When I ran the first Official Trailer for the upcoming Lionsgate Films release “Knives Out” (seen HERE), I had to admit that I was hoping for another clip soon because such an ensemble cast really brings out the Google searching and quite honestly, the first one got me really curious about the film. Now we’ve got a second trailer and you can enjoy it down below. I’ve also embedded the premise and that aforementioned star-studded cast before my closing notes. Let’s go.
Wealthy crime novelist Harlan Thrombey invites his family to his mansion for his 85th birthday party. The next morning, Harlan’s housekeeper Fran finds him dead, with his throat slit. The police believe it was suicide, but an anonymous party pays private detective Benoit Blanc to investigate.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: For me this trailer was a whole lot more enjoyable than the previous one and depending on any future reveals, might just find me sitting in the theater when it opens up around Thanksgiving. For me the paramount thing to do around that time is spend it with family so who knows if I will be free but let’s see. What I took from this new clip was that a lot of twists and turns are involved and since I used to enjoy the ”Sherlock Holmes” show with Benedict Cumberbatch and some of those Hercule Poirot movies, this might be right up my alley. After all, one cannot only go to see superhero films all the time. What about you readers? Did you like this latest trailer? Chime in down below and know that I will be sticking around on it for good measure. See you next time and thanks for spending some time with “The Chronicles” of Piercing Ken.
