it's wildly popular. that doesn't always mean tha the book transs with el to the big screen. why do you think this one does? >> well, i think it does only because it was very faithfully adapted. the direction is fantastic and we were really mobbed up with a lot of very, very good actors. so you know, we can only hope we do service to the book and sort of honor what the author had in mind. >> without, i know there is a lot we want to be careful about in terms of not spoiling something. give the basics of the story line in your opinion. >> essentially, the story about a woman named rachel who rides the train. she's in a slightly depressive state, drinking too much and she projects on to other people that she looks out the train window, what we all kind of do in life. she builds this sort of fantasy life around this couple and then

this is an nbc news special report. here's matt lauer. >> and good morning, everyone. i am matt lauer with this nbc news special report. i want to show you a chaotic scene that's unfolding right now in hoboken, new jersey, just about two miles from where we are. a packed commuter train has crashed, as you can see, into a rail station there. you're looking at live pictures from the scene. no specific word on injuries. however, we have heard there are multiple injuries at the scene. part of the building, as you can see, has collapsed. there's severe damage. federal investigators are being
8:46 am
i've got rahama ellis joining us from the scene. what are you seeing? >> what i can tell you is there are emergency vehicles all throughout this area. many of the streets have been blocked. so i've literally been running through the streets, trying to get up to the scene. as you pointed out, what happened this morning shortly around the 9:00 hour, just beyond the height of the rush hour, a train coming into the station. witnesses say the train simply did not stop. it kept going and ran into the area, where the passengers would be standing, waiting to get on this train. as you point out, it caused mass chaos. there are reports of mass casualties, but we don't know the extent of the injuries at this moment. this has been called a massive casualty incident. there are emergency crews all throughout the area. roads have been blocked. i am right now trying to get exactly on to the site so i can
8:47 am
once again, shortly after the 9:00 hour, just beyond the height of the rush hour, a train coming into the train station simply did not stop. it kept going. we don't know at this point what the speeds of train was. all of those details will come out as this incident is unfolding. emergency crews are on scene trying to get passengers who i have maybe injured, get them help, and to assess exactly what happened here and the extent of the injuries and the damage. >> and i just want to say, i'm many tracks come to an end. so it is truly a terminal. when you say that train didn't come to a stop, it would have had nowhere else to go but off the end of the track and right into that terminal building. >> matt, that seems to be exactly, precisely the case here. i'm not exactly on the scene, so i'm making my way to it, but what i can see is chaotic. people have been forced to not
8:48 am
i was forced to park my car and run as fast as i can into the area. but you're right. it's an area where the trains, they converge here coming into the train station. it's a new jersey transit commuter train. it's above ground. the train just didn't stop and plowed right into that passenger terminal. >> and obviously traveling at a pretty high rate of speed based on the damage we're seeing. i want to bring in tom costello. he cs tom, i guess the first thing that happens is the fra and the ntsb, they send teams there quickly. >> yeah, that's correct. obviously the immediate concern is evacuating all of the injured, treating the injured, and then trying to determine what happened. this will become a federal railroad investigation, as you suggested, and the ntsb, in coordination with the federal railroad administration. one big concern here, matt, is going to be did the train and did the system have positive
8:49 am
our initial suggestion from a federal authority is there is no positive train control on this particular track. you may recall from the philadelphia train crash you and i covered 18 months ago, that particular incident occurred when there was no positive train control on a stretch of track, and the train derailed going at an excessive speed around a curve. positive train control is essentially an automatic braking system. it brakes the train if the engineer fails to do so as the train approaches some sort of an immediate stop zone or slow down zone. in philadelphia, we had 200-plus injured and eight dead. we are hoping that we don't have anywhere near that kind of scenario here, but the immediate concern that federal railroad authorities have had for years is the slow rollout of this positive train control automatic braking system, why have various jurisdictions and authorities been slow to put it into effect
8:50 am
lives, and at this early indication from federal authorities, there's no positive train control on this stretch of track. >> and we don't know how many injuries have resulted from this crash, but keep in mind there would be people on that train and there would have been people standing near that platform. this could be mechanical error, it could be human error, it could be something else. too early to rule out anything, including a potential deliberate act. again, the investigation will come after the rescue operations take place to find out who may
8:52 am
the people do this, they don't burn the garlic. >> that's right. you want to add garlic here. olive oil. you don't to have this. you don't want to brown the garlic. that will make it really bitter. once you get this going, you add
8:53 am
in aromatics like green onion, this is where the flavor comes from. also, this is how you get your house smelling really good, man that is going down in the kitchen today. >> that's right. >> people will say, man, are you killing it in there. >> we have a tasting table downstairs t. tasters are getting ready. >> then we are going to add in some cooked brown rice. >> d there something to substitute? >> you can use rice or kinwa. check it out. add a little of this. thank you for helping me out. >> that will absorb the flavors already in the pan? >> now we will add in the hero of the dish this five spice blend. >> al mentioned. how would you describe the taste of this?
8:54 am
cinnamon clove fennell and black pepper. give that a quick stir there. then we will add in low sodium tamari. >> tamarzy what? >> it's almost like a sy sauce, it's less suesy, if you have an allergy, this the perfect for you. >> how long will this cook? >> it will took for about a good three minutes. once you do that, we will add in our chicken. once you get the chicken this is where all the magic happens, if you find that your skillet is drying out this dish, decrease the heat a little bit. this should cook for about five-to-seven minutes. can't you smell it right now? >> yes, we will turn this down a bit. we put the broccoli in. how we doing downstairs? >> we were discussing this. >> very aromatic.
8:55 am
this is a better boring dish. >> from start to finish how long will it take at home? >> 30 minutes, you have this delicious meal. will you garnish with a little sesame seed and some green onions. >> perfect. >> how is it? >> it is delicious. it is really good. >> chicken and broccoli. it's about $3 bucks a meal and comes with less than 300 calories, 30 grams of pr take this for lunch. saim save some money for the fall. >> everyone get the recipe on
