Analysing all 'Murder on the Orient Express' trailers

ridley_foreverridley_forever Where Mary Debenham wanted to go Investigator
Somehow in the second trailer of Murder on the Orient Express, I found Poirot reading A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens when Samuel Ratchet walks towards him, asking whether he can sit with him.
I was a bit confused at first but then I think I know why he is reading as Kenneth Braughn (actor of Hercule Poirot and director of Murder on the Orient Express) may have been reading it at that time. 
I don't know.  :/

    I think it’s a reference to Poirot’s quote : ‘I read my Dickens’.

    I think that is more likely and also these days you do find nods in Programme's and maybe Films, I watched an Episode of All Creatures Great And Small a while ago and Herriot's wife was reading a Christie book and Jessica Fletcher read one in an Episode of Murder She Wrote and that Episode was a nod to 4.50 From Paddington

    "WE DON'T NEED YOUR DICKENS!!!" Bouc shouted at Poirot. That's the exact quote.
