Here comes one more movie from the famous detective novel by Agatha Christie. After completing an important assignment at Allepo, the main character detective Hercule Poirot traveled to Istanbul to have a leisurely stay. Hercule Poirot is the famous fictional character of a major collection of novels written by Agatha Christie. On arriving at the hotel, he is greeted by a telegram. The telegram orders him to cancel all his arrangements and return to London. Being urgent, Poirot demands the concierge to immediately fetch him details about possible ways to reach London at the earliest. With the Orient express being the only means of reaching London immediately, Poirot plans to get on it. The journey on-board the Orient express was expected to be of two and a half days. The plot revolves around this journey onboard the Orient Express. Despite being an unusual time for the journey, the express was packed with travelers. Poirot somehow managed to get a seat on-board after a recommendation. The journey was smooth and the train was running as expected. Poirot is surprised to find a man approaching him for his help. The man sounded worried about his life and needed Poirot to protect him against this threat to his life. The journey on the first day went on smooth. It was only until the second night when Poirot was awakened by a painful cry that came from one of the compartments. This smooth journey turned into a threatening experience when Ratchett, a man on-board, who sought help from Poirot, was found murdered in his own compartment. Poirot was taken aback to witness this unpleasant event during the journey. He, with his witty brain and companions like Monsieur Bouc, took the reins of investigation in his hand. With the train stuck between the ice-clad tracks due to snowdrift, everyone turned out to be a suspect for Poirot. The entire investigation revolved around four clues found nearby the body. With time being the constraint, this race of finding the murderer turned exciting when Poirot started interviewing each person on-board. The detective was left in surprise to see how each one had an alibi for the other. Rather than simplifying the investigation process, this interview made it more difficult to question the credibility of any person. However, with the firm determination to solve the mystery of murder, Poirot continued to weave the series of events together and made a few smart guesses to complete the path of events. With one strong clue relating to the past of the victim, the entire plot laid clear for Poirot. He had to ponder upon certain points that needed to be confirmed. The four clues involved in the investigation included a charred piece of paper, a smashed watch and a pipe cleaner. The charred paper proved to be the strongest link between the victim and the criminal. Although the criminals tried to burn the paper, a piece of it was left readable. This gave the hint to Poirot about the motive of this entire murder scene. After brainstorming the series of events that could have taken place and carrying out almost 2 rounds of interviews with travelers, Poirot reached a conclusion. However, Poirot wanted to make sure that every person on-board agrees to his conclusion. Ultimately, he tactfully tricks a few travelers to reveal the facts that they had been hiding during their interviews. Once his understanding was confirmed he calls in for all the travelers to present his conclusion. After confidently pitching his views on to the audience of travelers, the entire mystery laid out open. The criminals confessed to their malign act.

Interesting facts

The project was announced by the 20th Century Fox production house in December 2013. However, the work on it did not begin until June 2015. Fox hired Kenneth Branagh as the director to guide the direction of the movie adaption of this famous novel. Surprisingly, Kenneth was overwhelmed with the storyline and decided to get on it as an actor too. He acted as the main character in the movie – Detective Hercule Poirot. As the lead actress, Fox approached Angelina Jolie as their first choice. However, she refused to play her part as Fox kept on looking for other replacements fitting the role. Leslie Odem Jr. was approached for an unspecified role in August the same year. He agreed to be a part of this journey without much to say. Following the trend, Penelope was also added to the cast with an unspecified role. Majority of the actors agreed to their roles in September. The search for the film cast concluded on January 25th with Manuel Garcia- Rulfo replacing Michael Pena who preferred to drop out of the film.

The major photo shoot began only in November 2016 in the United Kingdom. Thus, this is a highly grossed film giving the mark of perfect over the years.

Release

The first look of the film was released on 3rd May 2017. Since then, the movie has been shaping up to give you the best experience of its adaptation. The movie is finally all set to release in cinemas across the world on 10th November 2017.

Future Plans

The Chairman of the firm Agatha Christie Ltd is excited to have this movie being released. He, along with the director Branagh is looking forward to glorious success of the movie. If the audience responds positively to the movie, they are planning for sequels of the movie as well.
