‘The Girl On The Train’ teaser trailer reveals the suspenseful thriller
“The Girl on the Train” was named the next “Gone Girl” by reviewers such as Harper’s Bazaar following its publication last year.
The book takes place in London, United Kingdom. However, according to IMDb, the movie will be taking place in New York.
It follows a 32-year-old alcoholic woman, Rachel Watson, played by Emily Blunt, who takes a train to London every day.
While on these rides, she passes the house that she and her ex-husband, Tom, played by Justin Theroux, bought and lived in during their marriage. He still lives there with his new wife, Anna, played by Rebecca Ferguson, and their newborn daughter.
In order to ignore the pain of watching Tom’s new life everyday, Rachel decides to focus her attention on a house a few doors down. While doing this, she eventually becomes obsessed with the life of a young couple she has never met before: Scott, played by Luke Evans, and Megan Hipwell, played by Haley Bennett.
One day, while on the train, Rachel sees Megan kissing another man, who she recognizes as the psychiatrist she has been seeing, Dr. Kamal Abdic, played by Édgar Ramírez.
After this incident, Megan goes missing, and Rachel takes it upon herself to become a self-proclaimed detective and tries to help the police because she has been watching the Hipwells for months.
This psychological thriller is written from the points of view of the three main females: Rachel, Anna and Megan. However, the trailer for the movie only shows Rachel’s point of view.
The rest of the cast includes Lisa Kudrow, Laura Prepon and Allison Janney.
The movie is scheduled to be released Oct. 7.
