Knives Out 2: Rian Johnson’s Glass Onion Gets Synopsis and Release Date
Published 3 months ago
Rian Johnson may not be working on Star Wars now, but he has teamed up with Netflix for more Knives Out movie starring Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc. The next film in the franchise is Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, and we have a new synopsis as well as a release date.
As per Netflix, Glass Onion is now set to premiere on the streaming service on December 23, 2022. Here’s the synopsis:
If Knives Out was about the murderous ties of flesh and blood, Glass Onion makes a good case for being just as wary of one’s closest friends. When tech billionaire Miles Bron (Edward Norton) invites some of his nearest and dearest for a getaway on his private Greek island, it soon becomes clear that all is not perfect in paradise. And when someone turns up dead, well, who better than Blanc to peel back the layers of intrigue?
Besides Craig, the film has amassed an impressive cast which includes the likes of Dave Bautisysa, Kathryn Hahn, Jannele Monae, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, and Kate Hudson. We don’t know who each will play specifically, but the cast is just as colourful as the first Knives Out.
What’s also interesting about Glass Onion, is it actually has Craig’s Blanc as the protagonist this time around. Johnson explains, “In the first one, because of the way it was structured, Marta, Ana de Armas’ character, was very much the protagonist. In a big way, Blanc was the threat. He was almost the antagonist in terms of just the story structure, because you were worried, even as they got closer, that he was going to catch her and he was going to have to turn her over at the end. So Blanc was always outside of the sphere of our protagonist and was a little bit more of an enigma in the first movie. Whereas, in this one, Blanc gets an invitation to come to this murder mystery on this island. We’re very much meeting these people and getting into this world through his eyes.”
Hopefully we get a new trailer soon. Catch Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery when it premieres on Netflix on Dec. 23.
