The New Trailer for 'Girl on the Train' Looks Edge-of-Your-Seat Intense

Emily Blunt plays Rachel, a woman unsure of how she's involved in a grisly crime.

The Girl on the Train, the novel that book clubs everywhere dubbed "the new Gone Girl," is getting its own movie treatment, and the new trailer makes it look as thrilling as the book. Emily Blunt plays the main character, Rachel Watson, an alcoholic who spies on a perfect-looking couple (played by Luke Evans and Haley Bennett) from her train commute into the city. (In the book, the city is London, but the movie has moved it to New York.)

But things unravel when the perfect-seeming woman she spots goes missing, and she gets herself embroiled in the mess that ensues. The first teaser trailer, released in April, showed Blunt, along with costars like Justin Theroux and Allison Janney, making you wonder what really happened to Megan, the perfect-looking wife Rachel was obsessed with.

The new, official trailer features a glimpse of Laura Prepon as Cathy, Rachel's friend and landlord who has to deal with her drinking problem, Edgar Ramirez as Megan's therapist, and Darren Goldstein as a man Rachel meets on the blackout-drunk night that changes her life. And like the first trailer, it features a slowed-down, haunting version of Kanye West's song "Heartless." The movie comes out October 7, so you still have time to read the Paula Hawkins' novel—or skip it if you want to remain spoiler-free.
