A lavish train ride unfolds into a stylish & suspenseful mystery. From the novel by Agatha Christie, Murder on the Orient Express tells of thirteen stranded strangers & one man's race to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again.
Hercule Poirot is a renowned detective, but the famed Orient Express throws up what is perhaps his toughest case yet....
On a train journey as famous as the detective, Hercule Poirot, is forced to launch an investigation onboard the Orient Express when a murder is discovered. With the train stuck due to a snow drift, Poirot is disturbed from his sleep by a cry coming from one of the other compartments. A wealthy American by the name of Ratchett has been murdered. Poirot faces the difficult challenge of discovering the culprit before it's too late, and must solve the mystery while all of his suspects are still aboard the train.
Based on the 1934 novel of the same name, Murder on the Orient Express is one of Agatha Christie's most treasured works, and comes to the big screen once again, after first being lifted from its pages back in 1974.
This brand new adaptation promises to be a blockbuster of a film, with an all-star cast, including the theatrical legend, Kenneth Branagh, set to direct and star as Hercule Poirot himself.
