Meanwhile, co-star Jesse Eisenberg has spoken briefly about his role as Superman’s arch-nemesis Lex Luthor, stating that: “They asked me if I wanted to play the part before they sent me the script. I’m not sure how it worked, but it’s something I read with the understanding that I could do the role, If I… You know, they don’t just hand the scripts out. But I really liked it on its own terms. I would do it if it was for free and it was tiny… There are some indications of how the character should behave based on the script, and then as actor makes it his or her own. »

'Batman v Superman': Jesse Eisenberg Calls Lex Luthor Complicated

11 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While the Lex Luthor character was rumored to be a part of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice story, no one was expecting Warner Bros. to cast 30-year-old Jesse Eisenberg as the iconic villain back in January. With production on the DC superhero adventure still ongoing, Total Film caught up with Jesse Eisenberg, who revealed he didn't take on this iconic role for just a paycheck. In fact, he would have taken on the role for free.

"My father always cautions me against thinking of something as a means to some other end, because then its irresponsible to the 'means' thing...They asked me if I wanted to play the part before they sent me the script. I'm not sure how it worked, but it's something I read with the understanding that I could do the role, If I... [stops] You know, they don't just hand the scripts out. But »

19 new images from David Fincher’s Gone Girl

11 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

David Fincher’s having a pretty good – and very productive -- run lately. This year’s Gone Girl, an adaptation of the novel Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, is the director’s third film in four years (after 2010’s The Social Network and 2011’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). Fincher is also currently producing the Kevin Spacey political drama “House of Cards,” winning an Emmy in 2013 for guesting as director. Oh, and he completely directed the “Suit & Tie” music video with Justin Timberlake and Jay-z.

Yeah, those are some very, very productive four years.

With Gone Girl heading to theatres, we have another chance at seeing how the director does adapting a beloved crime thriller. His The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, based on the novel of the same by Stieg Larsson, was a critical darling. Here’s hoping Gone Girl deserves just as many, if not more, accolades. »

11 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Like millions of readers, English actress Rosamund Pike was riveted by author Gillian Flynn's 2012 best seller, Gone Girl - in particular the exquisitely complex "girl" in the title - Amy Dunne. "She reveals a lot about the female experience, both positive and negative," Pike, who plays Amy opposite on-screen husband Ben Affleck in the upcoming film adaption, tells People. "It's why people are shocked by her, seduced by her. "She reads you better than you read yourself," Pike, 35, notes. "That can be incredibly powerful and incredibly alluring."

'Gone Girl' Photos; Ben Affleck Says It's the Perfect Date Movie

11 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the exception of a couple House of Cards episodes, David Fincher returns this fall with Gone Girl, his first directorial effort since 2011's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It is yet another thriller based on a popular novel. This time, the director is adapting the works of Gillian Flynn and he calls it the date movie that will "end 15 million marriages". Star Ben Affleck has a slightly different take on this story of a husband accused of his wife's murder after she goes missing. He, instead, believes it's the perfect date movie.

Check out three new photos featuring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike as Nick and Amy Dunne, as well as Neil Patrick Harris as Amy's ex Desi and Carrie Coon, as Nick's sister Margo. Then read on for more of what Ben Affleck has to say about this dark thriller.

Jesse Eisenberg Talks About the Psychology of Lex Luthor in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

13 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When Jesse Eisenberg was cast as Lex Luthor in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel (perhaps it’s actually a spinoff at this point considering how many new characters there are) Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, there was a lot of head scratching.  But I actually can totally see him in the role.  Leaving aside the completely arbitrary question of whether the character will have hair or not, Eisenberg has an intelligence that reads well onscreen not to mention the fact that he can really play entitled and angry.  Eisenberg recently spoke about the film and, while he couldn’t say much, what he did say makes me more confident than ever that he’s the right choice for the role.  In fact, I think his casting could potentially be the most interesting thing about the movie. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently filming in Detroit under »

Ben Affleck Calls ‘Gone Girl’ the ‘Perfect Date Movie’; New Official Images

13 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Not only is Gillian Flynn’s missing person thriller Gone Girl quite the page-turner, it’s also a fascinating book in terms of its exploration of gender roles and, in particular, relationships between men and women. It’s difficult to go into much detail without treading upon spoiler territory, but David Fincher’s upcoming film adaptation of Gone Girl looks like it could do an excellent job of bringing the novel’s power dynamics and narrative layers to the screen.

