So I finally had time to sit down and watch the trailer for the new Death on the Nile movie and um … I don’t see the hype.

I remember when the trailer dropped how excited everyone was on social media, and now I’m just sitting here like … I JUST watched Knives Out a few weeks ago! A few weeks ago! And I was extremely upset.

I’m not ready to watch another disappointing mystery murder film.

This trailer did absolutely nothing for me!

I’m not excited to watch Death on the Nile at ALL right now. However, I will watch it to see my friend Leticia kill it.


Now I will say that I do like Agatha Christie, but I haven’t read this book, so again … why am I even writing this post?

LETICIA WRGHT! Duh! (And because I know some of you will probably love this.)

Have you checked out the trailer yet?

Watch the trailer below

Death on the Nile is set to be released on October 23, 2020.

However, with everything going on these days, we’ll see if that actually happens!

I’ll keep you posted.

About 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.

“Death on the Nile” reunites the filmmaking team behind 2017’s global hit “Murder on the Orient Express,” and stars five-time Academy Award® nominee Kenneth Branagh as the iconic detective Hercule Poirot.

He is joined by an all-star cast of suspects, including: Tom Bateman, four-time Oscar® nominee Annette Bening, Russell Brand, Ali Fazal, Dawn French, Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Rose Leslie, Emma Mackey, Sophie Okonedo, Jennifer Saunders and Letitia Wright.

“Death on the Nile” is written by Michael Green, adapted from Christie’s novel, and is produced by Ridley Scott, Mark Gordon, Simon Kinberg, Kenneth Branagh, Judy Hofflund and Kevin J. Walsh, with Matthew Jenkins, James Prichard and Matthew Prichard serving as executive producers.

Now be honest, did you get excited after watching the Death on the Nile trailer?
