Death On The Nile: Storyline

Since the movie is based on the 1937 Novel of the same name, it’ll follow the same storyline. The story revolves around Poirot, a world-class detective, who becomes involved in a love triangle gone horrifically lousy while on vacation in Egypt.

In Death on the Nile, Hercule Poirot’s Egyptian experience onboard a new streamliner slips into an unnerving quest for a killer when vicious passings break an untainted special first night. This evil story of mad love and its deadly outcomes happens in an epic scene of risk and warning, with enough shocking twists and turns it will leave audiences unsettled and guessing until the final, shocking climax.

“Crimes of passion are hazardously attractive,” says Kenneth Branagh. “Agatha Christie has composed an arresting story of passionate confusion and vicious guiltiness, and Michael Green has by and by composed a screenplay to coordinate. With a loved gathering of long-lasting masterful teammates and a splendid universal cast, it is genuinely a joy to join Disney, Fox and Agatha Christie Ltd in carrying this challenging spine chiller to the big screen. There are notable new twists, an awe-inspiring desert landscape and an opportunity to celebrate big-screen entertainment in glorious 65-millimetre celluloid!”
