Knives Out Has European Premiere At BFI London

Knives Out premieres in Europe this October at the BFI London Film Festival, after having its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, in September.  

Knives Out, the latest film from Brick’s Rian Johnson, will have its European premiere as the American Express Gala at the BFI London Film festival this October. Knives, written and directed by Johnson, will be his first film since Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The film is a neo-noir, a “fun, modern day murder mystery,” and Johnson says, it is “an attempt to capture the twisty fun of an Agatha Christie whodunnit.” Its world premiere will take place at the Toronto Film Festival, in September.

The films stars Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana De Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Colette, Katherine Langford and Christopher Plummer and follows the fall-out from the death of “renowned crime novelist” Harlan Thrombey, played by Plummer. After Thrombey is found, everyone is a suspect, and it is up to Craig’s character, Detective Benoit Blanc, to solve the case! Craig and Ana De Armas will also appear together next year in the name-TBA twenty-fifth James Bond film. 

Of Knives Out, Tricia Tuttle, the BFI London Film Festival Director said: “With Knives Out, Rian Johnson has crafted a devilishly clever and wickedly entertaining new crime caper,” that is “as sharp as the blade that killed the patriarch at the heart of the film.” 

Compared to Star Wars, Knives Out is familiar territory for Johnson, whose directorial debut, Brick, is regarded as a cult classic of neo-noir. With blockbuster experience under his belt and this all-star cast, chances are good we may some day say the same of Knives Out.
