A behind the scenes look at Murder on the Orient Express has been released by 20th Century Fox.

“We wanted to bring the full experience to the audience, so I shot on film,” says helmer/actor Kenneth Branagh, whose directorial credits include Hamlet (1996), Thor and Cinderella (2015). “It essentially means it looks sharper, richer, more colourful and feels like you’re inside it.”



The upcoming Agatha Christie adaptation – which tells of a detective who must solve a murder with various suspects whilst their train is stranded – boasts quite the cast, including Penelope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley and Josh Gad. “You would look around and be like, ‘This is crazy,'” says Gad.

Murder on the Orient Express arrives in Australia on November 9 and hits the US on November 10.
