Charlie Rose is one of the few television personalities in the US that consistently does long-form interviews for artists and entertainment figures. When someone shows up on Rose’s show, you can reliably expect an in-depth conversation that will offer ideas that go much deeper than sound byte level. So having the cast and creators of Gone Girl on the show — author/screenwriter Gillian Flynn, director David Fincher, and stars Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck — is a great thing. This Charlie Rose Gone Girl talk is a half hour of in-depth conversation about the film and the personalities that created it. Read More »

In David Fincher‘s big screen adaptation of Gone Girl, Rosamund Pike plays Amy Dunne, a wife who goes mysteriously missing leaving her husband (Ben Affleck) in the public spotlight. The character of Dunne has always lived in the shadow of Amazing Amy, a series of children’s books written by her parents very loosely based on her childhood. Well it looks like the Amazing Amy books are about to be released as a collection, The Complete Amazing Amy, and a preview has been released digitally. Take a quick preview of The Complete Amazing Amy, after the jump.

When the cameras turn off, a movie isn’t even close to finished. These days, post-production is just as important, if not more so, than principal photography. Yes, capturing the images and performances are absolutely crucial to a film. But figuring out the pacing, making the story cohesive, adding emotion with music, depth with effects, are what really make a movie a movie.
David Fincher‘s Gone Girl is no different. Fincher and director of photography Jeff Cronenweth captured stunning images on the Red Epic Dragon 6K camera but when that was done, the editors, led by Kirk Baxter, took over. For Gone Girl, they used a new workflow that blurred the line between digital effects and editing in a way that’s pretty new and unique. Check out a video about the Gone Girl editing and post-production below. Read More »
David Fincher, author/screenwriter Gillian Flynn and the cast of Gone Girl have been all over the place in the past couple weeks to promote the film. They did a big panel at the New York Film Festival, and Fincher just did a Film Indepenent event in LA, and they’ve done various television press to get word out for the film. Now they’ve done a session at Cinemax for the “Max Final Cut” and the panel talk offers them the chance to talk seriously about the material and to drop some great anecdotes. There’s a very comfortable camaraderie here, which isn’t always in evidence in a full-cast interview. Read More »

I’ve always loved hearing filmmakers discuss movies. We’ve often printed interviews where we ask filmmakers about their favorite films and the /Filmcast has tried to bring on directors to review the latest big screen movies. That hasn’t been as constant of a feature as David Chen and I originally planned, because as it turns out, people in the movie industry generally don’t like to publicly bas other filmmaker’s projects and we generally only got yeses from those directors who had a positive take on the film at hand. But I’ve always enjoyed hearing filmmakers discuss the movies they love and the current state of cinema.
Richard Kelly, writer/director of Donnie Darko, Southland Tales, and The Box, has always made his opinions and himself very accessible (actually, I almost wish he wouldn’t have explained the intentions and meanings behind his films, as they serve better as mysteries with no definitive answer). And this week, like many of us, he saw David Fincher‘s latest film Gone Girl and wrote a bit about it on his blog. Find out more about the Richard Kelly Gone Girl review, after the jump.

For fans of David Fincher and/or Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl became a must-see the second it was announced. But for those still on the fence — or, alternately, for those who are so eager they just need something to tide them over until the movie actually opens — Fox has tons of new marketing material to share.
Among them are the first Gone Girl clip, four new Gone Girl TV spots, and the full streaming Gone Girl soundtrack. Bury yourself in Nick and Amy’s twisted world after the jump.

It was only a few years ago that Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross began composing scores, but already they’ve come to feel like a staple of David Fincher‘s films. The dynamic duo are at it again this year with Gone Girl, and in keeping with the twisted feel of the movie the first track released from the Gone Girl soundtrack is eerie and kind of off-putting. In a good way.
Hit the jump for the Gone Girl soundtrack preview, plus a big gallery of new high-res pics from the thriller.
