An all-star ensemble cast will feature in a whodunit murder mystery, and Mercury readers could win tickets to the action.

Knives Out was released in cinemas yesterday (Wednesday).

Acclaimed writer and director Rian Johnson, of Looper and Star Wars: The Last Jedi fame, pays tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie in his latest film.

Knives Out is a fun, modern-day murder mystery where everyone is a suspect.

When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey, played by Christopher Plummer, is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate.

From Thrombey's dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan's untimely death.

The all-star ensemble cast also includes Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Michael Shannon, LaKeith Stanfield and Jaeden Martell.

Director Johnson cited several classic mystery thrillers and mystery comedies as influences on the film, including The Last Of Sheila, Murder On The Orient Express and Death On The Nile.

The film had its worldwide premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September and scored rave reviews from critics.

Tickets, priced £4, are available at or on 03330 144501.
