Have you seen Knives Out yet? If the answer is no, my knee-jerk response might be, “What are you waiting for?” But at this point, I wouldn’t blame you for holding off until Monday, December 2nd at 5pm because that’s when Collider will host a very special screening of the film as part of the Collider FYC Screening Series at ArcLight Hollywood. And even if you have seen the movie, it’s well worth adding the event to your calendar for two reasons: first, as you well know if you’ve seen it, Knives Out is a movie that’s well worth multiple viewings and, two, we’ll have writer-director Rian Johnson on hand for a post-screening Q&A moderated by For Your Consideration host Scott Mantz. If you want to get your hands on some tickets, you can do so right here.
Knives Out is a whodunnit that focuses on the Thrombey family. When the Thrombey patriarch, Harlan (Christopher Plummer), is found dead in his mansion on his 85th birthday, Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is called in to figure out who murdered the famed crime novelist. The chief suspects in the case? Harlan’s very own family, all hoping to make off with a chunk of his wealth. The epic ensemble also includes Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, LaKeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford and Jaeden Martell.
Again, click here for Knives Out tickets, and if you don’t live near the ArcLight Hollywood, fear not because highlights from the post-screening Q&A with Johnson will be featured in a future episode of Collider FYC on the Collider Video YouTube channel. Stay tuned to Collider.com for announcements about future films participating in the FYC Screening Series, and be sure to watch the most recent Collider FYC episode covering the Best Actress race right here.
