Character posters for Death on the Nile have been released, with Armie Hammer missing out on his own individual poster as he stars in his first film role since sexual assault allegations were levelled against him in March 2021.

The film was pushed back to a February 2022 release the same month, having already been delayed on more than one occasion from December 2019 due to pandemic concerns and the under-performance of Tenet at the box office.

Hammer, who denied the allegations, was seen only briefly in the film’s trailer – released in December – which saw some fans claim his scenes were ‘cut around’.

The film stars Sir Kenneth Branagh as private detective Hercule Poirot in the adaptation of the Agatha Christie novel, which he also directs, alongside Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot as Linnet Ridgeway Doyle – wife to Hammer’s character Simon Doyle.

Branagh and Gadot have individual character posters, alongside Black Panther star Letitia Wright as ‘The Manager’ Rosalie Otterbourne, Tom Bateman as ‘The Associate’ Bouc, Annette Bening as ‘The Mother’ Euphemia, Ali Fazal as ‘The Cousin’ Andrew Katchadourian and Emma Mackey as ‘The Lover’ Jacqueline de Bellefort.

The Call Me By Your Name star can still be seen on the film’s main poster though, assembled among the star-studded cast.
