Just a few days ago I posted about a Publisher’s Weekly feature on the 100th anniversary of the publication of Agatha Christie’s first mystery. Well, here’s more Christie, though I won’t bother with a link this time (presuming you know how to go to YouTube or wherever on your own) to check out the new trailer for Kenneth Brannagh’s Death On The Nile.
Originally planned for a December 2019 release, the film was pushed back to this October, presumably headed for the big screen and not home views. Brannagh’s back (after 2017’s Murder On The Orient Express) as Christie’s Hercule Poirot, along with Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Sophie Okonedo, Annette Benning…well, the list keeps going. Death On The Nile was scripted by Michael Green, and based on the trailer, looks pretty damn good, so it’s doubly intriguing to read that Brannagh’s interested in developing more after this one, potentially creating a new “cinematic universe” of Christie/Poirot films. I’m not sure I’m ready to waltz into a movie theater just yet, or will be come October, but this one’s tempting.
