Cast of Murder on the Orient Express (2017)

‘Murder on the Orient Express’

Starring: Kenneth Branaugh, Michelle Pfeiffer

Directed by: Kenneth Branaugh

Rated: PG-13

Unfair as it may be, there will be comparisons between this version of the Agatha Christie novel and the 1974 adaptation that was an immensely satisfying piece of entertainment.
