A Haunting in Venice, the thriller based on the 1969 Agatha Christie Hallowe’en Party novel, will be released on  Blu-ray Disc and DVD from Disney-owned 20th Century Studios. A Haunting in Venice is set in eerie, post-World War II Venice on All Hallows’ Eve and features the return of the celebrated sleuth, Hercule Poirot, played by Kenneth Branagh, who also produced and directed. Now retired and living in self-imposed exile, Poirot reluctantly attends a séance at a decaying, haunted palazzo. When one of the guests is murdered, the detective is thrust into a sinister world of shadows and secrets. A Haunting in Venice is the third film in Branagh’s “Poirot” trilogy, which also includes 2017’s Murder on the Orient Express and 2022’s Death on the Nile. Branagh stars alongside an ensemble cast that includes Kyle Allen, Camille Cottin, Jamie Dornan, Tina Fey, Jude Hill, Ali Khan, Emma Laird, Kelly Reilly, Riccardo Scamarcio and Michelle Yeoh. It grossed more than $42.47 million at the domestic box office.

The film from China includes cutting-edge sword choreography. Written and directed by Bingjia Yang (Fight Against Evil 2), the film stars Xie Miao (Ip Man: The Awakening, The New Legend of Shaolin), newcomer Gao Yi, Zhang Haosen (“Fight Against Evil” franchise), Gao Weiman (Tang Men), Xiang Hao (“A Round Trip to Love” franchise), Liu Ben (Animal World), and Zhang Di (The Warrior From Sky).
