What begins as a routine journey on the luxurious Orient Express soon unfurls into Agatha Christie's most famous murder mystery. This all-star production features lead performances from Tom Conti ( The Dark Knight Rises, Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence) as Hercule Poirot, Sophie Okonedo ( After Earth, Hotel Rwanda and Ace Ventura) and Eddie Marsan ( Sherlock Holmes, V for Vendetta and Hancock) plus a full supporting cast.
I LOVE EVERYTHING THAT AGATHA CHRISTIE HAS WRITTEN. HAVE BEEN A FAN OF MS. CHRISTIE'S FOR DECADES. LOOKING FORWARD TO WATCHING THE UPDATED VERSION OF AGATHA CHRISTIE'S "MYSTERY ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS" WITH DAVID SUCHET.

In a remote house in the middle of Dartmoor, six shadowy figures huddle around a table for a seance. Tension rises as the spirits spell out a chilling message: "Captain Trevelyan...dead...murder." Is this black magic or simply a macabre joke? The only way to be certain is to locate Captain Trevelyan. Unfortunately, his home is six miles away and, with snowdrifts blocking the roads, someone will have to make the journey on foot....
LOVED THE BOOK AND THE WAY AGATHA CJHRISTIE DRAWS HER CHARACTERS TOGETHER AND ALWAYS LEAVES YOU HANGING.
