Knives Out character posters: Nothing brings a family together like murder
Rian Johnson has revealed 11 new Knives Out character posters for the filmmaker’s upcoming original modern-day whodunnit movie. You can check out all of the posters now in the gallery below!
From Johnson’s character posters, Christopher Plummer is Harlan Thrombey, the world’s most successful mystery writer and the patriarch of this whole insidious clan. When he turns up dead under mysterious circumstances, the game is afoot…
LaKeith Stanfield is Detective Elliott, the cool-headed local police detective who is ready to rule Harlan’s death a suicide. But when the clues and motives start to surface, he’s suddenly not so certain.
Ana de Armas is Marta Cabrera, Harlan’s devoted caregiver. She was closest to Harlan and has some secrets of her own to keep. Are they secrets worth killing for?
Michael Shannon is Walt Thrombey, Harlan’s youngest son. Walt runs the family publishing company, but his ambitions reach much farther. Would he kill for them?
Jaeden Martell is Walt’s son, who spends every moment of the day on his phone. Could he have trolled his way into murder?
Toni Collette is Joni Thrombey, Harlan’s daughter-in-law. She’s made a killing with her lifestyle brand Flam, but if she was desperate enough, would she stop there?
Katherine Langford is Meg Thrombey, Joni’s daughter, who is well studied at the best liberal arts colleges in New England. But could her syllabus have included cutlery skills?
Jamie Lee Curtis is Linda Thrombey, Harlan’s eldest daughter. She has a head for business, but does she have a heart for homicide?
Don Johnson is Richard Thrombey, Linda’s husband. When his indiscretions catch up with him, who knows how far he’ll go to conceal the truth…
Chris Evans is Ransom Thrombey, Richard and Linda’s son. Born with a honeyed but forked tongue and a silver spoon in his mouth, a knife would complete the set.
Daniel Craig is Benoit Blanc, a gentlemen sleuth of great renown. Summoned to this nest of iniquity by mysterious means, it falls to the great detective to solve the case before the murderer strikes again.
Actress Jamie Lee Curtis explained that “the film centers on a detective (Daniel Craig) investigating a murder when he comes across an eccentric, combative family.” She also noted the family gathering setting “turns bloody very quickly. These people put the ‘dis’ in dysfunctional, which should play very well this Thanksgiving weekend.”
During Lionsgate’s presentation, Johnson revealed that he is a die-hard Agatha Christie fan and that Knives Out was an attempt to take all the aspects he loved about the famed writer, “jam it into an all-star cast, give it a Hitchcock thriller, genre twist and set it in modern-day America.”
The all-star ensemble cast of Knives Out includes Daniel Craig (Spectre), along with Chris Evans (Avengers: Infinity War), Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049), Michael Shannon (The Shape of Water), LaKeith Stanfield (Sorry To Bother You), Don Johnson (Book Club), Toni Collette (Hereditary), Christopher Plummer (Beginners), Katherine Langford (Love, Simon), Riki Lindhome (Kidding), Edi Patterson (The Last O.G.), Raúl Castillo (Atypical), and Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween).
The film will be released on November 27.
