Paying tribute to Agatha Christie, it stars Daniel Craig in the lead role as Benoit Blanc, a detective who’s investigating the murder of renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey. Found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, Detective Blanc quickly begins sifting through Thrombey’s dysfunctional family and devoted staff in an effort to uncover the truth behind untimely death.
Co-stars include Chris Evans, Ana De Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, Toni Collette, LaKeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford and Jaeden Martell. “Knives Out is a witty and stylish whodunit guaranteed to keep audiences guessing until the very end,” reads the synopsis.
