There is a common thread that draws a missing person’s thriller together. Usually, it’s the general motifs like the cheating wife, the sex, the lies, the drama, the kinds of things you’d probably see in a low-budget Lifetime movie. But because David Fincher’s Gone Girl was such a success, it is easy to see why some studios may be showing a bit of interest in the material. Though The Girl On The Train bares a strong resemblance to Gone Girl, director Tate Taylor, using a script written by Erin Cressida Wilson, makes a valiant effort to separate his film from the rest for a relatively entertaining movie. Check out the full review below.
Universal Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures have released the first trailer for The Girl on the Train. Directed by Tate Taylor (The Help), the film adaptation is based on the bestselling novel by Paula Hawkins. Emily Blunt stars as an alcoholic divorcee who fantasizes about the young couple she sees every day on the daily commute aboard a train. But when she sees something she isn’t supposed to, she reports it to the police only to have her testimony come into question because of her alcoholism.
Back in November of 2014, we saw a preview for a crazy looking action movie titled Hardcore, which was to be shot entirely from the first person perspective and was seeking funding via Indiegogo.
The movie eventually passed its $250,000 goal, and has since been in the making. Now the first official trailer for the movie, which has since been re-titled Hardcore Henry, has been released online. It’s directed by Ilya Naishuller, and stars Sharlto Copley, Danila Kozlovsky, Haley Bennett, Andrey Dementyev, Dasha Charusha, and Sveta Ustinova.
