Netflix has officially dropped the second trailer for Rian Johnson’s “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery,” the first of two planned sequels to his celebrated 2019 update of the Agatha Christie murder mystery formula.
Daniel Craig reprises his role as a detective Benoit Blanc and the film also star Kathryn Hahn, Ethan Hawke, Edward Norton, Dave Bautista, Kate Hudson, Janelle Monae, Leslie Odom Jr, Jessica Henwick, and Madelyn Cline.
In the film, a tech billionaire (Norton) invites his nearest & dearest for a getaway on his private Greek island. It’s not long before someone turns up dead.
“We had such an amazing cast in the last one and I didn’t know how we were going to top that, but we’ve equaled it. The working experience, just to come on set and make these movies is such fun,” Daniel Craig tells TUDUM.
“The mystery is not going to be what keeps the audience in their seats. Remember first and foremost that you’re making a movie and that it has to dramatically work before it intellectually works as a puzzle,” writer-director Rian Johnson says. “That’s actually still the hard part – creating a good story that feels unique and feels exciting and emotionally feels satisfying at the end.”
“Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” will score a one-week theatrical run in late November and is set to release on the Netflix service on December 23rd.
