KNIVES OUT, the latest production from Lionsgate will be in cinemas on 29 November and promises to deliver legendary performances from cast members that have defined the movie-making industry.

Storyline

When renowned, well-off crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is announced dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday party, which he celebrated with the entire Thrombey family, the suave Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) mysteriously arrives to investigate the series of events that lead to the death of Harlan.

You are introduced to Harlan’s dysfunctional family members one by one while Blanc sifts through a web of their narcissistic lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan’s suspicious death.

With an all-star ensemble cast including 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 whodunit film which guarantees to keep audiences guessing until the very end.
