Guys, I love books. LOVE. THEM. I work in publishing; I’m doing a summer reading list, for goodness sake (which, FYI, look for a new Geeky Summer Reads post to go up later today). One of my favorite books that has come out in the past five years is Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn. If you haven’t read the book, you need to go read it now. It’s absolutely amazing. It’s not the sci-fi/fantasy stuff that I tend to write about here–it’s definitely a mystery/thriller. However, it’s also one of those books that when you read the last page, you just have to sit there in silence to try process the insanity that you just read. It is fully messed up, and the ending completely makes you question your own sanity as you think, “Oh my gosh, I totally get that…What’s wrong with me?!?” Okay, maybe that was just me, but honestly, I love this book, so I couldn’t help but post about this new trailer.
When I heard they were making a movie out of the book, I wasn’t surprised. The book sold astronomically well. It was a no-brainer for a movie to be made based on the book. Buuut…then they cast Ben Affleck (aka Mr. You-Always-Make-Me-Nervous–When-You-Are-Cast-In-Roles-I-Love) as the lead male role of Nick Dunne, and I was a bit nervous. Then I heard that when writing the screenplay, Gillian Flynn deviated from the amazing ending of her book, and I was more nervous. However, after seeing the second trailer for the movie, seeing a portion of Ben Affleck’s performance, and seeing that Neil Patrick Harris will be playing Desi; I have decided that I am nothing more than 1,000,000% super-stoked for this movie to release. Check out the trailer below!
