Official Trailer for Branagh's 'Murder on the Orient Express' Remake
"Everyone is a suspect." 20th Century Fox has unveiled the first official trailer for the new remake (or re-adaptation) of Murder on the Orient Express, the murder mystery set on a luxurious European train. Adapted from Agatha Christie's novel, Kenneth Branagh directs this updated version, which boasts a very impressive cast: Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penélope Cruz, Daisy Ridley, Josh Gad, Willem Dafoe, Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench, Tom Bateman, Lucy Boynton, Olivia Colman, Miranda Raison, and Derek Jacobi. This actually looks a bit better than expected, even though the 1974 film is hard to live up to, they're doing their best to bring us something new. I'm intrigued and will hope for the best. Plus, I love trains, so they've got already got me there. The teaser poster is gorgeous as well. See below.
