Host Ellen Abbott asks a downcast-looking Affleck: “You’re probably the most hated person in America. Did you kill your wife Nick?”
From then on, the trailer speeds up to become a fast-paced thriller that appears to rival the pace of Flynn’s novel.
Scenes of Nick failing to answer simple questions put to him by the police are intercut with ethereal voiceovers from Amy saying: “I will practise believing my husband loves me...I finally realise I am scared of my own husband.”
A number of characters from the book that did not appear in the first trailer are introduced for the first time.
Neil Patrick Harris, who plays Amy's creepy ex-boyfriend Desi Collings, turns up at a volunteer meeting to help find Amy and is confronted by Nick for the first time.
Neil Patrick Harris plays Amy Dunne's creepy ex-boyfriend Desi Amy’s self-satisfied parents, played by Lisa Banes and David Clennon, make an appearance, with Amy’s father Elliott hugging Nick and telling him: “We are all scared, but we are all here now.”
Hot-shot lawyer Tanner Bolt, played by Tyler Perry, is also seen briefing Nick on what he must say before his appearance on Ellen Abbott Live.
The trailer ends with Amy writing “this man may kill me. This man may truly kill me” in her diary.
Gone Girl is due to be released in the UK on 3 October.
