New ‘Gone Girl’ Trailer: Did Ben Affleck Murder His Wife?

There comes a point in the promotional run for almost every film when it seems the studio has become so desperate to ensure box office success that they’re willing to spoil a movie’s third act to boost YouTube views. This is not the case with David Fincher. Every film he has made has been accompanied by a marketing campaign almost as stylish as the movie itself. Like the teasers at the end of a Mad Men episode, the trailers that support his work are purposely cryptic, and the latest promotional clip for Gone Girl is no exception.

Amy (Rosamund Pike) and Nick (Ben Affleck) Dunne appear to have the perfect life. That is, until Amy goes missing seemingly out of the blue. No one knew she was planning to leave, including Nick, but as the questions about her disappearance pile up so do suspicions over whether or not Nick is telling the truth. Could he know where Amy is? Could he have killed her? Watch the trailer below and decide for yourself:

The official synopsis for Gone Girl reads:

GONE GIRL – directed by David Fincher and based upon the global bestseller by Gillian Flynn – unearths the secrets at the heart of a modern marriage. On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) reports that his beautiful wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), has gone missing. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick’s portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife?

Gone Girl opens in cinemas nationwide on October 3. Comment below and let us know if you plan to catch this film in theaters.
