For years, Wales-born actor Luke Evans has been part of bigger action and fantasy blockbusters like Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit and Fast and Furious 6, as well as genre films like Dracula Untold and The Raven. In Tate Taylor’s adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ bestselling The Girl on the Train, Evans finally plays a more grounded role as a man dealing with domestic issues and a missing wife.
Evans plays Scott, who at first is merely one part of a seemingly loving couple that Emily Blunt’s Rachel sees as she passes their house on her train ride each day. When Scott’s wife Megan (Hayley Bennett) vanishes, Rachel gets closer to Scott and learns there’s more to Megan and Scott’s relationship than what she sees from the train.

John Cusack has made 17 films in four years. We've found the ones that have gone all-but straight to DVD and watched them...
John Cusack is a bit of a Hollywood oddity. There’s no pattern to the type of movie he will choose to do, so he’s always kept us on our toes. Sure, he’ll make a dumb action movie, but that will often afford him the chance to make a few smaller gambles later on. Up until the last few years he’s played the system very well, but recently his ethic appears to have, um, waned? A little?
Since the heady days of Say Anything and Sixteen Candles he’s come to represent a sort of slightly weird-looking, awkwardly charming, offbeat everyman that men aged 18-49 can look at and go 'me'” - which is fine. There’s a place for that, as »

We’re back with another look at the best and worst of Hollywood’s remakes. This article will be dissecting a failed attempt to recreate a Universal horror film starring Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi. This week, Cinelinx, looks at The Raven (2012).
In the 1930s, Universal Studios, which specialized in horror and monster movies, teamed up their two cinematic titans of terror Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi in a series of films. The Raven (1935) was their second pairing. While the project was inspired by the Edgar Allan Poe poem “The Raven”, the plot is actually original, designed for the two leading men. The combination of the stars of Frankenstein (Karloff) and Dracula (Lugosi) could elevate even a mediocre film into something memorable. Sadly, the 2012 remake is totally not memorable.
