When Kenneth Branagh directs a movie with a sizeable ensemble, the result is usually joyous. As such, I’m greatly looking forward to his adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Murder On The Orient Express, which I’m betting will be – ready? – a sleeper hit this winter. Chortle.
The film also sees Branagh in the role of Hercule Poirot, and he’s attracted a hell of a cast to the mystery. There’s Penelope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Dame Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Olaf, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr and Daisy Ridley in there, although you could have got all of that from reading the poster.
The first poster, then, looks like this.
Later today, we’re promised the first trailer for the movie too, and this post will be updated accordingly. More on Murder On The Orient Express as we hear it…
