We were excited when we first caught wind that this movie was in the works. Unfortunately, the release was pushed back like many other movies. This one is still a way off with a new release date of February 11th of next year, but we're hoping it will be well worth the wait.
I'm a fan of the 1978 version with Bette Davis, Maggie Smith & Angela Lansbury. Just about anything Angela Lansbury is usually enough to catch my attention. I'm rather excited for this remake and the new cast. Kenneth Branagh is returning as the iconic detective Hercule Poirot after last portraying the role in 2017's Murder on the Orient Express. We can't wait for this one to release next February.
Here's the blurb from the 20th Century Studios website:
Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot’s Egyptian vacation aboard a glamorous river steamer turns into a terrifying search for a murderer when a picture-perfect couple’s idyllic honeymoon is tragically cut short. Set against an epic landscape of sweeping desert vistas and the majestic Giza pyramids, this tale of unbridled passion and incapacitating jealousy features a cosmopolitan group of impeccably dressed travelers, and enough wicked twists and turns to leave audiences guessing until the final, shocking denouement.
