A murder mystery is hitting theaters for Thanksgiving – and it has a lot of your faves in it. Knives Out’s new trailer gives fans a little more insight into the whodunit whirlwind and it’s a lot of fun. The Rian Johnson film has an impressive ensemble cast including Daniel Craig, Chris Evan, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lakeith Stanfield, Ana de Arma, Michael Shannon, Katherine Langford, Toni Collette, Don Johnson, Jaeden Martell, and Christopher Plummer. So, ya know, it might be of interest to a whole lot of people.
In the latest Knives Out clip, two investigators (Craig and Stanfield) pull up on the scene of a grandiose house where a prolific writer died shortly after his birthday celebration. They believe that his death was not self-inflicted, but rather a murder by someone close to him who attended that fateful party.
As expected, there are several wacky characters who all seem suspicious – a grandfather who skipped out on the funeral but is ready for the will reading, a potentially disgruntled employee, a posh daughter who doesn’t want the law meddling in her family affairs, and a group of people who are all lying about something. Everyone has a motive and they are all very willing to point the finger at each other. The trailer blends humor, suspense, and a ton of tension together pretty much perfectly, which isn’t surprising considering the actors involved in this project.
Knives Out will certainly have its share of twists and turns as the audience tries to piece together clues to figure out this looming mystery. Who is the guilty person behind it all? Or, is there more to this mystery than meets the eye? Get ready to see who pulls the knives out when this movie hits theaters just in time for some Thanksgiving Day entertainment.
