If you're already planning your online watch list for what looks to be a social distancing summer, Amazon Prime Video has you covered with the upcoming release of what Heather Wixson called "a pitch-perfect murder mystery" in her 5-star review.

On their official Twitter account (which was retweeted by the Knives Out Twitter account), Amazon Prime Video revealed that they'll be adding Rian Johnson's Knives Out to their digital library on June 12th, making it free to watch for those who have an Amazon Prime membership.

If you're quarantining with your family, it could make for an especially timely watch... so long as real life doesn't begin to mirror the deadly events of the film.

"Acclaimed writer and director Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper, The Last Jedi) pays tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie in KNIVES OUT, a fun, modern-day murder mystery where everyone is a suspect. When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate.

From Harlan’s dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan’s untimely death. With an all-star ensemble cast including Chris Evans, Ana De Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, Toni Collette, LaKeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford and Jaeden Martell, KNIVES OUT is a witty and stylish whodunit guaranteed to keep audiences guessing until the very end."
