Movie obsession of the week: Gone Girl

2014-10-08 12:26

Cape Town – When we first reported on Ben Affleck’s movie Gone Girl we were mildly interested.

But now that the Gone Girl train has taken on full speed we’re on it too!

Here are five reasons you can't miss this movie:

1. Ben Affleck

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Ben on the big screen. This movie is being hailed as his comeback and according to the director Ben landed this gig because of his smile. If his smile isn’t enough, Ben’s penis also makes its big screen debut.

2. Rosmund Pike

You’re probably asking Rosmund who? The British actress' role in Gone Girl is set to be her breakthrough role and while this is not her first big blockbuster movie, this role is set to put her on the map.  

3. Neil Patrick Harris

We’re crazy about Neil Patrick Harris and if the reviews are anything to go by, Neil taps into his creepier side.

4. It’s different from anything else out on the cinema circuit.

Hands up if you’re tired of superhero flicks and sequels! This thriller is a breath of fresh air on the movie circuit.

5.  It’s the number 1 movie at the box office!

If all of the other reasons aren’t enough to convince you then this one should. After it’s first weekend at the box office the movie has grossed a whooping $38m. Numbers don't lie folks.

If you haven't seen the trailer yet, check it out now!
