Missing wife Amy Dunne (Rosamund Pike) seems to be floating in a watery grave, while husband Nick (Ben Affleck) goes from preoccupied spouse to prime suspect. But while the trailer certainly ends with a jolt, it’s hardly Fincher’s creepiest. Remember, this is the guy who gave us Se7en, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Fight Club. Heck, even the trailer for The Social Network sent shivers down a spine or two.
A look back at the suspense master's ultra-cool trailers, from creepiest to chillest:
1. Panic Room
Cool music bonus: Just a lot of smashing.
2. The Social Network
Cool music bonus: A women's chorus covering Radiohead's aptly titled "Creep."
3. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Cool music bonus: Karen O singing Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross's remake of Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song."
4. Gone Girl
Ben Affleck is a nice man! Isn’t he? Wait, isn’t he?
Cool music bonus: Richard Butler from Psychedelic Furs covers Charles Aznavour's "She."
5. The Game
6. Alien 3
Cool music bonus: Trent Reznor's not-so-mellow soundtrack stylings.
Cool music bonus: Rod Stewart's "I'm Losing You."
9. Fight Club
Cool music bonus: The Pixies' "Where Is My Mind."
