Last year I read a book called The Girl on the Train and not long after finishing the book, I found out it was going to be made into a movie. Today, the first trailer for this movie was released, and I think it’s a really great one! One thing I think is a shame, is that apparently they’ve moved the setting from England to America – but other than that it still looks amazing. (The synopsis below is from the book, as we haven’t gotten an official one for the movie yet).
The Girl on the Train is 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. Rachel becomes invested in the case and 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. Cast: Emily Blunt, Haley Bennett, Luke Evans, Rebecca Ferguson, Laura Prepon, Edgar Ramírez, Allison Janney, Justin Theroux, Lisa Kudrow. Source: IMDb.
