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.

Star Wars Title Logo

Though Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be the final chapter of the Skywalker saga, the Star Wars hype doesn’t stop there. It will live on through new stories that will be told by The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson and Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Their new trilogies will expand the Star Wars universe in unimaginable ways. And though we know that the three are handling their own franchises, we know next to nothing about them. And probably won’t for a while since they are working on other projects – Johnson is finishing Knives Out, and Benioff and Weiss are overseeing the final season of Game of Thrones.

Luckily, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy provided some insight on what we can expect from their Star Wars projects and what it could mean for the franchise. Check out what she had to say below.

With movie sites and social media quickly reacting to the rumor, Johnson himself took to Twitter to squash the rumor and confirmed that he will be working on the trilogy as soon as he is finished working on Knives Out. More on the report below.

Russian Trolls, Bots, and Political Activists To Blame For ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Backlash According To Study

Kelly Marie Tran is Rose and John Boyega is Finn in THE LAST JEDI.

This may be a case of art imitating life. Whenever there is a Russian character in a film, chances are audiences are going to root against them considering that they almost always play a villain. But in reality, they are in the news for a variety of reasons from political interference to technological hacking.

And now it seems, at least according to a new study, they’ve gone one step further by trolling Star Wars: The Last Jedi. More on the story below.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Finn vs Captain Phasma

The joys of watching a deleted scene are imagining how it could have fit into the film in the first place. Some of the scenes are cut out because of the film’s runtime. Other times they are necessary because of pacing. So there will be plenty of time to figure out why certain scenes in Star Wars: The Last Jedi ended up on the cutting room floor.

While deleted scenes almost seem like a necessary addition to any DVD, there is one deleted scene from The Last Jedi involving Finn (John Boyega) and Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) that will have fans questioning why it was cut out and chosen over the scene that made the final theatrical cut. Check it out below, but beware of spoilers ahead.
