Gone Girl Ben Affleck
As followers of the filmmaker know, David Fincher likes to have input on every aspect of films, including the marketing, and that has been true of his upcoming "Gone Girl." Back in January, Fincher snapped the EW cover photo featuring the stars of the film, Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, and he's once again played shutterbug for another magazine front.

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.

Steve Jobs David Fincher
A Steve Jobs biopic. Sony and Scott Rudin producing, Aaron Sorkin had written the script and David Fincher in the directing chair. It’s basically a dream re-team of the key principals behind “The Social Network,” which worked out swimmingly well for everyone, right?

Gone Girl Ben Affleck
What we know so far about David Fincher's "Gone Girl": it's got an explicit sex scene with Neil Patrick Harris, author Gillian Flynn helped come up with a different ending than the one in her best-selling book, and Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are back in the Fincher fold, scoring their third straight film for the director. Okay, but how has it turned out? You'll get your first taste on Monday.

Jodorowsky's Dune Poster
The grass is always greener on the other side. We always covet what we can never attain. Last week, Sony Pictures Classics' must-see documentary “Jodorowsky's Dune” opened in limited release; director Frank Pavich's funny, affectionate tale of Alejandro Jodorowsky's doomed attempt at adapting Frank Herbert's indispensable sci-fi classic for the big screen (our review). So ambitious and grand—legends like Pink Floyd, Mick Jagger, H.R. Giger, Mœbius, VFX wizard Dan O'Bannon, Salvador Dali and Orson Welles were some of the names mooted to be involved—perhaps Jodorowsky’s version was so insane it never could have really happened, or perhaps if it had, it would have been a epic fail (indeed David Lynch's version, which would eventually bring the story to the big screen in 1984, was one of that visionary director's biggest stumbles, even according to Lynch himself).

Yes, the idea of Christian Bale playing Steve Jobs in a biopic is totally inspired. But let's just make it clear: right now it's just an idea.

Steve Jobs David Fincher
"A movie about Facebook? Good luck"—that was the sentiment of many upon first hearing about "The Social Network," but they underestimated the talent involved. Featuring a crackling script by Aaron Sorkin and precise, energetic direction by David Fincher, the film was less about the actual website, and instead chronicled the genius, hubris, ambition, flaws and vision of one extraordinary person who changed the way we interact online. Now, it looks like Fincher is at it again, telling the tale of another tech titan.

It would appear that David Fincher and "Gone Girl" author Gillian Flynn have quite a thing going on. As you know, the author wrote a brand-new ending for Fincher's adaptation of her bestselling book and it looks like he's eager for them to work some more magic together.
