It’s official! The trailer for the latest Knives Out mystery, starring Daniel Craig as Detective Benoit Blanc is out!
Glass Onion is the sequel to the original Knives Out movie released on November 27, 2019. The sequel is set to premiere in cinemas on November 23, 2022 and will come to Netflix exactly one month from then, on December 23, 2022.
What can we expect?
An Agatha Christie-style mystery, Glass Onion tells the story of a private detective, Benoit Blanc, who talks like a member of the Southern aristocracy with an accent that has been described by one character as a “Kentucky Fried Foghorn Leghorn Drawl”.
The synopsis for Glass Onion is thus:
Tech billionaire Miles Bron invites his friends for a getaway on his private Greek island. When someone turns up dead, Detective Benoit Blanc is put on the case.
From the trailer, viewers can see that Miles Bron sets up a murder mystery game on the island. This is similar to Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot mystery, Dead Man’s Folly, having a murder mystery game. A game, might I add, which resulted in the actual death of a child. It appears that in Benoit Blanc’s new mystery, he will have to resolve the issue of a fun game turned deadly.
The star-studded cast of this upcoming movie consists of Daniel Craig as Detective Benoit Blanc, Edward Norton as Miles Bron, Janelle Monáe as Cassandra “Andi” Bran, 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, Ethan Hawke as Miles’ assistant/butler, Dallas Roberts as Claire’s husband and Jackie Hoffman as Duke’s mother.
The first teaser trailer of the movie primarily showed shots of the famous ensemble cast, but this trailer is more informative. It luckily explains more about the upcoming murder mystery movie.
