murder in the orient express

Fox screened the first trailer and character introductions for Murder on The Orient Express in Cinemacon 2017. Sources review it as 'dark and menacing'.

The trailer for Fox’s remake of the 1974 mystery film is not yet available to the public. It opens with Ridley, Dench and Leslie Odom, Jr. sitting in the cafeteria wagon of the Orient Express. It’s lavish and beautiful and full of elegance, and the trailer soon skips to Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer making eyes at each other in the hallway of the train. However, the train soon comes to a screeching halt as it becomes evident there has been a murder on the train — and of course, everyone claims they are innocent.

'Murder on the Orient Express' CinemaCon Trailer Shows Star-Studded Cast

Kenneth Branagh’s star-studded adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express pulled into Las Vegas with the first footage at CinemaCon Thursday.

Branagh directs and stars in the Fox film, which also features Penelope Cruz, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Leslie Odom Jr., Daisy Ridley, Michael Pena and Judi Dench among the cast.

The story centers around a murder onboard the famous train and introduces Belgian detective Hercule Poirot (Branagh), who must solve the case while being surrounded by duplicitous passengers. 

Branagh, sending in a video from Malta where he’s filming the project, said “we’ve assembled an amazing group” of his cast. “This is not only a who dunnit and how dunnit, it’s crucially a why dunnit,” he said.

The stylish trailer shows a train traveling through a snowy landscape. In it is a varied cast of characters, all of whom could be the murderer.

“I see evil on this train,” says a voice. We get our first look at many of the stars in their characters, and the final frame is of Barangh’s Hercule Poirot, sporting blonde hair and a massive grey mustache.

The film is scheduled for release on November 22.

  • M. Bouc: trains are so romantic. All these strangers under one roof, eating and sleeping together for three days only to depart the train and go their separate ways, Never to see each other again. Yet all linked here for a time together. Don't you think that's romantic, Poirot?
  • Poirot, a loveable murder goblin: yes. Imagine if they were all linked here - by Death.
  • M. Bouc: hercule please
Barbara Gaines, Aari Ludvigsen and Jude Brennan went to Princeton to see Julie Halston rip it up in “Murder on the Orient Express.” The only, I mean the only, low point of the day, was being made to pose for this photo. As always, Aari and Jude nail it, and I look like I’m on the spectrum....


I love crime novels and I’ve made it my mission to get others hooked too, so here are some of my favourites! My favourite authors are bolded, and if they’ve written more crime stories than the ones listed here, I’ll put a + after their name. 

  • The Innocence of Father Brown by G. K. Chesterton+
  • Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie+ (Hercule Poirot)
  • Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie (Miss Marple)
  • The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie (Hercule Poirot)
  • The Broken Jug by Heinrich von Kleist (german)
  • A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle+
  • The Murders in the Rue Morgue by Edgar Allan Poe+
  • The Red House Mystery by A.A. Milne
  • The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco (italian)

It was really hard to choose these, but I hope this final list contains some good beginner’s recommendations for people who don’t quite know where to start. There are classics and modern novels, humorous and serious ones, novellas and series… Most of these have been translated into numerous languages (I’ve given you the original language in brackets!). 

!: None of these are thrillers or otherwise completely gruesome and hardcore stories, because I certainly wouldn’t want to read any of those (hence why there’s no Simon Beckett, Ferdinand von Schirach, Adler-Olsen etc.). All of the books listed here also have humorous aspects and hopefully won’t leave you sad and scared at the end! :)

Let me know what your favourite crime novels are, if you also like any of these listen here or if you think there’s something missing! I’d love to hear your recommendations! :) 

Side note 3/25/2017

It’s a little past midnight here so it’s still today. Today was okish. I slept in as usual then went thrift shopping and came home then went to north park to try the milk bar. I went with C. We first stopped in downtown but couldn’t find parking, so we just went to north park. C was hung up the whole trip because I made the comment that me and my mom think she’s still hung up over her little ex boyfriend even though they were never official. I really dislike C because if you suggest anything that’s contrary to her self perception she gets in this horrible bad mood. I felt sort of alone because it felt like I didn’t have anyone to connect with. North park is my favorite part of San Diego and I love it when I’m with someone enjoying it as much as me. We came home and I watched one of my favorite movies murder on the orient express. I chatted with SC today and that was super nice as always.

