The Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery trailer is out and promises a thrilling whodunnit from Rian Johnson. The trailer gives us a taste of the film’s plot where a murder mystery party turns into a real murder mystery where the guests are the suspects.
Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc is a guest at the party and is now tasked with solving the crime. Craig is the only cast member to reprise his role from the first film, which came out in 2019. The cast includes Edward Norton, Janelle Monae, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr, Kate Hudson, Dave Bautista. Norton plays the millionaire who organizes the murder mystery party.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. It has since been screened at several other film festivals. Rian Johnson has previously said he will continue to build the Knives Out franchise.
Rian said in a statement: “The mystery isn’t going to be what keeps the audience in their seats. First of all, remember that you’re making a movie and it has to be dramatic before it works like a puzzle intellectually.” He added, “That’s actually still the hardest part — creating a good story that feels unique and feels exciting and emotionally satisfying at the end.”
Daniel Craig said: “We had such a great cast in the last one and I didn’t know how we were going to top that, but we matched it. The work experience, just getting on set and making these movies is so much fun.”
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is in theaters for a week from November 23. It will be available to stream on Netflix from December 23.
