"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.

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.

Starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, the thriller tells the tale of a woman (Pike) who disappears on her fifth wedding anniversary, with all the evidence pointing to her husband Nick (the role played by Affleck). So, will this send Fincher back into Oscar contention? Or is this just a sharply executed genre flick that will provide some top shelf fall entertainment? Those questions will slowly be answered over the coming months as prognosticators weigh in on this first look, and we'll be eager to see what you say in the comments section.

Co-starring Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit, Carrie Coon and Emily Ratajkowski, "Gone Girl" opens on October 3, 2014. Fyi, the song is the trailer is cover of Elvis Costello's "She" by Richard Butler of the Psychedelic Furs. Listen to the original below.
