'THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN'
 LUKE EVANS JOINS EMILY BLUNT
Now we know why our favourite Welshman in the world Luke Evans has opted out of US Army propaganda SAND CASTLE movie with Henry Cavill: he will take a role in THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN instead! He replaces Jared Leto joining Emily Blunt, Edgar Ramirez and Rebecca Ferguson in the film in which he will play the husband of Haley Bennett's character. In the adaptation of Paula Hawkins novel Emily Blunt plays a divorced woman fascinated by a couple she watches on her commute to work. But events take a sinister turn when the wife (Bennett) disappears and the Girl on the Train starts to suspect she may be witness to a murder.

DISNEY'S FIRST TRAILER FOR
ALICE THROUGH LOOKING GLASS
Disney has revealed the first trailer for their fairy tale movie ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS which is out next May! Alice (Mia Wasikowska) has spent the past few years following in her father's footsteps and sailing the high seas. Upon her return to London, she comes across a magical looking glass and returns to the fantastical realm of Underland and her friends the White Rabbit, Absolem, the Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), who is not himself. The Hatter has lost his Muchness, so Mirana (Anne Hathaway) sends Alice on a quest to borrow the Chronosphere, a metallic globe inside the chamber of the Grand Clock which powers all time. Returning to the past, she comes across friends - and enemies - at different points in their lives, and embarks on a perilous race to save the Hatter before time runs out.  Helena Bonham Carter, Stephen Fry, Alan Rickman and Michael Sheen also star.

  1. The Girl on the Train is sure to be a hit, as popular as the book was. Is this one shooting in England? The book is set in England, so I didn't know if the movie would be set there, as well. It really could have taken place in any major city, although the UK has a charm that will add to the film.

    2. Good to know. Can't wait to see it! Hopefully they'll fix the plot problems the movie had (mostly the ending, which many readers thought was lame).
