We’ve already gleaned the plot of Gone Girl from the earlier trailer: Questions surround a husband’s (Ben Affleck) involvement in the wake of his wife’s murder. It’s creepy, it’s based on a book that supposedly has a pretty interesting twist, and it’s David Fincher, so you know you’ll be put through the ringer before it’s resolved.

However, did you know that during this whole ride, we’re going to get a dose of Neil Patrick Harris as a creepy, possible-murderer? That’s a twist in and of itself. Check out the trailer and watch America’s sweetheart completely upend his wholesome image.

David Fincher Talks Casting Emily Ratajkowski As ‘An Alien F*ck-Doll’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/david-fincher-talks-casting-emily-ratajkowski-as-an-alien-fck-doll/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/david-fincher-talks-casting-emily-ratajkowski-as-an-alien-fck-doll/#comments Thu, 26 Jun 2014 19:11:52 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=262575 He means it as a compliment.

David Fincher has shed some light on his left field casting of Emily Ratajkowski as Ben Affleck’s young mistress in Gone Girl. The character, as described in the novel is, “an alien fuck-doll of a girl… as different from my elegant, patrician wife as could be.” Fincher was looking for someone that women would hate and men would love, but Jennifer Love Hewitt was too old for the part so…

“I was talking with Ben [Affleck], and what I wanted for the Andie role was someone who could be incredibly divisive among men and women in the audience,” Fincher told GQ. “We needed somebody where, at the moment she appears, the women are going, ‘That is unconscionable and despicable.’ And you also have the men going, ‘Yes, but…’ And so Ben said, ‘Yeah, like the girl in the ‘Blurred Lines’ video.’ ”

Well done. That is a perfect display of Ben Affleck’s penis and Ben Affleck’s mouth working well in congress with one another. It’s called TEAMwork.

‘Gone Girl’ Trailer: Did Batman Kill His Wife? http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/gone-girl-trailer-did-batman-kill-his-wife/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/gone-girl-trailer-did-batman-kill-his-wife/#comments Tue, 15 Apr 2014 15:37:58 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=261067 Tyler Perry shows up for some reason.

He might be out of work at the moment but at least David Fincher has a résumé now made stronger by this first trailer for Gone Girl. Based on the bestseller novel of the same name, the story centers on Ben Affleck as a husband presumed guilty of murdering his wife after she vanishes on their fifth wedding anniversary. Author Gillian Flynn stayed involved with the project by handling scripting and including an ending different than that in the book. The cops walking around in fields and searching for a body a la the Janie’s Got A Gun video is all Fincher. As is the weird cover of Elvis Costello’s “She.” Is that Kermit singing?

Trent Reznor And David Fincher Get The Band Back Together To Score ‘Gone Girl’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/trent-reznor-and-david-fincher-get-the-band-back-together-to-score-gone-girl/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/trent-reznor-and-david-fincher-get-the-band-back-together-to-score-gone-girl/#comments Tue, 21 Jan 2014 21:50:51 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=258858 The opening credits are going to be the best part.

By the band, I don’t mean Nine Inch Nails. I meant the Trent Reznor scoring David Fincher movies partnership will continue with Gone Girl, which means the opening credits will be really cool. Reznor will be joined by co-composer Atticus Ross to put a whole lot of whirrs and ghirrs under the images of Ben Affleck not knowing where the hell his wife is. And maybe, for a change of pace, hand claps and duck quacks? Just please think on it. (The Playlist)

David Fincher Pulls A Michael Bay, Casts ‘Blurred Lines’ Model In ‘Gone Girl’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/david-fincher-pulls-a-michael-bay-casts-blurred-lines-model-in-gone-girl/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/david-fincher-pulls-a-michael-bay-casts-blurred-lines-model-in-gone-girl/#comments Tue, 17 Sep 2013 12:03:45 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=257025 Classic Bay.

For years, Michael Bay has been accused of ripping off David Fincher’s visual style. Now, those roles are reversed as Fincher casts 2013′s most buzzworthy model in his adaptation of Gone Girl. Emily Ratajkowski broke out this summer after standing around naked in the music video for Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.” So much so that she is now being cast in roles that don’t require her to rub Carl’s Jr. all over her body.

Ratajkowski will play Andie, the coed with whom Ben Affleck‘s Nick Dunne is having an affair. When his wife goes missing, he must keep this relationship under wraps to avoid implications of guilt. Let’s hope that Fincher can resist the urge to copy Armageddon’s animal crackers scene. (The Wrap)

‘Gone Girl’ Casting Is Getting Weird http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/gone-girl-casting-is-getting-weird/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/gone-girl-casting-is-getting-weird/#comments Fri, 26 Jul 2013 15:59:34 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=256063 Super weird.

David Fincher got his wish and was able to cast his first pick for the lead role of Amy Dunne, Rosamund Pike. She’s a phenomenal choice for the role that almost seems tailor-made for her yet she’s also an unconventional choice. It’s very cool and kudos to Fincher on his vision. But, the man must be stopped.

Beyond Pike, it’s now being reported that Fincher wants Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry to join the film in unspecified roles. If I had to hazard a guess, I’d say that Harris is up for the role of Desi, a former-paramour of Amy’s, and Perry is up for… sassy black maid? Honestly, Perry is the toughest piece in this puzzle. I hope that Fincher isn’t considering him for the role of the slick lawyer hired to skew the media to help Ben Affleck‘s Nick repair his damaged image. Because that role should go to this guy:

But I suppose that’s why David Fincher’s job is being David Fincher while mine is writing about David Fincher. (THR)

Ben Affleck To Play A Maybe-Murderer In David Fincher’s ‘Gone Girl’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/ben-affleck-to-play-a-maybe-murderer-in-david-finchers-gone-girl/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/ben-affleck-to-play-a-maybe-murderer-in-david-finchers-gone-girl/#comments Thu, 11 Jul 2013 20:15:03 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=255739 Are these the eyes of a killer?

Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl was last summer’s most exciting page-turner so it was no surprise it would wind up on the big screen. However, it was originally expected to be a Reese Witherspoon film but then David Fincher got involved. Now it’s picking up some heat as Fincher has selected Ben Affleck to play the film’s lead, likable-ish maybe-murderer Nick Dunne.

The story centers around a man whose wife goes missing on their fifth wedding anniversary. All clues point to his being guilty as his story and the info in his wife’s diary (told via flashback) don’t match up. And then, things get super crazy. Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman, and Emily Blunt are being looked at to play Amy Dunne. What do you think of this casting? Can you see Affleck playing someone capable of killing? We already certainly know that he can murder a cheeseburger.

(Deadline)
