A new trailer for director Rian Johnson‘s Knives Out has surfaced, showcasing Daniel Craig as a suave southern detective named Benoit Blanc attempting to interrogating members of a rich family who may have murdered its patriarch. After crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) dies following his 85th birthday, Blanc and his partner, Troy Archer (Lakeith Stanfield), suspect his rich and snobby family may have had something to do with it.
The film has already generated positive buzz coming out of Toronto International Film Festival, which currently holds at 98% on Rotten Tomatoes. According to Entertainment Weekly, the film is “a silly, stabby, supremely clever whodunnit that only really suffers from having too little room for each of its talented players to fully register in the film’s limited run time.”
