lindelof part 3

The Leftovers is never afraid of showing a little soul-crushing drama. The HBO show is often bleak, but it is about loss and suffering, so why wouldn’t it be?

It’s a powerful moment, one showrunner Damon Lindelof is quite fond of.

Below, read Lindelof’s thoughts on the show’s unconventional style of storytelling, director Mimi Leder‘s work, binge-watching, and more. (Spoilers are discussed).

In any case, The Girl on the Train wins some instant affection simply by casting the great Emily Blunt as that titular woman on public transit. It’s simple movie math: Blunt makes any movie better, whether or not they’re based on acclaimed thrillers. The first two official stills from the film have arrived and they showcase Blunt in-character as Rachel Watson. You can check out the Girl on the Train first look below.
