Gone Girl film first look: Ben Affleck curls around 'dead' Rosamund Pike in magazine photoshoot
The actors are pictured lying on an autopsy in David Pincher's creepy cover
Ben Affleck has been photographed embracing Gone Girl co-star Rosamund Pike's 'dead' body for the chilling cover of Entertainment Weekly magazine.
Shot by the film's director David Fincher, the promotional image presents the Argo actor attempting to spoon Pike’s character, Amy Dunne, as she lies on an autopsy table.
Affleck, 41, plays unemployed writer Nick Dunne in the forthcoming film adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling thriller. Nick becomes the chief suspect in a possible murder investigation when Amy disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary.
Fincher meanwhile, is the acclaimed directorial talent behind The Social Network and the 2011 film adaptation of Stieg Larsson's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
Gone Girl author Flynn was excited at the prospect of re-writing her novel for the silver screen. “There was something thrilling about taking this piece of work that I’d spent about two years painstakingly putting together with all its eight million LEGO pieces and take a hammer to it and bash it apart and reassemble it into a movie,” she said.
Gone Girl is due in cinemas on 3 October.
