First look at the 'Gone Girl' Trailer

Okay, it's past 4 in the morning and moreover it's Maundy Thursday but here I am spazzing over Ben Affleck. Yes, I'm talking about the latest Gone Girl trailer (well, as evident to my title hrhr).

Am I late to the party or what? This teaser, as what other people call it (cos, yeah, it's just a montage ending with Nick Dunne saying he didn't kill his wife), apparently made waves yesterday and while I'm asleep (Slept all day. Sorry not sorry). Haha.

I seriously loved the book Gone Girl. It is something I won't put on top of my TBR mount but a certain book game with friends made me do so last year and I'm thankful I've read it. It has one sick plot, crazy twists combined with a tinge of reality. So, now when I learned that The David Fincher making the film adaptation of this Gillian Flynn book, I certainly told myself that I'm going to watch it. No matter what. (Rosamund Pike!!! Neil Patrick Harris!!!)

Now, let's talk about the trailer because that's what this post is really about.

On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne reports that his wife, Amy, has gone missing. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick's portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife? IMDb

I hit play and my first reaction was: She! What a very appropriate song. I was iffy at first, I mean, this song gained popularity in this new generation because of Elvis Costello's rendition, the one used in Notting Hill. Well, yeah, that Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts movie premiered in 1999, but no one can discount the fact that that movie is well-loved, let alone a classic. So, it got me thinking, why used a song popularized by another movie? Simple: because this movie is all about SHE. This story is all about the 'Amazing' Amy Dunne! And a quick Google research told me that the song was performed by a group called The Psychedelic Furs. If you haven't read the book, I suggest you not to read it anymore, because judging from the trailer, the movie is pretty much faithful to its novel counterpart. From that scene from 0:39, Nick Dunne's smile at 0:51, to the interview by 1:06, and the underwear! Who  dares forget the underwear at 1:10?  Perhaps one reason is because the author Gillian Flynn wrote the script for the film.
I'll tell my officemates to run this trailer in our newscasts when we come back on air by Monday.
