The ‘The Girl on the Train’ movie trailer, starring Emily Blunt, has just hit the web and has quickly created a buzz with its intriguing plot that promises an engaging narration with a lot more mystery and thrill. The film adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ best-selling 2015 thriller will be released in theaters on October 7, 2016.
Since December 2015, Universal Pictures and DreamWorks are working on the mystery-thriller drama that’s been directed by Tate Taylor (The Help) and screen written by Erin Cressida Wilson.
The film follows a 32-year-old alcoholic Rachel Watson’s (played by Emily Blunt) life after her divorce from Tom, who is now married to another woman, Anna (played by Rebecca Ferguson), and has a child.
As her daily routine, Rachel takes the commuter train to work which passes by her old house in which her ex-husband still lives with his new family. To cope with her pain, she started watching the couple Megan and Scott (played by Luke Evans and Haley Bennett) who lives just a few houses down the lane. She then created an image of a perfect couple and even feels like she knows them as “Jess and Jason”.
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 comes the TV reports: Megan Hipwell is missing. Rachel becomes invested in the case and tries to find out what happened to Megan, where she is, and what exactly she herself was up to the same night Megan went missing. [From the official synopsis]
The trailer seems really promising with such an engaging and suspense-filled storyline. The film also stars Justin Theroux, Edgar Ramirez, and Allison Janney. ‘The Girl on the Train’ is one of the most anticipated films of this year that will premiere in theatres on October 7.
