Can't it just be October 3rd already? I already know Gone Girl will be good because I've never disliked a David Fincher movie and I love the book by Gillian Flynn. But I'm starting to be more and more convinced this will be one of Fincher's major works. For me his best stuff is Seven, Fight Club, Zodiac and The Social Network (with The Game, Panic Room, Benjamin Button and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo all being very good but not all time greats). My money is on this new one joining the upper ranks. This new TV Spot doesn't diminish any of that and focusses on the tribulations of Ben Affleck's character (be sure to check out the trailer first if you haven't seen it). Hit the jump to take a look at the new Gone Girl TV Spot. The film also stars Rosamund Pike, Tyler Perry, »

Continuing his "Gone Girl" promotional rounds, filmmaker David Fincher has given a lengthy and refreshingly honest interview with Playboy about his previous works, upcoming films and abandoned projects.
Amongst the surprising revelations? He regrets doing 1997's "The Game" and says his producer wife advised him strongly not to do it:
"In hindsight, my wife was right. We didn't figure out the third act, and it was my fault, because I thought if you could just keep your foot on the throttle it would be liberating and funny. I know what I like, and one thing I definitely like is not knowing where a movie is going. These days, though, it's hard to get audiences to give themselves over. They want to see the whole movie in a 90-second trailer."
He also spoke at length about his now axed film adaptation of Disney's "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea". Rather than focusing on how it failed, »

David Fincher fans, rejoice! With the filmmaker's “Gone Girl” opening in just a few weeks, the dedication couldn’t be more timely, and a new video compilation that pays homage to the “Se7en” director has arrived online. Edited by Daniel Silva, the nearly 17-minute tribute splices together clips from each of Fincher’s nine feature films (with the noted exception of “Alien 3”), not including his 1985 documentary, “The Beat of the Live Drum.” Watch closely—or event not so closely—and you’ll recognize scenes from “Se7en,” “The Game,” “Fight Club,” “Panic Room,” “Zodiac,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “The Social Network” and “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” VIewing snippets from each of the films back-to-back like this, it becomes easy to see what defines a Fincher film and makes his filmography unique. The importance of music, lighting, Brad Pitt and ever-flowing camera movement cannot be underplayed as »

It looks like The CW is bringing together a Prison Break reunion of sorts, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that Dominic Purcell (Blade: Trinity) has signed on to appear in the Arrow spin-off The Flash as supervillain and Rogues member Mick Rory – “a pyromaniac who finds an outlet for his obsession with fire when he teams up with Leonard Snart/Captain Cold and becomes the villain known as Heatwave.” Captain Cold is being played by Wentworth Miller, who appeared alongside Purcell as brothers Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows in Fox’s Prison Break.
The Flash premieres on the CW on Tuesday October 7th, with Grant Gustin joined in the cast by Candice Patton (The Game) as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin (Law & Order) as Detective West, Patrick Sabongui (Almost Human) as David Singh, Danielle Panabaker (Friday the 13th) as Caitlin Snow, Rick Gosnett (The Vampire Diaries) as Eddie Thawne, Broadway »

There's still more than a month left before Gone Girl comes out, and I'm scared of being spoiled on the mystery. Did Ben Affleck's character kill his wife, played by Rosamund Pike? Did Neil Patrick Harris do it? Did Scoot McNairy do it? (Did I do it?) Yet the thing is, while the trailers and a new TV spot keeps us intrigued with wonder about who done it, that's not the sole reason to be excited about this movie. No way that director David Fincher would make a movie that's just about the endpoint. He made Zodiac, after all. And even The Game and Se7en are about more than their twist endings. Gone Girl looks like a winner in part because of its cast, and in this new ad we see a little more of McNairy than we had in the past, making us curious not just...

There's still more than a month left before Gone Girl comes out, and we're already wrapped up in its mystery. Did Ben Affleck's character kill his wife, played by Rosamund Pike? Did Neil Patrick Harris do it? Did Scoot McNairy do it? (Did we do it?) Yet the thing is, while the trailers and a new TV spot keep us intrigued with wonder about whodunit, that's not the sole reason to be excited about this movie. No way that director David Fincher would make a movie that's just about the endpoint. He made Zodiac, after all. And even The Game and Se7en are about more than their twist endings.

