Ben Affleck in "Gone Girl"

David Fincher's thriller "Gone Girl," starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike and based on the bestselling page-turner by Gillian Flynn, will open this year's 52nd annual New York Film Festival. Variety reports that the film will bow at the fest's Opening Night Gala on September 26, a week ahead of the film's wide release on October 3.

Back in 2010, Fincher's Oscar-nominated "The Social Network" opened the fest, which is under the new management of executive director Lesli Klainberg as of this year.

"Gone Girl," like Paul Greengrass' 2013 NYFF opener "Captain Phillips," is a major Hollywood movie and not typical festival fare. But is Fincher's dark thriller about a man coping with the disappearance of his wife an Oscar contender? NYFF's Opening Night has produced Academy contenders in recent years, from "Social Network" to "Life of Pi" and "Phillips." "Gone Girl" trailer is below.
