‘Death on the Nile’ heading to Disney+ this March

Disney has announced that 20th Century Studios’ mystery-thriller Death on the Nile, directed by and starring eight-time Academy Award® nominee Kenneth Branagh and featuring an all-star ensemble cast, will debut 30 March, 2022 on Disney+ in the UK & Ireland.

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 dramatic tale of love gone wrong features a cosmopolitan group of impeccably dressed travelers and enough wicked twists and turns to leave audiences guessing until the final, shocking denouement. Filmed with 65mm Panavision cameras in late 2019, “Death on the Nile” transports audiences to the 1930s, recreating many of the locations that served as inspiration for Christie’s glamorous, high society thriller.  

Based on the beloved 1937 novel by acclaimed author Agatha Christie, the film stars Kenneth Branagh, back as the iconic detective Hercule Poirot, and is joined by Tom Bateman, Annette Bening, Russell Brand, Ali Fazal, Dawn French, Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Rose Leslie, Emma Mackey, Sophie Okonedo, Jennifer Saunders and Letitia Wright.
