Knives Out 2 and 3 going ahead


Recommended Posts

Good stuff, I really enjoyed the first one. That's quite a pretty penny to pay for them though, how much did the first film make at the box office?

Always ready for more of Benoit Blanc.

 

 

$40m, according to that article in the OP.

 

Really? Hmm, Netflix overpaying a bit then, imo.

We can all wipe our arses with money can't we? How many notes do you need? 

 

I really liked Knives Out and am genuinely looking forward to more mysteries. I was suspicious at first that Johnson dared to steal the title of a great Radiohead song but he did well, he didn't ruin the song by association.

Not now the notes are plastic. Still more effective than those sheets you used to get at school though.

Even Spectre? Exception that proves the rule, really.

 

Even there the rule holds: he was one of the best things in SPECTRE, so the film was better with him than it would have been without him!

I've heard that Daniel Craig plays 2 characters, the other being an evil twin brother type character. Normally that's a bad sign but I think that idea fits this series very well.


That was just a joke. That they were going to introduce his other weirdly accented character from Soderberg's Logan Lucky as Benoit's brother. 

With a 3rd Knives Out introducing yet another Southern Daniel Craig triplet.

Oh come on, it worked in Nativity 2.

Oh really? I must have just read a headline and got excited :lol:

Such a shame as Knives Out was a lovely example of a proper old fashioned stand-alone film, in an era of endless franchise movies.  It did so well it's had to become another bloody franchise.

 

I dunno - surely a detective setup like this lends itself to multiple instalments? It's not like they're taking something manifestly unsuitable for a sequel where they have to set up any number of narrative contrivances to justify a sequel. Benoit Blanc investigating a new case feels like a natural progression.

Sure the setup can handle it, but Beniot Blanc investigating a new case is an entirely different proposition to something brand new with all the surprises that brings.  That balance seems to be weighted a bit too heavily in favour of films that are more of the same with familiar characters, so it was nice to get a big, successful film that was back to what I think films do best - stand alone stories.  I'd much rather have another new idea from the creators of Knives Out.
