The new 20th Century Fox film is an adaptation of the classic Agatha Christie mystery Murder On The Orient Express, now directed by Kenneth Branagh. The Thor and Cinderella director assembled a massive cast to bring it to life for the big screen once again.

In these first images we see Branagh as Hercule Poirot, Johnny Depp as Edward Ratchett, Michelle Pfeiffer as Caroline Hubbard, Daisy Ridley as Mary Debenham, Hamilton star Leslie Odom Jr. as Doctor Arbuthnot, Manuel Garcia Rulfo as Biniamino Marquez, Judi Dench as Princess Dragomiroff, Olivia Colmon as Hildegarde Schmidt, Willem Dafoe as Mr. Hardman, Penelope Cruz as Pilar Estravados, Sergei Polunin as Count Andrenyi,  Michael Peņa as Marquez with Josh Gad as Hector MacQueen and Tony winner Derek Jacobi as Masterman (wouldn’t be a Branagh movie without some storied Shakespearean actors). It’s perhaps one of the most prestigious ensemble casts to be put together in some time. Leave it to Branagh to really bring the prestige.

Branagh, a five-time Oscar nominee, stars as Detective Hercule Poirot, and has decided to do away with the typical portly, black-mustachioed Poirot we have known since the novel was first published almost 80 years ago, and gone for an incredibly exaggerated darkly gray handlebar look.

A couple months ago, Josh Gad posted several videos of him trying to coerce any Star Wars’ spoilers he could out of Daisy Ridley. It’s now apparent that those were shot during the production of Murder On The Orient Express. Given the massive ensemble, it’s clear all involved are keeping it light and looking to be having a blast off screen, we can only hope as an audience that sort of fun translates on screen, too.

First published in 1934, written by Agatha Christie (still the highest selling author in history), Murder on the Orient Express follows the investigation of a fatal stabbing on board the titular train heading from Istanbul to Paris. The train ends up stuck in a snowdrift after the murder has taken place, leaving the killer trapped on the train. It’s up to investigator Hercule Poirot to interrogate everybody and figure out who committed the murder. Everyone is a suspect in the iconic whodunit.

Murder On The Orient Express

Adapted from Agatha Christie’s novel by Michael Green (Blade Runner 2049), Murder On The Orient Express will hit theaters On November 10, 2017. The film was one of GEEK’s Most Anticipated Film of 2017.
