20th Century Fox released the first trailer from their upcoming adaptation of Agatha Christie’s famous novel – Murder on the Orient Express. I enjoy how the trailer has introduced us to all of the characters, but has also set up the tension and speculation of the murder on the train.
My only complaint is that they really should have used a different song for the end of the trailer. It’s much too modern for the adaptation and gives the wrong feel.
The official synopsis for the film is below:
A lavish trip through Europe quickly unfolds into a race against time to solve a murder aboard a train. Everyone’s a suspect as Detective Hercule Poirot sifts through 13 strangers to find the killer before another person ends up dead.
