‘Knives Out’ Trailer Featuring Daniel Craig Scores 99% on Rotten Tomatoes

It doesn’t come out until the end of the month but somehow Knives Out is gonna be so good that people and pundits just know. It’s already managed to score itself a cool 99% on Rotten Tomatoes.

If I was someone who spent their days publishing unsubstantiated reviews online (wait, maybe that’s what I’m doing right now…), I think I’d think that 99% is a fairly fair valuation of this movie. The trailer itself declares Knives Out to be “the most entertaining film of the year” – and to be honest, it does look pretty bloody entertaining.

The film follows Detective Benoit Blanc, played by Daniel Craig, as he investigates the sudden death of a wealthy crime novelist. From there it descends into rib-tickling madness as Craig encounters and unveils the deceased novelist’s dysfunctional family, along with their web of upper-echelon lies and scandals. The flick is a tribute to Agatha Christies mid-20th century murder mystery classics, with a modern-day twist.

Along with Bond, James, it’ll include the likes of Chris Evans, Michael Shannon, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Lakeith Stanfield, Don Johnson, and Katherine Langford. All-star alert…

There’s only one bad part about the Knives Out trailer; and that is that it’s not in cinemas until 27 November 2019. Which, scientifically speaking, is too damn long.
