Where to watch Knives Out

In 2019, the murder mystery genre got a fresh infusion of life and a new detective for the post-modern millennium with Rian Johnson’s twisty thriller Knives Out. Starring James Bond himself, Daniel Craig, as the loquacious Southern sleuth Benoit Blanc, the movie is a classic whodunit with a subtle stream of social satire interspersed between shocking deaths.

A hit with audiences and critics alike, Knives Out naturally spawned sequel talk, with not one but two sequels commissioned to follow Benoit as he solves mysteries in exotic locations with a rotating cast of A-listers and character actors. With the first sequel, Glass Onion, about to be released on Netflix, those eager to watch the original will need to know where to find it.

Check out our explainer on where to watch the Knives Out sequel Glass Onion. The sequel, which had a one-week run in theaters over the Thanksgiving holiday, is just as good as the original, according to critics, audiences, and DT’s own film reviewer. While only Craig returns from the original cast, the mystery is just as enthralling, and the new cast consisting of Janelle Monae, Kate Hudson, Edward Norton, Dave Bautista, Leslie Odom Jr., and WandaVision‘s Kathryn Hahn (plus some surprise cameos) is top-notch.

Is it worth watching Knives Out?

Knives Out Trailer #1 (2019) | Movieclips Trailers

Yes! This film was a hit a few years ago for a reason. Knives Out is an excellent murder mystery with a subtle layer of social commentary hiding just beneath the bloodshed. The plot is complex but never too dense to follow, and the autumnal atmosphere and picturesque New England locations are perfect for cozy viewing during the cold months of the year.

The cast is what really sells it though, and you can’t get much better than the one Knives Out has: Daniel Craig, Blonde‘s Ana De Armas, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Christopher Plummer, Toni Collette, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, LaKeith Stanfield, and more. There all superbly directed by Johnson, who shows a flair for mystery that was evident as far back as his 2005 film Brick.

Currently, Knives Out registers 97% on the Tomatometer on Rotten Tomatoes and a critics score of 82 on Metacritic.

Where to watch the Eurovision 2023 Grand Final: live stream the song contest
Three women and one man pose for the Eurovision 2023 signing contest.

Are you ready for a worldwide celebration? Europe's most famous singing competition, the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest, returned this week with a characteristic flourish. For those unfamiliar with the contest, European countries each submit one original song to be performed live by a singer or band from their respective country. The competing countries cast their votes for other countries' songs to determine a winner. The contest has been around since 1956, making it one of the longest-running annual, international televised music competitions.

Eurovision is usually held in the country of the winner from the previous year. However, the 2022 winner, Ukraine, will not host due to its war with Russia. The 2023 contest will instead take place in Liverpool, U.K. The semifinals will be hosted by Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso), Julia Sanina (The X Factor Ukraine), and Alesha Dixon (Australia's Got Talent), with Graham Norton (The Graham Norton Show) joining the trio for the final.

Where to watch the John Wick movies for free

With John Wick: Chapter 4 out now and receiving rapturous praise from critics and audiences alike, there is one question that many people are now asking: What is the greatest action film of the 21st century? Mad Max: Fury Road, Skyfall, The Raid, The Dark Knight, and Mission Impossible: Fallout all have compelling cases. However, compiling the best action films of the last 23 years and not mentioning John Wick is a crime. Arguments could be made for all the John Wick movies; that's how strong they are in the action genre.

John Wick started with a simple premise. Wick (The Matrix's Keanu Reeves, who is no stranger to action), a former hit man, returns to the criminal world he left behind after the arrogant son of a Russian mobster kills his dog, which was a gift from his now-deceased wife. Hell-bent on revenge, Wick hunts down the son with reckless abandon, killing every single person who stands in his way. John Wick was a sleeper hit in 2014, and nine years later, the story about a legendary hit man mourning the loss of his wife and dog is a global franchise. The fourth film, John Wick: Chapter 4, just earned the highest opening weekend gross of the franchise.
