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.
Yesterday, Zach Snyder, director of 2016′s hotly anticipated “Batman Vs. Superman,” revealed a brand new photo of Ben Affleck as The Dark Knight. Is it just me, or does Batfleck look a little rough, like he just woke up after a three-day bender in Vegas and discovered he depleted his bank accounts playing poker all night? Oh wait, that’s just Ben Affleck’s general vibe. [Hollywood Reporter]
Yes, you still have to wait until October 3 for “Gone Girl” to be in theaters. No, it isn’t going to get any easier after watching this new trailer that dropped today. SO. EXCITED. [YouTube]
The trailer for “Gone Girl,” the bestseller by Gillian Flynn, is finally here. The David Fincher-directed big screen adaptation stars Ben Affleck is sleazy Nick and Rosamund Pike is his wife, Amy, who has suddenly gone missing. Fingers crossed, the movie will be just as suspenseful as the must-read book.
My favorite Hollywood bromance is probably between Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, who’ve been besties since well before they both won the Best Screenplay Oscar for 1997′s “Good Will Hunting.” Fifteen years later, with two marriages and a gaggle of kids between them, these Boston bros are still close enough to shit talk each other publicly for a good cause. Ben and Matt, excuse me, Matt and Ben teamed up to raise money for two charities, the Eastern Congo Initiative and Water.org, with this funny video, proving the best friendships can handle a few low blows.
I can’t stop staring at the cover of this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, featuring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike as their characters in the film adaptation of Gone Girl, the best-selling book by Gillian Flynn. Quite an evocative and macabre image if you ask me — but it perfectly captures the energy between this disturbingly compatible married couple. Cannot wait for this movie. [Entertainment Weekly]
