''Knives Out was one of the absolute successes of 2019. And although it does not stand out too much in the ranking of the highest-grossing films of the year, its achievements are undeniable.

To begin with, its box office, which attracts attention not because of the amount raised (which also) but because of its profit margin. Around 40 million dollars of budget ended up becoming more than 300 of collection, and from there to the Oscars, with a nomination in one of the most important categories: the best original screenplay.

With this precedent, it is not surprising that Netflix has anxiously knocked on the door of Rian Johnson, director, and screenwriter of what is already the first film in a mystery saga for which the aforementioned streaming platform would have released 469 million, of which what 100 would be for your star, Daniel Craig.

This actor, who has just released 'No time to die', the last film in which we can see him in the shoes of James Bond, is more than excited about the next case of his detective, underlining that it is something very different from what that we saw in the original.

"I'm very lucky to have Rian [Johnson] in my life. He's a great writer. That script came through and I was literally like, 'Are you kidding me?' I couldn't believe he wanted me to play it. "

"We just finished the second one, literally a few weeks ago. They've completed filming in Serbia. Dare I say it's better? We'll see. I don't want to push our luck. It's different and that's what's amazing. It's still a mystery. by Benoit Blanc, but it's very different. I'm very excited, "says Craig in an interview with Empire.

The New Cast

'Knives Out' conquered thanks to the fact that all its elements were very careful and worked great, including its cast. Along with Craig, we saw Chris Evans and his knitted sweater, the new Bond girl, Ana de Armas, the screaming queen, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Michael Shannon, Toni Collette, LaKeith Stanfield, Don Johnson, Katherine Langford ... A great team that made sure to keep the mystery to the end.

The trick worked so well that for the second installment we again had a shower of stars, among which would be: Kate Hudson, Dave Bautista, Kathryn Hahn, Edward Norton, Janelle MonĂ¡e, Leslie Odom Jr. or Ethan Hawke.

For the rest, Johnson himself announced in mid-September that filming had concluded, a job that took the entire team to the Greek coast where a murder would have interrupted Benoit Blanc's vacation? We will have to wait for the premiere of 'Knives Out 2', which has no date yet.
