‘Death on the Nile’, classier mystery

VOD news offers you the best releases of the week on Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+… And the week promises to be calm, even if the death on the nile. Nonsense aside, it’s the best thing you can see on your screen, but not the only thing, so take note of the following…

With very little material, including the release of movies counted as the same death on the nileDisney+ has been at the top of the chart for several non-consecutive weeks now, and it’s better to have a little but hey…

death on the nile* is the latest adaptation of Agatha Chistie’s classic to the big screen, following the 70s version and the most recent starring the definitive Hercule Poirot, the great David Suchet. And although in this new version of death on the nile There’s no Suchet, there’s Kenneth Branagh as the Belgian detective and behind the scenes, just like he did in Murder on the Orient Express; and, put to rest, Branagh is the best possible replacement.

So, death on the nile would be a continuation of Murder on the Orient Express and from what is said, there will be a third film to close the trilogy of this mysterious classic. Whatever, death on the nile came out this year and is the one ringing now, with names like the aforementioned Branagh, Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Letitia Wright (Black Panther) or Annette Bening (american beauty), so take advantage of it if you’re a Disney+ subscriber and haven’t seen it in theaters.

We continue with HBO Max, which brings a good bunch of premieres to its credit this week. Original or exclusive releases, that is, among which we highlight…

Deputy Tokyo. Does the title mean anything to you? Not so fast… because yes, but no. Or in other words, that miniseries whose hook is based on the true story that gave rise to the novel and whose hook is to have Michael Mann (Heat, Collateral) in the production and directing of the first chapter, seems to have enough of its own entity to have entered fairly well among specialist critics.
