Rian Johnson‘s Knives Out is a deliciously twisted whodunit murder mystery in the same vein of an Agatha Christie novel, but with a modern touch. Though it does rely on many of those Christie tropes of a detective warning the audience about foul play, marking everyone as a suspect, and deliberately setting up all of the clues in plain sight. And true to form, though the film holds the audience’s attention by giving them a well-crafted intrigue that is set up by Johnson, the political subtext allows it to be much more than just a simple murder mystery. And it is able to stay constantly entertaining as it is full of unlikeable and very suspect characters, who are wonderfully played by an all-star cast, that not only keeps things funny, but will also have us guessing until the very end. My full review below.

News of Mark Wahlbergtaking a $1.5 million paycheck for his reshoots on Ridley Scott‘s All the Money in the World came as a shock to many, especially when his co-star Michelle Williams was only paid 1% of that. Details of the staggering wage gap only got darker when it was reported that Wahlberg would only approve of Christopher Plummer, who was to be Kevin Spacey‘s replacement, if he got paid a large sum of money. It was a polarizing subject, with some saying Wahlberg was greedy, while others criticized Williams for not asking enough. To make matters worse, both are represented by the same agency, WME.
However, in order to quell an already volatile situation, Wahlberg has donated his $1.5 million paycheck to the Time’s Up movement. Plus, Williams has released a statement responding to the donation. More on the story below.
After Kevin Spacey was accused of sexual assault last year, the actor was taken off numerous projects from his Master Class to House of Cards. But the one move that made shockwaves was when Ridley Scott decided to reshoot all of Spacey’s scenes in All the Money in the World and replace him with Christopher Plummer. It was a daunting task. And one that proved to be costly. But the film ended up being recognized by many for Scott’s ability to complete the reshoots in nine to ten days, and still release the film on its original release date.
The reshoots were only one part of the story, however. It’s how much the film’s co-stars were paid that is making headlines now. According to various reports, the pay between Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg was staggeringly different. The former was only paid a mere $80 dollars per day, while the latter took home a near $2 million paycheck. More on this story below.
