It is a prequel or follow up of ‘Murder on the Orient express’ film released in 2017. In this movie Kenneth and Tom Bateman are also returning as Hercule Poirot and Bouc. As we saw the glimpses of story in the trailer that everyone has a reason to want Heiress (Linnet Ridgeway) dead. Mrs Van Schuyler has strong desire for Linnet Jewellery, maid of Linnet is upset because she (Linnet) didn’t gave him a promised dowry, and Salome Otterbourne (a writer by profession) facing a law suit filed by Linnet, the daughter of writer Salome want Linnet dead because she want to protect her mother. Jacqueline Bellefort (a former friend of her) was upset with Ridgway as she stole her fiance from her. Another person named Andrew Pennington has been going through a hearing as he embezzled with Linnet’ Family. So, right after the murder on the cruise ship detective Hercule Poirot was informed about the murder as he is available on the ship and his ongoing peaceful vacation turned into search for a mysterious murderer.
The initial scenes of the trailer are depicting that everyone is happy from outside but they have tremendous jealousy for each other.And you can feel it when in a part of trailer Poirot said,’ Have you ever loved someone so much, and driven by jealousy that you might kill a person. Also we can hear him saying the crime is murder and murderer is one of you. In the end of the trailer he said ,’I have investigated many murders but this murder changed the shape of my soul. But the real tension starts building when all the characters are seen distressed by every passing minute. Besides this he assured that he will stop only after he’ll find the killer in any possible way.
At the end of the previous movie ‘ Murder on the Orient Express (2017)’ he was told about the another murder on the nile river. But in the novel he was on the boat when murder was committed. That is why there is a little confusion which will be clear after the release. This is the second film of 2020 directed by Kenneth, other is Artemis Fowl (2020). Both film have a parent company ‘Disney’. while the film ‘ Artemis Fowl’ was released on Disney+ Hotstar due to the delay caused by covid-19 pandemic. But as per the mutual agreement between 20th century fox and Disney it was decided that ‘Death on the Nile’ will be released in theaters at any cost.
