Chris Pine and Thandiwe Newton Star in First Prime Video Thriller Trailer All the old knives. Based on the best-selling spy novel by Olen Steinhauer (who also wrote the screenplay), the film is directed by Janus Metz, who directed the acclaimed war documentary Armadillo. The film stars veteran actors Laurence Fishburne and Jonathan Pryce.

Newton just appeared in the Sundance debut God’s country and will come back for Westworld season 4, as well as doing voice work for the Chicken coop continued, Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget. She also joins Magic Mike 3 in a lead role.
It’s been a while since a good cat-and-mouse style spy thriller debuted and All the old knives seems reminiscent of movies like Handyman, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, The Russia HouseWhere No Exit, mixing the thrill and suspense of the spy genre with the romance, which almost always ends in a kind of bitter double cross. The trailer’s meditative pace suggests a slow-burning thriller, which works well for spy movies, helping to build tension. Pine and Newton seem like a great couple for a movie like this, so hopefully All the old knives delivers on the promise shown here when it debuts on Prime Video on April 8, 2022.
