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 below.
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 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 that “there are some surprises.”
“Murder on the Orient Express” opens November 8, 2017 in cinemas nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
