New Dark Places Clip Lives Up to the Movie’s Name


After the critical and commercial success of David Fincher's Gone Girl, expectations for Dark Places, adapted from Gillian Flynn's second novel, have been swelling steadily. Directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner (the French love the freaky stuff) and starring a coterie of great actresses (Charlize Theron, Christina Hendricks, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Drea de Matteo), as well as Corey Stoll and Tye Sheridan, the film appears to be keeping in spirit with Flynn’s tar-black novel. The newest clip, or extrait, shows Theron approaching a seedy building while she says, via voice-over, "I'd been offered all sorts of twisted deals over the years." Abruptly, the shrill feedback of an underground nightclub cuts in. We’re told this is a KC — Kill Club. Sounds fun. Between the trailers and this clip, the film looks like a dark entity indeed.
