I loved this book so much and am thrilled that it’s been made into a movie! The Girl on the Train will be in theaters everywhere on Friday October 7. It looks fantastic. I have the scoop for you below plus a fun giveaway – perfect for girls’ night out!
The Girl on the Train
Not only is this a great whodunnit story with plenty of twists and turns, but the cast is great as well.
Emily Blunt, Rebecca Ferguson, Haley Bennett, Justin Theroux, Luke Evans, Allison Janney, Edgar Ramirez, Lisa Kudrow and Laura Prepon star in DreamWorks Pictures’ The Girl on the Train, from director Tate Taylor (The Help, Get on Up) and producer Marc Platt (Bridge of Spies, Into the Woods).
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.
Based on Paula Hawkins’ bestselling novel, The Girl on the Train is adapted for the screen by Erin Cressida Wilson. The film’s executive producers are Jared LeBoff and Celia Costas, and it will be released by Universal Pictures. This movie is rated R.
So definitely do not take your little kids! This is a date night or girls’ night out movie. Take a look at the trailer below to get a better feel for the film. I’m so excited to see it!
