Knives Out wowed viewers and critics alike at its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival. Currently it boasts a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with both the cast and writer/director receiving accolades for the films wit, intelligence, and entertainment value. It’s next stop is the BFI London Film Festival on October 8 and it was just recently announced by WIRED that a screening will be shown at the second annual WIRED25 festival in San Francisco taking place November 7-10.
WIRED 25 is a festival that focuses on finding the good in the world — a sentiment much needed in today’s climate — by bringing together writers, actors, scientists, tech leaders and more like-minded people with a desire to help fix the world for a four day event to renew your faith in humanity.
Knives Out will be shown over the weekend, with writer/director Rian Johnson and actor Chris Evans in attendance. It has also been noted that Evans will be making his first public announcement on the project he’s been working on for some months now, his website A Starting Point. Evans has been seen around Washington D.C. in his downtime interviewing politicians to create one place for voters to reference when looking to get authentic information, and it will be directly from the sources themselves. He’s given them lists of questions and topics — all relevant to today’s issues and topics — for them to choose from and give a concise one minute response on their take and solution. The site is completely neutral and they’ll be tackling issues such as gun control, immigration, climate change, net neutrality, and LGBTQ issues among many others.
Tickets for the event are available now and it’s sure to be a do not miss event.
