It has been a little while since we have seen something new from the upcoming thriller Gone Girl; however, the good people over at Twentieth Century Fox have decided to rectify this.
Back in April, fans got their first look at the new film with the release of the first trailer for Gone Girl.
Now, we have a look at a series of four cryptic new posters for the upcoming film.
For those of you who are not familiar with the premise of the new story, here is a quick breakdown of what you can expect in Gone Girl.
Nick and Amy Dunne, who are played in the film by Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, seem to have the perfect marriage. Then, on their fifth anniversary, Nick calls police to report his wife missing.
Now, with the media kicking themselves into the usual frenzy, Nick’s story of their picture-perfect life is starting to crumble and people are beginning to wonder if it wasn’t Nick who was responsible for his wife’s disappearance and eventual murder.
As I said before, there are four new posters released, just in time for the couple’s anniversary, that show some of the pieces of evidence in the case. The question here is what does it all mean?
Only one piece of the evidence, at least from the little snippets of information we know at this point, show any indication of the man who may have ended Amy’s life.
The first in the series of four posters comes at the hands of the Huffington Post. It is a photo of Nick and Amy at their wedding enjoying a toast with all of their closest friends.
The next piece of evidence in this elusive puzzle is a burned piece of paper with the date on it and a cryptic message, “This man may kill me.” This poster comes courtesy of Awards Daily.
The third poster, which comes courtesy of HitFix, shows a bloody box cutter. There is no indication of where this came from, but police certainly seem to believe that it was used by our killer.
The fourth and final poster, which comes at the hands of IndieWire, shows an intimate pair of red underwear that one would assume belong to the victim.
While the evidence doesn’t directly point to Amy’s husband Nick, at least from what we have seen so far, if I was him I would certainly begin looking for a really good attorney. He is certainly going to need one as the police continue to gather evidence that may very well send him in their direction.
As you can see in the posters, there is a new trailer due out later today. Hopefully, this will make the picture a little bit clearer. Until then, we are all left to wonder, did Nick actually murder his wife?
The film is being directed by David Fincher, the man who brought you films like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network.
Gone Girl is based off of the novel of the same name by bestselling author Gillian Flynn, who also wrote the screenplay for the film.
The film stars Ben Affleck as Nick Dunne and Rosamund Pike as his wife Amy Elliott Dunne. Gone Girl also stars How I Met Your Mother’s Neil Patrick Harris, Missy Pyle, Tyler Perry, Patrick Fugit, Scoot McNairy, Kim Dickens, and many more.
Gone Girl is scheduled to be released on October 3, 2014.
