Here's how to watch Death on the Nile. This is the latest film centering around Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot, based on the 1937 novel of the same name by Agatha Christie. Kenneth Branagh directs and stars as the lead character, and is joined by an all-star cast to bring this iconic murder mystery to life.

Tom Bateman, Annette Bening, Russell Brand, Dawn French, Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer and Jennifer Saunders are among those starring opposite Kenneth Branagh in the adaptation and one of the characters in the ensemble cast is guilty of murder. But who?

It joins a great list of new films in 2022, following the passengers on board the S.S. Karnak when their peace and tranquility is shattered after one of them is found murdered. But Poirot is on the case, ready to figure out who the killer is before they strike again.

The film (check out our Death on the Nile review) was actually meant to come out much earlier, but alongside Free Guy, it was delayed. Now, as many projects have now been released following complications caused by global lockdowns, it's finally available to watch.

If you're interested in checking out the film and following along to see if you can work out who the murder is, we've put together all the places you can currently watch Death on the Nile. We will update this if any new methods are added, so watch this space.
