Marmalade sandwiches under hat, Paddington returns with overflowing charm and invention.

Murder on the Orient Express

A stellar cast climb aboard Kenneth Branagh’s glossy and well-paced whodunit Murder on the Orient Express. Does it matter if the thrills have gone off the rails?

Kingsman: The Golden Circle
