Britain Sicario PremiereHave you read "The Girl on the Train"? It's a quick and worthy read, and not just "worthy" because Hollywood is adapting Paula Hawkins's best-seller with Emily Blunt, Justin Theroux, Luke Evans, and Rebecca Ferguson in lead roles.

It's not surprising to see such a top-tier cast want to sign on for this thriller, which follows a troubled divorcée Rachel (Emily Blunt) who develops an obsession with a young couple she sees every day from her commuter train window. When she happens to see something particularly striking (or thinks she does, anyway), she inserts herself into the strangers's lives and ... well, no spoilers, but things do not go as planned.

Entertainment Weekly has a whole "first look" issue out, including two debut photos from "The Girl on the Train." Both images show Rachel looking pretty lost and lonely:



Director Tate Taylor told EW of Rachel, "You can't avoid the puns with this movie — she's a train wreck."

She's a relatable train wreck, though, and mostly sympathetic. The movie changes the location from London to New York City, but Emily's Rachel is still British. Tate said that just adds another layer of loneliness into a story where Rachel tries to "reclaim or redefine herself."

The movie is scheduled for release on October 7, 2016.
