The Stars of 'Death on the Nile' Celebrate the New Movie at Private Screening

The stars of Death on the Nile are gearing up for the release of their new movie!

Actor and director Kenneth Branagh joined co-stars Tom Bateman, Ali Fazal, Dawn French, Rose Leslie, and Jennifer Saunders at a special screening and dinner celebrating their new movie on Tuesday (February 8) at The British Museum in London, England.
