Fangirl Friday: Movie/book Trailers + Prince + $20 Bill

Wow another week has gone by? Where is the time going? Who knows at this point because I have 3 more weeks left as a senior in High School! Woot Woot!

Now onto more important things but to discuss about the things that happened this week!

The Girl on the Train Official Movie Trailer

WOW and I do mean WOW. I love thriller movies just as long as I watch them with someone because I get scared too easily. Now, I don't know about you but this looks REALLY interesting and I'm glad the trailer gave enough to tease us with what the movie is about and not give any of the story away. If you don't understand what this movie is about, read the summary from IMDB. It's a great description of the movie in my opinion!

Title: The Girl on the Train
Release Date: October 7, 2016
Genre: Mystery and Thriller
Starring: Emily Blunt, Haley Bennett, Luke Evans
Plot Summary: "The Girl on the Train is the story of Rachel Watson's life post-divorce. Every day, she takes the train in to work in New York, and every day the train passes by her old house. The house she lived in with her husband, who still lives there, with his new wife and child. As she attempts to not focus on her pain, she starts watching a couple a few houses down -- Megan and Scott Hipwell. She creates a wonderful dream life for them in her head, about how they are a perfect happy family. And then one day, as the train passes, she sees something shocking, filling her with rage. The next day, she wakes up with a horrible hangover, various wounds and bruises, and no memory of the night before. She has only a feeling: something bad happened. Then come the TV reports: Megan Hipwell is missing. Rachel becomes invested in the case and trying to find out what happened to Megan, where she is, and what exactly she herself was up to that same night Megan went missing." (Credited to IMDB)

Guys watch this awesome book trailer from Rick Riordan's new book!

This is honestly one of the funniest and best book trailer I have seen! It was both epic and very exciting! Then I just laughed towards the end because who wouldn't laugh at this? I laugh at almost everything and this just KILLED ME. In a way of course! Can't wait for the release of this new gem!

Title: The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo #1)
Author: Rick Riordan
Release Date: May 3, 2016
Plot Summary: How do you punish an immortal?

By making him human.

After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus's favour.

But Apollo has many enemies - gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go . . . an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.

Congrats to Harriet Tubman for being the new face on the new $20 bill! I'm glad she was chosen and I think it was a great choice! I can't wait to see it in person because this is such a big deal right now considering that she is the first African American woman on a bill! Well of course there was Martha Washington but that was long ago. I'm glad things are slowly changing for the better. I'm just excited to know who will be on the 5 and 10 dollar bill!

To end this long post, I just want to say that I'm sad to see so many great people dying this year and most of all, everyone is heartbroken from the news that Prince died on April 21 at age 57. It's such a sad time for all of his fans. I personally did not grew up listening to Prince since I grew up listening to Hispanic music most of the time that I didn't get to enjoy his music for most of my life. As I hear his songs now, I really wish I did grew up listening to them.  So sad to see him go but he will not be forgotten.
