First Trailer For Rian Johnson's Awesome Looking Murder Mystery Film KNIVES OUT
The first trailer has been released for director Rian Johnson’s new original film Knives Out and this movie looks freakin’ awesome! I’m a big fan of Johnson’s original film projects like Brick, Looper, and The Brother’s Bloom, and this next project of his looks like it’s going to be a blast!
The film is an Agatha Christie-style whodunnit murder mystery in which a detective, played by Daniel Craig, investigates a family murder. The film has a wicked awesome ensemble cast that also includes Chris Evans, Lakeith Stanfield, Michael Shannon, Ana de Armas, Don Johnson, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, and Christopher Plummer.
The story is set in an old Victorian style mansion with several family members, who don’t like each other, gathered together to celebrate their father’s birthday, but the party comes to an end when the father is murdered. Two detectives played by Craig and Stanfield come to investigate the death and they are going to stay in the mansion until the investigation is complete. Curtis previously teased that by the end of the film, things will take a bloody turn as all family members start turning on each other.
There’s a great scene with Chris Evans in this trailer and I’m convinced he’s going to steal the show. He just plays a character unlike any kind of character he’s ever played before.
Knives Out hits theaters on November 27, 2019. Watch the trailer and let us know if this is a film that you’ll be checking out!
