“A desperate Hollywood film producer sets out to turn a popular play into a film. When members of the production are murdered, world-weary Inspector Stoppard and rookie Constable Stalker find themselves in the midst of a puzzling whodunit.”

Director: Tom George
Writer: Mark Chappell
Staring: Sam Rockwell, Adrien Brody, Harris Dickinson, Saoirse Ronan, Ruth Wilson, David Oyelowo
Release Date: September 9, 2022

Another who-dun-it! Let’s go!

Oh, and See How They Run is set in 1950 London’s movie landscape? Yes, color myself even more excited.

Based off this quick trailer which kindly shines a light on the major parts of the crime, the audience will be following the oddball tandem of Inspector Stoppard (Sam Rockwell) and Constable Walker (Saoirse Ronan) and their case surrounding the murder of Leo Köpernick (Adrien Brody).

See How They Run is going to be playing a bit more towards British comedy based off its setting and its director Tom George. This is his first major motion picture, but he has a ton of experience directing television shows, the majority of which aired on BBC. George has himself a writer who also is stepping foot into blockbuster movie potential, and he goes by the name of Mark Chappell. Together they aim to take a talented cast and create some magic.

Sam Rockwell has Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc ethos. I like the energy that he is bringing. It is not the same loud, over-the-top entrance that Craig had with his detective portrayal, but it does have the same “I know things that you don’t know I know” vibe. Also, you put Rockwell’s comedic skills next to constant award-seeking Saoirse Ronan, I like our chances at entertainment. Throw in what looks like an over-the-top Adrien Brody, and you have me very intrigued. Ronan and Brody are joining talents in a second straight movie, each having appeared in The French Dispatch (2021) last year.

It would appear that See How They Run will be coming out before Rain Johnson’s Glass Onion: A Knives Out Story (2022). It’ll be an appetizer for the Netflix entree that will surely be a holiday time release. While it may be served up to viewers before Glass Onion, I would deem it safe to say that See How They Run will be a very filling pallet setter. The cast is very good, and the genre itself usually lends for a higher floor than others. Deliver a good mystery and you will have me hook, line and sinker.

See How They Run comes to theaters on my birthday, September 9th. Very excited to try and treat myself to a proper showing.

If you like the look of See How They Run, you should check out Knives Out (2019),

Grading All The Contestants That Were On “Bachelor In Paradise”

Bachelor In Paradise ended in late November, and thank god it did. I’ll say it, 16 episodes is far too much. But with the mission ended and plenty of drama to unpack, it is time to reflect on everyone who took the sandy beaches of Mexico by storm. These are my purely subjective grades on […]
