First look at Fincher's GONE GIRL
Book to film adaptations can always be a bit hit and miss, so it's not always great news when a bestselling or beloved book gets picked up for adaptation. I am a fan of David Fincher though, so have some hopes for his take on Gillian Flynn's GONE GIRL, which was an astonishingly well-received thriller recently. I did enjoy the book (I may have perhaps preferred Flynn's earlier DARK PLACES, but GONE GIRL was very good), so I am curious to see how it plays on film.
You can watch the first trailer that has been released above. The film will hit cinemas in October.
Are you a fan of book-to-movie adaptations? What have been some of your favourite and least-favourite versions of books that have made it to the TV or movie screen? Love to hear your thoughts.
