"I did not kill my wife. I am not a murderer."
has only a few lines of dialogue in this spellbinding first trailer for Gone Girl
, David Fincher's movie adaptation of Gillian Flynn's celebrated thriller. But he's in almost every frame – a husband haunted by his wife Amy's disappearance.
The trailer is almost like a dark and brooding music video, set to a Richard Butler cover of the famous Charles Aznavour song "She."
Fincher's trademark stylized gloom is everywhere, as Affleck, playing Nick Dunne, feels pressure from a growing media frenzy and from police as they begin to question his story of a blissfully happy marriage to Amy, played by Rosamund Pike.
The film opens Oct. 3.
For an extra bonus treat, you can also call the tip line shown in the trailer: (855) 4-Amy-Tips.