"I'm the guy to save you from all this aweseomeness." Last night, during the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, David Fincher's murder mystery adaptation Gone Girl debuted an extended TV spot with some new footage from the film starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. It's mostly just a recut of the most recent trailer, but there's some snippets of new footage, including a brief conversation Affleck's character has with Scoot McNairy, another potential suspect in the murder in question. This is absolutely one of the titles we're excited to see this fall, and we're sure there will be Oscar nominations coming next year. Watch! Here's the extended TV spot for David Fincher's Gone Girl from 20th Century Fox: Watch the latest trailer for Gone Girl here and stay tuned for any more updates before its release.

The most recent posters for Gone Girl boldly didn't include the names of their stars, and the first teaser poster didn't even have the film's title. Now a couple more traditional posters for the film finally show star Ben Affleck and the faded face of his dead wife played by Rosamund Pike. The most recent trailer for the film from The Social Network, Fight Club and Zodiac director David Fincher was incredible, and this looks to be a big Oscar contender. The two posters are pretty much the same, but one comes from overseas while the other is a theatrical trailer for the United States. Both just feature Affleck in different poses. Look! Here's the two new posters for David Fincher's Gone Girl movie, direct from BuzzFeed / Shortlist: Watch the latest trailer for Gone Girl here and stay tuned for any more updates before its release.

‘I’m interested in films that scar’ February 96’ (Empire Magazine)
‘I’m not interested in the guy on his own, in a dark room sharpening his knives’ (Zodiac Commentary)
At the heart of David Fincher is a contradiction. Beneath his meticulous approach and need for perfection is a conflict of interest. With a history of visually striking music videos which often extend into short narrative films, Fincher’s unflinching focus on character and exploration of social agendas make him a true original. For someone defined in part by his use of darkness, that Fincher would feign indifference to those characters that exist within it is baffling. If we discount The Curious Case of Benjamin Button it becomes apparent that elsewhere, from Alien3 through to The Social Network, are pivotal characters with thematically dark undertones. So the question is, how can he be »

This October will mark the 15th anniversary of David Fincher's brilliant film Fight Club. Although Fincher had impressed audiences with Seven and also had a cult hit with The Game, he took his style to the next level with Fight Club—a daring, irreverent, and influential film that came out of Chuck Palahnuik's terrific novel. It should be noted that the book fell under the umbrella of "un-adaptable", but Fincher and screenwriter Jim Uhls made it work without losing the flavor or even much of the plot. Comic-Con has announced that Fincher, Palahniuk, and Doubleday executive editor Gerald Howard will be in attendance to talk about how they brought the book to the screen. There will also be "special guests", and while I'm sure some are already thinking about the stars, I'm wondering why Uhls isn't on the panel. Whatever the case may be, I'm going to try my best to make this. »

David Fincher’s done way too many grim crime thrillers centered around murder, right? There’s serial killer film “Se7en,” serial killer procedural “Zodiac,” serial killer mystery “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” and "Panic Room" and "The Game" both have elements of murder, crime and mystery. But it’s not really by conscious design. "All you need to do is look at my filmography to know that I have no idea what people want," Fincher told Entertainment Weekly earlier this year admitting that he may have been "too beholden to the source material," vis a vis ‘Dragon Tattoo.' His latest film, an adaptation of Gillian Flynn's murder mystery thriller, "Gone Girl," is well, another crime thriller with a secret in it. It's about a man (Ben Affleck) who becomes the focus of an intense media circus after his wife (Rosamund Pike) mysteriously disappears. Perhaps like the unapologetic and unrepentant Fincher himself, »

For those anxious to see more from David Fincher's crime thriller adaptation Gone Girl starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, tomorrow will bring a new trailer. Of course, it likely won't give much of the game away since the film doesn't arrive until October this fall. But after the first teaser trailer, we're fine if Fincher plays things close to the vest. And to follow the first teaser poster, which didn't even use the title of the film or names of its stars, we have four new teaser posters hyping up the release of the new trailer tomorrow, each showcasing a piece of important evidence from the crime scene in question. Look below! Here's the teaser posters for David Fincher's Gone Girl from IndieWire, Awards Daily, HuffPo & HitFix: Gone Girl is directed by David Fincher (of Seven, The Game, Fight Club, Zodiac, Panic Room, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, »

