Kate Hudson, Madelyn Cline, Daniel Craig, and Janelle Monae are just a few of the well-known actors who appear in the highly anticipated Knives Out sequel. Benoit Blanc as played by Craig this time travels to Greece to investigate the latest whodunit. Although there isn't a trailer yet, if it's half as convoluted as the first movie, it will undoubtedly become another success.

The warriors are responsible for guarding the Kingdom of Dahomey against invaders and other kingdoms, under the leadership of Davis' character Nanisca.

This movie, which centers on wealthy, privileged people doing badly, will be much anticipated by fans of The White Lotus. The satirical film, which stars Woody Harrelson, Harris Dickinson from Where the Crawdads Sing, and Charlbi Dean Kriek, who just passed away last August, make fun of the cruise ship business and some of the negative aspects of leading a posh lifestyle. Since the movie has already won the renowned Palme d'Or, moviegoers are sure to love it and it may even win an Oscar the following year.
