New Gone Girl TV Spot Tortures Ben Affleck’s Nick Dunne

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

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 PikeTyler Perry, »

Fox is finally making 'X-Men' spinoff 'Deadpool'

18 September 2014 4:12 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The Deadpool movie has become a Holy Grail for a certain kind of High Nerd comic book fan. While Hollywood has cycled through the A-list superheroes, rebooting the Batmen and the Supermen and the Spider-Men and even finally figuring out how to create a Hulk that people don’t actively despise, the lesser-known-but-aggressively-beloved merc with a mouth has been locked in development hell. The prospect of a Deadpool movie always seemed promising. Over the last couple decades, the character has transformed into a meta-hilarious anti-hero, breaking the fourth wall and angrily deconstructing the tropes of superherodom.

David Fincher: ‘Studios Treat Audiences Like Cattle In a Stockyard’

16 September 2014 1:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

David Fincher remains unimpressed with how the major studios view their audiences.

“Studios treat audiences like lemmings, like cattle in a stockyard,” Fincher, who has directed titles such as Sony’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and Fox’s “Gone Girl,” said in about-to-published Playboy interview for the October issue in response to a question about what he wants people to know about him.

“I don’t want to ask actors or anyone else on a movie to work so hard with me if the studios treat us as though we’re making Big Macs,” he said. “‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ is not a Big Mac.  ‘Gone Girl’ is not a Big Mac.”

Fincher has been promoting “Gone Girl,” starring Ben Affleck and based on Gillian Flynn’s bestseller. The murder mystery opens Oct. 3.

Fincher also touched on his interest in serial killers, having directed “Zodiac” and “Seven, »

Watch: 17-Minute Video Tribute To The Films Of David Fincher

16 September 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

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 »

David Fincher's Big Reveal Regarding the Next Two 'Dragon Tattoo' Movies

15 September 2014 8:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

  Audiences couldn’t get enough of Rooney Mara as a punk hacker weirdo in David Fincher’s American adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Although the director made a commitment to adapt the next two films/books in the series, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, there hasn’t been any news about their status for some time. Fincher has been busy as executive producer of the Netflix series House of Cards (directing a few episodes here and there), and he’s awaiting the release of the highly anticipated Gone Girl — an adaptation of the popular Gillian Flynn novel (in theaters October 3). But Vulture reports that despite Fincher’s workload, he’s still interested in filming the other Stieg...

This fall brings the release of Gone Girl, David Fincher‘s first theatrical release since 2011′s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. In between the two films, he was circling several others including the Dragon Tattoo follow-up The Girl Who Played with Fire and Disney’s Jules Verne adaptation 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

David Fincher explains why his 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea adaptation never happened

15 September 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple years ago, David Fincher (Fight Club, The Social Network) was knee-deep in location scouting for an adaptation of Jules Verne’s seminal science fiction novel, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea for Disney. After several delays and casting shakedowns, the project failed to materialize and Fincher moved on to adapting Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl instead.

It were those disputes over casting that eventually put the kibosh on the adaptation, according to Fincher. He was recently interviewed by Little White Lies and spoke candidly about the things going on behind the scenes that sunk 20,000 Leagues, saying:

“You get over $200 million — all motion picture companies have corporate culture and corporate anxieties. Once we got past the list of people we could cast as the different characters in the film, once we got past one or two names which made them very comfortable, making a movie at that price, it became this »

David Fincher Reveals Why 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea Is Still Sleeping With The Fishes

15 September 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two years ago, David Fincher wasn’t immersed in the pages of Gillian Flynn’s acclaimed thriller Gone Girl; rather, the revered director was location shooting for another project that was between his crosshairs. That ill-fated production was a blockbuster adaptation of Disney’s 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.

And while the film looked on track following approved tax rebates from the Australian government, disagreements over casting choices irrefutably put the brakes on Fincher’s big screen rendition of Jules Verne’s eponymous novel. So, now that the director has seemingly moved on from the underwater adventure, Fincher spoke candidly with Little White Lies and revealed why the modern retelling of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea is still sleeping with the fishes.

“You get over $200 million — all motion picture companies have corporate culture and corporate anxieties. Once we got past the list of people we could cast as the different characters in the film, »

David Fincher Offers Hope for Dragon Tattoo Sequel

15 September 2014 7:58 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Sony Pictures and director David Fincher have been developing the sequel to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo for a couple of years already, but it has been slow moving. The sequel is called The Girl Who Played With Fire, and its script was written by Steve Zaillian. In case you were wondering what the status of this movie is, the director recently gave a brief hopeful update in an interview with Afton Bladet, saying:

"I think because it [Sony] already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script so it will result in something. The script that we now have a huge potential, I can reveal as much as it is extremely different from the book."

It's good to hear that Fincher thinks they movie will eventually happen, and that the script has "huge potential." I'm really curious to see the "extremely" different changes they've made. I'm »

David Fincher Says ‘Girl Who Played with Fire’ Will Happen

15 September 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

For years, Sony’s development on the followup to its Girl with the Dragon Tattoo movie, The Girl Who Played With Fire, has moved forward at a glacial pace. Now, however, director David Fincher himself has chimed in on the chances of a sequel. While in Sweden to promote his upcoming Gone Girl, the director indicated that Sony has already invested so much in developing The Girl Who Played With Fire that it may have to make it.

