Before he puts on the cowl and squares off against Superman in Batman vs. Superman, Ben Affleck will be the lead in David Fincher’s upcoming thriller Gone Girl. The film is adapted from Gillian Flynn’s best-selling novel about a wife who goes missing on her fifth wedding anniversary. Affleck stars as the husband, along with Rosamund Pike as his missing wife.

The first image from the thriller, which you can see above, has arrived online and it shows a distraught Affleck as he addresses a crowd. As you can tell, it’s an early tease for a film that’s sure to stir up attention when it hits theaters next October.

Synopsis From The Novel:

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 mansion 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?

Gone Girl will be released on October 18th, 2014. David Fincher is directing from a screenplay by author Gillian FlynnKim DickensPatrick FugitTyler Perry, and Neil Patrick Harris co-star in the film. Are you looking forward to this?
