Interview with Simon Pegg on set of Burke & Hare + Film Trailer

BURKE & HARE is a comedic take on the true story of the 1828 Edinburgh body-snatchers William Burke (Simon Pegg) and William Hare (Andy Serkis). These two Irish entrepreneurs, spurred on by a chance meeting with a gorgeous actress (Isla Fisher), discover that a dead body can fetch a hefty price when the demands of the leading medical professors Dr. Knox (Tom Wilkinson) and Dr. Monroe (Tim Curry) reach beyond that of the local supply.

From AMZN:

Murder on the Orient Express — Onboard the Orient Express, an unsavory traveler (Toby Jones) requests Poirot’s protection; after the man is stabbed to death, Poirot searches for the killer on the now snowbound train. The star-studded cast includes Barbara Hershey, Hugh Bonneville, and Dame Eileen Atkins.

Third Girl — Poirot collaborates with crime novelist Ariadne Oliver (Zoë Wanamaker) to help a young heiress who thinks she may have committed a murder. When the woman’s childhood nanny is found dead, Poirot believes he has the victim–but he still has a long list of suspects. Peter Bowles and James Wilby guest star.

Appointment with Death–Hercule Poirot is visiting an archaeological dig in the Syrian Desert when the wife of Lord Boynton (Tim Curry) is murdered. Poirot carefully sorts through the woman’s many enemies to unearth the truth about her death. Also starring John Hannah and Elizabeth McGovern.

Edward Gorey’s theme is like Pavlov’s bell for fabulous television..

Mystery – Agatha Christie: Poirot – Appointment with Death (David Suchet)…

CoStarring Tim Curry, Elizabeth McGovern, John Hannah…Be warned I see comments that this diverges from the novel!!! (I love Piper Laurie and Lauren Bacall but that Ustinov version of this book needed a make over, YARM that I love okay I confess,  I am glad to see Suchet take it on with ITV!!!)…
