Directed by: Steve McQueen
Written by: Gillian Flynn

No idea if this will actually be good or not (I mean, it's McQueen, so almost certainly yes), but good lord, what a cast.

Like I wrote in the Shoutbox: I was expecting something different. I didn't know it was by the writer of Gone Girl, and I find the Fincher movie desperate to be more than its material—but ultimately it's a silly pulp story. I wish Fincher and McQueen would do something else, especially with TV being the kingdom of silly pulp stories. But it might be fun.

I felt like Gone Girl was enough of a deconstruction of the genre to elevate it to a degree. His version of Girl With a Dragon Tattoo was much more frivolous, in my opinion.

In regards to this trailer, it's really hard to get a read on what level of depth this one actually has. I'm mostly excited about the congregation of so many amazing actors (ignoring Michelle Rodriguez for the moment).

The Gone Girl Prestige Universe (see: Sharp Objects) meets the Taken universe is still not what I expected from Steve McQueen.
