First Look: Watch A Short Scene From “Gone Girl”

I rarely go see movies in the theaters — people loudly chewing popcorn! tickets are so expensive! — but an exception will absolutely be made for “Gone Girl,” David Fincher’s adaptation of the page-turning Gillian Flynn novel. I loved the book, but was feeling a little ho-hum about the casting, especially of Ben Affleck as Nick Dunne, until this quickie clip from the movie was dropped on the internet today. In just 30 seconds, Affleck and Rosamund Pike as Amy perfectly capture the sexy but sort of off connection between the future husband and wife in their first meeting. That smile on Pike’s face says it all. “Gone Girl” hits theaters October 3.
