LaKeith Stanfield has just bagged another box office hit.
Hit the link to below to find out how the African-American actor has carved out another cinematic hit with the murder-mystery ‘Knives Out.’
‘Knives Out’ tells the tale of an 85 year old crime novelist who is found dead the night after he hosts a party for his closest friends and family to celebrate his birthday.
His passing is ruled a suicide but things take a turn for the dramatic when an anonymous figure hires a private detective to get to the bottom of what may be a very sinister case.
The movie also stars Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Katherine Langford and Ana de Armas and is now rocking the box office with a global opening of $70 million.
$41 million of this was generated domestically!
The film earned $27 million over its Fri-Sun debut, nearly tied with the $29 million opening of Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express two years ago.With $41 million over the holiday, it snagged the eighth-biggest Thanksgiving debut for a live-action release, sans inflation, behind Creed 2 ($56 million in 2018), Enchanted ($49 million in 2007), Four Christmases ($46 million in 2008) and Unbreakable ($46 million in 2000), Back to the Future part II ($43 million in 1989), Creed ($42 million in 2015) and The Muppets ($41.5 million in 2011).
Great news for Stanfield.
For, this movie’s success comes after the box office glory he enjoyed with ‘Get Out’, ‘The Girl in the Spider’s Web’, ‘Death Note’, ‘Sorry to Bother You’ and ‘Straight Outta Compton.’
I’m a big fan of LaKeith Stanfield, Daniel Kaluuya, and Chadwick Boseman
