7 'Dark Places' Trailer Moments That Prove The Movie Will Be Just As Chilling As The Gillian Flynn Novel It's Based On

For those who love the mind-numbingly twisted plot of Gone Girl, get ready: based on the new trailer for Dark Places — aka, a new adaptation of another Gillian Flynn-penned novel — this movie is going to be just as intense, if not more-so. For those not familiar, Dark Places was published in 2009, three years before Flynn introduced us to Gone Girl. The novel tells the story of a grown woman named Libby Day who is trying to determine if her brother was responsible for the murder of their family in the '80s. She's approached by a member of a group called the Kill Club, who attempt to solve crimes.

In the movie, Charlize Theron plays the grown version of Libby, while Nicholas Hoult plays Lyle, who introduces her to the Kill Club. Other amazing casting decisions include Christina Hendricks, who plays Libby's mother Patty, Corey Stoll plays the adult version of Libby's brother and Chloë Grace Moretz plays the childhood girlfriend of Libby's brother. Excited yet?

As is standard with Flynn's works, the Dark Places trailer only shows the beginning of what viewers will see. Expect a lot of plot twists and, of course, some pretty sad memories on Libby's part.

Dark Places hits theaters on Aug. 7, but you can check out the moment intense moments from the trailer below.
