year.
    I can’t wait for October.

  6. Looks excellent, it seems Affleck has hit some form with his movie choices of late. Looking forward to it

  7. Looking forward to this. Read GG a couple of years ago. Thought it was a dud til the second act. Once I got there I barely slept finishing it. Great work I thought.

    And now that it has a different ending written by Flynn herself (or at least approved by her?) I can’t wait to see what happens.

  8. What is that last picture? A knife? Can someone confirm please?

    • It’s a box cutter with what looks like a smidgen of blood on it.

  9. I was going to say, any spoilers from the book shouldn’t matter, SR you guys published the story about the ending being different from the book anyways after the author and Fincher reworked it to keep the surprise rolling.

    • Oh but there is a HUGE spoiler that has been kept intact. That’s what they are talking about.

  10. something about the nature of the story and the theme SCREEMS!!!!!! Oscar Pistorious. maybe it can help us understand if oscar really killed his wife.
