Today the first trailer for the dark thriller ‘The Girl on the Train’ was released. The movie stars Emily Blunt and is based on Paula Hawkins’ 2015 novel of the same name. Email Blunt, plays Rachel Watson, an alcoholic whose life begins to unravel when her ex-husband’s nanny, Megan Hipwell (played by Haley Bennett), disappears.
The Official IMDb Summary is as follows:
“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.”
Also back in January Emily Blunt talked to Deadline about the film. “I think it’s very relatable. We’ve all ridden the train to work and wondered about the lives of the people on the train, and I think that people relate to that, I love that your heroine, your lead character is the most unreliable witness in the world because she’s a drunk. And yet she’s right, and nobody believes her. The idea of playing a part like that where you just feel like you’re drowning is exciting.”
‘The Girl on the Train’ will be in theaters on October 7th. For updates or other interesting news be sure to check out the rest of The Nerd Stash.
