Hollywood releases, on average, over 730 films each year – a massive selection for movie lovers to choose from, except when one gets released with an all-star heavyweight cast.
KNIVES OUT, the latest production from Lionsgate, is now at cinemas nationwide and promises to deliver legendary performances from cast members that have defined the movie-making industry.
Certified as ‘fresh’, “Knives Out sharpens old murder-mystery tropes with a keenly assembled suspense outing that makes brilliant use of writer-director Rian Johnson's stellar ensemble” - Rotten Tomatoes, the most trusted measurement of quality for movies.
When renowned, well-off crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is announced dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday party - which he celebrated with the entire Thrombey family - the suave Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) mysteriously arrives to investigate the series of events that lead to the death of Harlan.
You are introduced to Harlan’s dysfunctional family members one by one, while Blanc sifts through a web of their narcissistic lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan’s suspicious death.
With an all-star ensemble cast including Chris Evans; Daniel Craig; Christopher Plummer; Ana De Armas; Jamie Lee Curtis; Don Johnson; Michael Shannon; Toni Collette; LaKeith Stanfield; Katherine Langford and Jaeden Martell, KNIVES OUT is a witty whodunit film which guarantees to keep audiences guessing until the very end.
"You know, my motto is 'Excelsior.' That's an old word that means 'upward and onward to greater glory.' It's on the seal of the state of New York. Keep moving forward, and if it's time to go, it's time. Nothing lasts forever." – Stan Lee.
He is Marvel, the one and only writer, editor and publisher of Marvel - Stan Lee "The Man" booked his ticket to meet the stars, and we say it with joy in our hearts and a smirk on our faces that he will be missed, but his life was well lived and he sure did make ours a fantasy-filled life. We thank him for allowing us to explore his imagination and existing the many worlds he created. At the age of 95 Lee tipped his hat and took off his glasses to bid this universe good bye.
He died at Cedar Sinati Medical Center in Los Angeles - California on November the 12th, 2018. He was reportedly rushed to the medical emergency earlier in the day. He later passed on after losing the fight to pneumonia. The whole world still mourns his death and we at Joburg.co.za are just as touched, but we know that his legacy will live on.
He did indeed provide us with a perfect form of escapism allowing our imaginations to exist in worlds unheard of. But because of him we live to say, it's okay to dream! His death was also met with a wave of tributes, including Marvel stars and friends Robert Downey Junior, Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Tom Holland, Mark Ruffalo, Jennifer Lawrence, Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and many more.
Rest Easy Legend!
