David Fincher is back for the opening night of the New York Film Festival with Ben Affleck-starrer "Gone Girl."

We talk about changes at various festivals, the movies that carry expectations as the fall award season gets under way, from Woody Allen to Zach Braff, and several movies coming out this weekend. We dig into Rupert Murdoch's attempted takeover of Time Warner.
