The first Knives Out trailer has arrived, and it’s time to get out your celebrity actor bingo cards.
Rian Johnson (Looper, The Last Jedi) is back with Knives Out, a modern-day murder mystery in the tone of Agatha Christie. This movies has been in the work for ages, and we imagine that came down to trying to line up all of the schedules.
This definitely has the feel of a grand murder mystery story from decades past, and we can’t wait to learn more about it.
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.
Knives Out will hit theaters on Nov. 27.
