It won't be long before we'll get to see Hercule Poirot crime-solving on the silver screen again—this time, he'll be played by British national treasure Sir Kenneth Branagh. Meanwhile, Johnny Depp plays the victim, a wealthy American named Mr Ratchett who dies from twelve stab wounds. Joining them in the murder mystery is a stellar line-up of stars, including Judi Dench, Daisy Ridley, Penelope Cruz, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, Willem Defoe and Josh Gad. Besides playing the titular role, Branagh directed the film as well.


If Murder on the Orient Express lives up to its trailer, we have to say it's looking rather gripping. The film is slated for a 9 November 2017 release.
