The first trailer for Kenneth Branagh's chilling new movie A Haunting in Venice, featuring Jamie Dornan and Michelle Yeoh, is here.

Adapted from Agatha Christie's novel Hallowe'en Party, the film sees Branagh reprise his role as famed detective Hercule Poirot following 2022's Death on the Nile and 2017's Murder on the Orient Express.

Now retired and living in post-WWII Venice, Poirot finds himself attending a seance in Italy and being thrust into the world of the supernatural after a guest is murdered.

In the trailer, we see the group gather, with one of the attendees desperate to hear from her daughter one last time.

"If someone wants to be heard, we are here," Michelle's character says in one clip, moments before all supernatural hell breaks loose.

Several broken windows and shattered chandeliers later, we see the group are left terrified by what they've just witnessed — and seemingly haunted by the spirit of a young woman.

"Tonight, we are all afraid," Kenneth's Poirot can be seen saying as an entity appears behind him in the mirror.

"We cannot hide from our ghosts, whether they are real or not."

Jamie Dornan can be spotted early on in the trailer, but he isn't featured very prominently throughout.

Rounding out the cast of A Haunting in Venice are Camille Cottin, Kyle Allen, Tina Fey, Jude Hill, Ali Khan, Emma Laird, Kelly Reilly and Riccardo Scamarcio.

Branagh also directed the film, worked with Michael Green (Logan) on the screenplay and co-produced alongside Judy Hofflund, Ridley Scott and Simon Kinberg. Oscar-winning composer Hildur Guđnadóttir (Chernobyl, Joker, TÁR) is behind the film's soundtrack.

Branagh previously said of A Haunting in Venice: "This is a fantastic development of the character Hercule Poirot, as well as the Agatha Christie franchise.

"We are relishing the chance to deliver something truly spine-chilling for our loyal movie audiences."

A Haunting in Venice will be released in cinemas on September 15.
