I wish they'd gone with David Mitchell as Poirot. Then he could have talked about the "evil voice"

Still, Kenneth Branagh can't be bad, even with a silly moustache, right?

Aside from Poirot's 'stache, they've revamped several characters in order to broaden demographic appeal. If you're a fan of the book, you're probably not going to enjoy this movie.

Did they throw Hastings from the BBC show in there? That would be fun. Someone to ask Poirot the dumbest possible questions?

"But when how did butler with murder, Poirot???"

I've never understand the desire to duplicate the source material.

I'll stick with the David Suchet version. I'm ok with bringing a fresh take on an old franchise, but none of these trailers have given any indication that they've brought anything new or interesting to Poirot. Except for the weird mustache. (Seriously. Poirot came to England as a Belgian refugee fleeing the Germans in World War I. Why would he have a Kaiser Wilhelm style moustache?)

ok counting that one, I think that makes four productions of this I've seen so far. (out of ideas, indeed)
And while Suchet IS Peroit, Peter Ustinov did bring something to the role.

Frankly, David Suchet is to Poroit what Jeremy Brett was to Sherlock.

Judging from a hint in the review, the stupid twist ending is the same as in the book and previous movie.  Why remake this?

This. I love the mustache of the David Suchet version of Poirot. The one on this version just throws me. I see Poirot as a very fussy little man. He wouldn't have such an unkempt mustache. He'd have something very well groomed and shaped.

That.
The johnny deep character's stach is more Poirot. They got it backwards here.

Because if that was your desire you could file off the serial numbers and create your own new story about a fussy genius solving a nigh insoluble crime in an exotic locale. Perhaps on a train going through Nagaland or Assam.

I see.

It certainly looks suspicious.

Spoiler:  The role of Poirot's moustache is played by Trump's hair although William Shatner's toupee was tested during the first round of casting.

Because there's an alternative ending where Dodsworth is Mister Boddy.

In the books it's decribed as an enormous, gigantic, immense, flamboyant moustache - the first thing anybody notices about him So, they finally got it right.

... also, Suchet's 'stache actually looked a lot more like Kaiser Wilhelm's than Brannaugh's does.

Both my husband and my mom have said they want to see the movie. Neither of them have read the book, so I  can't really talk about it with them other than to say the cast looks great.
