Girl On The Train tops US box office

Emily Blunt

New thriller The Girl On The Train has topped the US box office this weekend, taking in £19.9m.

The movie adaptation of the best selling book by Paula Hawkins, stars Emily Blunt as an obsessed woman trying to solve the mystery of a missing person. The movie received lukewarm reviews upon its release but seems to have defied the critics to top the box office.