I’ve been thinking of the people I love lately. Like more so than usual. They all seem to be creeping back into conscious awareness. Like I’m thinking about JR a lot and even R. K too and MS. I’m thinking of them all in different ways. Just thinking of different food memories. I wonder why I’m doing that now.

I feel a little like crying right now. And cutting and I don’t know why. Last night SC and I had a conversation about mental health and how it’s weird for both of us right now and I guess it made me feel better to find someone who feels the same way. I feel definitely in a mixed state and I just want to be ok.

I have to write two papers one due Monday and one due sometime next week I hate school. I’ll do them last minute for sure.

I’m going to see panic at the disco on Sunday and I’m really happy because they’re one of my favourite bands. The only downside is spending time with ME. But it’s a concert so not a lot of talking.

I think M left me with two good things, I care even less than before what people think of me and I have a really good personal bible study routine. I care less because I realised in that friendship that those who love me will love me not matter what and it doesn’t matter what I do as long as I’m being a good person. She couldn’t love me no matter what I did and I know she didn’t care for me. And the personal bible study routine was because I needed god’s help to cope with her.

I feel my life will work out and be ok.

17, 18, 22, 38 💕💕💕💕😘😘xx

17-Favourite game as a child?: I used to loooove wink murder, hide and seek and blind mans bluff, idk why it was those three, I just loved playing them (still do tbh)
18-Comfort book?: So I had to have a think about this one, but I’d have to say the Hercule Poirot books by Agatha Christie, and if I had to pick a specific one I’d go Murder on the Orient Express. Even though I know who did it and how and why, for most of her books, I know I will always enjoy reading them, we always take a good pile of them on summer holidays and me and my mum will work our way through them. Murder on the Orient Express, because even though it is the cliche Poirot story and the most famous, that’s because it’s so gooooooooood
22-Describe your life in three words?: girls/girls/boys (or ‘I love you’ I couldn’t decide tbh)
38-Favourite time period?: probably the Edwardian era, which was only really 1900-1910 but like art nouveau. Just. Art nouveau. Also like the hair. And moustaches. It just seems kinda chill and pretty

💕💕💕💕😘😘 there you go ❤️

Daisy Ridley went through a whirlwind of emotions at the Lakers game, and luckily we have photos

Until we’re at a game, we forget how intense sports can be. But our favorite Jedi Daisy Ridley went to the Lakers vs. Clippers game, and her adorable whirlwind of emotions reminds us how intense these games can be.

We’re glad to see Daisy taking some time to do something fun, because that lady has been busy. Naturally, we can’t wait to see Daisy return as Rey for this December’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Daisy has also been filming the remake of Murder on the Orient Express, and we’ve all heard a bunch from that set, because Josh Gad used it as an opportunity to try to get Star Wars facts out of Daisy.

But on Tuesday night, Daisy Ridley and her friend went to the Lakers vs. Clippers game in Los Angeles.

And it looks like it was a really exciting game, because Daisy went through ALL of the emotions.

We saw excited Daisy.

Kevork S. Djansezian / Getty

And we saw sad Daisy.

Kevork S. Djansezian / Getty

We saw hopeful Daisy.

Kevork S. Djansezian / Getty

We saw totally-freaking-out Daisy.

Kevork S. Djansezian / Getty

Because her team was totally killing it.

Kevork S. Djansezian / Getty

And we even saw OMG-what-a-crazy-text Daisy.

Kevork S. Djansezian / Getty

Daisy and her friend clearly had a blast watching the game, which the Los Angeles Clippers won, BTW. We imagine Daisy was a little disappointed since she is wearing a Lakers necklace.

We’re glad that Daisy, much like the players, leaves it all on the court when it comes to a basketball game. Even though we didn’t watch a second of the actual basketball, we feel like we totally understand what happened throughout the game. Because Daisy’s face says it all.

Hello and thank you for messaging me, I’m happy you like my blog! :) ♥

Murder on the Orient Express is among Agatha Christie’s most popular novels and the villain reveal is one of the best plot twists in detective fiction (you could say in fiction in general).

This is a SPOILER and I don’t want to ruin the ending for those who haven’t read it, that’s why I’m putting it under the cut:
