The Girl on the Train‘s teaser trailer was one of my favorite new trailers that screened during the 2016 CinemaCon. Following its debut at the convention of theater owners, Universal Pictures has now made the trailer available online along with the official teaser poster. Based on Paula Hawkins’ bestselling novel, The Girl on the Train stars Emily Blunt (Sicario, Edge of Tomorrow), Rebecca Ferguson, Haley Bennett, Justin Theroux, Luke Evans, Allison Janney, Edgar Ramirez, Lisa Kudrow, and Laura Prepon. Tate Taylor (The Help, Get On Up) directed and co-wrote the adaptation with Erin Cressida Wilson (Men, Women, and Children). Universal Pictures is aiming for an October 7, 2016 theatrical release.
Jared LeBoff and Celia Costas executive produced the much-anticipated film adaptation of Hawkins’ riveting novel.
The Plot: 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.
