The anticipation for the film adaptation of Gillian Flynn's thriller novel continues to rise.

An exclusive still photographed by Gone Girl director David Fincher was released via Entertainment Weekly early Wednesday, Jan. 8.

The still features Ben Affleck’s Nick Dune lovingly cradling the corpse of his wife Amy (Roasmund Pike) while on top of an autopsy table.

Twentieth Century Fox released a still in late December of a distraught Nick addressing a crowd, while a “missing person” poster with a picture of his wife's face is displayed behind him.

Based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Flynn, Gone Girl tells the thrilling story of Amy and Nick’s tumultuous marriage, and is primarily based on the disappearance of Amy during their fifth anniversary, making Nick the prime suspect.

With the screenplay adapted by Flynn, the film also stars Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Casey Williams, Scott McNairy, Kim Dickens, and Emily Ratajkowski. Reese Witherspoon is producing the movie, along with Bruna Papandrea and Leslie Dixon.

Gone Girl has a release date of Oct. 3, 2014.
