Trailer has some bad language but looks like a ton of fun. Been awhile since a funny murder mystery came out. Knives Out is in US In theaters November 27, 2019

I really loved it.

It reminded me of the CLUE movie. Very similar sensibility. Kind of slow moving by today’s standards, but well crafted. The casting is amazing and the character palette is right out of Clue. There’s even an explicit reference to Clue in the movie.

It’s... different. Not in a bad way, in fact I have to give it props for being totally unpredictable for me for a majority of it. It just wasn’t what I was expecting. I should watch it again, knowing what to expect the second time around. It wasn’t what I wanted it to be, but it was well done and I have to say a good film.

I really enjoyed the movie. I wish they'd left out some of the current hot topic references though that will really date it in the future...
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

True, the same with some song lyrics these days; the song will fade into obscurity with to many hot topics of the day.

I don't know how accurate it is, but there's at least one site
(https://www.dvdsreleasedates.com/movies/9369/knives-out)
that was saying "Knives Out DVD and Blu-ray release date is estimated for February 2020 and available on Digital HD from Amazon Video and iTunes is estimated for February 2020."
