What To Expect
On the fifth anniversary of their marriage, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) discovers that his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) has gone missing. It becomes breaking news all over the media – and he is thrown into the spotlight. His awkward behaviour leads the public to think that he might have had a hand in her disappearance.
The couple’s marriage was filled with betrayal, financial problems, disputes and detachment – and the investigating detective makes discoveries that indicate Nick really didn’t know his wife: Turns out she was pregnant and she’s wanted to buy a gun.
Finding evidence to clear his name, Nick turns to his twin sister for help and they hire a defence attorney Tanner Bolt (Tyler Perry) who specializes in defending husbands who are falsely accused of killing their wives.
Expect an epic plot twist when Nick discovers the shocking truth!
