Knives Out trailer

Rian Johnson’s first movie after directing and writing Star Wars: The Last Jedi looks to be a classic whodunit story. But a new trailer for the movie, Knives Out, proves to be something more than a typical Agatha Christie film.

The official synopsis for the film reads: 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.

The trailer is so quirky that it is compelling and hilarious and the film’s real selling point is the cast, which includes Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, Katherine Langford, Noah Segan, Edi Patterson, Riki Lindhome, Jaeden Martell, and Christopher Plummer alongside Daniel Craig. It does not give much away, but seems to be fascinating and engaging.
