Agatha Christie's most famous murder mystery has been adapted for the screen by Kenneth Branagh. Take a look at the passengers on board this train.

The film opens just after midnight when a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it has one less passenger on board.

An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot (Kenneth Branagh) must identify the murderer - in case he or she decides to strike again.

The stellar cast on board the train includes Mary Debenham (Daisy Ridley), Princess Natalia Dragomiroff (Judi Dench), Pilar Estravados (Penélope Cruz), Hector MacQueen (Josh Gad), and Gerhard Hardman (Willem Dafoe), Hildegaarde Schmidt (Olivia Colman), Mrs Caroline Hubbard (Michelle Pfeiffer), Dr. Arbuthnot (Leslie Odom Jr), M. Bouc (Tom Bateman), Biniamino Marquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), Pierre Michel (Marwan Kenzari), Masterman (Derek Jacobi), Countess Elena Andrenyi (Lucy Boynton) and Count Rudolph Andrenyi (Sergei Polunin).

The film is out in November.
