Entertainment One UK have released the film's first look poster Universal Pictures

Entertainment One UK have released a second trailer and official poster for The Girl On The Train, the adaptation based on the international bestselling novel of the same name by Paula Hawkins.

Understandably – given the genre, the latest sneak peek doesn't offer up much in the way of new footage but does add mystery to what's in store for viewers who don't know the story.

Directed by Tate Taylor (The Help), the film features Emily Blunt as divorced drunk Rachel Watson, a woman who commutes to New York City every day, maintaining the illusion she has a job though she's been unemployed for a few months.

As she rides past the house she shared with her husband, she attempts to make sense of her life post divorce. During the journey, she becomes obsessed with a couple she sees every day – "the embodiment of true love". One fateful day, her voyeurism takes on a dark tone after a young woman (Haley Bennett) goes missing. Rachel then becomes convinced that she's witnessed her murder.

Becoming entangled in the ensuing investigation, as it inches dangerously closer to her, Rachel has to figure whether her regular blackouts mean she's involved in the murder or if it's just a figment of her imagination.

Not giving away too much, trailer #2 builds on the dramatic and slick tone established in the first; confirming why the movie is being dubbed 'the next Gone Girl'.

It certainly ups the sinister nature of the movie as characters wield golf clubs in the shadows or whisper lines such as "I read once, that when a train hits, it can rip the clothes right off of you."

Plus it showcases a stellar cast, lead by Blunt it also includes Luke Evans, Allison Janney, Justin Theroux and Rebecca Ferguson. Of the few minutes we've seen so far, viewers can expect sex, violence, heightened emotions and a very dark tale of adultery, alcoholism and abuse when the film releases in the UK and US on 7 October.
