Emily Blunt Stars in First Trailer for 'The Girl on the Train' Adaptation
"I saw her! I saw her from the train." Universal has debuted a trailer for the upcoming adaptation The Girl on the Train, based on the popular mystery-thriller book of the same name. Emily Blunt stars as Rachel, a woman living her life after divorce, taking the train every day to and from work seemingly living a good life again. However, one day watching another family a few houses down from where her ex-husband lives, she notices something weird. The next day Rachel wakes up and hears that another woman went missing and she becomes invested in trying to find out what happened to Megan, where she is, and what exactly she herself was up to that same night Megan went missing. The ensemble cast includes Haley Bennett, Luke Evans, Rebecca Ferguson, Laura Prepon, Edgar Ramírez, Allison Janney, Justin Theroux and Lisa Kudrow. This isn't really my kind of film, but some of you may be intrigued by the mysterious story.
Here's the first official trailer for Tate Taylor's The Girl on the Train, first found via The Playlist:
The story of Rachel Watson's life post-divorce. Every day, she takes the train in to work in London, and every day the train passes by her old house. The house she lived in with her husband, who still lives there, with his new wife and child. As she attempts to not focus on her pain, she starts watching a couple a few houses down -- Megan and Scott Hipwell. She creates a wonderful dream life for them in her head, about how they are a perfect happy family. And then one day, as the train passes, she sees something shocking, filling her with rage. The next day, she wakes up with a horrible hangover, various wounds and bruises, and no memory of the night before. She has only a feeling: something bad happened. Then come the TV reports: Megan Hipwell is missing. The Girl on the Train is directed by Tate Taylor (of The Help, Get on Up), from a screenplay adapted by Erin Cressida Wilson, based on bestselling book of the same name by Paula Hawkins. The film opens in theaters everywhere on October 7th, 2016 this fall. Anyone interested?

Grips, this junk will no doubt be a huge hit, a la Shades of Grey, as it looks like that in the trailer with the added 'thriller/mystery' plot. Too bad. I really like Emily Blunt. Even had the good fortune to meet her in a Bed and Bath in L.A. and chatted with her for around 10 minutes. Just a charming, friendly, intelligent and talented woman. I also have liked Rebecca Ferguson since seeing her in The White Queen on cable. So, I don't know about this one. I tried to read the book and thought is just simplistic and shallow and did women a disservice as the main character was such a whining victim. Chick Lit. Very, very badly written as was the Grey junk, but the folks sure didn't seem to mind...or even notice...lol...And the same director who did the cotton candy movie The Help directed this? I'll have to take a pass on this until it comes around on cable just to watch Ms. Blunt and Ms. Furguson.

I met Blunt, too. She was as nice as you said she was though I didn't know she loved fart jokes.

Murdering people is just another way of doing business just like war is another way of making politics. But,for decades, Hollywood really likes the first pattern better. Makes people less think, I guess. Having said that, I must admit, I like Emily Blunt, don't know why, she has some natural perceptiveness in her (according to movies I saw with her). So, she's going to be the only reason to watch this ...

Clever poster, but this just looks like another mystery movie.

Sounds like somebody was trying really hard to write a Hitchcock story...
