Star Wars 'Last Jedi' Director Rian Johnson Brings 'Knives Out' Against Trump Voters

n his first major motion picture since annoying and disappointing generations of Star Wars fans with The Last Jedi, writer-director-progressive Rian Johnson is poised to do the same to an even larger slice of the American public with next month's Knives Out. And lefty movie critics couldn't be more thrilled, according to the latest from Society Reviews.

SR reports that "critics at the Toronto International Film Festival [are] gushing about the film’s shared hatred for Trump and his voters," which is about as subtle as a knife to the throat.

KNIVES OUT is a fun ‘fuck you’ to rich white Trump voters, wrapped in a crafty Agatha Christie package. VERY pro immigration. And none of this is subtle. Enjoy it in a crowd. #TIFF19

Never mind that Trump was put into office by working-class voters in the Rust Belt, who switched allegiance from Obama to Trump following eight years of Democratic neglect. Hollywood has its narrative, and it's going to charge you at least ten bucks a ticket for the privilege of getting pummeled by Johnson's version of it.

$30M Pledged in Effort to Remake 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'

My wife and I saw the Knives Out trailer on the big screen earlier this summer, and it's being sold as a star-studded, darkly comic, murder mystery -- a sort-of 21st-century Clue. There's nothing overtly (or even covertly) political about the trailer. Some slightly NSFW language, but watch:

Whether or not the trailer makes you want to see the movie, there's nothing in it that tells you anything like this about it, from Collider senior editor Matt Goldberg:

KNIVES OUT is a total delight from start to finish. It’s also a scathing indictment of American greed in the Trump era. I’ll have more on that when the movie opens in November. #TIFF19

Pro Tip: Any movie advertising itself as a "scathing indictment" is generally not a movie you'll want to see. Which is maybe why Lionsgate has left all the anti-Trump-voter stuff out of the promotional materials. If you want to make an anti-Trump movie, or even an anti-Trump-voter movie, fine. But be honest about it and market what you’re selling. Carla Renata, "The Curvy Critic," thinks the movie will be a "healthy hit," thanks in part to its "constant digs at Trumpites." Lionsgate might make money in the short run, but the movie also might poison relations between Hollywood and Flyover Country even further. If word doesn't get out in a big way before Knives Out is released, a lot of viewers are going to be more than a little angry at having been made the butt of Johnson's joke twice: For two hours on the screen, and for ten or twelve bucks at the box office.

One of many things I love about Knives Out - it takes DIRECT aim at the MAGA crowd.

Based on the trailer, I was willing to give this one a chance. The marketing geniuses had me thinking that just maybe Johnson had learned from his Last Jedi blunder, and had made an entertaining movie targeted at a wide audience. Instead, he's given in to his anger and let the hate flow through him, directly onto movie screens in every Red State.

Emperor Palpatine, who will apparently return in some form or other in the next (not Rian Johnson-written-or-directed) Star Wars movie, would be pleased.

KNIVES OUT is a diabolical, hilarious, and massively entertaining whodunnit that updates the musty genre for the modern world and all of its MAGA assholes.

see it with the biggest crowd you can find. here’s my #tiff19 review: https://www.indiewire.com/2019/09/knives-out-review-rian-johnson-1202171812/

do white people even go watch movies at the theater anymore?

last time i was at a movie theater, there were basically zero white people. it was all mystery meat brown mixed race kids, loitering blacks, and asians. i remember seeing one young white mother with her 2 small children and thinking how incredibly out of place and time they seemed

i'm not sure it's even a bad "business decision" to completely stop making movies catering to normal white people. white people watch high-budget netflix/HBO/hulu TV shows etc in their own homes where they are sheltered from Diversity. they don't go watch feature-length films in theaters

Yea there's always stories from faggots on this board about white people seeming out of place.

Did she make eye contact with you? A shared confusion about what happened to America. Were here children crying?

I wasn’t a fan of Obama, but I could have given two shits about some anti Obama movie. Actually I would actively avoid such a movie

What is wrong with libs?
