The first trailer for Kenneth Branagh’s next outing as Inspector Hercule Poirot, Death on the Nile, has landed this week and we are very excited to follow the Belgian sleuth on his next case! A follow up to 2017’s Murder on the Orient Express, Branagh has also returned to direct the latest film which boasts the incredible cast of Armie Hammer, Gal Gadot, Anette Benning, Tom Bateman and Rose Leslie.
Agatha Christie first published Death on the Nile in 1937, three years after her Murder on the Orient Express was published. Death on the Nile places Poirot on a vacation in Egypt during the1930s, discovering a murder on the Nile River – the result of an entangled love triangle gone bad. The book was adapted in a film in 1978 with Peter Ustinov as Poirot along with Bette Davis, Mia Farrow, Maggie Smith, Angela Lansbury, George Kennedy, Jane Birkin, Jack Warden and David Niven. The film also won an Academy Award for best costume design.
Death on the Nile will be screening at Palace Cinemas soon!
