When thriller films are done right, they are freaking magical. You leave the theater with your friends and you talk about the movie for hours.
“Did you see that coming? But what about that one scene, what do you think that was about?” And of course, you always have that one friend who claims to have seen every little twist coming. You want to slap him, but the greatness of the film has caused this peaceful feeling to enter your soul.
Anyway, you get the point. Thriller films can be awesome, and we’re hoping The Girl On The Train is one of the greats. Universal has released the first trailer for the film, which is based on Paula Hawkins’ best-selling novel of the same name. Emily Blunt stars in the movie as Rachel Watson, an unemployed alcoholic who must deal with the mysterious disappearance of her ex-husband’s nanny played by Haley Bennett.
The Tate Taylor-directed film also stars Justin Theroux, Luke Evans and Rebecca Ferguson. It’s scheduled to hit theaters October 7, so you still have time to read the book if you want to ruin the surprise.
Check out the official synopsis and trailer below…
“In the thriller, Rachel (Blunt), who is devastated by her recent divorce, spends her daily commute fantasizing about the seemingly perfect couple who live in a house that her train passes every day, until one morning she sees something shocking happen there and becomes entangled in the mystery that unfolds.”
