Death on the Nile Trailer

"The romance of the desert has the power to seduce…" 20th Century Studios has released the first official trailer for Agatha Christie's Death on the Nile, the Murder on the Orient Express sequel bringing back detective Hercule Poirot to solve yet another mystery. Murder was just the beginning. While on vacation in Egypt on a river boat on the Nile, Hercule Poirot must investigate the murder of a young heiress. Death on the Nile reunites the filmmaking team behind Orient Express, and stars Kenneth Branagh as the iconic Hercule Poirot; he also directed the film. Joined by an all-star cast of suspects, including: Tom Bateman, Annette Bening, Russell Brand, Ali Fazal, Dawn French, Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Rose Leslie, Emma Mackey, Sophie Okonedo, Jennifer Saunders, and Letitia Wright. This is currently scheduled to open in theaters in October. I love Depeche Mode, but in this trailer? Not so sure. Check it out.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Kenneth Branagh's Death on the Nile, from 20th's YouTube:

Death on the Nile Poster

Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot's Egypt vacation aboard a glamorous river steamer turns into a terrifying search for a murderer when a picture-perfect couple’s idyllic honeymoon is tragically cut short. Set against an epic landscape of sweeping desert vistas and the majestic Giza pyramids, this tale of unbridled passion and incapacitating jealousy features a cosmopolitan group of impeccably dressed travelers, and enough wicked twists and turns to leave audiences guessing until the final, shocking denouement. Death on the Nile is once again directed by British actor / filmmaker Kenneth Branagh, director of the movies Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Hamlet, Love's Labour's Lost, As You Like It, The Magic Flute, Sleuth, Thor, Macbeth, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, Cinderella, Murder on the Orient Express, and also Artemis Fowl previously. The screenplay is written by Michael Green, adapted directly from Agatha Christie's novel. 20th Century will release Branagh's Death on the Nile in theaters starting on October 23rd this fall.

I just recently saw "....Orient Express" and was pleasantly surprised. This looks even better. A great trailer!

Was in worth a watch? I find myself excited for films made by Kenneth but I always end up underwhelmed.

I caught it On Demand/Spectrum one night and wasn't expecting much, but it's entertaining for sure. I mean, it's no "Dead Again", but...

It's kind of mediocre imo. I'd recommend watching Sidney Lumet's 1974 film instead. It's far from perfect but it's a lot better than the Branagh adaption.

It's pretty with it's directorial flourishes, but it's soulless.

Don't care much for that song but I'm definitely going to see the movie.

It's like the first one but ON A BOAT! Cool!

"The Orient Express" was a terrible adaptation that was more concerned about the look, feel and style rather than the substance of Agatha Christie's story. It was a pretty movie to watch, but after awhile you become impatient and bored waiting for the conclusion. It's a wonder that it was successful enough to warrant this sequel, which looks to be more of the same. Heck, Agatha Christie isn't even mentioned on the poster! Just these famous actors and the name of the movie! I guess the source material isn't worth mentioning...
