It will hit the theaters in September Mystery in Venice, the new big screen adaptation of the saga of Agatha Christie novels by director Kenneth Branagh after Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile. On the occasion of this premiere, we take this opportunity to remember some of the best mystery films and series created by the author and that can be found on the platform. streaming.
we start Murder on the Orient Express Where we have the famous detective Hercule Poirot as the protagonist, played by Branagh himself. Available on Disney+, as its title indicates, it’s a train journey, but not just one. And it is that on this locomotive, Poirot will meet the most disparate characters along the way, while trying to figure out who is who among them (among the cast we can find brilliant performances by Judi Dench, Daisy Ridley, Michelle Pfeiffer or Penelope Cruz) ends the life of Samuel Ratchet, an American millionaire (played by Johnny Depp), whose body has been stabbed multiple times. Will they, as spectators, be able to find the culprit before Poirot shares his findings?
And if you’re left with a thirst for secrets, know that the same platform also exists for the sequel Death on the Nile, starring and director Kenneth Branagh. This time Egypt is our next destination.
A Belgian detective’s Egyptian vacation aboard a glamorous steamboat is disrupted by the hunt for a murderer when a picture-perfect couple’s idyllic honeymoon (played by Gal Gadot and Armie Hammer) is severely cut short. More sad.
But not only this. Prime Video has become a bastion of mystery in recent years and in its catalog we can find more than one reference to Agatha Christie (some of them paid). In this sense, if we want to continue to enjoy the mysteries that Hercule Poirot will encounter during his adventures, we have four seasons of the series Agatha Christie’s Poirot with the British actor David Suchet, who takes Peter Ustinov (Poirot in the film adaptation).
And if we want to find other records, we can even find her other great researcher, Miss Marple, in a three-season series called Agatha Christie’s Marple. In this case we will have the opportunity to meet Jane, an perceptive and curious woman, played by Geraldine McEwan in this novel. Everything is set to warm up the engines for the premiere of Mystery in Venice.
