Exclusive Interview: Haley Bennett Talks The Girl On The Train

No, you don’t have to do a double-take. You did just see Haley Bennett in The Magnificent Seven, and now she’s back only a few short weeks later with another blockbuster affair, Tate Taylor’s The Girl On The Train. The Paula Hawkins adaptation also stars Emily Blunt, Rebecca Ferguson, Justin Theroux and Luke Evans, but Bennett gets to star as arguably the most important cog in Hawkins’ twisty, mysterious machine. For those of you who read the book during its best-seller run, Bennett plays the part of Megan Hipwell. You know how things go.

For those who don’t, understand that Tate Taylor’s suburban nightmare is never what it seems. The film itself has screened to some pretty rocky reviews so far, so it looks like I’m in the minority of critics who believe The Girl On The Train is a homegrown story of passion

First Shallows Clip Shows a Vicious Shark Attack

First Shallows Clip Shows a Vicious Shark Attack
The decision to catch just one last wave almost costs Nancy (Blake Lively) her life in the first of two clips from Sony's new thriller The Shallows, hitting theaters June 29. This clip shows Nancy interacting with two fellow surfers who plan on calling it a day, when Nancy reveals she wants to stay out for just one more run. Little does she know that a deadly shark is lurking in these seemingly-peaceful waters.

The second clip , which surfaced on YouTube, features Nancy showing off her surfing skills for these strangers, before this killer shark is seen stalking its prey. With just a few weeks left until The Shallows hits theaters on June 29, it isn't known if another trailer will be released from this upcoming thriller. Blake Lively leads a minimalist cast that also includes Oscar Jaenada, Sedona Legge and Brett Cullen.

This taut thrill-ride centers on Nancy (Blake Lively), who is surfing on a secluded beach, when she finds herself on the feeding ground of a great white shark. Though she is stranded only 200 yards from shore, survival proves to be the ultimate test of wills, requiring all of Nancy's ingenuity, resourcefulness, and fortitude. We learned in an earlier trailer that Nancy has come to this beach after her mother passed away, but there isn't much else we know about the story. This project was formerly known as In the Deep, which previously had Louis Leterrier set to direct.

Sony Pictures has set a June 29 release date, which falls on the Wednesday before The Bfg, The Purge: Election Year and The Legend of Tarzan are set to hit theaters. Jaume Collet-Serra directs The Shallows. The filmmaker was first introduced to audiences with his 2005 remake House of Wax, but he has become better known for his collaborations with action icon Liam Neeson. They first worked together on 2011's Unknown, before reuniting on Non-Stop and last year's Run All Night. They will next team-up for The Commuter, which arrives in 2017.

Anthony Jaswinski wrote The Shallows, a script that wound up on the coveted Black List. He also wrote the 2010 thriller Vanishing on 7th Street, Kristy and his directorial debut Killing Time. Weimaraner Republic Pictures partners Lynn Harris and Matti Leshem are producing. Take a look at these new clips from The Shallows, and stay tuned for more as we get closer to the June 29 release date.

Shallows Trailer #3 Will Keep You Out of the Water This Summer

Shallows Trailer #3 Will Keep You Out of the Water This Summer
Earlier this year, Ryan Reynolds proved that R-rated superhero movies can hit it big at the box office, with his smash hit Deadpool shattering records left and right. Later this month, the actor's wife Blake Lively is hoping for a hit of her own with the upcoming shark thriller The Shallows, which hits theaters on June 29. Today we have a final trailer, which takes a unique approach to the journey Blake Lively's character Nancy must endure.

Sony Pictures debuted this new trailer on YouTube, which features plenty of footage but no dialogue from Blake Lively. Instead, the footage is matched with audio from a 1951 educational video entitled Developing Self-Reliance, with the narrator talking about how developing skills for self-reliance takes hard work. The footage shows Nancy surfing by herself, when a massive shark knocks her off her board, forcing her to take refuge on a rock, while this deadly predator circles around her.

The Shallows Trailer #2 Sends a Killer Shark After Blake Lively
In the 41 years since Jaws hit theaters, there have been countless thrillers where people must square off against a killer shark. The great white vs. man genre gets a new entry this summer with Sony Pictures' The Shallows, which puts a new twist on the shark movie. We got our first look at this beachside drama back in March. Today, we have an all-new trailer that gives us a pretty great look at the star of the movie, and we're not talking about Blake Lively.

The Sony Pictures YouTube page delivered this latest sneak peek, which will have you thinking twice before surfing in a remote locale. This taut thrill-ride centers on Nancy (Blake Lively), who is surfing on a secluded beach, when she finds herself on the feeding ground of a great white shark. Though she is stranded only 200 yards from shore, survival proves to be the ultimate test of wills,

James Ransone Joins Ethan Hawke And Karen Gillan In A Valley Of Violence

Blumhouse Productions is best known for its contributions to the horror genre, with such frightfests as Sinister, Insidious and The Purge in its body of work. But if you take one look at its upcoming slate, you’ll begin to understand that Blumhouse is looking to broaden its horizons in a big way. One of the most curious projects in the works over at the studio is a revenge Western called In A Valley of Violence. Though Ti West (The House of the Devil) scribed and also directed, the film still seems more than a little out of the way for the horror-leaning studio. That doesn’t mean, however, that we’re not looking forward to it, particularly with the cast West has lined up. Today, James Ransone joined the film, which already boasts Ethan Hawke, John Travolta, Karen Gillan and Taissa Farmiga.

Recently, a trailer has been released for this horror title. The clip shows Justine (Haley Bennett) alone on a college campus; but, a few sychophants have remained behind. The trailer is a compelling one, which shows one woman fighting against the many. For more on the story, Justine is confronted by a group of violent outcasts. Several students, on an lonely college campus, must band together and fight against this brutal gang. But, who are these sadists? And, what do they want? Justine will have to search for answers to these questions or become just another victim.
