As stars gather in Italy for George Clooney's impending wedding to the beautiful Amal Alamuddin, it appears as if close pal Ben Affleck has prioritised his work first.
The 42-year-old actor was seen attending the premiere of Gone Girl during the New York Film Festival on Friday evening, while George kicked off his rehearsal dinner in Venice.
Dressed in a stately blue suit with a bronze tie, the Argo star cut a fine figure on the red carpet alongside his co-star Rosamund Pike, who looked stunning in a flowing black gown.
The new movie, which also Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry, sees Affleck star as Nick Dunne, whose wife Amy vanishes on their fifth wedding anniversary.
Her disappearance becomes the focus of an intense media circus and Nick sees the spotlight turned on him when it's suspected that he may not be innocent.
Meanwhile, Affleck's best friend and Good Will Hunting co-star Matt Damon was seen arriving with his wife Luciana Barroso for the meal on Friday evening.
Luciana stunned in a floral dress featuring a keyhole neckline and an empire waist, while Matt wore a three-piece suit with a black shirt.
Hollywood royalty Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are also expected to attend the high profile ceremony this weekend.
The lavish four-day event began with an intimate dinner hosted by Mr Clooney at the exclusive, five-star Cipriani Hotel on the nearby island of Giudecca on Friday night.
Among the guests jetting in, was George's actor cousin Miguel Ferrer, son of screen and singing legend Rosemary Clooney, who was seen arriving with his wife Lori Weintraub.
The centre of Venice will be brought to a temporary standstill on Monday when the small streets and walkways surrounding the will be closed off between 12pm and 2pm to stop tourists and pedestrians from disrupting the carefully-planned proceedings.
Clooney and his British fiancée, 36, will finally tie the knot in a civil ceremony in the palatial 14th century Ca' Farsetti palazzo on Monday. The building houses Venice's town hall.
