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...

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...

Is there anything Andrew Garfield can't do? Obviously, the answer is no. I mean, we're talking about the same guy who made tech billionaire Eduardo Savarin sympathetic in "The Social Network," so Garfield's talent really can't be ignored.

Inside the disastrous early days of the Thiel Fellowship and the depression, mental health issues, and drug abuse that followed

John Lamparski/Getty Images After reading the script for "The Social Network," Peter Thiel didn't like how the film portrayed him. He came up with the fellowship idea while on a plane, and the program's poor planning was disastrous for fellows. Only a few fellows found success, and some struggled with mental health issues and drug abuse, writes Max Chafkin in his new book. See more stories on Insider's business page. When Peter Thiel announced the Thiel Fellowship at a TechCru...

The 20 Best Villains From Non-Comic Book Movies Ranked

You ever notice that there aren't that many articles breaking down the best heroes in cinematic history? That's because, at some basic level, heroes are all similar: They all have the same noble inclinations and can usually be counted on to do the right thing. Otherwise, they wouldn't be heroes. Villains, on the other hand, are deliciously varied; every antagonist is evil in their own unique way. The baddies we list here run the gamut from the ultimately redeemable to completely unrepentant, fro...

Tinder adds a new home for interactive, social features with launch of Tinder Explore

Twitter wants you to tweet to interest-based communities, not just followers

Twitter is a useful place for following breaking news and keeping up with what the people you’re already interested in are doing, but its relative dearth of discovery features and a lack of organized community spaces make it pretty hard to connect with anyone you aren’t actively seeking out. The company is thinking about changing that. Twitter is on a tear with new features lately and its latest experiment, called Communities, is designed to make it easier to connect around shared interests. Use...

David Fincher's Protagonists Ranked Worst To Best

Since 1992, David Fincher has constructed a signature style out of hefty, character-driven thrillers. Fincher's TV shows are just as heady as his films, too, with protagonists that aren't typical heroes, but flawed people. In fact, that theme even extends to his music video work, with his 1990 video for Aerosmith's "Janie's Got a Gun" foretelling the kind of director Fincher was destined to be. Thus, it's the characters who shape the core of a Fincher film; the settings are just window dressing ...

Spencer Trailer: Kristen Stewart Is Very Sad As Princess Diana

Kristen Stewart is Princess Diana in the first "Spencer" trailer. As he did with "Jackie," director Pablo Larraín focuses on a few days in the life of a famous female figure, and the results look nothing short of breathtaking. The film is described as "an imagining of what might have happened" during a royal family Christmas holiday in 1991. The result appear gorgeous, melancholy, and pretty damn great, complete with Stewart wandering through foggy landscapes as if she were in a Gothic romance. ...

4400 Season 1: Release Date, Cast and More

The sci-fi series The 4400 originally ran on USA Network from 2004-2007, but The CW is about to reboot it with a brand new title. The new iteration will be known simply as 4400, which I have to imagine makes Justin Timberlake’s The Social Network character very happy.
