Rian Johnson has had one very impressive career. Going from Brick to The Brothers Bloom to Looper is a feat in itself. Then you throw in his work on some episodes of Breaking Bad which all lead to him landing a Star Wars film. So, yeah, The Last Jedi was divisive, but before he begins his own SW trilogy (one can only imagine what we can expect with that), he’s got a pretty slick looking murder mystery. We’ll say one thing: he’s as diversified as he is talented.
Knives Out is a witty and stylish whodunit guaranteed to keep audiences guessing until the very end. Have a look at the first official trailer, and let us know what you think!
When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan’s dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan’s untimely death.
Starring Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Lakeith Stanfield, Michael Shannon, Ana de Armas, Don Johnson, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Jaeden Martell, Katherine Langford, and Christopher Plummer, the film is slated for release this Fall on November 27, 2019.
