Knives Out (2019 Movie) Final Trailer - Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas.
Wealthy crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) invites his family to his Massachusetts mansion for his 85th birthday party. The next morning, Harlan's housekeeper Fran (Edi Patterson) finds him dead, with his throat slit. The police are convinced that Harlan's death is a suicide, but an anonymous party pays private detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) to investigate.
Blanc learns that Harlan's relationships with his family had become strained: he threatened to expose his son-in-law Richard for cheating on his wife Linda, cut off his daughter-in-law Joni's allowance for stealing from him, fired his younger son Walt (Michael Shannon) from his publishing company, and had an altercation with his black sheep grandson Ransom.
Unknown to Blanc, after the party, Harlan's nurse, Marta Cabrera (Ana de Armas), accidentally administered him an overdose of morphine instead of his usual medication and could not find the antidote, leaving Harlan minutes to live. To protect Marta, Harlan gave her instructions to create a false alibi to avoid suspicion over his death; he then slit his own throat. Marta carried out Harlan's instructions, but Harlan's elderly mother saw her and mistook her for Ransom.
Marta cannot lie without vomiting, so she gives true but incomplete answers when Blanc questions her. Blanc asks her to assist his investigation. As they search the property, Marta attempts to conceal evidence.
Harlan's will is read: he left everything to Marta, to her astonishment as well as the family's. They turn on her, but Ransom helps her escape. Ransom persuades Marta to confess to him and offers to help her in exchange for his share of the inheritance. The other Thrombeys try to persuade Marta to renounce her inheritance; Walt threatens to expose her mother as an undocumented immigrant.
