Death On The Nile: 2020’s most anticipated movie has taken over social media by storm!
Director Kenneth Branagh (who plays Hercule Poirot) returns with the sequel to 2017’s “Murder on the Orient Express,”. It would seem that with a star-studded cast including Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Emma Mackey, Ali Fazal, Letitia Wright, he can’t really go wrong! Therefore audiences are impatiently awaiting the release of a much needed suspense thriller!
The murder mystery, adaptation of Agatha Christie’s novel (published 1937), and screenplay by Michael Green, picks up with the Belgian Inspector Hercule Poirot. The inspector is aboard a ritzy cruise on the Nile. Poirot finds himself investigating a murder after a newly weds’ honeymoon takes a turn for the worse.
Plot and Cast
The story follows unquenchable passion, lust, love paired with debilitated jealousy between the passengers and the outcome has “altered the shape” of Hercule’s soul.
By the looks of it, Linnet Doyle (Gal Gadot), Simon Doyle (Armie Hammer), Jacqueline De Bellefort (Emma Mackey), Andrew (Ali Fazal) , Bouc (Tom Bateman) all have secrets they’re hiding. Hence the aura of anxiety and uncertainty surrounding them is very tangible. “The murderer is any one of them.” (Can you guess who?)
The 20th Century Fox Production gives the audience spectacular snippets of the Egyptian deserts and the sublime pyramids. And if that wasn’t enough, the seemingly calm, yet untamed River Nile will inspire the travel bug in you. (Yes, the cinematography is ironically lively.)
Death On The Nile is a sequel to Murder on the Orient Express (which had audiences go crazy worldwide in 2017 and made a whopping 352.8 million USD at the Box Office). Therefore we can’t help but wonder if it will live up to expectations and give 2020 a movie to be remembered.
