Oscar Winner Kenneth Branagh's Poirot Explained In Death On The Nile Bonus Feature Clip [Exclusive]

After seven Oscar nominations since his splashy debut in 1990's "Henry V," Kenneth Branagh finally took home his first Academy Award for the screenplay for "Belfast" this past Sunday. Lest you forget, the brilliantly talented multi-hyphenate has another movie arriving on home video this week: The star-studded sequel to "Murder on the Orient Express," titled "Death on the Nile." The film, based on the famed Agatha Christie mystery yarn, opened in theaters only last month and did a respectable $134 million worldwide, and there's also a third movie starring Branagh as Belgian detective Hercule Poirot currently in the planning stages at 20th Century Studios.

The folks at Disney were kind enough to provide /Film with an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip from the "Death on the Nile" bonus features, in which the crew expounds on the mindset of Branagh's Poirot. Check out the clip below.
