Gone Girl
Whodunits won't get much more tantalizing than David Fincher's forthcoming "Gone Girl." Based on the best-seller by Gillian Flynn and led by Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, with a rather random batch of supporting players (Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Patrick Fugit), the mystery movie continue to parse out promo material like clues to a puzzle, and today brings another interesting bit of material.

Gone Girl, Ben Affleck
David Fincher’s done way too many grim crime thrillers centered around murder, right? There’s serial killer film “Se7en,” serial killer procedural “Zodiac,” serial killer mystery “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” and "Panic Room" and "The Game" both have elements of murder, crime and mystery. But it’s not really by conscious design.

Project Greenlight
First airing in the early 2000s, "Project Greenlight" ran three seasons (the first two on HBO, the third on Bravo) and turned the struggle to make it in Hollywood into a reality series style event. But a bit classier than the stuff you see now. And the results were interesting, with the show—that follows a first time filmmaker through the steps of making their debut feature—bringing the Shia LaBeouf starring "The Battle Of Shaker Heights" and the horror "Feast" (which spawned two sequels) to the masses. And now, nearly a decade after it ended, producers Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are bringing it back.

Batman Vs. Superman Ben Affleck Batman
The super heros arms race is on like it’s never been on before. Warner Bros. is trying to use their D.C. Comics properties and catch up with Marvel studios. Hell, every studio is trying to replicate their success with super team-ups of some kind. And hell, it’s working: look at “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” a storyline that teams the classic “X-Men” movie characters with the new rebooted “X-Men: First Class”-era of movie characters. That movie has easily gone on to surpass all the over X-Men movies at the box office by a huge margin ($210 million: ‘Days Of Future Past’ is on track to surpass the $700 million mark globally). So, really, why wouldn’t you try and do the same? Especially if you’re a studio suit watching the bottom line.

Kevin Smith, Batman
If we’ve learned anything at all from Zack Snyder’s upcoming “Batman Vs. Superman” movie, perhaps one of the most fascinating is that Ben Affleck is still friends with Kevin Smith. They were bros before Oscars and prestige I guess, and they still are, so that’s cool. Anyhow, Smith seems to have had the inside scoop on “Batman Vs. Superman” for some months now due to his friendship with the Academy Award winner.

Jay Roach
"The Trade" has been one of the more intriguing projects on the pile for Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. Brewing for years, and at one point threatened with a lawsuit, the project would've reteamed Affleck and Damon on the big screen, with Casey Affleck also involved as a co-writer on the script, working his brother to punch up the 2009 Black List draft by Dave Mandel. And it looks like the film is once again moving, however, with some major changes.

Gone Girl Ben Affleck
"Gone Girl" certainly has a lot of variables at play. On the one hand, it co-stars Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry, not the names you might immediately associate with a David Fincher film. On the other hand, it's based on a bestseller by Gillian Flynn (who wrote a new ending for the film), it brings Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross back to score, and the material is right in Fincher's thriller wheelhouse. The result? Well, judge for yourself, as the first trailer is here.
