This week's cover of Entertainment Weekly features Ben Affleck and a peaked Rosamund Pike, in character for David Fincher's "Gone Girl," adapted from Gillian Flynn's bestselling mystery thriller. The film hits theaters almost exactly ten months from now, on October 3. Check out the full cover, which was photographed by Fincher (inspired by that infamous Ono/Lennon Rolling Stone cover--Affleck stays clothed), plus the first released image from the film, below.

"Gone Girl" also stars Tyler Perry, Neil Patrick Harris, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit, Scott McNairy and Emily Ratajkowski (of "Blurred Lines" music video fame). Reportedly Fincher has been living up to his signature obsessiveness with the film, averaging 50 takes per scene when on location in Southeast Missouri back in October.
