20th Century Fox just provided this holiday treat to fans of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl. The film version of the bestselling thriller heads to theaters in October 2014 with Rosamund Pike in the lead role of Amy Dunne and Ben Affleck as her husband, Nick, and the new photo shows Affleck asking for help locating his wife while standing in front of a ‘Missing’ poster. Directed by David Fincher, Gone Girl also features Missi Pyle, Neil Patrick Harris, and Patrick Fugit.
The Plot:
On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick Dunne’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick Dunne isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but hearing from Amy through flashbacks in her diary reveal the perky 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 left in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?
