Welcome back, everyone! We’re still recovering from the blockbuster weekend that was Thor: Ragnarok (listen to our review of that HERE), and it’s time to move on to this weekend’s cinematic heavyweight,
Murder on the Orient Express
With a star-studded cast including Kenneth Branagh, Johnny Depp, Daisy Ridley, Judi Dench, Willem Dafoe, Michelle Pfieffer, Josh Gad, Leslie Odom, Jr., and Penelope Cruz, Hollywood has bet big on this adaptation of one of Agatha Christie’s most popular works.
Can also-director Branagh keep such a wide-ranging cast contained, much like their cinematic counterparts are contained on the titular train? Or will the vastness of the cast escape his control?
Be warned: we take a tangent into some dark places in Hollywood as we talk about the upcoming awards season.
