Based on the best-selling novel from last year that I've read about a third of and need to get around to finishing

This looks amazing! I love Emily Blunt and it looks very 'Gone Girl'/'Dark Places'. I will try to give the book a go before the movie comes out too.

The one book that I really hope gets a film adaptation though is 'The Kind Worth Killing'.

The book is incredible and I'm very excited to see how they portray it in the film. I haven't read many books over the past few years so it'll be exciting to experience that feeling again!

Emily is amazing but I just can't see her as Rachel at all.

She should have won one for The Devil Wears Prada tbh.

Agreed, still can't believe Emily Blunt didn't even receive a nomination for Devil Wears Prada sad.gif

I enjoyed the book but it was quite... trashy isn't quite the right word, but unsubtle. It definitely doesn't seem like Oscar material, just the makings of a solid thriller. Much as I agree Emily Blunt should have at least one Oscar nomination by now!

The book was excellent and Emily Blunt seems a great fit for Rachel. I'm looking forward to see how they transition it to the big screen, though I do hope it doesn't turn out like Before I Go to Sleep, where it worked brilliantly as a book, but not so much on screen (and performances -_)

Merge if there is.

I did a google search for it and everything. How odd.

Anyway I saw this last night. It was great, entertaining, quite tense but a little predictable. The performances are all outstanding - Emily Blunt and Haley Bennett especially, with Rebecca Ferguson being pretty good too.

I can't remember the last time I saw a trailer so much for a movie, I might even have the dialogue memorised at this point. I am looking forward to it though, exactly my kind of film.

I hope I love this but I feel it looks a bit... sterile? Just a little formulaic and lacking any particular visual style. If Fincher had made this movie it would be almost certainly be exactly my type of thing.

Still hoping to be proved wrong.

It's good. Slow and slightly predictable and generic, but it was good. Not great though. Fantastic performances, but there wasn't anything particularly unique about it and it felt a little too slow at times. Worth a watch though, definitely.

Watched it last night having had no idea about the book or anything and it pleasantly surprised me. Don't think it lived up to my expectations from the trailer but there were some brilliant moments and I was second guessing myself throughout so it kept me on my toes!

LOVED the book so I'm hoping this comes close to matching it in terms of quality!
