Rian Johnson Participates in Twitter’s Knives Out Challenge with Star Wars: The Last Jedi Throwback
Knives Out hit theaters over the week of Thanksgiving and has been a big hit with critics and fans alike. Currently, the movie is up on Rotten Tomatoes with a 97% critics score after 344 reviews and a 93% audience score after 9,259 reviews. The film has an amazing cast, but the real breakout stars of the movie have been its dynamite sweaters, especially one worn by Chris Evans (Avengers: Endgame). Recently, a fan on Twitter decided to start #KnivesOutChallenge, which is literally just posting a photo of yourself in a sweater. Many people have participated, including the film's director, Rian Johnson, who shared a sweater photo from the set of his last film, Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
