Knives Out

You'll never believe who did it! One of the best-reviewed films of 2019, "Knives Out" is coming home on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD and features one of the most amazing casts of Hollywood greats ever assembled including Daniel Craig, Chris Evans. Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Toni Collette, and more! Written and Directed by Rian Johnson, this contemporary spin on the classic murder-mystery is exactly the type of film that made going to the theater a treat!

The death of the infamously popular Harlan Thrombey (the legendary Christopher Plummer) could have been ripped from the pages of one of his own novels, but when a detective played by Daniel Craig begins to suspect that there's something more here afoot — everyone in the Thrombey Family becomes a suspect! Everyone has their own reasons for believing someone else may have had something to do with it, but does Benoit Blanc (Craig) have enough time to follow all the clues and lies and deceptions before someone in the manor gets away with murder?

Rian Johnson may have directed the most polarizing installment of the "Star Wars" film franchise, but there's no denying the writer/director has the skills and lacks any intimidation when it comes to navigating one of the most colorful casts of A-List actors in the business. Johnson also has a gift for timing and unpredictability when telling his stories. There's an uncanny and endearing playfulness he has inspired in this crew that moves the intricacies of the plot along at an engaging pace. It's just good fun!

The 4K Ultra HD presentation of the film guarantees that this is the best in-home theater experience you can have, aside from trekking down to your multiplex. The package is also loaded with a spectacular array of bonus content, including the multi-part "Making a Murder" documentary, a cast Q&A, filmmakers' commentary with additional deleted scenes. An additional featurette focuses on Rian Johnson and "Planning the Perfect Murder". All in all, "Knives Out" on home video has something for everyone.
