David Fincher is back for the opening night of the New York Film Festival with Ben Affleck-starrer "Gone Girl." What folks really care about, says Indiewire's Eric Kohn on our sixth Screen Talk podcast (now on iTunes!) is that the opening night party is returning to Tavern on the Green. 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.
