Nick and Amy Dunne has been married for five years – in fact, she disappears on the morning of the couple’s fifth anniversary. At first, Nick seems appropriately upset, but gradually his behaviour seems to be in conflict with his declared desire to find her. Did he kill her?
The new trailer for David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl rakes Ben Affleck’s Nick Dunn over the goals as police and the press try to figure out of he’s responsible for the disappearance of his wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike). At one point, Nick is referred to as ‘The most hated man in America!’
Check out the new trailer after the jump. Gone Girl skulks into theaters on October 3rd.
House of Cards, Netflix’s first in-house drama series, is coming to DVD, Blu-ray and UltraViolet on June 11th. The complete first season will be released by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
The acclaimed political series (with a MetaCritic.com score of 76/100) – which stars Kevin Spacey as powerful but slighted Democratic House Majority Whip Frank Underwood and Robin Wright as his wife/partner in political revenge – is based an equally well-received series of British miniseries that starred Sir Ian Richardson.
Netflix has released the first trailer for its ambitious drama series, House of Cards. Starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, the series revolves around Rep. Francis Underwood (Spacey) and his wife Claire (Wright), who will do whatever it takes to achieve their goals. Kate Mara and Cory Stoll also star. Spacey and David Fincher are Co-Executive Producers.
The series has completed two seasons (twenty episodes) and the entire first season will be available on Netflix on February 1/, 2013.
When I reviewed David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo for its theatrical release, I noted that it surprised me because it was as good as the earlier, Swedish version that made Noomi Rapace familiar to an international audience. Considering its length and the fact that it’s very much a film that should be seen in a theater, Fincher’s film plays extremely well on the much smaller screen in my living-room.
When it was released in North America, the Swedish adaptation of the Steig Larssen novel made my Favorite Fifteen list, so I was intrigued to see how the North American version would compare. I certainly didn’t it expect it to match the first one, especially when you consider the powerful performance Noomi Rapace gave as Lisbeth Salander – even with David Fincher directing.
Was I ever surprised by Fincher’s take on the story!
