Before Gone Girl arrived not too long ago, it had been awhile since there was a juicy, quality thriller of that kind. Now The Help director Tate Taylor is adding another entry in the revitalized field of movies geared towards adults with The Girl on the Train, and it looks like the kind of movie that will keep you guessing right up to the very end.
Emily Blunt plays Rachel Watson, a recently divorced woman who attempts to help the police find a missing woman after witnessing certain activities that she believes may help find her. However, Rachel isn’t the most stable, emotionally or mentally, so when the missing woman ends up sharing a connection with her ex-husband, Rachel may also turn out to be a suspect.

What’s great about the Mission: Impossible series is that every installment has its own flavor. Each filmmaker, from Brian De Palma (Dressed to Kill) to J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) to Brad Bird (Tomorrowland), brought their distinct style to the franchise. This past summer, with Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, writer/director Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) left his identifiable mark on the series. McQuarrie is returning to direct the sixth installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise, but that doesn’t mean we should expect to see the same vision twice.

They say that movie concepts and characters are the real movie stars now, rather than the actors who bring them to life. One of the few remaining legit stars is Tom Cruise, even though Edge of Tomorrow and Jack Reacher proved that his name won’t still open a movie in the US in the way that movie stars once could. Cruise can help mint new potential stars, however, and the breakout talent that he lent the spotlight to in this summer’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation was Rebecca Ferguson.
Ferguson was quickly shortlisted for Gambit before she decided instead to work with another former Cruise associate, Emily Blunt, in thriller The Girl on the Train. But there’s a new Captain Marvel casting rumor that says Ferguson is Marvel’s top choice for the lady hero who will topline the 2018 release. Read More »
