Talented story spinner Rian Johnson is back, and this time he’s bringing a twisted mystery to the big screen that will take audiences from A to Z and then back again with Knives Out and it’s sure to be a riveting watch.
Check out the suspenseful new trailer below:
Here’s the full synopsis:
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.
A clever detective, a deceitful family and a murder most foul. Sounds like the perfect setting for the ultimate mystery and that’s exactly where we’re heading here in Knives Out, Rian Johnson’s throwback to the good ol’ days of the murder mystery and this one will surely keep you entertained.
Daniel Craig leads a large ensemble cast here as ace private detective Benoit Blanc. Smart, calculating and factually orientated, Craig’s Blanc is a great new turn for Craig and he’s really putting his own spin on the character, as he finds himself embroiled in a family mystery that soon turns deadly.
Joining Craig is an extremely talented supporting cast including the likes of Jamie Lee Curtis, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette and Christopher Plumme and each of them has plenty of secrets that they’re trying to hide.
The new trailer gives a great snapshot of the direction in which the movie is going, and these twists and turns don’t stop for a moment. Everyone is a suspect and as the truth draws closer to Blanc, things certainly get a lot more murderous in this household.
Hold your breath and prepare to keep guessing because things are about to get very interesting when Knives Out arrives in cinemas on November 28.
