Watch: Second Trailer for 'The Girl on the Train' Starring Emily Blunt
Universal has debuted a new trailer for the adaptation of the book The Girl on the Train, starring Emily Blunt as "the girl on the train". Blunt plays Rachel, a woman living her life after divorce, taking the train every day to and from work. One day watching a 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 becomes invested in trying to find out what happened to Megan, where she went, 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 is an improvement over the first trailer, but I'm still not sure it'll be any good. Enjoy.
Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for Tate Taylor's The Girl on the Train, direct from YouTube:
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?

Watching likeable actresses or actors is one thing but watching bad movie with them is another thing. This is how this looks to me ...

You will forgive me Bo, but from time to time I am trying to figure out what you did in the film industry; so more and more I started to think you must be some kind of cameraman since you know whole lot about film photography. You don't have to confirm it, it's just a guess I can't resist. As for the film, I agree on many things you said. Since I haven't read the book and judging from the trailer, this looks, really, very cliche at least. It looks like we have to discover the same old story about who for god sake done it ... Oh god, no. I mean, that still can work sometimes, but it should be more about the human relationships, how people are changed by things that happened to them and not about friking murder. I mean, from most of the films today, everything that changes people is shooting somebody. Come on. Yeah, shallow, right you said ...

Hey Bo, I have to give you an answer about this here and not somewhere else. So, thanks for all that you've written. It's impressive and it looks like you are one real and accomplished person. I am very glad I can communicate with you here like this. I guess you could be probably found on imdb (no, I didn't try that, that idea just came to me). Not everybody get the chance to share such an experience. I am very much glad for you since it looks you had your piece of satisfaction in cultivating and chasing your, huh, dreams, right? I usually can detect some sensibility in your sentences and see that you had some nice part of creative history in your life. And I see where ti comes from. What man, what woman, what person can ask for more? A better world? Probably, but not so easily in near future. So, people do what they can in meantime. And it looks you embraced your life and all the good things that came along and that you also meticulously worked on all that. So, you probably have some developed and artistically informed sense of film making. Oh, I can only imagine how you feel whenever some new film comes out and it claims to be some new avant-garde piece of cinema and you can see right through its shallowness. Oh, you certainly have stories to tell. The interesting part, and I see it in a good way, is the fact that you pursued your interest and not you career of possible director. Doing many things, trying to encompass more and not just a piece of it. That says something about the person. About the fact that such a person has been keen to develop himself as a whole creative individual and not just part of it. I could entertain an idea of renaissance film person here, you know. Yeah, I also know those cultural (film and renaissance) terms collide historically, but it looks like it is also telling about a lifelong struggle not to live fragmented life, I guess. Thank you one more time. Cheers Bo... And yeah, later ...

Hey Bo. Just stumbled upon your post here. I like to read passionate guys comments. ;D Fresco-secco painting is to film photography what Photoshop is to digital photography. But fortunately, we still have great DP like El Chivo, Colin Watkinson or Darius Khondji to name few.

Hi again Bo. to be honest, I'm not all that close minded with regards to the digital filming. I can enjoy a movie shot digitally if the "film" feel is there. You didn't like the Revenant. I for myself found it a very immersive experience. The low angle / wide angle combination were used masterfully, and succeeded in creating a visceral reaction. I felt the cold, the starvation and the despair while watching Leo struggling throw the wilderness. What matters for me when I watch a movie is the "film" look, not the "grain" presence. and correct me if I'm wrong, this could be fulfilled only when you use great lenses. there I said it. I am not a "grain" fan. I can deal without them, as long as the cinematography doesn't look like a home video. that's why I abhor found footage movies and movies that overuse the shaky cam technique.
