Today 20th Century Fox released a behind-the-scenes featurette exploring their upcoming adaptation of Agatha Christie’s famous novel – Murder on the Orient Express.
My favorite part of films is always being able to get a chance to look at behind-the-scenes footage. Knowing that Kenneth Branagh had a mostly practical set for the actors to engage with just makes me super happy. Then again, I am a huge fan of practical effects over special effects.
The official synopsis for the film is below:
A lavish trip through Europe quickly unfolds into a race against time to solve a murder aboard a train. Everyone’s a suspect as Detective Hercule Poirot sifts through 13 strangers to find the killer before another person ends up dead.
