Murder on the Orient Express (2017)
Murder on the Orient Express is the 2017 feature film adaptation of the 1934 Agatha Christie novel of the same name. Kenneth Branagh directs and stars in the film as the legendary Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, who in 1934 must solve a murder that has occurred on an express train that is caught in the middle of the snowstorm. Ridley Scott serves as a producer on the film and the cast includes Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Judi Dench, Leslie Odom, Jr., Daisy Ridley, Penélope Cruz, and Willem Dafoe. The 2017 film marks the fifth adaptation of the Christie novel, which follows a 1974 feature film that was directed by Sidney Lumet and starred Albert Finney as Poirot, a 2001 modern television film adaptation, a Japanese television miniseries, as well as an episode from the ITV series that starred David Suchet as Poirot. Branagh would return to direct and star as Poirot in the 2022 feature film adaptation of Death on the Nile.
