After the success of Dunkirk, Kenneth Branagh returns to Chinese cinemas with a remake of an Agatha Christie classic. Xu Fan reports.

Chinese viewers who struggle to remember foreign faces may find it difficult to accept that Commander Bolton in Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is returning to the country's big screen in Murder on the Orient Express.

That's because this time, the actor who played Bolton sports an enormous moustache and speaks English with a heavy Belgian accent in his portrayal of the famous fictional detective, the creation of Agatha Christie, the prolific British writer dubbed the "Queen of Crime".
