Get ready for some serious chills: The new Gone Girl (in theaters October 3) trailer was just released. Based on Gillian Flynn’s bestselling novel, the film stars Ben Affleck as Nick Dunne, a man who is accused of murdering his wife, Amanda (Rosamund Pike), after she mysteriously disappears.
The trailer begins ominously with a television reporter interviewing Affleck’s character. “You’re probably the most hated man in America right now,” she says. It only gets more unsettling from there as Nick begins to be investigated by the authorities. Between his inability to show emotion, mysterious clues, and a strange appearance by one of his wife’s ex-boyfriends, this first look at the film adaptation of Flynn’s mega-popular thriller looks to be just as bone-chilling as the novel.
