This week Twentieth Century Fox tweeted an official still from the upcoming David Fincher directed film, Gone Girl. The film is based on the best-selling novel and stars Ben Affleck. You can see the film still above.
The novel was written by Gillian Flynn and centers on a philandering husband (Affleck), whose wife goes missing on their fifth anniversary.
On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy’s diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?
As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn’t do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?
The film still features Affleck addressing a crowd as he stands in front of a photograph of his missing wife (played by the gorgeous Rosamund Pike).
Gone Girl also stars Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry. It’s scheduled for a Oct. 3, 2014 release.
