Read the full synopsis

Full film details

On a train journey as famous as the detective, Hercule Poirot (Kenneth Branagh), 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 (Johnny Depp) 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.

Star Wars’ Daisy Ridley (The Force Awakens) plays Mary Debenham, and is joined with other on-screen murder suspects such as Penélope Cruz (Zoolander 2), Judi Dench (Skyfall), and Willem Dafoe (Finding Dory).
