In Agatha Christie's murder mystery detective novel, "Murder on the Orient Express," characters take a chilling ride on a train that lands them in the middle of a mysterious murder plot. Now, it's coming to life on the big screen. Starring Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley and Josh Gad, the film revives the classic story with stunning visuals.
