Whatever you want to say about Tom Cruise, the female leads in his last two films were impressive. Here’s Emily Blunt in action in Edge of Tomorrow.
Here’s Rebecca Ferguson from Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation.
I was initially disappointed that the two weren’t teaming up together for a summer action movie called Misandry, but then I watched the Girl on the Train trailer.
Very Gone Girl. Count me in, in spite of Luke Evans’ supporting role.
Directed by Tate Taylor (The Help), Girl on the Train is based on the Paula Hawkins novel, and it’s about a woman (Blunt) who is devastated by her recent divorce and spends her daily commute fantasizing about the seemingly perfect couple who live in a house that her train passes every day, until one morning she sees something shocking happen there and becomes entangled in the mystery that unfolds.
Fine, fine. Just promise me two things: 1) That Ferguson and Blunt will get a fight sequence together, and 2) that Emily Blunt didn’t end up killing the nanny in a jealous fit of rage.
