A classic whodunnit never goes out of style, which is why Kenneth Branagh’s Death OnThe Nile’s new trailer will have you glued to the screen till the very end. The developers of Ali Fazal’s third Hollywood movie, Death OnThe Nile, uploaded a new trailer of the murder mystery with a revised release date on social media on Tuesday, piqued the Internet’s interest in the picture.
Gal Gadot, Kenneth Branagh, Armie Hammer, Tom Bateman, Annette Bening, Russell Brand, Ali Fazal, Rose Leslie, Dawn French, Sophie Okonedo, Jennifer Saunders, and Letitia Wright feature in the film, which is based on Agatha Christie’s classic novel of the same name.
The teaser depicts newlyweds Simon Doyle (Armie Hammer) and Linnet Ridgeway Doyle (Gal Gadot) being greeted with pomp and circumstance aboard a Nile River cruise ship. Linnet Ridgeway Doyle is murdered on the voyage, and detective Hercule Poirot (played by director Kenneth Branagh) is tasked with catching the killer, so the couple’s wedding celebrations are cut short.
Emma Mackey, Ali Fazal, Tom Bateman, Armie Hammer, Rose Leslie, Annette Bening, Russell Brand, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, Ali Fazal, Sophie Okonedo, and Letitia Wright were among the passengers on the trip – is becoming a suspect of the murder with each passing moment, and Hercule Poirot is hell-bent on catching the murderer as soon as possible.
Ali Fazal’s third international project is Stephen Frears’ 2017 picture Victoria And Abdul, in which legendary actress Judi Dench co-stars, and the 2015 blockbuster Furious 7. Back home, the actor is most known for his roles in the Mirzapur television series and films such as 3 Idiots and Prassthanam.
In a few scenes in the Death On The Nile trailer, Armie Hammer, who is accused of sexual assault, appears. The actor, who has denied the rape allegations, has been withdrawn from a number of projects after numerous women publicly accused him of sexual misconduct.
Murder On The Orient Express was released in 2017, while Death OnThe Nile is the sequel. The film’s first official trailer debuted in August of last year.
Will the movie be available on Hulu?
No, the movie is not going to release on Hulu. Don’t forget about Hulu if you want to catch up on the best films of 2021. It’s secretly one of the best venues for streaming new arthouse films. Bergman Island, directed by Mia Hansen-Lve, and I’m Your Man, directed by Maria Schrader, will be available on the service in January 2022. (It was one among our favorites at last year’s TIFF.)
In terms of catalog titles, paranoia appears to be the theme in January, with titles like Black Bear, Black Sunday, Devil InA Blue Dress, Fire in the Sky, Jacob’s Ladder, and Panic Room all appearing on the service. Is it just a coincidence, or is it a subconscious reflection of nearly two years of pandemic anxiety? In any case, if you’re not in the mood for anything nefarious, Sergio Leone and Noah Baumbach can assist.
Where to watch this movie?
Death on the Nile will be released in the United States on February 11th. The book was originally adapted for the big screen in a film starring Peter Ustinov as Poirot, and later for a television episode starring David Suchet in the Poirot television series. There have been rumors of a ‘shared world’ of Christie characters, which could include Miss Marple, Christie’s other fan-favorite creation.
