After ticking off “making a Star Wars movie and pissing off fanboys everywhere” from his moviemaking checklist, Rian Johnson has pulled the curtain back on his follow up film, Knives Out.
In contrast to the big budgeted Last Jedi, Knives Out is a smaller affair that’s basically a new spin on the whodunit murder mystery involving the mysterious death of a celebrated novelist. But as exciting as the premise is, the real draw of Knives Out is the absolutely stacked cast.
You’ve got Daniel Craig as the lead detective sent to solve the murder and is rocking a weird Brit-ish accent.
There’s Jamie Lee Curtis rocking a pink suit and looking like Michael from The Good Place.
And you’ve got sassy Toni Collette who is having none of whatever Daniel Craig is serving up.
But the pièce de résistance of the Knives Out trailer and perhaps the whole film is Chris Evans, who sheds his Captain America good guy persona in favour of a smarmy douchenozzle character who could make Steve Rogers weep.
Look, all you need to know is that he tells three people in succession to, ahem, “eat sh*t”, and we’re totally here for every single frame of it.
From having America’s arse to being America’s arsehole. Who would’ve thought?
Anyway, check out the entire trailer here and be supremely entertained by every single second of it, especially the dickhead Chris Evans parts.
As for when we’ll get to see Knives Out, the film comes out November 27 so we won’t have to wait too long to see Chris going all in on the weirdness by being a foul-mouthed arsehole cop who likes telling people to consume their own body waste.
