The adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s mystery thriller Gone Girl is one of the most anticipated films of this year, especially because it is in the hands of master of murder movies David Fincher. The director's work on films like Se7en and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo make him no stranger to the macabre.

This latest trailer ramps up the tension, focusing on the ways in which Ben Affleck’s character comes under intense focus for his role in the disappearance of his wife (played by Rosamund Pike). Affleck does himself no favors by clearly being a total liar, and in the preview we get to see multiple instances of him willfully deceiving others.

Plus, wow Neil Patrick Harris. That is a master class in how to be a total creep.

The movie hits theaters on October 3, and could be a potential Oscar candidate.
