death on the nile

The recent film adaption by 20th Century Studios of the Agatha Cristie mystery novel DEATH ON THE NAIL sailed into Digital availability today and on April 5 can be added to your home entertainment video library via 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD as well. This film featuring an all-star cast brings new life to a story featuring murder, the majestic Tiffany Diamond, exotic Egyptian locals along the Nile River, and the sleuthing skills of renowned detective Hercule Poirot. Death on the Nile is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for violence, bloody imagery and sexual material.

Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot’s spectacular Egyptian vacation aboard a river boat becomes a terrifying search for a murderer after a picture-perfect couple’s honeymoon is cut tragically short. Enhancing the tension of the situation is the presence of The Tiffany Diamond, the world's largest and finest yellow diamond, on the river boat. Based on Agatha Christie’s novel, this tale of passion and jealousy is filled with wicked twists and turns until its shocking finale. The film's cast includes Kenneth Branagh (Hercule Poirot), Tom Bateman (Bouc), Annette Bening (Euphemia Bouc), Russell Brand (Dr. Bessner), Ali Fazal (Andrew Katchadourian), Dawn French (Bowers), Gal Gadot (Linnet Ridgeway Doyle), Armie Hammer (Simon Doyle), Rose Leslie (Louise Bourget), Emma Mackey (Jacqueline de Bellefort), Sophie Okonedo (Salome Otterbourne), Jennifer Saunders (Marie Van Schuyler) and Letitia Wright (Rosalie Otterbourne).
