Gone Girl, Affleck
For a director known for perfectionism, David Fincher has been prolific lately, with his third film in four years, his adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s bestselling novel “Gone Girl,” hitting theaters later this year. As we wait to hear more great quotes from Tyler Perry, who appears in the film but had not previously heard of the director, why not scrutinize new photos (some via Empire) from the film for more clues about what happened to Amy Dunne?

Gone Girl
Can Tyler Perry please do all the interviews? The actor/writer/director/producer is an enthusiastic quote machine, who raised a lot of eyebrows a couple of days ago when he stated he had no idea who David Fincher was, nor was he familiar with his films before signing up for "Gone Girl." Moreover, he added that had he known how popular both the filmmaker and Gillian Flynn's book were, he wouldn't have signed up for a role in the movie. But in the full quote from Vulture, there is very key bit of context from Perry.

Of all the moving parts in David Fincher's upcoming mystery "Gone Girl," the spot occupied by Rosamund Pike may be the most complicated. A lot of the film's narrative revolves around her role, a victim of a crime that puts her husband on the defensive and sends the media swarming, but you never hear the character, Amy Dunne, speak. The actress reveals an interesting inspiration for her role: Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, JFK Jr's wife.

Gone Girl
It's Tyler Perry's world and Tyler Perry is living in it, according to Tyler Perry. The writer/director/actor/producer/Madea, rarely lends his talents to projects that don't involve his creative hand somewhere in the mix, and when he does, his choices range randomly from the already forgotten thriller "Alex Cross" to the blockbuster "Star Trek." But, again according to Perry, he doesn't like to sign up for high profile projects, so why "Gone Girl"? Because he had no idea who David Fincher was.

Fall Film Preview 2014
It always happens too quickly. One moment we're munching on popcorn and sucking noisily on sodas while CG humanoid turtles fight onscreen. The next moment half of us are donning our top hats and monocles and swanning off to film festivals to harrumph about the latest obscure Euro arthouse sensation, and the other half are settling in for a long few months of sorting out obvious Oscar bait from the films that may actually bait Oscar. The gear change from Summer Tentpole period to Fall Festival/Awards Season is a pretty dramatic one, so we've prepared a little survival kit.

This fall, Ben Affleck will be thrust back into the spotlight, but his prominence will have nothing to do with his humanitarian work or his role as Batman. He's the lead in David Fincher's "Gone Girl," but the director says that Affleck's experience in the limelight made him the perfect choice for a movie about a man suspected of having a role in the disappearance of his wife who subsequently faces intense media scrutiny.

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.

It's hard to believe, but in less than one month, the Venice Film Festival will kick off with Alejandro González Iñárritu’s "Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance," launching both the fest season and the awards calendar all at once. And while it's certainly a high-profile movie, and a major get for the fest, it can't be denied that the two movies every festival organizer wants this year is David Fincher's "Gone Girl" and Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice." And credit to New York Film Festival for snagging the World Premiere for both movies, but as you might guess, the reasons why they landed there versus Venice or Toronto or Telluride is complicated.
