This is an adaptation to a book
So the first official trailer for Gone Girl was released yesterday, and people went nuts for it. But perhaps you're a bit out of the loop and have no idea why everyone straight-up had an Internet meltdown when the footage went live. It's just another David Fincher film, right? Sure, it's got Ben Affleck, but what film doesn't? Why are people making such a big deal about it?

Gone Girl is an adaptation from the 2012 best-selling novel of the same name, written by Gillian Flynn. People went crazy for it. In fact, if you asked anyone that year for a book recommendation, they would shout "Gone Girl!" faster than you could say "please don't shout at me."
The plot is very complex, much too complex to sum up in a couple sentences, but basically the book revolves around Nick Dunne, whose wife Amy goes missing on their five-year wedding anniversary. It's a suspenseful crime story, sure, but it also takes an in-depth look at relationships and the notion that we never truly know the people we fall in love with.

We obviously are not going to tell you about the twists in the book, but just know that the second half of Gone Girl will give a new meaning to the phrase "holy s--t, I did not see that coming! What in the hell is going to happen now?" And that is a phrase you will probably use verbatim several times while reading about Amy and Nick reports E News.
