A whodunnit like no one has ever dunnit. 🔪 A post shared by Lionsgate Movies (@lionsgate) on

In the previous trailer, Evans seems to play the role of an unabashed, disgruntled (and slightly spoilt) member in the family chain. Special mention to a hilarious scene where Evans' character voices his repulsion for his kin with a 10-second-shot of him saying "eat sh*t" to everyone around him.

Knives Out is scheduled to hit theatres on 27 November.
