Read full synopsis:

A mystery is brewing at the Thrombrey residence as wealthy family patriarch Harlan (Christopher Plummer) celebrates his 85th birthday surrounded by his estranged family, brought together just for the big day.

While socialising merrily, however, all the guests and house staff are quickly made aware of some troubling news. Learning of the shocking and sudden death of the elderly Harlan, all are equally horrified by the confusing turn of events, and equally baffled as to who the culprit is.

Sent to uncover the grisly truth behind the puzzling murder, keen-eyed Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig), with help from detectives Trooper Wagner (Noah Segan) and Troy Archer (LaKeith Stanfield), begins to work his way through the dysfunctional family, ruling nobody out. Anyone could have committed this foul atrocity, and everyone is a suspect.

Directed by Rian Johnson, this thrilling modern take on the classic whodunit murder mystery stars Chris Evans, Daniel Craig, LaKeith Stanfield, and Jamie Lee Curtis.
