Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery trailer teases star-studded new case
Daniel Craig's Benoit Blanc is back and has another crime to crack.
Netflix has just unveiled a trailer for Rian Johnson's highly-anticipated Knives Out sequel, Glass Onion.
The film stars Daniel Craig as soft-spoken sleuth Benoit Blanc and is set for a December release.
Blanc will be swapping the eerie New England countryside for sun-soaked Greece to solve a brand new case. That means the Thrombeys and Ana de Armas's Marta Cabrera will most likely not return for the sequel.
Instead, the detective will have to figure out a fresh batch of suspects, with the trailer giving us a hint of the sort of antics we can expect from them. And it looks like they could give the Thrombeys a run for their money.
"Ladies and gentleman, you expected a mystery, you expected a puzzle, but for one person on this island, this is not a game," Blanc drawls in the trailer.
"Will you explain it to us then, detective," Leslie Odom Jr asks, voicing everyone's thoughts.
Though the cast is new, the star power is just as impressive as it was in Knives Out. Joining Odom Jr, Dave Bautista, Edward Norton, Kathryn Hahn, Kate Hudson, Jessica Henwick, Janelle Monáe, Ethan Hawke and Madelyn Cline will be putting Blanc's legendary skills to the test.
And judging by the trailer below, he's got a difficult task ahead.
Henwick had previously told RadioTimes.com that she thought fans would be "happy" with the sequel. "Daniel was back and Benoit has his style and his flair that is very specific to this film series, and yeah, it's gonna hit all the same fun beats. It's such a ride," she said.
The film will premiere at multiple film festivals before a limited theatre run. It will then be released on Netflix on 23rd December 2022, just in time for Christmas.
