Rian Johnson has received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay for “Knives Out”. The darkly funny whodunnit, bringing in over $250 million worldwide, was penned by Johnson is what fueled it as one of this year’s highest-rated films. It was nominated for Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards, among many others, but today it earned one of the highest honors — an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Script. A nod duly earned. Featuring an all-star ensemble cast including Daniel Craig, Ana de Armas, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, Toni Collette, and Christopher Plummer, the tale of the Thrombey/Drysdale family succeeded beyond expectations. Johnson’s complicated, twisting plot guided by these superstar performers was a catalyst for greatness, and we can only hope the rumors of a sequel featuring Craig’s savvy Southern detective Benoit Blanc are true. Knives Out was a blast from its classic mystery music beginning to the iconic final shot, with the rewatches being just as delightful and amusing as you discover the trail of clues Johnson left in plain sight all along the way. You can tune in to see if Rian Johnson, and all the other nominees, bring home the gold on February 9 at 8 p.m. EST live on ABC. Check out the full list of Academy Award nominees here!
According to Variety, “Knives Out,” the acclaimed whodunit from director Rian Johnson, hit a notable box office milestone this weekend, crossing $100 million in the U.S. and $200 million worldwide. It’s another triumph for original content – a form of entertainment once thought to be imperiled by the ubiquity of franchise fare. “Knives Out” became the de facto choice for families without young kids over the holiday season. Lionsgate’s motion picture co-chairman Joe Drake said the film had a broader appeal than the studio initially expected. From Lionsgate, Media Rights Capital and T-Street, “Knives Out” cost $40 million. “On paper, you could say that [‘Knives Out’] could live on a streaming service,” Drake told Variety. “But when you take the screenplay Rian Johnson wrote and the cast he put together, you deliver the kind of experience which is dramatic, thrilling, really funny and really suspenseful. It hits all those beats that make for the theatrical ride.” To compete with superhero tentpoles and big-budget blockbusters, Drake says it takes a mix of “the science and the art of our business.” “We’re focusing on theatrical audiences, looking at genres and concepts for a combination of what we believe can create urgency to see on a Friday night,” he said. “There’s data and art to making creative decisions.” “We really believe in the audience,” Drake said. “For ‘Knives Out,’ it really captured the imagination of the audience. They have been selective, but they clearly have a big appetite.”
