Woah, this one came out of nowhere! Knives Out is from Director Rian Johnson – who you’ll know for Brick, Looper and Star Wars: The Last Jedi – but is an absolutely welcome throwback to the classic murder mystery whodunit with all the hallmarks of Agatha Christie… and it’s a trailer you have to watch. First up, an official synopsis and then watch the trailer below!
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 will keep you guessing ’til the very end!
