"Death on the Nile": Theatres IN 7OMM from 10. February 2022

The 70mm Newsletter
Written by: thewaltdisneycompany.com. Please eMail 7OMM engagements to the editor Date: 01.01.2022
From britishcinematographer.co.uk, about filming of "Orient":

...two Panaflex 65mm synch-sound cameras with a combination of System 65 lenses and Spheros. The Spheros are slightly older, from the David Lean era of 65mm. The System 65s are made for the format's resurgence in the early nineties led by Ron Howard's "Far and Away" (1992) and Ken's "Hamlet" (1996). Our film stock was a Kodak combination of 500T 5219 and 250D stock which is super fine grain. Exteriors in sunlight on 50 ASA 65mm look almost three dimensional. And 200T as well, even though we were large format we wanted to go further and do large format and fine grain film. I certainly chose lenses based on their clarity. I know many people go for a vintage look and find something a little softer. I was going for the most immersive type of analogue filmmaking I could." Haris Zambarloukos BSC GSC

"Death on the Nile" Released in Glorious 70mm

A new trailer for 20th Century Studios’ "Death on the Nile" is here. This tale of passion and jealousy, which is directed by and stars five-time Academy Award® nominee Kenneth Branagh and features an all-star ensemble cast, opens in U.S. theaters February 11, 2022.

Based on the 1937 novel by Agatha Christie, "Death on the Nile" is a daring mystery-thriller about the emotional chaos and deadly consequences triggered by obsessive love. Kenneth Branagh, back as the iconic detective Hercule Poirot, is joined by Tom Bateman, four-time Oscar® nominee Annette Bening, Russell Brand, Ali Fazal, Dawn French, Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Rose Leslie, Emma Mackey, Sophie Okonedo, Jennifer Saunders and Letitia Wright. "Death on the Nile", which reunites the filmmaking team behind 2017’s global hit "Murder on the Orient Express", is written by Michael Green, adapted from Christie’s novel, and is produced by Ridley Scott, Branagh, Judy Hofflund, and Kevin J. Walsh, with Mark Gordon, Simon Kinberg, Matthew Jenkins, James Prichard and Mathew Prichard serving as executive producers.

Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot’s Egyptian vacation aboard a glamorous river steamer turns into a terrifying search for a murderer when a picture-perfect couple’s idyllic honeymoon is tragically cut short. Set against an epic landscape of sweeping desert vistas and the majestic Giza pyramids, this dramatic tale of love gone wrong features a cosmopolitan group of impeccably dressed travelers and enough wicked twists and turns to leave audiences guessing until the final, shocking denouement.

Filmed with 65mm Panavision cameras in late 2019, "Death on the Nile" transports audiences to the 1930s, recreating many of the locations that served as inspiration for Christie’s glamorous, high society thriller.

With audiences returning to theaters, Disney has committed to an exclusive theatrical release for "Death on the Nile". 20th Century Studios production president Steve Asbell says,

“Ken’s sweeping, elegant vision for this classic story deserves to be seen on the biggest screen possible. We’re so proud of this film, our brilliant cast, and the stellar work that went into bringing Death on the Nile to screen. We know that audiences can’t wait to experience Hercule Poirot’s next adventure, and we’re thrilled to continue working with Ken as he lends his masterful storytelling vision to the newest film in this celebrated franchise.”

James Prichard, chairman and CEO of Agatha Christie Ltd., says,

“More than 100 years after the publication of Agatha Christie’s first novel, her crime fiction works remain immensely popular and continue to be discovered anew by people around the world. I’m thrilled that Disney and our partners believe in this franchise, which has helped introduce millions of new fans to Christie’s classic works. We’re honored to be in business with Disney, Ken and all who are dedicated to preserving the long legacy of these titles for future generations.”


"Death on the Nile" Reviews

The good news about Branagh’s return to the Christie whodunit library with Death on the Nile is that although it’s no less fabricated in U.K. studios, this tragical mystery tour is more transporting. Positioning glamorously attired characters against the ancient pyramids of Giza, the colossal Ramses statues of Abu Simbel, or on the sweeping decks and in the swanky art deco salons of a luxury paddleboat steamer — and shooting, like the earlier film, in sumptuous 65mm — at the very least, is easy on the eyes."

The Hollywood Reporter, 08.02.2022

"And yes, Death on the Nile is a guilty pleasure, a Jazz Age frippery, but these things do matter. They’re what audiences can’t quite put their fingers on when they know something is wrong (especially if they’re watching it in 70mm, something of a vanity for a film like this)."


"Branagh has made sure all the expected bells and whistles are provided, teaming again with many of his longtime collaborators including those who worked on his Oscar contender Belfast. There is the luscious cinematography of Haris Zambarloukos using 65MM cameras, and superb production design by Jim Clay. Paco Delgado and JobJit Singh’s gorgeous period costumes fit the bill, and the music by Patrick Doyle is right up to the usual standards of this exceptional composer."
