Following the all-star cast photo reveal of the highly-anticipated latest remake of the classic book by Agatha Christie, Murder on the Orient Express, 20th Century Fox further exposes the whodunit exploits of the uber-intelligent detective Hercule Poirot on its poster and trailer debut - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ibNEKpmrJY&feature=youtu.be
Directed by Kenneth Branagh who also stars as Poirot, Murder on the Orient Express features a powerhouse cast that includes Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penélope Cruz, Josh Gad, Daisy Ridley, and Olivia Colman who all play a crucial part in solving the elusive answers to a murder committed who are all considered as suspects while on board the Orient Express.
Branagh, in recent interviews said he made a conscious decision not to watch director Sidney Lumet’s (1974) version, and that he had advised the cast also to avoid watching it. “Our goal is to try and find a new approach. That’s why classic stories are worth retelling,” he said, adding “there are some surprises.”
Murder on the Orient Express opens Nov. 8 in cinemas nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
