Knives Out

Knives Out
Director: Rian Johnson
Writer: Rian Johnson
Cast: Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Lakeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell, Christopher Plummer
Distributor: Lionsgate
Rated PG-13 | Minutes: 130
Release Date: November 27, 2019

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.

Watchmen TV Series

There are the superheroes that we enjoy seeing in movie theaters, then there’s the Watchmen. A stark difference in terms of themes and tone, HBO’s upcoming series will take a look at the world of superheroes, particularly those who hide behind a mask and how the general public views them. From Damon Lindelof (Lost, The Leftovers), the series will take Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ iconic comic book series and weave in timely social issues that affect us today.

Check out the new Watchmen featurette here below.

HBO’s ‘Watchmen’ Trailer: Counting Down To The End Of The World

HBO's Watchmen

Damon Lindelof‘s vision of Watchmen, which will appear on HBO, will not be like the traditional comic book adaptations we are accustomed to seeing. Instead, the series will have a modern day spin on the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons comic, which focused on themes of time, patriotism, lies and deceit, and modernization. So while it won’t be a direct adaptation, it looks like some of those themes will carry over into the show, which we still know very little about.

HBO has released a new trailer that should give us a slight idea of what to expect. Check it out below.

Jamie Lee Curtis Joins Knives Out

Rian Johnson‘s latest feature Knives Out will be his follow-up directorial effort after Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Daniel Craig was one of the first to join the film, which is being described as a mystery thriller. That was followed up with Chris Evans, Lakeith Stanfield, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, and Ana de Armas joining the cast.

Now you can add another actress to the cast. And this one has had a few run-ins with knife-wielding people herself. New reports say Jamie Lee Curtis has joined the cast. More on the report below.

HBO hasn’t ordered Damon Lindelof‘s TV show adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons‘ comic Watchmen to series yet, but they have ordered a pilot episode to aid them in making a decision. And the cast for that pilot episode just added a big name.

It’s being reported that Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons has signed on for the pilot, which would be only the second major TV role for the actor should HBO order it to series. The other being The Borgias.

Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events

Netflix is continuing to show off its series adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events starring Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf.

We first saw a teaser featuring Snicket, the pen name of the author of the books the series is based on, Daniel Handler, who’s played on the show by Patrick Warburton. Then came a teaser trailer introducing Harris’s version of the Olaf character, a tough role to take on after Jim Carrey famously played him in the 2004 feature film adaptation. More recently Netflix has gotten to the good stuff, releasing a full trailer last month and now a second full trailer today. You can watch both of the full trailers below.
