A wonderful and outstanding evening at The world premiere of “The Girl On The Train” arrived in Leicester Square, in the British capital of London, with a top cast as Emily Blunt Luke Evans, Rebecca Ferguson, Haley Bennett, Paula Hawkins the author of the novel and also the director Tate Taylor.

I loved the way the Red Carpet was transformed into a railway station and the actor were taking pictures from the station platform, while the names of the celebrities were announced on the Arrivals & Departures monitors. It was such a great idea!

La ciudad de Londres, recibe una vez más una premier mundial, de la Película más esperada de la temporada “La Chica del tren” uno de los libros más vendidos en el Reino Unido y los Estados Unidos que hoy se presenta en la gran pantalla del cine.

Con un elenco de actores extraordinarios, como Emily Blunt y Luke Evans, llenaron de emoción y glamour la noche Londinense en pleno centro de la ciudad, Leicester Square fue transformado en una estación de tren, con una alfombra que aparentaba ser vías de tren donde muchos se motivaron a fotografiarse en las vías, los actores se tomaron fotos en la estación de tren y fueron anunciados con tableros informativos de llegada y partida de trenes  sin duda una gran premier para recordar.

The film rights were acquired by DreamWorks Pictures in 2014 for Marc Platt Productions. The adaptation, starring Emily Bluntand directed by Tate Taylor, is scheduled for release on 10 October 2016.

Joining the stunner at the event was Emily Blunt and  co-star Luke Evans who plays Scott Hipwell in the movie. He looked dashing in a sharp navy suit as he posed with his stunning right hand woman.

La actriz, Londinense Emily Blunt se veía maravillosa, con un tocado con terminaciones de hojas de oro, vestido de Alexander McQueen completamente bordado con flores y purpurina lucía, radiante ante un publico, que la esperaba con mucho cariño, saludo a todos con una gran ternura y poso para la prensa.

Acompañando a Emily Blunt llega nuestro galán el actor Gales Luke Evans, que ya hizo suspirar a muchos con sus encantos, elegantemente vestido, con un traje azul posó para la prensa internacional y saludó a todos sus fans, entre ellos, Yo por supuesto, que me llenó ,el corazón, de emoción, tenerlo mejilla a mejilla.

Emily Blunt looked worlds away from her character Rachel Watson as she wowed the crowds on the railway red carpet at the world premiere of The Girl On The Train in Leicester Square on Tuesday night

The red carpet was transformed into a train track but Emily looked more like she was on a catwalk in this flawless embellished gown, which is by Alexander McQueen. Hailing from the Resort 2017 collection, her heavily embellished dress features an intricate floral design with a couple of birds and horseshoe charms thrown in for good luck.

When put together by superstar stylist Jessica Paster with a headpiece by Jennifer Behr, jewellery by Ruth Tomlinson and heels by Christian Louboutin, it really is a blooming beautiful look.

Emily perfected her leading lady look as she glided into the premiere of the movie, which is based on the book of the same name by Paula Hawkins. The red carpet was styled to look like a railway, which made her further stand out in her dazzling gown adorned with heavy beading boasting intricate floral details.

The dress nipped in perfectly at her tiny waist while she posed from all angles to show off the entirety of her figure, which was no doubt shocking to many due to the fact she gave birth in July to her and husband John Krasinski’s second child.

Her blonde tresses were pulled up into a delicate chignon which sweeped across in an elegant side parting with loose tendrils framing her face, while the hair was punctuated with delicate golden adornments.

The London-born beauty’s complexion was totally flawless, with a smudged smokey eye framing fluttering eyelashes. She dabbed on nude lipstick to highlight her plump pout.

Emily Blunt lucía una figura monumental si recordamos que ha sido mamá, el pasado Julio de este año como podemos verla aquí desde todo los ángulos.

Haley Bennett, who plays Luke’s wife Megan in the movie, opted for a Tudor-inspired gown which showed off her eye-popping cleavage in a corseted top with a Bardot neckline and a floor-sweeping base.

Haley Bennett llegó a la alfombra roja, con un vestido dorado al estilo Tudor, y un escote, para dejar turnio a cualquiera, su belleza deslumbraba y maravillaba, a quién se encontrara en la premier, sin embargo, ella misma confesó en la entrevista que se encontraba muy nerviosa, pero  a la vez, muy emocionada, de poder estar en una premier mundial Europea.

In a show of support, Emily’s sister Felicity arrived on the arm of her husband Stanley Tucci. After Emily and Stanley met during The Devil Wears Prada filming, he and Felicity hit it off Emily’s wedding to John, held a George Clooney’s Lake Como home in 2010.

En la premier encontré, una grata sorpresa Stanley Tucci que trabajo con Emily en la película “El diablo se viste a la moda” en la cual, conoció a la hermana de Emily, Felicity y ahora están felizmente casados, es la segunda vez, que veo a Stanley y como todo un gran caballero saludo a cada uno del publico, siempre un gustazo poder ver a este gran actor.

