Let us hope they do justice to the book. They certainly have the cast for it.

It's a fine line with Poirot. Too often he comes across as a parody. Hoping this one doesn't cross it.

If this superb cast can't bring suspense and surprise to this riveting story, it will be a major shame.

The sharpness of the film matches the sharpness of Poirot; I am thrilled they have remade the classic. I will be in the theater this November appreciating Ms. Christie once again.

I THINK I have read every Agatha Christie book...and enjoyed them all. It will be hard to accept someone new as Hercule Poirot...but it has been done before!

Looking forward to the movie but it has a lot to prove vs the 1974 movie with Lauren Bacall. Hopefully it will turn on the current generation onto Agatha Christie - a mastermind of mystery and my favorite author.
