STORY: Agatha Christie, the author dubbed the 'Queen of Crime,' is returning to the big screen after a decades-long absence with an adaptation of "Murder on the Orient Express." The new film, directed by Kenneth Branagh, premiered in London on Thursday (Nov. 2) The star-studded cast, including Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer , walked the red carpet. "Previous film versions have been romps and they've been wonderful, but it felt like with this group of actors it could get a little more dark and a little more emotional, and surprise and divert in a different way," Branagh told Reuters at the film's premiere. A 'whodunit' tale, the film follows Branagh's detective as he seeks to unmask a murderer among the passengers on board the glamorous train, trapped by an avalanche in mountainous terrain in southern Europe. Christie, who died in 1976 aged 85, is cited by the Guinness Book of World Records as the bestselling novelist of all time. "Murder on the Orient Express," opens in the UK on November 3.
