Murder on the Orient Express is hitting theaters in November. And what an awesome cast it has: Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, and Daisy Ridley. The movie is based on the book of the same name by Agatha Christie published in 1934. Sherlock Holmes is a fictional character created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Holmes first appeared in 1887. He was described as a “consulting detective” which we would now call a private detective. The great detective has been in over fifty short stories!
