What a year it has been for Neil Patrick Harris. The actor said goodbye to Barney Stinson, a character he play for nine seasons on How I Met Your Mother, won a Tony Award for bringing Hedwig, an East German transgender singer, to Broadway, and creeped out millions with his supporting role in Gone Girl, which recently debuted in theaters. It can be hard to shed a popular TV persona, but Harris, who had to do it two decades before with Doogie Howser, has put Barney to rest. Literally.
It’s been one remarkable year for actress Carrie Coon, who first wowed audiences on stage with her Tony-nominated performance as Honey in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? She followed that performance with the role of Nora Durst, a woman who lost her husband and two kids during the rapture in the hit HBO series The Leftovers. Now she can be seen in her first film as Margo Dunne, twin sister to Ben Affleck‘s character Nick, in the big screen adaptation of Gone Girl (Oct. 3).
This fall there is no shortage of book adaptations making their way to the big screen. Just like we saw over the summer, studios are turning to literary bestsellers in order to capture the same success on the big screen. In fact, at least 15 stories of all genres are getting the big budget treatment. While it remains to be seen just how well each film will fair at the box office, we know the source material is a hit.
Rosamund Pike, the star of the highly anticipated film, Gone Girl, is about to get a lot of attention for her standout role as Amy Elliott Dunne, a disillusioned housewife who suddenly disappears on her fifth wedding anniversary. The part is one intense (and showy) role, and will surely stick with audiences well after the end credits stop rolling.
Gone Girl, one of the most anticipated films of 2014, is finally making its debut in theaters following what felt like years of hype. And thankfully, the movie about a woman who’s gone missing and the husband left to chase after her ghost lives up to every hyperbolic statement that has been said ahead of its release. Read more…
