When I first saw the trailer for Gone Girl, I was intrigued by the film. There was Ben Affleck, a cute blonde, suspense and Tyler Perry. Yes, Tyler Perry threw me off a bit, so I filed it away under watch it Video on Demand.  

Then, today I was reading my October issue of GQ - and in the Punch List section right on page 138 there is an article about the movie. This article's subhead reads "Watch Tyler Perry (?) Steal a Movie Without a Fat Suit." So you know what happened later today...I went to watch the movie. Peep the trailer below: 

First, I somehow missed (or forgot) that Neil Patrick Harris is also in the movie. Second, Gone Girl was fu*king awesome! It's a long movie, but at no point did I want it to end. The movie somehow managed to be dark, funny and sexy all at the same time. Excellent script (adapted from a book), direction and cast. Be sure to check it out!
