The plot of “The Thursday Murder Club” is about a cosy retirement home where life seems pretty chill until a group of friends decides to spice things up by solving murders for kicks. You’ve got Helen Mirren as Elizabeth, an ex-spy with a knack for espionage; Sir Ben Kingsley as Ibrahim, a retired psychiatrist who can read minds better than a detective; and Pierce Brosnan as Ron, a former union activist with a nose for uncovering secrets.

But here’s the twist: what starts as a harmless hobby turns deadly when they stumble upon a real-life murder case right in their own backyard. Suddenly, they’re not just playing detective for fun—they’re in the thick of a dangerous mystery, where every clue could be a matter of life or death.

As they delve deeper into the investigation, our unlikely trio uncovers a web of secrets, lies, and long-buried betrayals. With danger lurking around every corner, they’ll have to rely on their wits, their friendship, and maybe a few old spy tricks to crack the case before it’s too late.

In “The Thursday Murder Club,” get ready to see some acting legends in action! First up, we’ve got Helen Mirren stepping into the role of Elizabeth. You might know her as Queen Elizabeth II from “The Queen,” or perhaps as the sharp-witted DCI Jane Tennison from “Prime Suspect.” This marks her first Netflix film, so you know it’s gonna be something special.

Next on the list, we’ve got Pierce Brosnan taking on the character of Ron. Now, you might recognize him as the suave James Bond from four action-packed films. But hey, Brosnan’s got range—he recently brought the laughs in the Netflix comedy “The Out-Laws” and charmed us all in “Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga.”

Last but certainly not least, we’ve got Sir Ben Kingsley bringing Ibrahim to life. You know him as the Academy Award-winning actor behind Mahatma Gandhi, and Marvel fans might remember him as the tricky Trevor Slattery in “Iron Man 3.” Recently, he wowed audiences in the Wes Anderson-directed Netflix short film “The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar.”

With this powerhouse trio leading the way, “The Thursday Murder Club” is shaping up to be one star-studded mystery you won’t want to miss!
