Ben Affleck’s full-frontal debut in David Fincher’s Gone Girl has received almost as much press as Ebola, which is fitting since you’re just about as likely to come into firsthand contact with either. And we think it could be the next great movie marketing strategy. Hey, it’s harder than ever to fill a movie theater these days, why not get people excited.
Still reviews have come back disappointed. Not in the film, but the flash — too dark, too short, too brief.
But let’s not forget it isn’t the only full frontal display in the film. Co-star Neil Patrick Harris‘ angry inch also pops up on the screen. Two for the price of one.
When asked about the revealing moment, he told Slate, “Apparently, you can, yes. Had I been able to film my scene in a nice steamy, warm shower, perhaps there would’ve been more to talk about. But in my particular circumstance there was a lot of blood flowing…elsewhere.”
Guess you have to see the film to know what he’s talking about.
I saw the movie…..and NPH’s peen, and that was before I read that it was a possibility. So, without warning, there it was. But he’s right……it wasn’t under the best circumstances.
As for Ben Affleck’s, I had read about it, heard about it, & been told where to look for it, but alas…….all hype, no peen.
I am more of an ass man. I would rather see a beautiful bubble butt in all its glory than a flaccid penis.
I was so thirsty to see Big Ben I saw the movie last Friday. I’m pretty sure I saw NPH peen, but I missed Ben. I knew what scene it was. I was waiting for it. And I spent so much time scanning the screen that I missed it. I didn’t know where to look, and then it was gone.
You can imagine my disappointment. I assumed video stills would be up immediately, but I haven’t found any. Does anyone know of any screenshots?
They’re doing the same thing they always do, making homoerotic suggestions to get gays and women into the movie, and basically lying.
Nice the Dogie’s chest hair is finally being allowed to have some screen time. The coverage seems to be increasing.
Eventually, both will find their way onto the internet. Who knows, maybe both will find greater (ahem) exposure in the director’s cut DVD. In either case, I’m told this is actually a good movie that’s worth seeing on its own merits.
For a film that’s supposed to be so “good,” the penis sensationalism is silly and tacky. That said, don’t get the appeal of an aging twink’s limp, pink penis!
@enlightenone: Wow, I’ve never thought of NPH as an aging twink before.
@Cam: Some people *did* see peen though. Not the head, but the shaft. Apparently, it was in the bottom center of the screen. I was scanning the top and right side at the time. Just my luck. It ruined my mood afterward.
I wonder if Neil considers this his biggist success; having his willie exposed. Its sad to know for a fact, yes for a fact that some gay guys paid to see these movies just to catch a glimps of penis. Christ, you would probably see more at your local locker room at the gym.
I’m so damn sick of seeing this guy’s face on every gay-centric non porn site I click on. He hasn’t done anything offensive, but this is over kill. He’s officially on the Davey Wavey, Tom Daley list at this point.
People I avoid at all costs.
@Wooly: Or you can steal a peek of your boyfriend’s/partner/spouse/husband’s dick. We just need to stretch our minds and our mouths!
@Black Pegasus: What a coincidence, we share the same list!
@Wooly: I just want it to be clear I read the Gone Girl book, and had plans to see the movie for at least a year before I knew there would be nudity in it. I know you didn’t mention me specifically, but I want that to be clear.
