The Girl On The Train – Movie Trailer

Well it looks like discount Jennifer Lawrence has been taken and Liam Neeson is nowhere to be seen, so enter Emily Blunt! Directed by Tate Taylor (The Help), Girl on a Train is a mystery thriller based on a novel by the same name by Paula Hawkins

Emily Blunt has really started to set herself apart from the romantic comedies we are so used to seeing her in, which is perfect as she clearly has so much more to offer as a dramatic actress. I love a good edge of your seat thriller – Gone Girl had me in awe of its chilling mystery, and this looks to be no different.

Here’s the official synopsis:

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.

THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN derails into Australian theatres 6 October 2016.
