One problem when one of your favorite books get adapted into a movie is that you already know how it’s going to end. Another problem is that 99% of the time, the book was better, but it’s always hard to cram the complexities of a novel into a 2-hour acted-out narrative. David Fincher and Gillian Flynn have circumvented the first problem by changing the ending of Gone Girl for the big screen. How much did they change?
20th Century Fox’s big screen adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s wonderfully entertaining, brain-whiplash-inducing suspense novel Gone Girl about the disappearance of main character Amy Dunne is one of the most highly-anticipated films of 2014, and the production company wet the whistles of fans with the first photo of Ben Affleck as Amy’s husband Nick Dunne as well as Rosamund Pike as Amy Dunne, albeit in the form of a “Missing” poster.
