Reactions to the footage shown at CinemaCon for Gone Girl are all positive:
From the Hollywood Reporter:
Gone Girl’s dark trailer showed Ben Affleck’s character dealing with a media frenzy after his wife (Rosamund Pike) disappears. The trailer promises a haunting thriller, very much in line with Gillian Flynn’s book on which it is based. Affleck’s character can be seen creepily posing with his wife’s “Missing” poster and being harassed by media and police as the search continues for her. “I did not kill my wife. I am not a murderer,” says Affleck’s haunting voice-over towards the end of the trailer.
Okay now we just saw Gone Girl footage and it was amazing. Fincher going Zodiac again with some Tattoo undertones. Looks like a contender.

Footage from GONE GIRL was intense and noir-y. Felt like a good fit for Fincher's style. #cinemacon

Saw footage from Fincher's GONE GIRL. As you might expect looked great. He's one of the best directors on the planet. Can't wait for this.
