emilyblunt_girltrainEmily Blunt in Tate Taylor’s The Girl on the Train

As expected, specialty arm Focus Features looks to boast most of the heavy hitters. But maybe the Emily Blunt-led thriller The Girl on the Train lands this season; below-the-line bids could be in the cards for films like Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.
