Writer-director Rian Johnson is taking inspiration from Agatha Christie with his upcoming whodunnit “Knives Out,” and as its new trailer suggests, the queen of mystery would be pleased.

To be released Nov. 27 by Lionsgate, the mystery film will surely be on awards voters’ radars due to its almost-blinding star power; Daniel Craig plays a Southern detective investigating the murder of a renowned crime author played by Christopher Plummer, whose extended family of suspects includes Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Toni Collette, Lakeith Stanfield, Don Johnson, Jaeden Martell, Katherine Langford, and more.

Suspense! Stars! Suspiciously raised eyebrows! Check out the “Knives Out” trailer below.
