Hollywood whodunit Knives Out in theaters today

Upon seeing the title Knives Out, users on Weibo, China's equivalent to Twitter, commented that they could not help but think of the beloved 2005 Chinese historical and war TV series, Drawing Sword (Liang Jian).

Even days ahead of its China premiere, the highly-anticipated film has scored a stellar 8.6 out of 10 on Douban, China's answer to IMDB.

The Chinese audience's intense curiosity for the Hollywood whodunit, which is all the rage in North America during the Thanksgiving holiday, will be finally slaked as it hits the Chinese silver screen today.

Featuring an all-star cast — including James Bond actor Daniel Craig, Captain America star Chris Evans, and Halloween franchise star Jamie Lee Curtis, the film is written and directed by Rian Johnson, director of The Last Jedi and Breaking Bad. 

The fun, modern-day whodunit tells of how detective Benoit Blanc, played by Craig, investigates the death of the patriarch of an eccentric, combative family.
