[Trailer] Poirot Investigates A ‘Murder on the Orient Express’

Fox has issued a brand new trailer for Kenneth Branagh‘s adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express. Unlike the first one, which mostly seemed content to set the stage and show of the cast, this latest preview is more focused on selling the tone and action of the piece. As far as I’m concerned, like Hercule Poirot himself, it does its job well…

This continues to look like my kind of film. A good director, an impeccable cast, and a classic tale. I read the novel itself ages ago, but have never seen any of the previous three adaptations. This sadly includes the 1974 Sidney Lumet version, which I should really track down. In the meantime, my excitement for this latest stab at the material continues to grow.

Murder on the Orient Express is the latest adaptation of the classic mystery novel by Agatha Christie. It is directed by Kenneth Branagh, from a screenplay by Michael Green. The picture is produced by Ridley Scott, Mark Gordon, Simon Kinberg, Kenneth Branagh, Judy Hofflund, Aditya Sood, and Michael Schaeffer. The film stars Kenneth Branagh as ‘Hercule Poirot’, Penelope Cruz as ‘Pilar Estravados’, Willem Dafoe as ‘Gerhard Hardman’, Judi Dench as ‘Princess Natalia Dragomiroff’, Johnny Depp as ‘Edward Ratchett’, Michelle Pfeiffer as ‘Mrs. Caroline Hubbard’, Josh Gad as ‘Hector MacQueen’, Daisy Ridley as ‘Mary Debenham’, Tom Bateman as ‘M. Bouc’, Sergei Polunin as ‘Count Rudolph Adrenyi’, Lucy Boynton as ‘Countess Elena Adrenyi’, Olivia Colman as ‘Hildegarde Schmidt’, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as ‘Biniamino Marquez’, Marwan Kenzari as ‘Pierre Michel’, Leslie Odom Jr. as ‘Dr. Arbuthnot’, Miranda Raison as ‘Sonia Armstrong’, Rami Nasr as ‘McQueen’s Father’, and Derek Jacobi as ‘Edward Masterman’.

Murder on the Orient Express rolls into theaters on November 10th, 2017.
