Video: Everyone suspects Ben Affleck in ‘Gone Girl’ trailer

Any new David Fincher movie is an event, in my opinion. But when he adapts one of the most popular novels of the past two years, it’s a potential cultural phenomenon. And with an Oct. 3 release date, Gone Girl clearly has eyes on being in the Academy Award race.

Here’s the new trailer for the film, which makes Ben Affleck’s Nick Dunne look damn suspicious.

I haven’t read Gillian Flynn’s novel (though I intend to over the summer), but from what I’ve heard from those who have, Fincher’s interpretation looks extremely promising. Maybe I should stay away from the book, however, as Flynn reportedly changed the story’s third act significantly for her screenplay.
