The sexist new poster for Murder on the Orient Express has arrived.
Why call it sexist I hear you cry. Just look at cast list ( and what awards some have won ). Why are two people who have, just, been nominated for an OSCAR are more prominent that the female OSCAR winners.
It does look like the studio is pinning, again, another film’s success on Depp & Branagh. Two people who haven’t had the best box office figures over the last couple of years.
It also has the feel of a quickly put together set of copy & paste job of getting all the cast on the poster. It also tends to drag your eyes away from the 2 mail leads into the center of the poster to where the award winners are.
What starts out as a lavish train ride through Europe quickly unfolds into one of the most stylish, suspenseful and thrilling mysteries ever told. From the novel by best-selling author Agatha Christie, “Murder on the Orient Express” tells the tale of thirteen strangers stranded on a train, where everyone’s a suspect. One man must race against time to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again.
Killing in UK cinemas from November 3, 2017