David Fincher’s 2011 U.S. adaptation of the late Stieg Larsson’s international bestseller The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo received a good amount of critical acclaim but overall only broke even here in the States. It wasn’t exactly a huge money-loser given ...

Although it's been almost three year since David Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo hit theaters, Sony and Fincher are apparently still interested in doing a sequel. In an interview with the Swedish site Afton Bladet, the director was asked about the status of the sequel, and while he does say there is a script, he also says it is quite different compared to The Girl Who Played with Fire, the second book from Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy.

David Fincher Hopes to Do Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Film Sequels

14 September 2014 8:47 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Despite the huge success of David Fincher’s 2011 English-language adaptation of Stieg Larsson's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, there hasn’t been much movement on the next two films as of late. Yet Fincher apparently still has hopes for the series: “I think because [Sony] already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script, it will result in something,” Fincher told Swedish site Afton Bladet (with Film Divider providing the translations). “The script that we now have has huge potential. I can reveal that it is extremely different from the book,” he continued. Yeah, whatever, Fincher. That’s what you always say. »

David Fincher's The Girl Who Played With Fire Will Be Extremely Different From The Book

14 September 2014 1:59 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

David Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo doesn't qualify as a flop, but it certainly was considered a box office disappointment. Released right around Christmas in 2011 - which many have criticized as a mistake because of the film's dark content - the adaptation came in third place during its opening weekend, and after a few months in theaters its domestic total went up to only $102 million (not super great for a film that cost a reported $90 million before marketing). This under-performance seriously slowed any and all franchise talk and conversations about adapting the sequel - The Girl Who Played With Fire. In his heart, however, it seems that David Fincher is not only not willing to give up on Lisbeth Salander and friends, but also has a prepared a very altered future lying ahead for them With Gone Girl now only a couple weeks away from release, the »

David Fincher Reveals Hope for ‘Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ Sequel

14 September 2014 10:38 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While David Fincher’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” pulled in $232 million in 2011, there’s been no official confirmations that the next two books in the Stieg Larsson trilogy, “The Girl Who Played With Fire” and ‘The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Next,” will be adapted into English-language films (the Swedish versions came out in 2009). However, Fincher revealed recently that he has hope for the possibility.

The director said that Sony, the producer of “Dragon Tattoo,” would likely do “something” with the work that’s already been done on the sequels.

“I think because (Sony) already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script, it will result in something,” he told Swedish site Afton Bladet (via Film Divider, which provided translation), talking about Steven Zaillian’s screenplays.

David Fincher hopeful for sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

14 September 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In 2011, David Fincher (Fight Club, Se7en) co-wrote and directed an adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s highly acclaimed Swedish crime novel The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo starring Daniel Craig (Skyfall) as troubled journalist-turned-detective Mikael Blomkvist and Rooney Mara (Her) as badass hacker Lisbeth Salander. Despite reaping a tonne of money and award nominations the general consensus is that Sony regarded the movie as a failure.

Speaking recently to the Swedish press while on tour promoting his latest film Gone Girl, Fincher provided a small update on the proposed sequel The Girl Who Played With Fire: “I think because [Sony] already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script so it will result in something. The script that we now have [has] a huge potential, I can reveal as much as it is extremely different from the book.”

Dane DeHaan & Rooney Mara Get Musical in the 1920s with 'Ziggy'

12 September 2014 12:24 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Over the past few years, both Rooney Mara and Dane DeHaan have become quite the impressive young actors, with the former making waves in The Social Network, Ain't Them Bodies Saints and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the latter breaking through with Chronicle and expanding with Kill Your Darlings, Life After Beth and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Now the two will team up in a completely different genre for both of them as THR reports DeHaan and Mara will star in a 1920s set musical called Ziggy, which will be directed by Australian filmmaker Diesel Schwarze, a protégé of Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrmann. The film will follow the rise and fall of the title character (DeHaan), a hunchback escape artist who arrives in New York during the mass-culture boom of the late 1920s and falls in love with the fiancée (Mara) of a powerful media mogul.

David Fincher still wants to make Girl with the Dragon Tattoo sequel

12 September 2014 9:40 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

David Fincher has said that he is still hoping to make a sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

The Social Network director oversaw the 2011 version of Stieg Larsson's best-selling novel, and has reiterated his desire to make a follow-up.

During promotional rounds for Gone Girl, Fincher offered an update on The Girl Who Played with Fire, which is being scripted by his Se7en writer Andrew Kevin Walker and will depart dramatically from the source text.

"I think because [Sony] already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script it will result in something," the director told Swedish site Afton Bladet.

"The script that we now have has a huge potential, I can reveal as much as it is extremely different from the book."

Rooney Mara is expected to reprise her role as Lisbeth Salander, while Daniel Craig's return as Mikael Blomkvist is yet to be officially confirmed. »
