You Can’t Trust Anyone in the New ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ Trailer

Subscribe to Kicks 105 on

If you like murder mysteries, absurdly big mustaches, and Judi Dench in fur coats, then Murder on the Orient Express is for you. Kenneth Branagh directs and stars in the adaptation of Agatha Christie’s novel about 13 strangers who all become suspects in a locomotive murder. Was it Josh Gad (unlikely), Penelope Cruz (I hope not), or Johnny Depp (oh, definitely)?

The second trailer for the period murder mystery dropped today and offered an extensive look at those 13 passengers and some potential clues. There’s Branagh as a Belgian (or is that a French accent?) detective Poirot, Depp doing his usual schtick of quirky weirdo villain (snooze) as Mr. Ratchett, a.k.a. “The Gangster,” Gad as his secretary Hector, Daisy Ridley as a governess with the most British name you ever did hear, Mary Debenham, a brazen Michelle Pfeiffer as Mrs. Hubbard, Cruz as a missionary and nurse, and Dench as a Russian princess.

The newest trailer introduces a couple possible murder weapons – a gun, a knife – a body falling off a train, and Pfeiffer serving some icy don’t-you-dare-eff-with-me realness that I personally cannot wait for. After this and mother!, dare I say Pfeiffer may be the best scene-stealer of the year? Here’s the full synopsis:

What starts out as a lavish train ride through Europe quickly unfolds into one of the most stylish, suspenseful and thrilling mysteries ever told. From the novel by best-selling author Agatha Christie, Murder on the Orient Express tells the tale of thirteen strangers stranded on a train, where everyone’s a suspect. One man must race against time to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again. Kenneth Branagh directs and leads an all-star cast including Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley and Josh Gad.

Along with the trailer, Fox debut a new website that you can dig through to look for clues. I tried and failed to figure much out, but try clicking on the objects in the train cabin and see if you can crack it. The film’s gigantic cast also includes Willem Dafoe, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr., Marwan Kenzari, Olivia Colman, Lucy Boynton, Tom Bateman, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, and Sergei Polunin. Murder on the Orient Express rolls into theaters November 10.
