New MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS Trailer is Here!

The second trailer for the upcoming 20th Century Fox film Murder on the Orient Express has been released and it packs a heavy punch of intrifue, danger, and star power.

The preview shows a dozen or so passengers trapped in a snow-grounded train after a murder has occurred on board. The characters include the typical fiends from a classic murder mystery, including a butler, a maid, a widow, a valet, a count and his wife, and an old woman and her lady in waiting. The story is based on the world-renowned novel by Agatha Christie, which was adapted for the screen for the first time in an Oscar-nominated film in 1974. This adaptation seems updated for 2017, promising more action, intrigue, and explosions than the 1970s talkies.

And the cast is just as star studded as that version. Here we have Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley and Josh Gad as just some of the stars of the packed movie.

The movie, directed by actor/filmmaker Kenneth Branagh, who stars as the main character, Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, will be released on November 10, 2017.

Check out the trailer below and let us know your thoughts! We think this looks great.
