If you’re way behind and haven’t even read the book yet, now you have to/get to imagine Ben Affleck instead of whatever your brain would’ve conjured up for Nick Dunne.

Twentieth Century Fox has released a still image from the film adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl — see it below.

Rosamund Pike plays Nick’s missing wife, Amy.

(You may wanna just read the book already, as I fear a SPOILER FREAKOUT from anything else I could type here about the characters or plot!)

Gone Girl is scheduled for October 2014.
