Netflix released the first trailer for Rian Johnson’s Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery starring Daniel Craig returning as Detective Benoit Blanc on a new case. Set in Greece on the private island of tech billionaire Miles Bron (Edward Norton), where another game of whodunnit will take place. Watch the trailer below.
Directed by Rian Johnson. Netflix acquired the rights to two sequels to Knives Out for $469 million. According to Johnson (Via Netflix Tudum), Blanc’s penchant for bombast is partly to thank for the film’s title, which pays homage to the 1968 Beatles song of the same name. “I’m always fishing for something fun that Blanc can grab onto as an overwrought metaphor that he can beat to death,” he says. “This is all in plain sight from the very start. So, the idea of glass came to me, something that’s clear. I’ll be very honest. I literally got out my iPhone and searched my music library with the word glass. “There’s got to be some good glass songs.” I was like, “Oh, is it a glass fortress? Is it a glass castle? Is it a glass man?” The first thing that came up, because I’m a huge Beatles fan, is ‘Glass Onion.’”
The film stars Daniel Craig as Detective Benoit Blanc, Edward Norton as Miles Bron, Janelle Monáe as Cassandra, Kathryn Hahn as Claire Debella, Leslie Odom Jr. as Lionel Toussaint, Jessica Henwick as Peg, Madelyn Cline as Whiskey, Kate Hudson as Birdie Jay, Dave Bautista as Duke Cody, and Ethan Hawke.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery will have a limited release in theaters on November 2022, before its streaming release on December 23, 2022, on Netflix.
