Following on from rave reviews out of the Toronto International Film Festival, the full trailer has now arrived for “Brick,” ” Looper” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” writer/director Rian Johnson’s “Knives Out” which opens November 27th in the United States and November 28th in Australia.
Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, Katherine Langford, Lakeith Stanfield, Jaeden Martell, and Christopher Plummer star in the film which is described as a modern-day murder mystery in the classic locked room whodunit style along with Johnson’s own original voice.
Plummer plays the patriarch of a wealthy family who dies following a party and so Stanfield and Craig’s detectives have to solve the case. Johnson has said various Agatha Christie-based films serve as his big influences though reviews suggest it turns into more of a dark satire of the 1%.
