In DEATH ON THE NILE, Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot’s Egyptian vacation aboard a glamorous river steamer turns into a terrifying search for a murderer when a picture-perfect couple’s idyllic honeymoon is tragically cut short. Set against an epic landscape of sweeping desert vistas and the majestic Giza pyramids, this tale of unbridled passion and incapacitating jealousy features a cosmopolitan group of impeccably dressed travelers, and enough wicked twists and turns to leave audiences guessing until the final, shocking denouement.

He is joined by an all-star cast of suspects which includes: Tom Bateman (who reprises the role of Bouc from Murder on the Orient Express), four-time Oscar® nominee Annette Bening (Captain Marvel), Russell Brand (“Ballers”), Ali Fazal (Victoria & Abdul), Dawn French (“French and Saunders”), Gal Gadot (“Wonder Woman”), Armie Hammer (Call Me by Your Name), Rose Leslie (“Game of Thrones”), Emma Mackey (“Sex Education”), Sophie Okonedo (The Secret Life of Bees), Jennifer Saunders (“Absolutely Fabulous”) and Letitia Wright (Black Panther).
