There’s Mystery Aplenty in the Murder on the Orient Express Trailer


Agatha Christie may very well be one of the greatest mystery novelists the world has ever known. There’s a reason that she is, by far, the best-selling novelist of all time (over 2 billion copies sold worldwide). Her ability to craft stories that keep the reader guessing until the very last page cannot be denied and it’s why people use her work as a foundation for their own stories left and right.

Coming this fall will be Murder on the Orient Express, a new version of the 1934 novel that saw her recurring character Hercule Poirot on a train where a murder occurs. The investigation is on and time is of the essence as the killer may very well vanish into thin air once the train pulls into the station.

A very famous version of the film directed by Sidney Lumet was released in 1974. It starred Albert Finney, Sean Connery, Lauren Bacall, Anthony Perkins, Vanessa Redgrave, and many more iconic stars.

Directed by Kenneth Branagh, who stars alongside Johnny Depp, Judi Dench, Penelope Cruz, Derek Jacobi, Michelle Pfeiffer, Willem Dafoe, Olivia Colman, Daisy Ridley, Josh Gad, Leslie Odom Jr., Lucy Boynton, Tom Bateman, Adam Garcia and Miranda Raison, Murder on the Orient Express comes out November 10th.

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.
