'Gone Girl' Movie Ending Remains Unchanged, Critics Confirm
While initial reports said the ending for the moving Gone Girl would be different than the book, the first reviews from critics confirm that the ending has gone unchanged.
“Ben [Affleck] was so shocked by it,” author Gillian Flynn previously told EW of the screenplay she wrote. “He would say, ‘This is a whole new third act! She literally threw that third act out and started from scratch.’”
Well, looks like Gillian was either trying to throw us for a loop or a different screenplay was used!
“Despite published reports that major plot changes were being made, particularly in the third act, this simply isn’t true; it’s an extremely faithful adaptation of what is ultimately a withering critique of the dynamics of marriage,” THR film critic Todd McCarthy wrote in his review.
