Directed by Edge of Tomorrow and The Bourne Identity's Doug Liman and written by Knight, the movie isn't about people baking banana bread or watching copious (more) amounts of porn to try and get through the pandemic.
Instead, it's about a group of people who look at the current crisis and decide that now is the perfect time to try and rob famous London department store Harrods.
Okay, there is a fair bit of people going out of their minds with boredom, as Anne Hathaway and Chiwetel Ejiofor play a couple who are about to separate when a mandatory lockdown is announced.
Living together through the lockdown proves to be a challenge and it's not long before the couple reaches the end of their tether. But soon Linda (Hathaway) and Paxton (Ejiofor) get the idea to take advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic and come up with a cunning plan to pull off a jewellery heist at Harrods.
Elsewhere, the film also stars Ben Kingsley, Mindy Kaling (who starred with Hathaway in Ocean's 8, another heist movie), Ben Stiller, Stephen Merchant, Mark Gatiss, Lucy Boynton, Dulé Hill and Marek Larwood.
We don't know yet what roles everyone else is playing, and we didn't notice all of them in the trailer either, so we're excited to see how and when they pop up.
Locked Down is one of the projects that has been filmed since the first lockdown that specifically addresses the pandemic.
BBC soap Casualty was praised for showing the devastating effects on the NHS across the last year when it returned from a production break last week, while KJ Apa's movie Songbird was heavily criticised for just being rubbish, to be honest.
Locked Down will premiere on HBO Max in the US on January 14. A UK release date has yet to be announced.
