David Fincher's 'Gone Girl' will open the New York Film Festival

By Will Ashton,

David Fincher fans already have Oct. 3 marked on their calendars as the day that they will finally be able to check out Gone Girl. However, a few lucky people will be able to see it before then, as the movie is now set to open the New York Film Festival.

In an official release from the festival, the film will serve as the opening film at the upcoming film festival on Sept. 27.

In the past couple years, the festival has been known to premiere or at least showcase a number of eventual award heavy-hitters. Last year's opener was Captain Phillips, which would go on to be nominated for Best Picture. Another Best Picture nominee, Her, also premiered at this festival last year.

In fact, Fincher himself is no stranger to premiering his work there himself, as he did the same thing back in 2010 with The Social Network. Considering that movie's success — both at the festival and beyond — it makes sense that Fincher would want to keep the movie's success in check there again, as the new movie is expected a major awards contender.

More news will likely be announced in the next couple days as to what else will be hitting this year's festival line-up. Until then, fans can only hope that this new Fincher movie will line up with his past films. Trent Reznor, the movie's composer, has seen it several times by now, and has stated that it is a "nasty" film, a statement that likely only keeps fans' mouths watering even more.

A new trailer was also released this month.
