The “Gone Girl” Trailer is Here

April 14, 2014 / Posted by:

When I read Gone Girl, I don’t really remember who I pictured as  the main dude Nick. Maybe I pictured Three’s Company-era John Ritter. But as  Amy, I pictured Goopy Paltrow (which explains why I punched every other chapter), which is strange, because Goopy Paltrow playing an upper middle-class wife living in Missouri is like Charlize Theron playing a lesbian serial killer with double chins. But Rosamund Pike as Amy in the first trailer for Gone Girl looks pretty spot-on. And Ben Affleck as an aloof shit bag of a husband who only cares about himself is perfect, because he’s pretty much playing Ben Affleck.

But I’m shaking my head no at David Fincher using the Elvis Costello song that was used in Notting Hill. I kept waiting for Ben to stop and saying, “I’m just a boy…” And the best part of the trailer is at the 1:24 mark when Ben’s running. It’s like he’s got the wet shits in a bad way and is trying to keep his ass from exploding everywhere.
