First Glance: “Death on the Nile”


Kenneth Branagh steps back into the shoes of Belgian super sleuth Hercule Poirot in “Death on the Nile”. It’s the follow up to “Murder on the Orient Express”, Branagh’s star-studded 2017 adaptation of Agatha Christie’s classic 1934 novel. Once again Branagh directs and Michael Green returns as screenwriter.

This time around Poirot is on vacation in Egypt when he is suddenly thrust into the middle of a murder mystery with a list of suspects as long as the Nile. They include Gal Gadot, Annette Benning, Arnie Hammer, Tom Bateman, Russell Brand, Letitia Wright among others. The first trailer gives an entertaining and stylish glimpse into what Branagh and company have in store for us.

“Death on the Nile” opens October 23rd in theaters. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.

  1. I saw some of his take on Murder on the Orient Express which I thought was alright yet this one I feel is more intriguing. Notably for its cast (as it doesn’t feature Josh Gad who I can’t really stand).

    • I’m interested in it for the same reason. I also like the idea behind this as an updated series. I really hope this is good so Branagh can keep it going.
