Everyone is a suspect in the first official trailer for the Kenneth Branagh directed Murder on the Orient Express, starring a bunch of people you definitely heard of.
Of course Kenneth Branagh directed a new adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express, he is very much the perfect man for this job. Now having him also play Hercule Poirot, well that’s an interesting choice. He’d probably not be my first pic, or 10th for that matter, at the same time it’s not like he’s a bad actor, he’s actually a fantastic one, it’s just that I didn’t picture him as the famous detective. Also this is only a very short teaser trailer for Murder on the Orient Express, mainly introducing the characters and setting up the murder mystery. I’m hoping the next trailer will give us a better understanding of the tone they’re going with here, since that’s another thing I’m a little worried about.
Kenneth Branagh directed Murder on the Orient Express while Michael Green (Logan, Blade Runner 2049, American Gods co-showrunner) penned the screenplay, based on the novel of the same name by Agatha Christie. Starring in the film are Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley, Josh Gad, Penelope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench and Kenneth Branagh.
Murder on the Orient Express opens November 3rd in the UK and November 10th in the US.
