David Fincher accumulates disturbing thrillers awarded with Oscar nominations, statuettes and success in Cannes. Titles such as Seven (1995), The Game (1997), The Fight Club (1999), Zodiac (2007) or the last one, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011), along with others like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) or The Social Network (2010) have consolidated his position as one of the most admired American directors by the general public and highly regarded by critics.

The filmmaker’s latest film, Gone Girl, returns to his favorite theme, the dark side of the human mind, to present the story of Nick (Ben Affleck), a husband tormented by the mysterious disappearance of his wife (Rosamund Pike) on their fifth wedding anniversary. During the investigation, suspicion falls on the husband whose serene and aloof attitude leaves everyone baffled. The argument is an adaptation of the eponymous bestseller by the writer Gillian Flynn, who has made his debut as a film screenwriter, creating a different ending.

Before its release in the United States, the film had become a phenomenon through viral campaigns and a website where you could investigate the scene of the disappearance, the living room of the house, with signs of a struggle, a knife, a bra, a wedding photo and a note with a message: “this man could kill me.”

After its release in New York, it seemed that Gone Girl was tipped for Oscars. Perhaps it is early to judge, but certainly some of its scenes and the excellent soundtrack by Nine Inch Nails will not leave anyone indifferent.

Release date in Spain: October 10th
