THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Kenneth Branagh’s star-studded adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express pulled into Las Vegas with the first footage at CinemaCon Thursday.

Branagh directs and stars in the Fox film, which also features Penelope Cruz, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Leslie Odom Jr., Daisy Ridley, Michael Pena and Judi Dench among the cast.

The story centers around a murder onboard the famous train and introduces Belgian detective Hercule Poirot (Branagh), who must solve the case while being surrounded by duplicitous passengers.

Branagh, sending in a video from Malta where he’s filming the project, said “we’ve assembled an amazing group” of his cast. “This is not only a who dunnit and how dunnit, it’s crucially a why dunnit,” he said.

The stylish trailer shows a train traveling through a snowy landscape. In it is a varied cast of characters, all of whom could be the murderer.

“I see evil on this train,” says a voice. We get our first look at many of the stars in their characters, and the final frame is of Barangh’s Hercule Poirot, sporting blonde hair and a massive grey mustache.

The film is scheduled for release on November 22.
