IndieWire, where I found a ton of great new photos (below), posits a reasonable question: Is it a clunker? Because one would think an adaptation of a Gillian Flynn book plus this cast would add up to some buzz. Instead it feels very quiet, very under the radar. The only poster and trailer we have so far are geared to the French market — the film's director Gilles Paquet-Brenner is French. If it's not a clunker, is this any way to release a movie?
I will be so disappointed if this gets released quietly via video on demand — I've been following the film's progress since the summer of 2012! — but I guess I'll survive. Here's the link to my take on the best-selling novel. Take a look at the pictures, watch the trailer, and weigh in, below. Are you excited to see the movie? Tweet Charlize Theron at @charlizeAfrica and let her know!
A feature adaptation of Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel, "Dark Places" tells the story of Libby Day, a woman who, at the age of 7, survives the massacre of her family and testifies against her brother as the murderer. Twenty-five years later, a group obsessed with solving notorious crimes confronts her with questions about the horrific event.
