DEATH ON THE NILE New Trailer
Another much, much delayed movie victim of COVID is finally getting ready for release. Fourteen months ago we had a trailer for this movie, and now, finally, we get a follow-up trailer for Agatha Christie’s Death on the Nile from Fox Studios.
This is a follow-up to Murder On The Orient Express and Academy Award nominee Kenneth Branagh is back as detective Hercule Poirot. Like that movie he also directs.
Poirot is aboard a luxurious river steamer in Egypt, among the glamorous passengers, when violent deaths rip through the ship.
This is the second big-screen adaptation. A 1978 film starred Peter Ustinov, David Niven, Mia Farrow, Angela Lansbury, Maggie Smith, and George Kennedy. It has also been adapted in the UK for television with David Suchet in the role of Poirot.
They have a unique challenge here. Since the movie was shot, there were some allegations made about one of the stars of the movie, Armie Hammer, and a scandal enveloped the actor. Allegations were investigated and, to date, no charges have been brought. However, this is Hollywood and with PR teams in full flight innocent until proven guilty does not apply.
Agents dropped him and filmmakers removed him from projects. This movie was already in the can, so what to do?
The new trailer seems to play down his involvement, particularly from the first trailer. His character is essentially the second male lead if the story is presented as per the novel so it will be interesting to see how they play this.
Annette Bening, Letitia Wright, Russell Brand, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, Rose Leslie, Tom Bateman, Sophie Okonedo, Emma Mackey, and Ali Fazal co-star in the film.
The release date is February 11th, 2022.
