For good or bad, Johnny Depp's character won't be around for too long in Murder on the Orient Express, as his character's death serves as the basis for the iconic train-based mystery. With an all-star list of suspects—Daisy Ridley, Michelle Pfeiffer, Willem Dafoe, Leslie Odom, Jr., Judi Dench, Derek Jacobi, and Josh Gad—it's up to Agatha Christie's iconic detective Hercule Poirot (Kenneth Branagh) to solve the murder of Edward Ratchett.
"One of my favorite films of Martin Scorsese—a man I revere—is Age of Innocence," Branagh told Entertainment Weekly. "One of the things I thought was just so captivating was the way I was entirely transported to nineteenth-century New York. I could taste and smell [everything]. And I wanted to do that with this. I wanted to bring people onto the train, to celebrate a sort of expertise, and craftsmanship, in everything, whether it's a wooden panel or the way something is served."
