The knives? They’re out. The onion? It’s glass. And the forged? Completely stacked.
The primary trailer for director Rian Johnson’s extremely anticipated sequel to 2019’s prompt style basic “Knives Out” is right here, with Daniel Craig and his Southern drawl again on the middle of one other whodunit.
In the Agatha Christie-esque follow-up, titled “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery,” a brand new homicide thriller unfolds on a tropical Grecian isle ― principally the one place the forged and crew may movie a film final summer time in the course of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This time, detective Benoit Blanc (Craig) could have his palms full with a recent crop of potential suspects and victims, together with Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson and Dave Bautista.
They’ve all gathered on a non-public island owned by reclusive tech millionaire Miles Bron (Norton), who’s invited the colourful group to paradise. Somebody turns up lifeless, naturally.
In the trailer, we see flashes of a knife-wielding Hudson, enjoying a fashionista named Birdie Jay, and Bautista, absolutely embodying the position of unhinged YouTube star and firing off a number of gunshots poolside.
“Lock the doors. Stay in your rooms,” Craig’s Blanc says within the clip. “Everyone is in danger.”
Talking with Netflix’s Tudum in a latest interview, Johnson mentioned he took inspiration from Christie’s work to craft a brand new compelling thriller.
“Every single time, she found a way into it that felt unique and fresh, and you could tell it was challenging her creatively,” he instructed the outlet.
“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 mentioned. “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. I know when I’m reading or watching a whodunit, I always let go of the notion of figuring it out about a third of the way through it.”
“Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” will debut at Toronto International Movie Pageant this month earlier than arriving on Netflix on Dec. 23.
