I doubt the film world will ever again reach the glorious heights achieved by the cinematic masterpiece that is Clue. And that was based on a board game! But a new star-studded murder mystery movie called Knives Out looks like it might, at the very least, be a fun diversion based on Daniel Craig’s sweet tea infused Tennessee Williams meets Vampire Bill accent. According to The Verge, Daniel plays Detective Benoit Blanc in the film director Rain Johnson describes as a tribute to Agatha Christie.
There’s a lot of scenery to be chewed in Knives Out and thankfully the cast is chock full of hungry, hungry hippos. You’ve got Jamie Lee Curtis (yes!), Toni Collette (praise!), Michael Shannon (a’right!), Captain America (okurr!), Don Johnson (watch out world!) and Christopher motherfucking Plummer stealing scenes as an enigmatic oil painting. It also stars Get Out’s Lakeith Stanfield cornering the market in movies ending in “out“.
And here I thought Drogon melted the shit out of the Iron Throne in the final episode of Game Of Thrones. Maybe the remnants were a gift from David Benioff and D.B. Weiss to thank Rain for preemptively making them only the second most bitched about creators of a Star Wars trilogy.
