Murder on the Orient Express

HBO | 8:00 pm

The fourth screen adaptation of Agatha Christie’s durable mystery about a fatal stabbing aboard a train finds director Kenneth Branagh also sleuthing the case as Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, who confronts a long list of suspects played by such luminaries as Judi Dench, Penelope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Johnny Depp, Derek Jacobi and Michelle Pfeiffer. Critics carped that this 2017 remake didn’t really bring anything new to the party, but the movie raked in plenty of coin at the global box office.
