Trailer Thoughts: The Girl on the Train

The Girl on the TrainI’ll admit that I wasn’t particularly impressed with this novel – it felt too gimmicky and predictable to me – but I’m very curious as to how it comes across as a movie, and this trailer suggests that it might have a heavy dose of suspense, which would be very helpful. And a movie by definition will be less in the main character’s head than the book was, so that might make it easier to keep the audience guessing about what’s really going on. I knew going in that they’d moved the action to America, but that still seems to weird to me – the book is so very very British. It IS interesting (and probably good) that they let Emily Blunt keep her accent.

Thoughts? Anyone excited for this one?
