Daniel Craig Puzzles Out Whether Or Not Its Murder In Knives Out Trailer

Are you ready for a deliciously over the top murder mystery with Daniel Craig doing his best impression of Foghorn Leghorn?

If you are, then get ready forĀ Knives Out. The film, which was directed/written by Rian Johnson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), promises to be a fun time at the movies. From its all star cast to their over the top characters, the trailers for it have looked amazing. Given the praises of the critics who saw the film at the Toronto International Film Festival, they’re feeling the same way.

For the rest of us who have to wait, however, the latest trailer has given us the taste of the murderous fun to come.

In it, we follow Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig), a famous private investigator, who is called in over the apparent suicide of Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer), a best-selling mystery writer. But could he have been murdered instead? There’s definitely a cast of characters that could have killed the old man. We have lifestyle guru Joni (Toni Collette), Walter (Michael Shannon), eldest child Linda (Jamie Lee Curtis), Richard Drysdale (Don Johnson), the spoiled grandson Ransom (Chris Evans), the younger grandchildren Meg (Katherine Langford) and Jacob (Jaeden Martell), and, finally, Thrombey’s caregiver Marta (Ana de Armas).

All of them have a motive or a reason to see the Harlan dead. So was it murder or suicide?

Isn’t that the question.

Check out the trailer below.

Knives OutĀ will be released on Nov. 27.
