At the beginning of the year, word emerged that David Fincher's "Gone Girl," based on the best-seller by Gillian Flynn, would throw fans for a loop by switching up the ending. “Ben [Affleck] was so shocked by it. He would say, ‘This is a whole new third act! She literally threw that third act out and started from scratch,’” the author herself told EW at the time. But hitting a Reddit AMA today, she tempered her comments a bit.

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" 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.

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.

A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas Neil Patrick Harris
While we already have David Fincher's "Gone Girl" on alert as a possible Best Picture contender, there are some variables to consider in the Ben Affleck starring thriller, based on the bestselling book by Gillian Flynn. Notably, the casting has some interesting choices in the shape of roles for Tyler Perry and Neil Patrick Harris. And eyebrows may be further raised by the news of what sounds like a fairly intense sex scene between Harris and titular gone girl, played by Rosamund Pike.

 The 2015 Best Picture Contenders, Premature pics
The star of "Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past" and the singer from 30 Seconds Of Mars are Oscar winners, "12 Years A Slave" beat "Gravity," Adele Tazeem became the most famous non-existent person on the planet, and no one's stopped talking about selfies for about 72 hours. The streets of LA are now full of discarded The Weinstein Company interns, who haven't seen daylight for months and are only capable of saying the words "Everything you are and everything you have is 'cos of that butler." Yep, the 2013/2014 awards season has come to an end.

As the first glances are unveiled of David Fincher’s highly anticipated adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s novel “Gone Girl," there’s no question that the “Zodiac” director is up to his usual, intensely dedicated approach. An average of fifty takes per scene were reported during filming, and just this week Entertainment Weekly showed off a cover on the film that Fincher shot himself. But Flynn has remained heavily involved as well by taking screenplay duties on the adaptation, and now it appears her and Fincher are tackling a major change to the narrative together.
