Knives Out has made its way to the theatres with a great story and a stellar star cast to play it out. From the director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Rian Johnson, the film sees Chris Evans aka Captain America ditch his superhero suit for the murder mystery. Apart from the mega star, James Bond actor Daniel Craig, Jamie Lee Curtis, Katherine Langford and Ana De Armas take the star cast to a whole new level. Despite directing some heavy weight actors from Star Wars in his career, director Johnson was quite thrilled about the talent he managed to bring to the table.

Speaking to Metro UK about the same, Johnson said, "I can’t believe we got away with it! Every single day (of filming) I felt that and the actors did too." Dishing about one of America's favourite supehero, Johnson added, "Chris Evans, he showed up just ready to have fun with the part. That’s real. That’s a genuine reflection to how it was on set. I was pinching myself." 

He also said that Daniel Craig was ‘the reason this film got made’. However, Johnson points out that Ana De Armas' performance was simply incredible. "Ana de Armas is amazing in this film. She’s really amazing. For her to walk into the middle of a cast like this and for her to carry the movie has confidently as she does? I think she’s incredible," Johnson shared. 

Pinkvilla in it's review of Knives Out also echoed similar sentiments about Ana. "The real show-stealer of Knives Out is Ana de Armas, who sinks her teeth wholly into Marta and is the symbolism of the elitist's attitude to immigrants. There's a poignant scene between all the family members fighting over the immigration issues that America is currently plagued with and in contrast, is the constant motif that none of these members know where Marta is really from," a part of the review reads.
