Murder on the Orient Express

When I first saw the trailer for Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express I was so excited. And I still am.

Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the newest remake has an all-star cast with Branagh as Hercule Poirot, with Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, and Daisy Ridley in supporting roles.

For those that don’t know the storyline to Agatha Christie’s classic, according to Rohan Naahar with Hindustantimes:

"While being snowed in during an overnight storm, a man is (brutally) killed on board the luxurious Orient Express, and only one of the 13 passengers on the first class compartment could have done it. Fortunately, through sheer luck, ‘The Greatest Detective in the World’ also happens to be present, and is compelled – now we know why – to bring balance to this world."

Naahar gives the movie 4 out of 5 stars and a good detailed review. Read it here.
