If you were under the strange notion that this October's Gone Girl would be a lighthearted affair, this magazine cover will quickly disabuse you of that notion.

Since the critically acclaimed drama ended its five-season run back in 2011, many passionate fans of the series have been waiting to see if a much-discussed movie continuation would actually happen, becoming a true oddity: a movie based on a non-fiction book about a real Texas high school football team leading to a TV show of the same name about a fictitious Texas high school football team leading to another movie about college football following characters from the show.
