20th Century Studios has released the chilling new teaser trailer and poster for the unsettling supernatural thriller, A HAUNTING IN VENICE, the anticipated third film in Oscar® winner Kenneth Branagh‘s Poirot film series based on the novel “Hallowe’en Party” by Agatha Christie, which will open in cinemas nationwide on 15 September 2023.
The new trailer screened for convention attendees at the 2023 CinemaCon Convention in Las Vegas earlier today.
The ensemble cast also includes: Kyle Allen, Camille Cottin, Jamie Dornan, Tina Fey, Jude Hill, Ali Khan, Emma Laird, Kelly Reilly, Riccardo Scamarcio, and recent Academy Award-winner Michelle Yeoh.
In addition, Branagh announced that acclaimed Icelandic composer Hildur Guđnadóttir, who won an Oscar, Golden Globe®, GRAMMY®, and BAFTA for Joker, an Emmy® and GRAMMY for Chernobyl, and who most recently scored Tar and Women Talking, will compose the score.
A HAUNTING IN VENICE is set in eerie, post-World War II Venice on All Hallows’ Eve and is a terrifying mystery featuring the return of the celebrated sleuth, Hercule Poirot. Now retired and living in self-imposed exile in the world’s most glamorous city, Poirot reluctantly attends a séance at a decaying, haunted palazzo. When one of the guests is murdered, the detective is thrust into a sinister world of shadows and secrets.
Reuniting many of the filmmakers behind 2017’s “Murder on the Orient Express” and 2022’s “Death on the Nile,” the film is directed by Kenneth Branagh with a screenplay by Oscar® nominee Michael Green (“Logan”) based upon Agatha Christie’s novel Hallowe’en Party.
The producers are Kenneth Branagh, Judy Hofflund, Ridley Scott, and Simon Kinberg, with Louise Killin, James Prichard, and Mark Gordon serving as executive producers.
