MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS: Agatha Christie is considered one of the greatest mystery writers of all time and Detective Hercule Poirot is her most famous creation. Now the arrogant yet brilliant detective returns to the big screen with his most famous novel.
Poirot (Kenneth Branagh, who also directs the movie) is enjoying a holiday on the Orient Express when gangster Edward Ratchett (Johnny Deep) is found dead in his cabin. Everyone’s a suspect. Who did the dirty deed? Could it be the widow Caroline Hubbard (Michelle Pfeiffer)? Or Could it be Ratchett’s assistant (Josh Gad)? Or did the butler (Derek Jacobi) do it? Poirot is the only man who can solve this case.
The film was made into a successful movie with an all star cast from Albert Finney (as Poirot) to Ingrid Bergman (who won her second Oscar for this performance). Like the previous film, this one has an all-star cast including Daisy Ridley (Rey from Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Penelope Cruz and Dame Judi Dench. The story is famous for its plot twist ending.
