"When you have money, no one is ever really your friend." 20th Century Studios has released another new 60-second official trailer for Agatha Christie's Death on the Nile movie. This is the Murder on the Orient Express sequel bringing back detective Hercule Poirot to solve yet another peculiar murder mystery. The latest trailer dropped a few months ago ahead of its February release this year. 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: Tom Bateman, Annette Bening, Russell Brand, Ali Fazal, Dawn French, Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Emma Mackey, Sophie Okonedo, Jennifer Saunders, Rose Leslie, Letitia Wright. As much as we all enjoy more mysteries, this one looks quite forgettable. It looks great, but the rest of the movie doesn't seem exciting. Or does it…?
Here's the third official trailer (+ poster) for Kenneth Branagh's Death on the Nile, direct from YouTube:

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. This was supposed to open in late 2020, but was delayed due to the pandemic shutdowns. 20th Century will now release Branagh's Death on the Nile in theaters everywhere starting February 11th, 2022.
