Netflix has finally revealed a first look at the upcoming Knives Out sequel titled Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. Rian Johnson‘s highly anticipated sequel will see the return of Daniel Craig‘s internationally renowned detective Mr. Blanc. Glass Onion will take the detective on a trip to Greece to solve another unsolvable misdeed.
While Netflix still hasn’t revealed the nature of the crime that will take Mr. Blanc to Greece in the upcoming sequel, from the first-look image we can say that the filmmakers are going to include Greece as its own character because of the unique background that is presented in the image. Glass Onion was partly shot in the European country and that definitely shows in the image, because shooting on-site definitely adds something unexplainable to a scene.
The first image also gives us a better look at the star-studded cast of the upcoming sequel film. Just like the first film which starred Ana de Armas, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Toni Collette, the sequel also has a star-studded cast including Dave Bautista, Kathryn Hahn, Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Leslie Odom Jr., and Kate Hudson. When we look at the image, it’s obvious that the sequel will also have its own fair share of colorful characters just like the first film, and Mr. Blanc will again have to dig deeper and go through every character to find the truth.
Knives Out got critical acclaim upon its release and it was loved by the audience as well, which is evident as the film grossed nearly $311 million worldwide on a budget of $40 million. This success made the sequel ever more expensive making Netflix sign the creator of the film Johnson for a $469 million deal for two Knives Out sequels. While the third Knives Out film is still untitled we do know that Johnson has completed the script for the threequel and will start shooting for it in some time.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery will make its world premiere during this year’s Toronto Film Festival, which is going to start on September 8 and then end on September 18. Then the sequel film will be released simultaneously in theaters worldwide and on Netflix on December 23. Check out the first look image below:
