About Death on the Nile (12A)

Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot's 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 Egyptian desert vistas and the majestic Giza pyramids, this tale of unbridled passion and incapacitating jealousy features a cosmopolitan group of impeccably dressed travellers, and enough wicked twists and turns to leave audiences guessing until the final, shocking denouement.


The film's "S.S. Karnak" was built in the studio parking lot. It is based on the P.S. Sudan. Agatha Christie wrote "Death On The Nile" based on a trip on the Sudan. Built in 1921, she was one of the largest river steamers in Thomas Cook's Nile fleet. The steamer spent the latter years of the 20th century laid up and in deteriorating condition until new French owners bought her in 2000 and returned her to service in 2001.
