Money problems, affairs, and costly professional conflicts are but a few of the seedy secrets set to rise to the surface as the infamous Blanc begins to shake the fragile branches of the family tree.
With such a twisted web to untangle, a cast offering serious strength in numbers, and a script concocted with equal measures of menace and wit, expect to find yourself on edge all the way up until Knives Out’s big reveal.
A Mysterious Past
Before Rian Johnson revealed the fate of The Last Jedi, he was no stranger to mystery.
A slick slice of neo-noir starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Riddled with secrecy and set against the backdrop of a California high school, Brick’s sombre and otherworldly narrative established Johnson as one of cinema’s most exciting up-and-coming voices.
The Brothers Bloom (2008)
Adrian Brody, Mark Ruffalo, and Rachel Weisz teamed up for a criminally underrated crime caper following a pair of con men and their hapless attempts to turn their backs on their swindling ways.
Johnson reunited with Levitt for his sci-fi smash Looper. A thrilling, thought-provoking time-travelling flick, the picture became a critical darling and took $176.5 million at the box office – an impressive feat given it cost only $30 million to make!