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “How we made City of God” — The Guardian catches up with Alice Braga and assistant director Lamartine Ferreira to get an inside look at the creation of a devastating modern masterpiece. “This was only Meirelles’s second feature film, so City of God was a turning point for him, too. He knew what he wanted, but he was never too pushy. We couldn’t shoot at Cidade de Deus, the real City of God slum, though. It was too dangerous because it was in the middle of a drug war. Instead, we shot at Cidade Alta (Higher City), a similar-looking slum, using community members as security guards because they wouldn’t let us bring our own. I don’t remember feeling unsafe at any time. Sure, some »

I enjoyed meeting the three stars from the upcoming film .The Quiet Ones. namely Sam Claflin (.The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.), Olivia Cooke (.Bates Motel.), and Jared Harris (.Sherlock Holmes: The Game of Shadows,. .Pompeii,. .Lincoln.).
The film, bearing the mark of Hammer Films, talks about extracting demonic energy or negative energy according to Professor Joseph Coupland (Harris) and he wants to do exactly just that to Jane Harper (Cooke) who has been talking about a supernatural entity named Evey. Coupland hires videographer, Brian McNeil (Claflin) to document the experiment.
I sat down with the cast to talk about their interest in making the movie, working on the set, and the age-old argument between science and the supernatural.
.The Quiet Ones. from director John Pogue arrives in theaters on Friday, April 25.
Real human beings take a certain kind of sadistic pleasure in watching fictional human beings suffer. As long as it's from a safe distance, and it's not affecting you or yours on any level, watching man turn into beast right before your very eyes could feel almost empowering. Just think about the most popular video games for a second, if all the violent movies aren't convincing enough. This type of barbarity gets upped a notch when you throw in the theme of voyeurism; not only are we watching how low some people will go, but now we're watching them being watched, controlled, and manipulated into doing some really nasty stuff. We've seen it on taut psychological display in David Fincher's “The Game,” James Wan's “Saw” begat an entire franchise on it, and more recently E.L. Katz's “Cheap Thrills” had all sorts of delirious fun with it during the festival circuit. »

Following a pretty chilling first look at the thriller Gone Girl, based on Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel of the same name, the first trailer for the adaptation from The Social Network director David Fincher has arrived. The film tells the story of a woman (Rosamund Pike) who disappears on her fifth wedding anniversary, with all the evidence pointing to her husband Nick (Ben Affleck). And even though the film is based on the book, readers will have a surprise because Flynn wrote a new ending for the film. From the looks of this trailer, Fincher has another fantastic thriller on his hands, and we can't wait to see it. Watch! Here's the first trailer for David Fincher's adaptation of Gone Girl, in high def on Apple: And here's the stylish teaser poster that doesn't even include the title (via Digital Spy): Gone Girl is directed by David Fincher (of Seven, »

Your Top Three is a series here at Movies.com where we choose a topic and you give us your top three picks. Last Friday, we lost one of the great modern "that guy" actors, James Rebhorn (The Game; Meet the Parents). I'd call him a character actor, but I don't consider him one. He wasn't the most distinct performer, neither odd in his looks nor his manner, but he played enough secondary or tertiary parts in enough movies to make him recognizable and, to the perceptive, a favorite supporting performer. Even if you didn't know his name. "That guy" actors and actresses are great for trivia lovers and perhaps greater for documentarians. A couple years ago a movie came out called That Guy... Who Was in That Thing, which while not quite as...

James Rebhorn, the character actor who died at the weekend, wrote an obituary to himself before his death from skin cancer.
Rebhorn fought a 20-year battle with melanoma and took time out to write the obituary, titled 'His Life, According to Jim', which was published by Jersey City's St. Paul Lutheran Church on Monday (March 24).
He paid tribute to his mother and father, who "loved him very much and supported all his dreams", as well as praised his wife Rebecca and his two daughters.
The star also praised the actors' unions who represented him, his teachers and his agents, adding: "He was a lucky man in every way."
Rebhorn's many other works included The Game, »
