First Trailer for Rian Johnson’s Star-Studded Whodunit, Knives Out, Has Arrived

Get ready for an old-school murder mystery with just about every major actor you love as the first trailer for Rian Johnson’s Knives Out has dropped.

This is one trailer I’ve been eager to get my eyeballs on for a while now. Johnson has assembled a cast for the ages and thrown them all together in a new whodunit escapade:

This is just a gorgeous trailer and highlights the strength of the cast while doing an excellent job of selling the mystery/story being told. If I wasn’t already on the hype train, this trailer would certainly do the trick. What do you think?

Acclaimed writer and director Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper, The Last Jedi) pays tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie in KNIVES OUT, a fun, modern-day murder mystery where everyone is a suspect. 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.

Knives Out hits theaters on November 17, 2019.
