New ‘Gone Girl’ Promotional Images

Ben spoke with Empire in their latest issue about his upcoming movie ‘Gone Girl’ calling it a perfect date movie.  

 “I actually think this is the perfect date movie, not because I think it’ll result in divorce – I think that’s just David’s fantasy – but because it’s the kind of movie that a husband and wife could talk about afterwards. I think a man and a woman would have different takes on what happens. The last time I was in a movie that I thought polarised men and women in an interesting way was Chasing Amy. That was quite some time ago.”

Also released to the magazine were three new images from the movie

Ben and Tyler Bond Over Sing-a-Longs

In a recent interview Tyler Perry talks about how he and Ben spent some time getting to know each other through sing-a-longs

Ben Affleck and Tyler Perry bonded on the set of Gone Girl the old fashioned way – through sing-a-longs. Perry, who plays celebrity lawyer Tanner Bolt in the upcoming adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s 2012 best-seller, tells New York Magazine that Affleck had a tendency to burst into ’80s tunes in between takes. Impressed with his co-star’s encyclopedic song knowledge, Perry decided to put it to the test.

“One day, I was like, I’m just going to see how wild he can get. So I started singing [Bette Midler’s] ‘The Rose,’ and he could do it!” Perry reveals. How did director David Fincher, who runs a famously tight ship, react to his cast belting Bette? According to Perry, “he was singing along, too!”

Emily Ratajkowski on Playing Ben Affleck’s Mistress in ‘Gone Girl’

Emily spoke with Ocean Drive recently and this is what she had to say out her part in ‘Gone Girl’ .  You can read the full article HERE

She’ll be back in the pop culture hot seat this fall, playing a character who she knows will be audience-dividing: Andie Hardy, Ben Affleck’s character Nick Dunne’s mistress in Gone Girl. “Some viewers are going to think, I see why he was cheating on his wife: Not only was he unhappy, he has this sweet, beautiful girl that totally loves him,” she says. “And then a lot of women are going to go, That little slut!”  It was Affleck who suggested her to director David Fincher for the part, after seeing her in “Blurred Lines.” “I came to the audition in Los Angeles and not only were the casting director and David there but also Ben Affleck, and I realized that they were pretty serious about me. We sat for 45 minutes running the scene and just talking about Gone Girl as a story, and Andie as a character. I left feeling pretty confident but also knowing that it was Sunday of Labor Day weekend and I probably wouldn’t hear for a few days. But an hour and a half later, my agent called and said that they were offering me the part.”  Throughout filming in the small town of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, where the cast holed up at the Drury Suites and carpooled to dinner, Ratajkowski and Affleck’s on-screen time was kept in a bubble: “He’s the main character I’m in touch with during the film; I’m actually hidden from any other parts of his life, like with his sister and obviously his wife, so most of our scenes were together.

Affleck on Batfleck: ‘I wouldn’t have done it if I didn’t think I could’

Say the word “Batfleck” to Ben Affleck and it turns out he’ll laugh.

Toward the end of a wide-ranging conversation with EW about his starring role in Gone Girl—director David Fincher’s adaptation of the bestselling 2012 crime thriller that’s spotlighted in an exclusive cover story in this week’s issue—Affleck opened up about another project that Twitter has been chattering about ever since his involvement with it was announced last August: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The Oscar-winning director-star has both a sense of perspective and humor about the most recent meme to hybridize his name.

Briefly on hiatus from filming the mega-budget superhero action flick in Detroit to attend San Diego’s Comic-Con International—where Affleck stunned the crowd, appearing alongside co-star Henry Cavill and director Zack Snyder to debut footage from Batman v. Superman but giving no interviews—Affleck appeared to have packed on pounds of muscle in the service of portraying a decidedly un-Bale-like kind of Batman/Bruce Wayne. That is, one in his mid-forties, his hair flecked with grey.

He remained tight-lipped about the particulars of the 3D follow-up to Snyder’s Man of Steel that’s set to reach theaters in March 2016, part of a DC cinematic universe that will also eventually include a Justice League movie. But for the first time, Affleck addressed certain issues—in particular, the fan freak-out surrounding his casting— about which he’s until now remained resolutely silent.

EW: So what it’s like to portray Batman?

BEN AFFLECK: I’m right in the middle of shooting now. It’s a process that I’ll probably have better perspective on when I’m done. I can tell you that every time I do a role, it’s the responsibility of an actor to get their physical self as close to the role as possible. And Batman’s obviously got a set of expectations that are tough. So I spent a lot of time working out. And it’s a far cry from Gone Girl where my character is described as “puffy and hungover.” I want you to know I worked equally hard at both! [laughs]

It feels slightly ridiculous using the word “outcry” describing your casting. But there was actual outcry—a lot of people freaked when they heard about Batfleck. To what extent did all that get under your skin?

Before I took the role, Warner Bros. gave me a bunch of past reactions to casting and said, “Are you sure you want to get into this? This is part and parcel of these movies now. There’s a lot of active fans with a lot of opinions.” To me, having been through a certain amount of that, it doesn’t really… Everyone’s entitled to their opinion. I wouldn’t have taken the part if I didn’t trust my instincts in terms of the filmmaking. I think Chris Terrio wrote a terrific script. Zack’s a great visual director. And there’s an interesting take. I wouldn’t have done it if I didn’t think I could do it. I have the benefit of a lot of that understanding. But also, everyone is entitled to their opinion. That’s a big part of this international sport. The Fifty Shades of Grey kid or whatever it is. That’s sort of become a thing.

Fans feel like their vote counts.

You know what? It’s great that people do care that much. They want to see the movie that much. And it is incumbent on you to honor the story. There are the Greek myths and these are the American myths. The American myths are these superheroes. People care about ‘em a lot. And it’s incumbent on you to do a good job and make it as excellent as you possibly can. At the end of the day, the movie’s all that matters.

Magazine Scans: Entertainment Weekly – Gone Girl Feature


Entertainment Weekly | August 29


This fall, Ben Affleck will be thrust back into the spotlight, but his prominence will have nothing to do with his humanitarian work or his role as Batman. He’s the lead in David Fincher‘s “Gone Girl,” but the director says that Affleck’s experience in the limelight made him the perfect choice for a movie about a man suspected of having a role in the disappearance of his wife who subsequently faces intense media scrutiny.

He knows “what it’s like to be hunted,” the director tells EW. “We knew we needed somebody who was charming and could be seductive, who could be a ladies man, a guy’s guy, a frat boy. But most important, [someone] who had the wits and experience of knowing that situation. The gift of having Ben Affleck is that this is a guy who knows. He knows what a lose-lose situation is and understands what’s funny about it, however sad.”

Affleck concurs, telling the magazine, “I knew what it was like to have the tabloid world paying attention to me and ascribing negative motivations to whatever I might be engaging in. I knew what it was to be cast in a soap opera I had no control over.” [Playlist]
