Gone Girl Review: Crafty, Smart Thriller is Just Too Long

Gone Girl bubbles with a sexualized psychosis that's a bit too long for our bladders. In Director David Fincher's Gone Girl , Nick (Ben Affleck) and Amy (Rosamund Pike) are a couple in deep trouble. After five years of marriage, they seem further apart than ever as both their careers and personal lives have dried up. All of that changes when Nick returns home to find his wife has disappeared, leading police to eventually suspect him. They have their reasons, and soon evidence begins to pile up that not even Nick's attorney Tanner Bolt (Tyler Perry) can overcome. But Amy is not who she appears, and as Nick, Tanner, and Nick's sister (Carrie Coon) begin to put the pieces together, it's clear that no one is prepared for what is coming. Based closely to the 2012 best-selling novel by Gillian Flynn (who also wrote the screenplay), Gone Girl is a deeply disturbing tale of lies and deceit with plenty of character drama and twists to satisfy just about eve

October 2014 Movies On Our Radar

After two terrible months, October shapes up nicely in our On the Radar Preview. We hate being right. Last month, we predicted that the Domestic Box Office for September 2014 would be one of the worst in recent memory, and it sadly kept its promise, slogging in well under 2013 with $273.8m and nearly beating the venerable 2001 haul of $268.5m. The quarter was also the worst since 1996, taking in just $2.5b - yes, that period includes Summer 'blockbusters.' With these infamies behind us, we now move into the pre-Oscar/Holiday film season, a period that usually delivers memorable features while a few even make their case for February considerations. This month, we find an appealing mix of WWII tank drama, spine-tingling horror, as well as a few genuine Oscar contenders. Here is our On the Radar preview for October 2014: Annabelle (October 1st) Plot: A couple begin to experience terrifying supernatural occurrences involving a vintage doll shortly after their hom

David Fincher To Direct "Utopia" For HBO

Out and about plugging his latest film, Gone Girl , David Fincher has also been talking up his plans – announced earlier this year – to produce an adaptation of Channel 4’s conspiracy series Utopia . He’ll be even more involved than we thought, as he’s aiming to direct all the episodes of the HBO version’s first season. Utopia , in case you didn’t see the Channel 4 original, set things in motion with the discovery of a manuscript for a legendary graphic novel known as The Utopia Experiments , long shrouded in mystery. When a small group of previously unconnected people unite in their shared interest, things take a much darker turn. Because they are by no means the only ones interested in the manuscript. Targeted swiftly and relentlessly by a murderous organisation known as The Network, the terrified group are left with only one option if they want to survive: they have to run. “I like the characters – I love Dennis Kelly’s honesty and affinity for the nerds,” Fincher tells Th

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For #GONEGIRL In Las Vegas

Win Tickets To An Advance For GONE GIRL on Thursday, October 2nd at 7:00PM in Las Vegas. From the tour de force thriller that became a bestselling must-read comes David Fincher’s screen version of Gone Girl, a wild ride through our modern media culture and down into the deep, dark fault lines of an American marriage – in all its unreliable promises, inescapable deceits and pitch-black comedy. The couple at the center of the story – former New York writer Nick Dunne and his formerly “cool girl” wife Amy, now trying to make ends meet in the mid-recession Midwest – have all the sinuous outer contours of contemporary marital bliss. But on the occasion of their 5th wedding anniversary, Amy goes missing -- and those contours crack into a maze of fissures. Nick becomes the prime suspect, shrouded in a fog of suspicious behavior. Amy becomes the vaunted object of a media frenzy as the search for her, dead or alive, plays out before the eyes of a world thirsting for revelations.
