Sadly, I haven’t watched this new trailer yet. This is one of my most anticipated movies for the rest of the year and I want to watch this as soon as I possibly can, but I’m waiting to click play for a live trailer reaction later this afternoon for our YouTube channel. Going off of the first trailer, I’m really looking forward to the set pieces and world Branagh has created for this story as the first bit of footage was extremely stylish. Also the murder mystery aspect. Who did it and why? If the trailers are any indication, the film will not only keep the audiences interest visually, but story wise as well.
Check out the first trailer below and let me know what you think of it in the comments, without spoilers please! Will you be jumping aboard the Orient Express? Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express also stars Penelope Cruz, Judi Dench and Leslie Odom Jr. and will be arriving in theaters on November 10th.
