Next 3 Best Picture Contenders: 'Richard Jewell,' '1917,' 'Little Women'

Daniel Craig leads an ensemble cast in Rian Johnson's marvelous suspense thriller Knives Out, a clever mystery that moves so fast that you need to see it twice just to uncover all the twists and turns. It's a thoroughly engaging and refreshing mystery, featuring Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon and Toni Collette as the privileged members of a wealthy family who may or may not have committed a heinous crime. Ana de Armas provides key support to Daniel Craig, a brilliant detective who is determined to solve the murder of esteemed writer Christopher Plummer.

Describing it as "one of the sharpest, smartest, funniest, most all-around entertaining films of the year," Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis notes: "It's hard to argue against a Best Picture nod" for Knives Out. Are there any Best Picture contenders yet to be released in theaters? Look out for these three in the next few weeks.
