"I did not kill my wife," Ben Affleck's Nick Dunne says with a calm demeanor at the very end of the new "Gone Girl" trailer. "I am not a murderer." David Fincher's adaptation of Gillian Flynn's best-selling thriller is due out later this year, and 20th Century Fox released the film's first teaser on Monday. It's a great one, filled with the sterilized images that fans have come to expect from Fincher, what appears to be a top-notch performance from Affleck (he even sells wearing a Mets hat) and the best-ever usage of "She," here covered by Richard Butler. (Sorry, "Notting Hill.") The only issue? The briefest of glimpses at the title character, Rosamund Pike's Amy Dunne. Despite that, Pike still makes an impact here, something that portends to her forthcoming breakout.
"Gone Girl" is out in theaters on Oct. 3.
