13 Movies Like Gone Girl That Thriller Fans Need To Watch

"Gone Girl" is one of the most popular mystery novels of the postmodern era. Before publication, expectations for the book were high, as author Gillian Flynn's previous works, "Sharp Objects" and "Dark Places," had established her as a sharp, cunning writer unafraid to tackle truly twisted material. "Gone Girl" became a sensation when it hit bookshelves in 2012; the question "Who is Amy Dunne?" haunted both the novel's characters and an audience of mystery fans.Hollywood quickly turned its atten...

Mindhunter Season 3 'Might Actually Happen' If Fans Make Enough Noise, Says Series Director

Last week, Netflix teased a mysterious new project from David Fincher and the "Mindhunter" hive rose up to stake their claim.

The Visuals Of The Batman Trailer Owe A Lot To David Fincher's Se7en

The Batman Trailer: The Dark Knight Returns, And This Time He's Robert Pattinson

The Dark Knight returns, and this time he's Robert Pattinson. In "The Batman," Pattinson becomes the new Caped Crusader -- but this is not another origin film. Instead, Batman has been operating in Gotham City for over a year now, and while not everyone is used to the masked vigilante yet, he's clearly already developed a rapport with cop James Gordon, played this time by Jeffrey Wright. Folks, I'm skeptical by nature, and when this project was first announced, I wasn't entirely on board. Not be...

The 14 Greatest Thrillers Of The 21st Century

The thriller is one of the hardest genres to define, because thrillers cross over so much with other genres. From the erotic thriller, the psychological thriller, the cold war thriller, the detective thriller, and all the way through to the action thriller — and let's not forget to take a detour into the seedy underbelly of the neo-noir -- this really is the genre that has something for everyone. While the '80s and '90s were a heyday for erotic thrillers, the 21st century brought a fresh injecti...

David Fincher's New Netflix Show Is Voir, A Documentary Series About Cinema

The previously teased David Fincher/Netflix announcement has been revealed and, just to get this out of the way, it has nothing to do with "Mindhunter." Rather, the streaming service has revealed that Fincher is producing a new docuseries celebrating the art that is cinema. A brief teaser has been revealed, though it is admittedly a bit vague.

It's time again for another round-up of the latest Blu-ray releases. And yes, sure, these movies are on VOD, too!

Netflix Is Teasing Some Kind Of Mysterious David Fincher Announcement

Well, that's one way to blow up social media.

The 14 Greatest Biopics Of The 21st Century

The traditional biopic seems like it should be pretty easy to make. After all, the subject has already done all the hard work. You just need to pick the best bits of their lives and slap them up on the big screen, right? But that's where things start to get tricky. Do you recreate a list of chronological events that follow the subject from the cradle to grave, and hope that a classically-trained English actor can elevate the film beyond its fairly uninspired structure? Do hone in on one specific...

Gone Girl Ending Explained: She Wants You To Be Your Best

Adapted from Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel by the author herself, David Fincher's "Gone Girl" isn't a movie that screams "aspirational" in the way that a show like "Ted Lasso" does. However, for a certain breed of cinephile -- someone who prefers dark dramas to rom-coms -- "Gone Girl" might be the only date movie you'll ever need.Fincher's previous film, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," marketed itself as "The Feel-Bad Movie of Christmas."

Guillermo Del Toro's Nightmare Alley Loses Composer Alexandre Desplat

As Guillermo del Toro pushes to cut together his latest feature film in time for its December release, a new setback comes in the form of an exit. Two-time Oscar-winner Alexandre Desplat was all set to write the music for del Toro's noir thriller "Nightmare Alley," but the French composer had to back out of production due to scheduling conflicts. He is an early favorite to grab an Oscar nomination for his work on Wes Anderson's latest feature, "The French Dispatch," but the one-two punch of an A...

The 10 Scariest Scenes From The Alien Franchise

Ridley Scott's "Alien" is a profound, seminal piece of science fiction and horror. In space, no one can truly hear you scream (per the first movie's official tagline), though just because it's unheard, it doesn't mean it's not there. With a profound scope, unmatched awe, gorgeous visuals, and bonafide body horror, the series is operatic, high-concept horror -- basically, a haunted house series set in space. With talented directors at the helm, the Alien series offers visions of a horrific future...

Fight Club Ending Explained: I Am Jack's Lack Of Confusion

The first rule of Fight Club is to never talk about it -- but rules are made to be broken. David Fincher's 1999 film "Fight Club," based on the 1996 novel of the same name by Chuck Palahniuk, was extremely controversial upon release and has become a cult classic in the years since. One thing that still polarizes audiences is the shocking twist ending, which isn't nearly as explicitly explained in the movie as in its source material. Buckle up, space monkeys, because it's time to break down the e...

17 Horror Movies Based On True Stories That Will Creep You Out

The phrase "based on true events," is guaranteed to generate hype for any horror movie. Horror is already meant to be terrifying, so declaring that it actually happened only ups a film's fear factor. It also generates a ton of buzz, as curious viewers want to know the story behind a film, as well as how true it actually is. After all, the world is a terrifying place. Serial killers like Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer targeted and killed young people to satiate their violent impulses. Claims regard...

Robert Downey Jr Thinks This Is His Best Role – And He's Right

After pulling off the 2008 double whammy of starring in the blockbuster "Iron Man" and getting nominated for an Oscar for the hit comedy "Tropic Thunder," it was official: Robert Downey Jr. became a superstar. This was a particularly crazy development because by that point the son of famed underground filmmaker Robert Downey Sr. had been appearing onscreen for decades, and had only a few years before been considered a drug burnout, box office poison, and an all-around lost cause.Of course he did...

Zodiac Ending Explained: Unlocking The Mystery Of David Fincher's Film

"Zodiac" is one of the best movies of the last 20 years, and I mean that in all sincerity – no hyperbole here. David Fincher's blend of journalistic investigation and serial killer thriller is a sprawling, multi-part saga that by its very design cannot have a true conclusive ending. Why? Because the Zodiac Killer was never caught. But "Zodiac" thinks it has a pretty good idea of who the killer was, and it's not afraid to putt that theory forth and let the audience make up their own mind. So let'...

14 Movie Roles Denzel Washington Should Have Turned Down

It goes without saying that Denzel Washington is a living legend -- a man so inherent to our perception of cinematic talent that his mere presence is considered an improvement to any film. Washington-starring movies become, in their own inevitable way, Washington-esque movies. "Malcolm X," "Fences," "Crimson Tide," and "Training Day" -- with just a couple of lines here and a forehead rub there, each one becomes Washington material in the most Denzel-ion sort of way.With Washington at the ripe ag...
