"Nick Dunne, you are probably the most hated man in the world right now. Did you kill your wife?"
The latest trailer for the highly anticipated flick Gone Girl was released today and the clip begins with those harrowing words as Dunne (Ben Affleck) is questioned by a big-time reporter on national TV, all in an attempt to clear his own name after he becomes a suspect in his wife's disappearance.
Based on Gillian Flynn's novel of the same name, Gone Girl centers on Affleck as he searches for his wife (Rosamund Pike) who vanishes on their fifth wedding anniversary, but the plot takes an unexpected turn after the media and authorities begin to question Affleck's marriage and motives, all while he is being accused of murdering his wife.
While the first trailer featured little dialogue and instead was set to the tune of Charles Aznavour's "She," the second look at the David Fincher-directed flick gives viewers a peek into the mysterious case of the young woman's disappearance as Affleck pleads his innocence.
"As you all know, my wife, Amy Elliott Dunne disappeared three days ago. I had nothing to do with the disappearance of my wife. I have nothing to hide," Affleck says as he addresses the media circus.
The trailer also shows footage of police questioning Affeck as we hear Amy reading disturbing entries from her diary, which only cast even further doubt on Nick. And we finally get our first look at Neil Patrick Harris as Desi, an old boyfriend of Amy's, although he is introduced as man who wants to "help" Affleck find his wife.
Ahead of the release of today's trailer, four movie posters which contain further "evidence" regarding the disappearance of Amy Dunne also hit the Internet on Sunday. One poster contains a piece of paper from Amy's diary that has been burnt along the edges which reads "This man may kill me."
Three additional posters, each containing clues into Amy's vanishing, all feature identical evidence bags, one with a scalpel, another with a red thong and the last with a wedding photo of the two. The artwork is stamped with the tagline, "Happy Anniversary," which only adds to the eerie tone of the film.
Missi Pyle,Tyler Perry, Patrig Fugit,Casey Wilson, Scott McNairy, Kim Dickens and Emily Ratajkowski also star in the drama based on the global best-seller. Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea, along with Leslie Dixon, are producing.
Gone Girl hits theaters Oct. 3.
