Must See Movie Releases of the Week (Feb. 27)


Was it the Butler? The Assistant? Missionary? Doctor? Maybe it was the widow? Someone committed a murder on the Orient Express train and it’s up to Kenneth Branagh’s character Hercule Poirot to figure it out. Not only does Branagh star in the leading role, but he’s also the director of the film.

Boasting an all-star cast of top actors in Hollywood, this mystery drama keeps you on your toes trying to figure out whodunit. The story almost entirely takes places through throughout the cabins of the train that travels through the glorious mountainous regions of Europe. Based on Agatha Christie’s best-selling novel, the film version feels like a stage play at times (in a good way). With the likes of Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penelope Cruz and Willem Dafoe, you can’t go wrong checking out this film.

MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS is out now on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital
