Detective Hercule Poirot is all set to solve yet another mystery that flummoxes most men. Death on the Nile, adapted from Agatha Christie’s 1987 novel of the same name, unveiled its trailer recently.

As with most intriguing murder mysteries, the trailer teases the viewer with an unassuming beginning. A rich newly married couple decide to bring aboard celebrations on a cruise ship, the SS Karnak, which journeys across the Nile River along with its select group of passengers, which includes Poirot. But Poirot discovers that he was invited to the same with an express purpose, to appease the concerns of the new bride who is convinced that someone is trying to cause her harm. Her suspicions of there being a dangerous person on board is confirmed when a shocking murder occurs.

Poirot wastes no time in leaping into action, rounding up the passengers, who are now murder suspects, and questioning them. Poirot must hurry, as the risk of the murderer striking again gets higher with each passing hour.

Kenneth Branagh and Tom Bateman reprise their roles as Poirot and his friend Bouc. They are joined by an ensemble cast featuring Annette Bening, Russell Brand, Ali Fazal, Dawn French, Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Rose Leslie, Emma Mackey, Sophie Okonedo, Jennifer Saunders, and Letitia Wright.

The upcoming film is a follow up to 2017’s Murder on the Orient Express, another adaptation of a Christie novel. Branagh served as director on both films in addition to starring in them as well.

Death on the Nile is scheduled for a theatrical release on February 11, 2022.
