Charlize Theron just had a major box office hit with ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’ Now she’s following it up with another movie that’s probably going to light up the box office, too. It’s called ‘Dark Places,’ and it’s the film adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s novel of the same name. Gillian is the same author who wrote ‘Gone Girl.’
I haven’t read ‘Dark Places,’ but I’ve heard it’s similar in tone to ‘Gone Girl.’ If that’s the case, then Charlize might be hitting the red carpet next winter after garnering some more awards nominations! Charlize’s character is a woman who joins a club that solves murder mysteries. They take an interest in a very personal case for her: her brother was convicted of murdering their family while he was still in high school. OMG.
Given that this is a Gillian Flynn story, you know this case won’t be that simple. I know I’ll be checking out ‘Dark Places.’ The only question for me is, will I check out the book first? I haven’t decided ;). Have you read ‘Dark Places’? If you have, then what did you think of it? This clip with Corey Stoll below reveals the intensity of the movie!
