Several weeks back, we got a teaser for Kenneth Branagh’s upcoming adaptation of Murder on The Orient Express. And it was a bit silly, especially with that giant Imagine Dragons music cue at the end.
This new full-length trailer still has that music for some reason, but it’s less invasive and the trailer isn’t near as corny. Check it out:
What starts out as a lavish train ride through Europe quickly unfolds into one of the most stylish, suspenseful and thrilling mysteries ever told. From the novel by best-selling author Agatha Christie, “Murder on the Orient Express” tells the tale of thirteen strangers stranded on a train, where everyone’s a suspect. One man must race against time to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again. Kenneth Branagh directs and leads an all-star cast including Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley and Josh Gad.
I am extremely curious about this one. Seeing Johnny Depp is a little cringeworthy, but Michelle Pfeiffer is here, continuing her late-career renaissance. The cast is an interesting collection of actors and Josh Gad. Sidney Lumet’s version of the Christie novel was solid, this one certainly seems a bit more slick.
Murder on The Orient Express opens November 10.
