20th Century Fox gave us all a little gift this week. The studio released the first trailer for the star-studded murder mystery film, Murder on the Orient Express.
The Agatha Christie adaptation was directed by Kenneth Branagh and was scripted by American Gods co-creator Michael Green. In addition to the wonderful directing and writing talent, the film is also packed with some A-list talent.
Michelle Pfeiffer, Johnny Depp, Daisy Ridley, Leslie Odom Jr., Judi Dench, Penelope Cruz and Josh Gad.
Sometimes, when a film features this many stars, it ends up being a huge disappointment. It’s kinda like building a super team in basketball. You can have all the talent money can buy, but they still have to perform well as a team.
Thankfully, it looks like the stars listed above did perform well as a team. The trailer has got me interested, which is a bit surprising because I wasn’t looking forward to watching this movie before.
You can check out the plot summary and the official trailer below. It’s scheduled to hit theaters November 10, 2017.
“Agatha Christie’s novel, published in 1934, is considered one of the most ingenious stories ever devised. The novel revolves around a murder on board the famous train. Belgian detective Hercule Poirot must solve the case, but there are a number of passengers who could potentially be the murderer. In addition to directing the film, Branagh, a five-time Academy Award®-nominee, will star as detective Hercule Poirot.”
