Starring Ben Affleck as Nick and Rosamund Pike as Amy, the foreboding clip shows Nick trying to chat up Amy in a bar in New York by asking her “who are you?”

British actress Pike replies by teasing Nick in a breathy American accent.

“A) I’m an award-winning Scrimshander. B) I’m a moderately influential war lord. C) I write personality quizzes for magazines,” she says.

When Nick guesses her real job in magazine publishing, she then asks: “And you, who are you?” He replies: “I’m the guy to save you. From all this awesomeness.”

Adapted by Gillian Flynn from her best-selling thriller, the film follows the breakdown of the married couple as Amy is reported missing while Nick finds himself at the centre of a police hunt. 

The film received positive reviews from critics when it debuted to press earlier this week.


The Independent’s chief film critic Geoffrey Macnab called the adaptation “slippery, deceptive and immensely pleasurable”, adding that Rosamund Pike gives “the performance of her screen career so far”.

Gone Girl is released in the UK on 2 October and in the US on 3 October.
