The murder mystery movie “ KNIVES OUT ” was a hit of the year 2019 because of its fascinating plot. The murder mystery is a genre that hardly lets anyone feel bored. The suspense of getting the culprit revealed is no less than the ecstasy of solving a labyrinth for the viewers.

The storyline of the KNIVES OUT was based on solving the death case of the novelist Harlan Thrombey (the character played by Christopher Plummer) by the detective Benoit Blanc (the character played by Daniel Craig).

But the plot of the sequel is going to be different from the KNIVES OUT. However, Daniel Craig will be back in action playing the role of detective Benoit Blanc once again. KNIVES OUT 2 will present a new mystery case; the storyline will no more continue to revolve around the Thrombey family.

KNIVES OUT, with its success last year, put a challenge to its own coming sequel. The movie was praised by all and bagged many awards too. Fans are waiting for a more interesting plot this time. Hope Rian Johnson will not let down his fans.
