Lionsgate’s Knives Out Partners Up with The Murder Mystery Co.

In a world of remake upon remake, it’s refreshing to see an original script.

And for us, that bonus multiplies when the movie in question is a heart-racing, clue-chasing, laugh-out-loud Whodunnit!

Knives Out, directed by Rian Johnson, is set to come out Thanksgiving Weekend 2019 and the buzz is real. You might’ve heard of writer-director Johnson, he did a little film called Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Whether you loved or hated his rendition of the sci-fi epic is no matter–his upcoming Thanksgiving thriller is already gaining traction as a must-see flick. Its early reviewers have set the movie up to sit pretty at 99% Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.

It isn’t all that surprising to see. After all, the star-studded cast wow-ed us from the first trailer.

Not many story details have been released, apart from the main plot points: When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey is found dead at his estate just before his 85th birthday, his family enlists a sleuth to look into the circumstances of his passing.

Daniel Craig plays Detective Benoit Blanc. The roster of his suspects includes characters played by Chris Evans, Ana De Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collete, Lakeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell, and Christopher Plummer.

If this cast wasn’t enough to pique your interest, the Massachusetts setting, soaked in autumnal colors, looks absolutely brilliant and feels “at home” this time of year. 

Though it is far from being a stale take on the murder mystery trope, it still stays true to its Agatha Christie roots by featuring a dysfunctional family, red herrings to chase, puzzles to solve, and laugh-out-loud moments.