Plot of the Book The Girl on the Train

descarga-1

The story is a first-person narrative told from the point of view of three women: Rachel, Anna and Megan. Rachel Watson is a 32-year-old alcoholic reeling from the dissolution of her marriage to Tom, who left her for another woman. Rachel’s drinking has caused her to lose her job; she frequently binges and has blackouts. Very frequently, while drunk, she harasses Tom by phone and sometimes even in person, though she has little or no memory of these acts once she sobers up. Tom is now married to, and has a daughter with, his former mistress Anna – a situation that fuels Rachel’s self-destructive tendencies, as it was her inability to conceive a child that began her spiral into alcoholism. Concealing her unemployment from her flatmate, Rachel follows her old routine of taking the train to London every day, with her train route taking her past her old house, which is now occupied by her husband, the woman he cheated on Rachel with, and their baby. She also begins compulsively watching an attractive couple who lives a few houses away from Tom, fantasizing about their perfect life together. Rachel has never met them and has no idea that their life is far from perfect, and that the woman, Megan Hipwell, helps Anna care for her child. Megan outwardly seems perfect to Rachel—beautiful, happy, and married to a handsome, devoted man. However, she has a troubled past that she conceals from everyone who knows her, and this gives her severe insomnia. She escapes from her troubles by taking a series of lovers, while she secretly finds her life to be boring and shallow. She has sought help coping with her problems by seeing a therapist, Dr. Kamal Abdic, whom she would like to seduce. Eventually, she reveals to him a dark secret she has never confided to anyone before.

Anna Watson is a young, beautiful woman who is very much in love with her husband, Tom Watson, Rachel’s ex-husband. Anna is deliriously happy as a stay-at-home mother to their young daughter, Evie. While at first, she enjoyed the idea of parading in front of Rachel her conquest of Tom, as a way to show that he picked her over Rachel, she eventually becomes furious at Rachel’s harassment of her and her family, and wants to move from Rachel’s former house, and report Rachel’s stalking to the police. She particularly dreads Rachel’s presence because one day, Rachel entered their home, picked up their baby, and walked outside with her. She sees Rachel as a threat to her family and home.

One day, Rachel is stunned to see Megan kissing a man other than her husband. The next day, after a night of heavy drinking, Rachel awakens to find herself bloody and injured, with no memories of the night before, but certain that she has done something she will regret. Soon, she learns that one of the top stories of the day is that Megan is missing. Rachel is questioned by the police after Anna reports having seen her staggering around drunk in the area the night of Megan’s disappearance. Rachel starts to become inappropriately interested in the missing persons case. She contacts the police to tell them she thinks Megan was having an affair because she was obsessively watching her every morning and evening from the train, and then contacts Megan’s husband, Scott. She lies and tells Scott that they were friends, and also tells him her thoughts about the affair. Rachel learns that the man she saw kissing Megan the day she disappeared was Dr. Abdic.

Rachel contacts Dr. Abdic, lying about her true identity and background, as part of a ruse to get close to him and learn more about him. She makes a therapy appointment with him, ostensibly to see if he can help her to recall the events that happened during her blackout the night of the disappearance. While Dr. Abdic suspects nothing, Rachel begins to gain insights into her life by speaking with him, inadvertently benefiting from her therapy. Her connections to Scott and Kamal, though built on lies, make her feel more important. She ends up not drinking for several days at a time, but always relapses. Meanwhile, she continues to call, visit, and harass her ex-husband and his new family. Then, Megan’s body is found and she is revealed to have been pregnant, and that the fetus was fathered by neither Scott nor Abdic. As Scott discovers Rachel’s lies and lashes out at her, her memories of the night of the incident become clearer. Rachel remembers seeing Megan get into Tom’s car. At the same time, Anna discovers that Tom and Megan were having an affair. These associations enable Rachel to trust her own memories more, and she realizes that many of the crazy things Tom told her she did while drunk, but that she doesn’t remember doing, were not actually done by her. He has been gaslighting her for years, which has affected her belief in herself and made her question her sanity. Armed with her sad realization, and that he must have been the one to kill Megan, Rachel warns Anna. When Anna confronts him, Tom confesses to murdering Megan after she threatened to ruin his life by revealing that he impregnated her. Anna is cowed in fear of her daughter’s safety; and, though Tom tries to beat and intimidate Rachel into keeping silent, she defies him and fights back. Knowing he is about to kill her, Rachel stabs Tom in the neck with a corkscrew. Anna helps Rachel make sure that he dies from the wound. When the police arrive, former adversaries Rachel and Anna coordinate their stories to support their actions having been in self-defence.

¿Por qué todo el mundo está leyendo La chica del tren?

La-chica-del-tren.jpg

La novela de Paula Hawkins es la reina de la lista de las más vendidas de The New York Times desde hace cinco meses. Descubre por qué este thriller podría ser el mayor best seller de la historia

Por su argumento, Rachel, treintañera, atraviesa una crisis personal. Su vida es una serie, de catastróficas desdichas. Está en paro y se ha tenido que mudar a las afueras de Londres con una amiga.  Bebe demasiado y ha “olvidado” decirle a su compañera de piso, que la han despedido. Para sustentar la mentira, coge el tren de las 8.04 todas las mañanas al centro. Desde su asiento, en una de las paradas, observa la casa de su ex, Tom y vislumbra su nueva vida: acaba de tener un hijo con su chica. De paso, como la perfecta obsesiva que es, se fija en una pareja que vive cerca de la estación. Comienza a fantasear con ellos y, un par de capítulos después, a indagar compulsivamente en su intimidad. Un día, la mujer, Megan desaparece. A partir de ahí, Rachel comienza por su cuenta una investigación para descubrir su paradero.

