Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery Trailer Teases New Murder and Plenty of Stars

By Jessica Lerner 

Det. Benoit Blanc has a new case in the follow-up to Rian Johnson‘s Knives Out.

In the newly released trailer for Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, we catch a glimpse of Blanc’s latest case: a mysterious set of invitations, a wealthy group of friends, a millionaire’s reclusive private island and, oh yeah, another murder mystery.

In the film, set to be released Friday, Dec. 23, on Netflix, Blanc travels to Greece to unravel the layers of a case involving a fresh cast of colorful suspects.


Daniel Craig reprises his role, leading a cast that includes Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson and Dave Bautista.

“The phrase I kept coming back to and talking about the first movie is, ‘It’s a roller coaster and not a crossword puzzle,’” Johnson said in a statement. “It’s a common mistake in writing whodunits, thinking that you’re making a crossword puzzle and that the fun is that the audience is actually going to analyze all this and figure it out.”
