    Yup, the trailer screams this is a sequel to Murder on the Orient Express.

    The trailer did nothing for me.

    Gal Gadot is very beautiful but I do not think she is a good actress. Of course I will see this because of my love for Agatha Christie stories and my love for Murder on the Orient Express.

    Scarlett Johansson would have been better imo.

    I’m gonna say it- it looks like rubbish to me. I’ve read a decent number of Agatha Christie novels and they all have a very specific vibe to them. Orient Express was an average movie, it had a cool aesthetic but was dragged down by mediocre performances and weird hamfisted and overly dramatized sequences like the “last supper” climax and the “Colonel chasing Poirot through the train with a gun” action sequence. This one just doesn’t do it for me, and I think it’ll be worse than Orient Express (hope I’m proven wrong). I liked the book a lot, but Gal Gadot and Emma Mackey have been cast in the wrong roles. Armie Hammer too. I have no faith in Gadot and his acting abilities to be honest. They’ve also cut a couple of characters I believe (Letitia Wright’s character’s love interest and his mother), and added Bouc (why I do not know but I’m not entirely opposed to it cuz Tom Bateman’s cute af).

    Will this not be an accurate adaptation of the book? Because Orient Express ends with someone saying to Poirot “you must come! there’s been a death on the Nile (dun dun dun)”, whereas in the original story Poirot is already vacationing with the cast of characters in Egypt and his prior interactions with the people involved are how he’s able to solve the case.

    Is this still going to be promoted and widely released with Hammer’s downfall?

    With some Netflix-sponsored de-aging procedure?

    Didn’t like the first remake at all so have no faith in this, but will watch for the casting of French and Saunders which is genius.
