‘Gone Girl’ Trailer: David Fincher Suggests the Girl May Be in the Water

14 April 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

You can have your Paul Thomas Andersons and Terrence Malicks, your Richard Linklaters and Friedberg/Seltzers. For my money the most consistently fantastic and exciting director working today is David Fincher. Even perceived “bottom tier” Fincher thrillers (Panic Room, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) are better than a large percentage of other suspense films out there, and it’s his work that I most look forward to every couple years. His latest is once again an adaptation of an immensely popular novel, but unlike Stieg Larsson’s Nordic thriller Gillian Flynn‘s book lacks a distinct visual style that plays so well into Fincher’s wheelhouse. The film, scripted by Flynn herself, is a mystery set in suburban America that follows a man’s (Ben Affleck) attempt to find his missing wife (Rosamund Pike) and convince the world that he’s not somehow responsible. Check out the first trailer for Gone Girl below. First »

David Fincher: Gone Girl director's career in movie trailers

14 April 2014 4:38 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The first trailer for David Fincher's hotly-anticipated thriller Gone Girl debuted today, and it's yet another fantastic promo from a director who's served up some of the best mainstream Hollywood fare over the last two decades.

Many movies rely on marketing agencies to cut their trailer material, but in recent years Fincher has operated a little differently, getting involved himself from the get-go to help shape how his movies are sold. It shows; first looks for Fincher releases are often mini-movies in themselves, oblique and creative teasers designed to hook you in before a more accessible promo is released.

Digital Spy goes film-by-film with Fincher's trailer back catalogue to highlight 8 of his best promos below. We've excluded Alien 3 on the grounds that Fincher lost final cut to the studio and had little to do with the film by the time it was released.

Must Watch: Ben Affleck in David Fincher's 'Gone Girl' Teaser Trailer

14 April 2014 4:09 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

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, »

Thinking Out Loud: My March Movie Madness

29 March 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s Thinking Out Loud missive, I wanted to start by talking a bit about the best March releases that I can, well…think off. I initially thought about this after seeing Noah earlier this week, since it’s much better than the March release date suggests. Though not a perfect movie by any stretch, it’s a quality film brimming with ambition, far more in place for a summer or even winter release as opposed to what this time period that used to be almost a dumping ground. As such, I looked back at some of the more notable flicks to have come out during the month, and lo and behold, we’ve even had a few Oscar winners hit during the month of March. It’s certainly the best of the early season months, that’s for sure… I’m not going to talk about any of the titles specifically, »

Country Singer Dwight Yoakam Ventures Under the Dome in Season 2

20 March 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Dwight Yoakam is certainly best known as a country singer, but he has several acting credits under his belt (Crank: High Voltage, Panic Room, Sling Blade, and "Wilfred" to name a few) and is about to add another.

Per TV Guide, Yoakam has joined the cast of CBS's "Under the Dome" for Season 2 and will play Lyle Chumley, who runs Chester's Mill's barbershop, the Two Scissors.

Lyle has a complicated history with Big Jim (Dean Norris), having once been romantically linked with his dead wife, Pauline (Sherry Stringfield). Like Pauline, Lyle has a mysterious connection to the Dome and very well may know the answer to its origins.

Yoakam will recur in multiple episodes of the show. He joins other Season 2 newcomers Stringfield, Eddie Cahill, Grace Victoria Cox, and Karla Crome.

"Under the Dome," which returns on Monday, June 30th, with a Stephen King-penned episode, stars Mike Vogel (Barbie »

Pregnant Celebrities - Thandie Newton Gives Birth to Baby Boy at Home

7 March 2014 7:31 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Pregnant celebrities - Thandie Newton has given birth to a baby boy at home. The 41-year-old actress and husband Ol Parker welcomed little Booker Jombe - a sibling for their daughters Ripley, 13, and Nico, nine - into the world on Monday, she has announced on twitter.

She said: ''Basically, I had two options; to withdraw from the show which would have meant the show collapsing, or to commit regardless. ''I'd seem actresses takes on meaty un-pregnant roles while carrying babies - Jodie Foster in 'Panic Room'. My agent also reassured me that both Claire Danes and Anna Paquin »

Jared Leto on Thirty Seconds to Mars, losing weight for Dallas Buyers Club – and winning an Oscar

6 March 2014 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The actor was so happy making music with his band that he thought he'd never make a film again

• Oscar-winner Jared Leto has not seen Dallas Buyers Club

Hi Jared! You've always struck me as a fairly private person. Do you hate giving interviews? No, not at all. But if the interview's bad, then it's no fun, and by bad I mean routine, you know? So the challenge has been set!

When you were preparing to play Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club, an HIV-positive transgender woman, did you talk to trans people and people with HIV? Yeah, definitely. I talked to transgender people and that was the education and the start of it all. I'm really grateful for those experiences.

Did you go method? I stayed in character the entire shoot. I couldn't imagine doing it another way. I'd gone too far to pick it up and drop it off. »

Review: Riveting, Nimble & Elegant Thriller 'Grand Piano' Starring Elijah Wood & John Cusack

4 March 2014 3:09 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A welcome reminder that high-concept thrillers needn’t rely on stupid coincidences and even stupider characters in order to succeed, “Grand Piano” turns the unlikeliest of scenarios into a riveting battle of wills. The story of a concert pianist whose comeback performance gets hijacked by a sniper with a secret agenda, director Eugenio Mira’s latest film breathlessly combines artistic anxiety and personal desperation, providing its character with a journey as intense emotionally as it is physically. In fact, probably the best Brian De Palma movie he never made, “Grand Piano” expands the boundaries of single-location, real-time mysteries like “Phone Booth” and “Panic Room” with a brilliantly simple concept and nimble, elegant style. Elijah Wood plays Tom Selznick, a master-class pianist set to play in public for the first time in five years. Having famously choked during a performance of a piece by his late mentor, he is understandably nervous »

Kristen Stewart's Fashion Regret: "Ridiculous Outfit" at Panic Room Premiere

She's come a long way! Marie Claire UK caught up with Kristen Stewart in New York last week, and got the Twilight actress to share her biggest fashion regret -- a sartorial choice she made when she was just an 11-year-old kid star. "I think the pictures that they took at the premiere of Panic Room," Stewart, 23, shared. "It's like a popular image to show from when I was younger, you know, like 'she was a kid!'

