Kenneth Branagh returns as Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot from MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS. The Agatha Christie character is at it again solving a murder mystery in DEATH ON THE NILE with a star-studded cast that includes Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Tom Bateman (CHILD'S PLAY), Rose Leslie ("Game of Thrones," "The Good Fight"), Letitia Wright (BLACK PANTHER), Annette Bening, Russell Brand and Sophie Okonedo. Watch the stylish new trailer for the October 23rd theatrical release.
The sexy and daring new murder thriller is filled with beautiful imagery and wardrobe. It has that throwback feel to classic murder mystery with a better backdrop this time. As the title suggest, DEATH ON THE NILE takes place on The River Nile in Egypt. MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS was limiting and claustrophobic but the wider space on DEATH ON THE NILE is more epic.
This time the new preview hints that jealousy may be the motivation for the murder. That definitely adds that novela quality to the drama.
October is also 2 months away so it'll be interesting to see if it stays on the date given the ongoing pandemic.
Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot’s Egyptian 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” reunites the filmmaking team behind 2017’s global hit “Murder on the Orient Express,” and stars five-time Academy Award® nominee Kenneth Branagh as the iconic detective Hercule Poirot. He is joined by an all-star cast of suspects, including: Tom Bateman, four-time Oscar® nominee Annette Bening, Russell Brand, Ali Fazal, Dawn French, Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Rose Leslie, Emma Mackey, Sophie Okonedo, Jennifer Saunders and Letitia Wright.
