“There’s Been A Murder!”, No folks this is not a post for the movie version of that classic Glaswegian Cop TV Show Taggart but another icon Hercule Pirot. Kenneth Branagh is bringing back classic Agatha Christie whodunnit murder mystery and now we have the new UK Trailer for Murder On The Orient Express. Everyone is an suspect, trust no one!
Who killed Johnny Depp?! This new trailer teases the man of many faces is the victim amongst the 13 strangers on the train. Brannagh who directs is capturing the classic tone we expect from an Agatha Christie novel or Television drama. Every potential suspect is teased with little clues that taunt that person might be the killer. When you’re on a train with such stature the surrounding becoming very claustrophobic. Surprise Surprise Mr. Depp is playing a strange obscure character, and the way he’s been fooling around in the real world he’s probably got many ‘enemies’. It’s also nice to see Daisy Ridley in a non-Star Wars role as we know all good things come to an end one day. Personally, I’m not a fan of Pirot or the legendary writer.But with so many versions of the movie already made for the small and big screen, it will be curious to see how Branagh can convince his version is worthy of your viewing. It does look a promising joyride!
What starts out as a lavish train ride through Europe quickly unfolds into one of the most stylish, suspenseful and thrilling mysteries ever told. From the novel by best-selling author Agatha Christie, “Murder on the Orient Express” tells the tale of thirteen strangers stranded on a train, where everyone’s a suspect. One man must race against time to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again.
Murder On The Orient Express will open for investigation when it arrives in UK and Irish Cinemas from November (?4th). An impressive cast which also includes Michelle Pfeiffer, Penelope Cruz, Josh Gad, Michael Peña, Judi Dench, Leslie Odom Jr., Derek Jacobi.
