Gone Girl AND Inherent Vice to debut at NY Film Festival

LOVE this newest poster for Gone Girl!

You bookish movie fans living in the big apple have all the fun. While David Fincher's Gone Girl will open the 52nd New York Film Festival this fall, the Film Society of Lincoln Center has announced that Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice will make its world premiere as the Centerpiece gala selection on Saturday, October 4. 

That's more than two months before the rest of will be able to see Inherent Vice, slated to open in limited release on December 12th, expanding to the rest of the universe on January 9th, 2015. 

While Pynchon was involved with Pr├╝fstand II, a German language 'documentary' loosely based on Gravity's Rainbow, Inherent Vice is the first feature film adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel. I've shared some images and news on the Inherent Vice movie here and here which stars Joaquin Phoenix and Josh Brolin, along with Reese Witherspoon, Benicio Del Toro, Owen Wilson, Martin Short, Jena Malone, Joanna Newsom and new face Katherine Waterston - the daughter of the great, gravelly-voiced actor, Sam Waterston.

Anderson is a favorite at the festival whose director and chair of the selection committee said about the writer/director -
“Every new Paul Thomas Anderson movie is an event, an experience -- when the lights come up, you feel like you’ve been somewhere, and come back with your mind altered. 'Inherent Vice' is a journey through the past, bringing the texture of the early 70s SoCal counterculture back to full blown life. It’s a wildly funny, deeply soulful, richly detailed, and altogether stunning movie."

I'm a little disgruntled that Inherent Vice, shot in SoCal, about SoCal, 
isn't premiering in SoCal! 
The New York Film Festival runs from September 26-October 12, which makes it one of the preferred film tests for those making the march to award season.

Quick! Without googling, which famous television writer and actor's mother designed this poster for the New York Film Festival?
