Adapted by Gillian Flynn from her best-selling thriller, the film follows the breakdown of the couple’s relationship as Amy is reported missing leading the police to suspect Nick of murdering his wife.

Directed by Oscar-winner David Fincher (The Social Network, Fight Club), the film stars Neil Patrick Harris as Amy’s  ex-boyfriend Desi Collings, Tyler Perry as big-shot lawyer Tanner Bolt and Carrie Coon as Nick’s sister Margo.

Model and “Blurred Lines” dancer Emily Ratajkowski also makes her big screen debut as Andie, a university student who Nick has an affair with.

The film received positive reviews from critics when it premiered to press earlier this week.

The Independent’s chief film critic Geoffrey Macnab called the adaptation “slippery, deceptive and immensely pleasurable”, adding that Rosamund Pike gives “the performance of her screen career so far”.

Gone Girl is released in the UK on 2 October and in the US on 3 October.
