Gone Girl

Whoever cut the new trailer for David Fincher's "Gone Girl" really knows what they're doing.  Not only does it evoke the thriller's almost claustrophobic tone, it paints a picture of a beautiful film, full of shadows and hidden spaces that match the dark secrets of its protagonist.  

Fincher's adaptation of Gillian Flynn's bestseller--which garnered great reviews and was in seemingly everyone's hands when it came out in 2012--is one of the most anticipated films of the fall.  Ben Affleck plays Nick Dunne, whose wife Amy (Rosamund Pike), has disappeared.  Faced with a police inquiry and an ever-intensifying media circus, Nick's facade of a perfect marriage with his wife begins to unravel, leading a captivated nation to one question: did Nick kill his wife?

The first trailer for "Gone Girl" featured Elvis Costello's "She"; the second eschews any hint of romance and pursues straight-up tension instead.  The cast looks terrific, from Affleck and Pike to other characters like Neil Patrick Harris as Amy's creepy ex-boyfriend and Lisa Banes and David Clennon as Amy's parents.  And the cinematography, from Fincher alum Jeff Cronenweth ("The Social Network," "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo") is evocative and top-notch.

Check out the full trailer below.  "Gone Girl" hits theater's October 3.
