The Girl On The Train

The Girl On The Train

Yes, The Girl on the Train is a movie that we are already very excited about here at FemaleFirst and marks the return of Emily Blunt to the big screen. We are big fans of the actress and this looks set to be another great performance from the British star.

The Girl on the Train is an adaptation of the 2015 novel of the same name by Paula Hawkins, this was her debut novel a year ago.

The book has been adapted for the big screen by Erin Cressida Wilson, who has penned scripts for Secretary and Men Women & Children, and the movie marks the return of Tate Taylor to the director's chair.

The Girl on the Train is the fourth film of Taylor's filmmaking career and comes after success with Pretty Ugly People, The Help and Get On Up in recent years.

The movie sees Emily Blunt take on the central role of Rachel Watson and is joined on the cast list by Haley Bennett, Justin Theroux, Rebecca Ferguson, Luke Evans, Allison Janney, Edgar Ramírez, and Lisa Kudrow.

In the thriller, Rachel (Blunt), who is devastated by her recent divorce, spends her daily commute fantasising 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.

The Girl on the Train is a movie that mixes elements of mystery and thriller and is already drawing comparisons to Gone Girl, which won over critics and audiences two years ago.

The rights to this book were snapped up swiftly by Hollywood and is a movie that has been creating waves all year. The first trailer really is promising to be a tense and edge of your seat ride and I cannot wait to see Blunt in action.

This is a movie that looks on course to top the box office and don't be surprised if we see this film in the Oscar mix come the start of next year.

The Girl on the Train is released 7th October.
