A prolific mystery novelist, Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer), is found dead at his estate of an apparent suicide shortly after celebrating his 85th birthday with his extended family. Famed investigator Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) arrives on the scene, immediately suspecting foul play and that one of the family members is directly involved with the murder.
The new trailer reveals Chris Evans as the black sheep of the family, conspicuously absent from the birthday celebrations but first on the scene for the reading of his late grandfather's will, much to his family's visible chagrin.
The trailer quietly ups the tension and body count as Blanc finds himself unraveling a mystery steeped in family drama and intrigue to find the true culprit behind Harlan's death.
