IndieWire critic David Ehrlich equally gushed over the movie in his evaluation. “Rian Johnson’s “Knives Out” – a crackling, devious, and massively satisfying old-school whodunnit with a contemporary twist – needs you to know that it takes place on the planet of right this moment. Actually, it needs you to know that it needs you to know. Hardly a minute goes by with out some reference to the right here and now of all of it. When legendary crime novelist Harlan Thrombey is discovered useless the morning after his 85th birthday, it’s as if the previous dies with him and the current comes speeding in to interchange it, keen to assert the inheritance to which it all the time felt entitled.”

Netflix’s “Unbelievable” trailer introduces Emmy winners Toni Collette and Merrit Wever as detectives Grace Rasmussen and Karen Duvall, who come across two familiar-sounding cases. As Entertainment Weekly reports, hundreds of miles away in a different state, Marie Adler (Kaitlyn Dever), a teenage girl, filed a police report that claimed she was sexually assaulted by an intruder in her home. The police kept trying to poke holes in her story and ultimately determined she wasn’t credible and that there was no victim in this case. Meanwhile, Grace and Karen discover two new rapes on their own turf with the same M.O. as Marie’s alleged attacker. Thus begins the search for a potential serial rapist.

Does this story already sound familiar? That’s because the series is based on the true events in T. Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong’s Pulitzer Prize-winning article from ProPublica and The Marshall Project titled “An Unbelievable Story of Rape,” as well as the radio episode of This American Life tackling this same subject, “Anatomy of Doubt.” The trailer description comes with contact information for RAINN’s National Sexual Assault Hotline for anyone who has experienced sexual violence in their lives. The number for the hotline is 800.656.HOPE (4673) and the website is online.rainn.org. Unbelievable debuts on Netflix Sep. 13.

Rian Johnson’s Knives Out is coming into focus with the new trailer. The ensemble cast includes Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Lakeith Stanfield, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Katherine Langford, Ana de Armas and Jamie Lee Curtis. “Knives Out” centers on a detective (Craig) investigating a murder when he comes across an eccentric, combative family. “I’ve been a die-hard Agatha Christie fan since I was a teenager,” Johnson said at CinemaCon in April. “Knives Out was my attempt to take everything I love about an Agatha Christie who-done-it, jam it into an all-star cast, give it a Hitchcock thriller, genre twist and set it in modern-day America.” Johnson last directed Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Before that he built a following for his genre films, such as his noir-tinged debut feature Brick (2006), and the time traveling drama Looper (2012). He is also developing a new trilogy of Star Wars films for Lucasfilm.

Toni Collette has arrived in Munich, Germany, for the shooting of Joe Penna’s scifi triller “Stowaway”, and her co-star Anna Kendrick has posted the first picture from the set on Instagram.

XYZ Films is producing “Stowaway” alongside Augenschein Filmproduktion, Rise Pictures and RainMaker Films in association with Yale Productions.

On a mission headed to Mars, an unintended stowaway (Shamier Anderson) accidentally causes severe damage to the spaceship’s life support systems.
