Watch the latest trailer:
The official synopsis reads: “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.”
Death on the Nile is based on Agatha Christie’s classic murder mystery novel, originally published in 1937.
2022 looks set to be a great year for Kenneth Branagh, with the director and star being being tipped for Oscar success at next year’s Academy Awards for Belfast.
Set in the late 1960s in Northern Ireland, Branagh’s recent period drama movie stars Caitriona Balfe (Outlander), Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey), Dame Judi Dench (Skyfall), and Colin Morgan (Merlin).
