Previously, Agatha's story has been adapted into a radio play that was originally broadcast that ran from December 28, 1992 to January 1, 1993. It starred John Moffat as Poirot, while André Maranne appeared as Bouc, Joss Ackland as Cassetti, Sylvia Syms as Mrs. Hubbard, Siân Phillips as Princess Dragomiroff, Francesca Annis as Mary Debenham, and Peter Polycarpou as Dr. Constantine. Furthermore, MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS has also been adapted for the silver screen in 1974 thanks to director Sidney Lumet.

Branagh's MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS will be pulling into theaters on November 10, 2017. Be sure to check back with us tomorrow when the trailer goes live!

Extra Tidbit: The very first publication of the story was in a six-part serialization featured in the Saturday Evening Post in 1933 in the US, under the title Murder on the Calais Coach.
