GONE GIRL Teaser Drops!

I'm a pretty avid reader, but every once in a while, a book hooks me so fast that I can read it within a day. Gone Girl was the last book that did that to me. I couldn't put it down, and I wasn't alone. Almost overnight, it became THE book that everyone was reading. Of course, that means a movie adaptation was inevitable, but with this cast, director David Fincher, and the writer of the book, Gillian Flynn, also penning the film, there's hope that this will turn out well.

Here's the synopsis:
Marriage can be a real killer. On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy’s diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?

Check the trailer after the break.

This is an almost perfect trailer for this story. It's just enough to introduce you to the mystery, yet it makes you feel like something just quite isn't right in this world. I'm a tad worried that when we start getting full trailers for this, they will spoil some of the better plot points of the book, but we will wait and see. If you want to keep yourself in the dark about this film, which I suggest, then I wouldn't watch any other trailers after this one.

GONE GIRL will be released October 3, 2014, directed by David Fincher, and stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, and Kim Dickens.
