Watch the Official Trailer for Murder on the Orient Express

The third motion-picture adaptation of the 1934 novel by legendary mystery writer Agatha Christie, Murder on the Orient Express follows Hercule Poirot as he attempts to solve a murder aboard a train before the murderer strikes again.

I have to say, this trailer does a refreshing job introducing the concept of the movie without spoiling anything. Kind of important when the plot involves solving a murder mystery.

You meet the star-studded cast, you meet the characters they play, and you get a nice introduction to the concept of the movie. Also, take note of the visuals. The visuals are pretty nice. I wish more trailers introduced their movies this way. A couple things; did they really have to use Imagine Dragons for the trailer music? If I was any more sick of that song it would give me sepsis. Also, I’m still finding it hard to look at Johnny Depp right now.

Kenneth Branagh takes the role of Detective Poirot (along with directing the film), and the cast is amazingly deep. Along with Depp and Branagh, Murder on the Orient Express stars Penelope Cruz, Daisy Ridley, William Dafoe, Josh Gad, Michell Pfeiffer, Olivia Colman, and a handful of other outstanding actors. If this movie messes up with that kind of talent, well…let’s just say they really shouldn’t.

The film is scheduled for release on November 10.