Gone Girl stars Ben Affleck as Nick Dunne, an out-of-work journalist who moves back to his small home town to care for his sick mother, bringing his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) with ...

New 'Gone Girl' Pictures, Plus David Fincher's New Commercials for 'The Gap'

13 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

David Fincher tells Empire his new film, Gone Girl, based on the popular Gillian Flynn novel is a date movie that will "end 15 million marriages". I can almost see him saying that with a sly little grin, attempting to make the interviewer as uncomfortable as I'm sure he hopes his audience will be watching his new thriller. The film stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike in a story about a crumbling marriage and what happens when she goes missing and suspicion falls on him. Affleck responds to Fincher's comment saying, "I actually think this is the perfect date movie, not because I think it'll result in divorce - I think that's just David's fantasy - but because it's the kind of movie that a husband and wife could talk about afterwards. I think a man and a woman would have different takes on what happens. The last time I »

14 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Gone Girl is one of my most anticipated movies of the year, due in no small part to David Fincher being one of my favorite directors in addition to the fact that I really dig Gillian Flynn’s source material.  In addition to the images that hit yesterday, we’ve got 14 new pics from the film that take us a bit further inside the established aesthetic on display in the latest trailer, but do nothing to spoil the surprises of the piece. Hit the jump to take a look at the new Gone Girl images.  The film stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Tyler Perry, Carrie Coon, Kim DickensPatrick FugitScoot McNairyMissi PyleCasey WilsonEmily Ratajkowski, and Neil Patrick Harris.  Gone Girl will premiere at this year’s New York Film Festival, and will open nationwide on October 3rd.

Gone Girl — Affleck and Pike on Whether It's a Bad Date Movie

14 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

According to Empire "an underwater scene (hence the weird headgear, which will allow properly wavy hair to be added late)"

All nine GeekTyrant articles about Gone Girl are preceded by the name the name of its director — David Fincher. We are all huge fans of his and will watch pretty much any movie he makes. Fincher told Empire that Gone Girl is a date movie that will "end 15 million marriages." I know his films can be disturbing, but if this movie ends your marriage, odds are it was heading that way already.

Ben Affleck weighs in on Fincher's statement.

"I actually think this is the perfect date movie, not because I think it'll result in divorce - I think that's just David's fantasy - but because it's the kind of movie that a husband and wife could talk about afterwards. I think a man and a woman would have different takes on what happens. »

20 New Images From 'Gone Girl' Plus Watch: 15-Minute Essay 'The Fincher Effect'

15 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For a director known for perfectionism, David Fincher has been prolific lately, with his third film in four years, his adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s bestselling novel “Gone Girl,” hitting theaters later this year. As we wait to hear more great quotes from Tyler Perry, who appears in the film but had not previously heard of the director, why not scrutinize new photos (some via Empire) from the film for more clues about what happened to Amy Dunne? The film magazine has three new stills, with only one directly from "Gone Girl" itself, an image of marital bliss (or is it?) between Ben Affleck’s Nick and Rosamund Pike’s Amy. The other two pictures are behind-the-scenes peeks, one from pre-production with Neil Patrick Harris and Carrie Coon—she plays Affleck’s sister— doing a table read, and the other finds Fincher  directing Pike in the finer subtleties of acting like a floating corpse. »

Watch 4 New Gap Commercials Directed by David Fincher

28 August 2014 5:33 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Though 2011 isn’t too terribly long ago, the wait for a new David Fincher film has been tough.  He finally has a new feature on the horizon with October’s Gone Girl, but in the midst of finalizing the Ben Affleck-fronted drama, it appears that Fincher found time to helm a new campaign of Gap commercials.  Fincher got his start in short-form filmmaking with music videos and commercials, and while he recently helmed the Justin Timberlake music video for “Suit & Tie”, he’s now taken his talents to the world of advertising with a series of pretty swell Gap ads.  Fincher’s signature aesthetic is present with a striking black-and-white atmosphere, but the overall tone of the campaign is fun and spunky, which is somewhat refreshing given the bleakness of Fincher’s last film.  They’re definitely worth your time and will likely be in heavy rotation as the fall fashion season begins. »
