Oh, boy. Here we go. Ever since Rian Johnson released Star Wars: The Last Jedi, he’s become something of a target for many fans. After diving headfirst into the pit of one of the most unforgiving fandom, would he be able to go back and reclaim his identity as a mystery and noir director? That was the big question. When we first heard news about his new film Knives Out, it sounded promising.
In addition to pitching itself as a murder mystery whodunnit, it also featured an ensemble cast that would be the envy of any director, as it includes the likes of Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, and Jamie Lee Curtis, among many others. Check out the trailer below!
Below is the official synopsis for Knives Out:
“Acclaimed writer and director Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper, The Last Jedi) pays tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie in KNIVES OUT, a fun, modern-day murder mystery where everyone is a suspect. 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. With an all-star ensemble cast including Chris Evans, Ana De Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, Toni Collette, LaKeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford and Jaeden Martell, KNIVES OUT is a witty and stylish whodunit guaranteed to keep audiences guessing until the very end.”