Porque sus ventas ya han superado las (hasta ahora imbatibles) cifras de salida de El Codigo Da Vinci, el santo grial de los best sellers. Tres millones de libros en menos de un mes. Todos los datos alrededor de La chica del trenhuelen a récord. Sus derechos de publicación se han vendido a 30 países. Lleva 18 semanas en el número uno de la célebre lista de best sellers de The New York Times y en las de Bookseller, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe y Amazon. Es el ejemplo perfecto de lo que los anglosajones llaman un libro pageturner, es decir, pasapáginas. Lo confirmamos: su nivel de adicción es muy alto.

Por su parecido con Perdida. La novela-fenómeno de Gillian Flynn, la más retorcida de 2014, esa que relataba la desaparición de la asombrosa Amy. El 50% de la pareja formada por una princesa del Upper East Side y un chico del medio oeste que tienen que dejar su cómoda vida en Brooklyn para vivir en un pueblecito de la América profunda. ¿En qué se parecen? Las dos son un thriller psicológico en el que uno de los personajes desaparece y las dos ahondan en los límites de la locura y en los claroscuros de las relaciones de pareja. Como enPerdida, Paula Hawkins da voz a varios narradores que cuentan su versión de la historia en un juego de espejos y, como en Perdida, podríamos estar ante el relato de un desequilibrio.

Porque Dreamworks ha decidido llevarla al cine. ¿Sus protagonistas?  Emily Blunt (El diablo se viste de Prada) estarán en un reparto dirigido por Tate Taylor (Criadas y señoras). También en esto sigue los pasos de la novela de Gillian Flynn, que fue adaptada por David Fincher en una inquietante versión con Rosamunde Pike y Ben Aflleck. “Me halaga que me comparen con “Perdida” porque es un gran libro, pero yo veo a “La chica del tren” más cerca de las atmósferas de las películas de Alfred Hitchcock. “Creo que en ambas novelas nos encontramos con mujeres llenas de puntos débiles que quizá no sean lo que aparentan”, dice la autora, Paula Hawkins, una periodista sudafricana afincada en Londres que solía escribir chick lit.

‘La chica del tren’: ¿Por qué la película no transcurre en Londres como en el libro?

bluntjpg

Si has leído el libro de Paula Hawkins La chica del tren y has visto el tráiler de su adaptación cinematográfica protagonizada por Emily Blunt, habrás notado un importante cambio con respecto a la novela. Mientras que la historia de Rachel Watson transcurre en Londres sobre el papel, en la gran pantalla lo hace en Nueva York. Por lo tanto, en la cinta dirigida por Tate Taylor, la protagonista coge todos los días el tren que la lleva de Westchester County a Manhattan rumbo a la estación Grand Central y no a London Euston.

Puede que a muchos de los fans de la novevla de Hawkins este cambio no les guste, pero sí hay una cosa que se mantiene británica: Blunt. El realizador pensó que sería un buen guiño al lugar en el que transcurre la historia original y algo que daría más potencia a lo aislada que Rachel se encuentra tan lejos de su hogar, familia y amigos. Por otro lado, y como ha confirmado la guionista Erin Cressida Wilson, mantener la historia en Londres nunca fue algo que tuvieron en mente desde el inicio de la adaptación. “Es una película americana y ya está”, afirma Wilson.

401396.jpg

La guionista también ha revelado que América choca más con el alcoholismo de Rachel. “Es una cultura más de beber”, afirm Wilson sobre Inglaterra. “No es tan vergonzoso como aquí. En América tienes que ir a un agujero negro donde nadie puede verte haciendo algo malo”, añade. Además, la escritora de la novela no ha visto ningún problema en este cambio de territorio. “Nuca pensé que la localización fuese lo más importante”, afirma en EW.

La chica del tren sigue a una mujer (Blunt) alcohólica, divorciada y en paro que fantasea con una pareja que viven en una de las casas de la urbanización en la que ella antes residía con su ex marido Tom (Justin Theroux). La parada que hace el tren delante de la casa de Jess (Haley Bennett) y Jason (Luke Evans) -así les ha llamado- es su momento preferido del viaje que hace todos los días para fingir que sigue trabajando. No obstante, la idílica vida de la pareja será destruida cuando sea testigo de una traición y Jess desaparezca. Rebecca Ferguson (Misión Imposible: Nación secreta), Lisa Kudrow (Friends), Allison Janney (Mom) y Laura Prepon (Orange is the New Black) cierran el reparto de la película cuyo estreno está previsto para el 21 de octubre. Sobre estas líneas, no te pierdas el tráiler.

Sin duda una libro para leer “durante tus viajes en tren” y una película para no perdérsela.

Without a doubt a book that will be a great company to read on “the train” or a great movie to watch this season.
