It’s without question that I love sharing the trailers for upcoming films here and that notion is ramped up to different levels when there is a star-studded ensemble cast involved. While we at first aim to please our readership, these trailer posts are also responsible for some wonderful Google searching which is always a good thing. This new Lionsgate Films release “Knives Out” seems interesting but you can find out for yourself with the first Official Trailer. I’ll come back at the close with some editorial notions.
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: This intrigued me and while a mystery film there looks to be a lot of tongue in cheek humor involved as well. I like a lot of the actors involved so it will be interesting to see them outside of the areas that I know them best from. Based on said cast I will be keeping an eye on this one here at “The Chronicles” because I try to stick with only a few forms of film over on PiercingMetal (superhero, horror and select science fiction). Feel free to let me know down below in the comments with what you thought about this one and I shall see you next time around.
