That means a return to the days of yore, when filmmakers used film cameras and not digital. A new Murder on the Orient Express featurette dives into Branagh’s process, and the joy it gives actors to perform without a green screen.

Murder on the Orient Express

Crime stories have been all the rage lately, ranging from the documentary series Making a Murderer to the podcast Serial and the dramatization of one of the most publicized trials ever in The People vs O.J. Simpson. This fall we’ll get another one, but it’ll be a classic that millions have either read or seen before.

Murder on the Orient Express is a new adaptation of Agatha Christie’s classic novel or a remake of Sidney Lumet’s 1974 film adaptation, however you want to look at it. The whodunit won’t hit theaters until November, but some first look photos have just arrived showing off the star-studded cast that includes Johnny Depp, Judi Dench, Michelle Pfeiffer, Josh Gad, Daisy Ridley, Penelope Cruz, Olivia Colman, Leslie Odom Jr, Willem Dafoe, Tom Bateman, Derek Jacobi and the film’s director, Kenneth Branagh, with one of the most impressive mustaches the big screen as ever seen.

Our own Peter Sciretta saw some footage at CinemaCon and said it looks promising, complete with some stellar costume and production design. Now you can see what he was talking about in the first Murder on the Orient Express remake photos below. Read More »

Daisy Ridley as Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Daisy Ridley may have been new to movie stardom circa Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but by now she’s an old pro at dodging questions. Watch as shrugs that she doesn’t think Rey’s parentage is really “so important,” or coolly deflects further inquiries with “curiosity is a wonderful thing.” Unfortunately for her, though, fans and journalists aren’t the only ones she has to watch out for.

For the past several weeks, Josh Gad — Ridley’s co-star in the Murder on the Orient Express remake — has been trying his damnedest to get some Star Wars: The Last Jedi answers from her, even enlisting the help of Judi Dench. So far, Ridley’s resisted. But can she continue to stand firm against all of Gad’s famous friends? Find out below.  Read More »

murder on the orient express cast

When Willem Dafoe signs up for a movie, that film is pretty much guaranteed to have at least one good performance. We expect nothing less of Dafoe, an actor I can’t think of giving an underwhelming performance in recent memory. Not only is he consistent, he’s also great more often than not, so it’s satisfying to learn he’s joined Kenneth Branagh‘s Murder on the Orient Express remake.

Below, learn more about the Murder on the Orient Express cast.
