The Girl on the Train premiered in London on September 20, 2016, before it was theatrically released in the United States on October 7, 2016. The film was a box office success, grossing $173 million worldwide. It received mixed reviews, but Blunt's performance received critical acclaim, as well as nominations for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role at the 23rd Screen Actors Guild Awards and the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role at the 70th British Academy Film Awards. A Hindi-language remake of the same name was released in 2021, with Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra in the starring role.
Principal photography on the film began on November 4, 2015, in New York City. In late November 2015, filming also took place in White Plains, as well as in Hastings-on-Hudson and Irvington, New York. Filming wrapped up on January 30, 2016.
The film was part of DreamWorks' distribution deal with Walt Disney Studios, which began in 2009. In November 2015, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures scheduled the film for an October 7, 2016, release through their Touchstone Pictures banner. However, DreamWorks and Disney did not renew their distribution deal, and in December 2015, Universal Pictures acquired the film's distribution rights, as part of their new distribution deal with DreamWorks' parent company, Amblin Partners.
Universal retained Disney's original release date. Universal also distributed overseas, except in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, where distribution was handled by Mister Smith Entertainment through other distributors. Entertainment One released the film in the United Kingdom on October 5, 2016.
Crime novelist Megan Abbott and Sarah Weinman of the newsletter Publisher's Lunch stopped by to discuss the phenomenon with NPR's Steve Inskeep. "I have talked to other crime writers that have been urged by various professional people in their life to put the word girl in their title," says Abbott. "It's not necessarily an issue with the content of the book itself, but there's this sort of shorthand that if it has 'girl' in the title, then I know what to expect."
Weinman: I was a voracious true crime reader, I followed trials, I read the newspapers. And I also wanted to circle back a bit because you opened the segment with Girl in the Dark by Marion Pauw, which I have happened to have read, and it's a really excellent novel. Marion Pauw is from the Netherlands, and that book, which was published there several years ago as Daglicht, was a huge best-seller and in a way calling it Girl in the Dark doesn't tell you what it's all about because it's partly about wrongful conviction, it's partly about juggling motherhood. So in a way, the girl insignia is trying to tie it into this larger marketing purpose, but sometimes it can be a disservice. Perhaps it's a notion that suspense by women is part of a broader field and of course it's been happening for decades ... this is not a new phenomenon.
Weinman: Just to chime in as well, both of those books, what they have in common, what I think a lot of these other books that have climbed upon the "girl train" so to speak is ... people are gravitating toward these unreliable narrators. I know that when I read Gone Girl it was 2012, we were only a few years removed from the economic crash of 2008, a lot of people felt their lives were completely upended, they didn't know who to trust, and so a book like Gone Girl, which gets at the heart of a marriage that seems to be stable but is anything but, I really think that did speak to people.

The case of a 15-year-old girl that sparked a firestorm on Facebook after she was pepper sprayed by Hagerstown police in the back of a cruiser last month has been adjudicated in the juvenile justice system, according to her attorney.
Ficker said the girl has written a letter apologizing for her actions on Sept. 18, when she was captured on cellphone- and body-camera footage struggling with officers and swearing at them after she rode her bike into a car in the area of Randolph Avenue and North Locust Street.
During the incident, a bystander questioning the way police are handling the situation is told by an officer that paramedics need to examine the girl because she is a minor and can't refuse treatment.
At least two officers are seen with what appears to be pepper spray, then one of them sprays the contents of a can through a crack in the window after the cruiser door is closed. The girl is then heard screaming that she can't breathe.
On 10 April 2016, a video purportedly showing a "snowboard girl" being chased by a bear was posted to YouTube by user Kelly Murphy, along with the claim that it was taken at Hakuba47 Winter Sports Park in the Negano prefecture of Japan:
When water is not piped to the home the burden of fetching it falls disproportionately on women and children, especially girls. A study of 24 sub-Saharan countries revealed that when the collection time is more than 30 minutes, an estimated 3.36 million children and 13.54 million adult females were responsible for water collection. In Malawi, the UN estimates that women who collected water spent 54 minutes on average, while men spent only 6 minutes. In Guinea and the United Republic of Tanzania average collection times for women were 20 minutes, double that of men.
For women, the opportunity costs of collecting water are high, with far reaching effects. It considerably shortens the time they have available to spend with their families, on child care, other household tasks, or even in leisure activities. For both boys and girls, water collection can take time away from their education and sometimes even prevent their attending school altogether.
The birth of Bliss was years before the creation of Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. She is about 8 years older than the girls, making her about 14. Bliss's creation happened when Professor Utonium got into a science-off with a rival scientist, Professor Newtronium, who had just created the Perfect Little Boy solely out of artificial ingredients and can fly so Utonium attempted to do the same thing, with the only difference being the gender and to fly further.
He added sugar, spice, and everything nice into his concoction, but accidentally added in Chemical W, giving his creation superpowers. Thus, "The Perfect Little Girl" was born, which he named "Blisstina Francesca Francia Mariam Alicia Utonium", or "Bliss" for short. Professor Utonium loved Bliss and raised her the same way he'd raised his three future girls, but it was only a matter of time before Bliss' powers started coming into play and proving their danger. Professor Utonium started to realize that whenever Bliss got excited, enraged, terrified, upset, or basically any feeling, her feelings would mix with her powers, and would cause destruction. Bliss would blast holes in the walls of the house and endanger the well-being of the Professor and everyone else around her.
This continued for some time, with the Professor and Bliss fearing the worst would come. Soon enough it came to pass when Bliss grew upset about being unable to eat cereal without milk. Growing increasingly upset, her powers merged with her emotions once more and an intense explosion destroyed the entire house. Shocked and ashamed at what she had done, Bliss fled to space, never to be seen by humanity forever, going to a deserted island where she'd spend her days trying to control her erratic powers. Professor Utonium thought she had died in the explosion. As devastated as he was at the loss, he eventually decided that he needed to move forward from the past, and try again with making another perfect little girl. When he did, he decided to shelter them from any information about their previous sister, and let them enjoy the fact that they were perfectly functional creations, just like he always wanted them to be.
When Bliss turned out to be true, she and Professor Utonium explained her backstory and her reasons for coming back. After getting their heads around this, The Powerpuff Girls were ecstatic to have an older sister and they introduced her to their lives. They tried teaching her about fighting crime, using superpowers, and having fun. However, Bliss had developed anxiety due to the erratic nature of her powers and how destructive they could be, and this anxiety came into play, causing her to once again cause destruction around her whenever she felt very nervous and upset. Bliss talked with MIH about her inability to overcome this issue with her powers, and MIH worked to try and convince her that The Professor and the girls hated her, saying that she should team up with him instead. Bliss was on the fence about this, torn between the love of her longtime friend, suspicion of the Professor's motivations and growing companionship between her sisters. However, it was soon revealed that "MIH" was really HIM. Hypnotizing Bliss, HIM fused with her and absorbed her powers, and then unleashed an attack on The City of Townsville. 041b061a72
