Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike in Gone Girl
The time for "Gone Girl" draws nigh, but most of us plebes have to wait another week to see the David Fincher thriller. Until then, let us enjoy this brief clip of Nick (Ben Affleck) and Amy (Rosamund Pike) meeting for the first time at someone's lame party, where they trade some pithy quips over beer. Amy dodges and parries while Nick charms and cajoles, and it's all just a little bit too clever and fast-talking in that way that smart and smarmy New Yorke writers have of flirting.

It's just 35 seconds of "Gone Girl" glory, but maybe if you watch it on a loop for 2 hours while listening to the score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, you can pretend that October 3rd is already here.
