Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery: Release Date, Cast, Trailer, and Everything to Know

'For one person on this island, this is not a game'

Kat Moon

In Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, there's a new murder mystery to solve. Instead of taking place at Harlan Thrombey's Massachusetts mansion like in the first Knives Out, the crime in Glass Onion occurs on a Greek island. Tech billionaire Miles Bron (Edward Norton) has invited friends over for a weekend getaway, but the trip takes a deadly turn. Thankfully, Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) was one of the guests, and we have faith that the master detective will once again uncover the truth.

Written and directed by Rian Johnson, the film is a follow-up to 2019's Knives Out. But the new movie features an entirely different cast besides Daniel Craig, who reprises his role as brilliant, Cajun-accented private investigator Benoit Blanc. And while the first Knives Out was distributed theatrically in the U.S. by Lionsgate Films, in 2021 Netflix bought the next two sequels for $450 million. The movie will be released in global theaters for one week in November before it launches on the streaming service in December.

Netflix released the official trailer for Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery on Nov. 7. In the clip, it's clear that host Miles Bron did not expect an actual crime to take place on his island. Instead, when he invited his guests, he had orchestrated a game to solve the mystery of a pretend murder where he is the victim. Things soon go south when an actual body turns up.

The teaser trailer for Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery dropped on Sep 8. It gives us a good look at all of the major players in this murder mystery. Only, as Blanc himself says, "For one person on this island, this is not a game."
