Neil Patrick Harris Is Very Happy With The First Cut Of 'Gone Girl'

The big-screen adaptation of "Gone Girl" is one of the most anticipated films of the fall, and while most of us will have to wait until Oct. 3 to see it, star Neil Patrick Harris has already gotten the first look.

During a conversation with HuffPost Live's Ricky Camilleri about his work with the student art competition The Art Of The Pixel, Harris said "Gone Girl" director David Fincher gave him a late-night screening of a rough cut of the film after a recent performance of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch." The movie hadn't been color-corrected and had temporary music, but it was enough for Harris to give it his stamp of approval.

"I really, really loved it," he said of the 11:30 p.m. screening. "I loved the book, and I thought since ['Gone Girl' author Gillian Flynn] did the screenplay as well, it's in most ways true to the book -- mostly in its kind of unsettling nature. You leave feeling just kind of rocked by what 'relationship' can mean."
