Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I'm horrible at predicting box office, but I get a weird feeling that Murder on the Orient Express is going to be really big. It has a ridiculous cast, but more importantly director Kenneth Branagh has gone out of his way to make this small stakes murder mystery look epic in an era dominated by world-ending finales.
Shot in large format, every bit of footage I've seen from this film looks detailed, rich and absolutely made to be seen on the biggest screen possible.
It could be the right movie at the right time... or I could be massively missing the mark with my sketchy box office Nostradamus record. It's just a feeling I got.
Really digging the vibe of this thing. Hope it's as good, involving and fun as the trailers have so far made it out to be. Check out Poirot in full on mustachioed detective mode below:
