Watch the First Trailer for Emily Blunt’s ‘The Girl on the Train’

UPDATED: The first trailer for “The Girl on the Train” starring Emily Blunt arrived online on Tuesday, but was taken down by Universal Pictures and released officially on Wednesday.

The trailer, which first debuted at CinemaCon earlier this month, shows Blunt’s Rachel as she becomes swept up in a mystery involving her ex-husband (Justin Theroux)’s missing nanny.

Rachel is lonely, alcoholic divorcée, whose train passed her old home — where her ex-husband and his new wife live — every day. She begins to spy on a couple a few houses down, played by Luke Evans and Haley Bennett. Once a mysterious disappearance occurs, Rachel gets more and more involved with their lives.

The trailer was backed by a soundtrack of Kanye West’s “Heartless.” Laura Prepon, Rebecca Ferguson, Edgar Ramirez, Allison Janney and Lisa Kudrow also star.

“The Girl on the Train,” adapted from Paula Hawkins’ best-seller and directed by Tate Taylor, hits theaters on Oct. 7.

    I see the point, and can agree somewhat with Leah’s comment. I do wish the character of Rachel is closer to the book’s description. But I think Blunt can carry it off with her eyes alone. The story is so complicated, I feel the film will be more about soul than images.

    I really liked the book, but Emily Blunt as Rachel is in my eyes such a bad fit. I love Emily Blunt, shes a great actress and I really liked her in the huntsman. But Rachel is supposed to be overweight, and much more of a mess than Emily appears to be in this trailer. So, I’m not sure I look forward to the movie, really.. Since I feel the role of Rachel had to be ‘spot on’, its a shame they made it too ‘hollywood’.
