Murder on the Orient Express

Yes, it’s a really great cast. But I wonder: who is this film aimed at? Surely the audience for Agatha Christie is the same audience who watched the film the first time around – and they (we) know who did the killing? Is there suddenly a big run on Agatha Christie novels that made someone think that there’d be demand? Is the chucking in of Penny Cruz and a black doctor going to hit it out of the park with minority audiences, state-side? Is Johnny Depp enough of a thing? With adults? I don’t know. Seems like a reach, however good the movie is technically.
