The trailer and poster for David Fincher's Gone Girl dropped today. One of the most anticipated movies of the year and placed in a prime release date for awards attention (Oct 3rd), we could be looking at our first Oscar contender, people. Starring Ben Affleck (who seemed to use his Oscar win for Argo to get himself back to being cast as a leading man in other people's movies- so much for that directing talent) and Rosamund Pike in her first lead role after many years in supporting performances (Pride and Prejudice, Die Another Day, An Education). That is if it's a lead- according to the trailer she may have a smaller part, but we'll see. It's hard to tell from this- it's going to look good at least, but all of Fincher's movies have that aspect down. This is based on the bestselling novel by Gillian Flynn, so I'm looking forward to it.

Here's the poster:
