Movie Synopsis
On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne reports that his wife, Amy, has gone missing. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick's portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife?
Book Synopsis
On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer? 
My Thoughts
When I read the book I was amazed by how twisted it was. I really had no idea what was really happening and could never have imagined a book like this. Maybe because I don't know anyone as psycho as Amy Dunne. This movie is rated R for good reason. It is only appropriate for adults. The film has Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore,  Profanity, and Frightening and Intense Scenes (all of this is from the Parent's Guide on IMDB). So you are warned and can judge for yourself if this movie is for you.

What is amazing about her is not only did she write this astonishing book, she wrote the screenplay as well. You don't see the author of the book write the screenplay for the movie very often. Congratulations Gillian Flynn!

Ben Affleck playing {Nick Dunne}
Well we all know who Ben Affleck is and he has been in so many movies I can't name them all. But some of my favorites are: "Dazed and Confused", "Good Will Hunting", "Pearl Harbor" and "Argo". He is currently working on "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"

New Ending??
Author Gillian Flynn wrote the screenplay for the film adaptation of Gone Girl, which is exciting enough—but she also made it known that, in order to keep fans of the book on their toes, the ending in the movie will be different. Although it usually bothers me when film adaptations diverge too far from a book’s plot, I’m intrigued by this one, since it’s coming from the same brilliant, twisted mind that originally wrote the book—what a treat! And, whether or not you loved the novel’s shocking, controversial ending (and there are many who will argue passionately both for and against it), you have to admit that watching for the movie’s divergence from it is going to be quite enjoyable—particularly if the book is fresh in your mind.

I thought I would throw in this picture of me in front of Random House in New York City and their giant poster of "Gone Girl". This was in the summer of 2012. Sorry it's such a grainy picture it was taken at night.
