As if the anticipation for his followup to Star War: The Last Jedi could get any higher, a new trailer takes us further into the murder mystery and teases the colorful group of suspects without giving away anything crucial.

Johnson really dig into his Facebook friends for this one, casting Daniel Craig, Lakeith Stanfield, Toni Collette, Jamie Lee Curtis, Christopher Plummer, Chris Evans, Don Johnson, Katherine Langford, Michael Shannon, Ana de Armas, Jaeden Martell, and more.
This trailer gives us a look at the dark humor Johnson’s bringing to the table, with a tone that that resembles the cult favorite, Clue.
