Johnny Depp’s role in ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ inspires joy when fans realize he dies in it
The trailer for Murder on the Orient Express Train debuted Thursday, and it didn’t take long for the internet to flood it with reactions about the upcoming film that hits theaters in November.
While some viewers expressed their excitement over the making of the 1934 novel into a movie, others complained about the Imagine Dragons track accompanying the trailer. Most of all, viewers had some comments about a particular cast member.

The film producers packed the movie with an all-star cast that includes Daisy Ridley, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, Penélope Cruz, Josh Gad, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Lucy Boynton, Olivia Colman, and Kenneth Branagh. To the dismay of many, however, the film also stars Johnny Depp.
Depp dropped from fan favoritism in the wake of his divorce with Amber Heard, who claimed that Depp suffered from substance abuse issues and physically injured her while under the influence, according to court filings. Since their divorce, movie viewers have protested Depp’s acting endeavors—including his appearance in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
The case was no different following the debut of the Express Train trailer. Users on Twitter found a bright side, however—at least Depp’s character gets murdered.

Express Train depicts a train ride through Europe that turns into a “race against time to solve a murder aboard a train,” according to the movie’s official description. Detective Hercule tries to solve the murder before another rider dies, and investigates 13 strangers to find the killer. Check out the trailer below.