Oliver Megaton Back for 'Taken 3' & Forest Whitaker Will Join the Fun

29 January 2014 3:17 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After taking a surprisingly good action thriller in Taken and running it into the ground hard with Taken 2, Fox is finally making moves to get Taken 3 (Taken Not Stirred) off the ground. All right, that's not the real title, but why not go for the gold? Anyway, Deadline has word that Olivier Megaton will be back to direct the third film in the action franchise starring Liam Neeson and Maggie Grace, and that's not exactly the best news since the sequel was pretty terrible. Neeson and Grace will both be back (can't wait to see how they shoehorn Bryan Mills daughter into the plot this time), but a new face is joining the action this time. Forest Whitaker (Panic Room, The Butler) will have a role in Taken 3 (You Must MisTaken), but it's not clear if he will have a villain role or work with Neeson on »

Kristen Stewart Shares Red Carpet Regrets!

Kristen Stewart may be the new face of Balenciaga ... but she hasn't always been so comfortable with her looks! The actress opens up to Marie Claire about her new partnership with Balenciaga Rosabotanica and gets candid about some of her fashion mishaps. So does she have any regrets? "Yeah, totally. Let’s see. Definitely, I mean I’ve been doing it for a while so I’ve definitely seen fashions and been like 'woah,'" she tells the mag. And one red carpet moment that makes Kristen cringe -- when she sees the picture of herself at just 12-years-old!"It shouldn’t be embarrassing because I was so young, but it doesn’t even matter how young you are, you’re just so, so embarrassed," she admits.

Kristen Stewart Laughs at Her Panic Room Red Carpet Look From 2002: I Was a "Goofy Kid"

28 January 2014 8:11 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Kristen Stewart is used to walking the red carpet after four years of Twilight premieres, but she wasn't always so confident making appearances at high-profile events. Seeing photos from her grand debut at the Panic Room premiere in March 2002, for example, makes Stewart's skin crawl. "It's like a popular image to show from when I was younger, you know, like, 'She was a kid!'" she tells Marie Claire UK. "I look at that and I'm like, 'Oh... my... gosh.'" "I had like these baby hairs and I was being weird about them, so I was like, 'I'm just gonna cut them off.'

Sundance Film Review: ‘Camp X-Ray’

17 January 2014 9:04 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Channeling Jodie Foster in “The Silence of the Lambs,” Kristen Stewart delivers a solid performance as a rookie Guantanamo Bay guard in “Camp X-Ray,” a competently directed, politically questionable film whose most appreciative viewers will leave feeling better about Gitmo. Personalizing the war on terror through its story of the tricky friendship that develops between Stewart’s tough-and-tender private and a Middle Eastern inmate (Payman Maadi) whom she’s instructed never to call a prisoner (those are protected by the Geneva Convention), first-time writer-director Peter Sattler’s pic means very well, but strains credibility and ethics alike. Commercial prospects appear limited.

Much of the dialogue-driven film has Maadi’s Ali, more cat than mouse, and Stewart’s Cole, frightened but drawn in, conversing through the tiny window in his cell, a conceit that puts the pic firmly in the company of “Lambs,” not least when the private refers to her charge as “Lecter. »

Jared Leto on His Return to Acting: ‘I Needed to Go Away in Order to Have Something to Say Again’

15 January 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jared Leto has a coffin in the living room of his Los Angeles home. Perhaps even stranger, he’s not sure exactly where it came from. “I think it’s from ‘Mr. Nobody,’ ” he says, referring to the recently released film he shot back in 2007. “But I can’t really remember.”

The “coffin table” is stacked with hundreds of books, from classics like Homer’s “The Odyssey” to works by Stephen King.

Leto’s eclectic taste in titles, along with his wide collection of unique art from all over the world — including a sculpture inspired by the Moloko Bar in “A Clockwork Orange” — reflects a man and artist who is not easy to pigeonhole.

His co-star in “Dallas Buyer’s Club” instantly discovered that about Leto when they first came face to face: “I met a performance artist,” Matthew McConaughey says. “He is not someone bound by one certain craft — acting, »

Another Glimpse at David Fincher's 'Gone Girl' on Creepy EW Cover

8 January 2014 8:36 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Before the New Year, we finally got a first look at Ben Affleck in director David Fincher's adaptation of Gone Girl, based on Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel of the same name. In the film, Affleck is looking for his missing wife (Rosamund Pike), but he also becomes the prime suspect in the case. Now we get another odd look at the film thanks to the film being the cover story for Entertainment Weekly. Seemingly taking cues from the iconic Rolling Stone cover with John Lennon and Yoko Ono, the cover has Affleck lovingly embracing a clearly dead Pike on a table at the morgue. It's kind of disturbing, but feels like Fincher's style. Here's the EW cover for David Fincher's adaptation of Gone Girl: Gone Girl, being directed by David Fincher (of Seven, The Game, Fight Club, Zodiac, Panic Room, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, »
