Kenneth Branagh returns as Hercule Poirot in the first trailer for Agatha Christie’s classic murder mystery
Despite the coronavirus pandemic shutting down all of the films that were in production and has decimated the release calendar for the year, the remake of ‘Death On The Nile‘, the Agatha Christie classic has managed to not only get completed but has managed to score a release date of October 23rd. The follow-up to writer/director Kenneth Branagh take on ‘Murder On The Orient Express‘ from a few years ago which boasted the cast that included Michelle Pfeiffer, Judy Dench, Daisy Ridley, Penelope Cruz, and Johnny Depp was a modest success but enough of one that has allowed the new version of the novel, first filmed in 1978 to be made. Today sees the release of the first trailer for the new film:
Also, the first poster for the film has also been released. Despite not showing or giving away too much, the poster is an intriguing piece that sums up what we are likely to see on screen perfectly:
Branagh once again is on directorial duties alongside his role of Hercule Poirot and he has again assembled a sterling cast for his version of the novel. Now, I’m not going to spoil anything about the film and its twists and turns but as I’ve read the book and seen the first version of the film, I know who lives, who dies, and who the villain of the piece is. Despite this, I’m looking forward to seeing what the film can bring to the table, and with a stellar cast of this caliber, the film is bound to be an enjoyable and worthwhile watch for the audience.
Death On The Nile Opens on October 23rd.
