The first trailer for The Girl on the Train has hit and it’s pretty great! It’s got mystery and sex, what more do you need? The cast is great with Emily Blunttaking the lead (can she do that for every movie?) in director Tate Taylor’s (The Help) adaptation of the bestselling Paula Hawkins novel from a script by Erin Cressida Wilson (Secretary).
Blunt plays a lonely, alcoholic divorcee who uses her daily commute to fantasize about the seemingly perfect life of the couple—whom she dubs “Jason and Jess” (Luke Evans and Hayley Bennett)—she glimpses every day when the train stops at the signal. One day, however, she sees something shocking during the train’s routine stop, and subsequently becomes entangled in a web of intrigue involving a missing woman.
If it looks like Gone Girl, it’s because the novel also drew comparisons to that book (and fantastic movie). Still, I’m all over this one.
The Girl on the Train opens in theaters on October 7th.
