Lionsgate has finally unleashed the first trailer for Rian Johnson’s latest feature film titled Knives Out. After tackling the Star Wars universe with Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Johnson has decided to tackle a crime thriller.
Starring Daniel Craig as Detective Benoit Blanc, the film is a murder mystery homage to the works of Agatha Christie with a whodunnit. The rest of the cast includes Chris Evans (Avengers: Endgame, Snowpiercer), Ana De Armas (Blade Runner 2049), Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween), Don Johnson (Django Unchained), Michael Shannon, Toni Collette (Hereditary), LaKeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, and Jaeden Martell.
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.
KNIVES OUT is a witty and stylish whodunit guaranteed to keep audiences guessing until the very end.
Daniel is currently shooting Bond 25 in the United Kingdom and Rian Johnson is still prepping his new Star Wars trilogy for Lucasfilm.
Lionsgate has set the release of Knives Out for November 27th.
