“Knives Out 2” Sequel “Glass Onion” Reveals Photos, Release Date

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery has an official release date and a few juicy images. The sequel to Rian Johnson’s wildly successful, deliciously enjoyable Knives Out will see the return of Daniel Craig’s gentleman detective Benoit Blanc this holiday season.

Glass Onion will arrive on Netflix on December 23 (and will play in select theaters at a soon-to-be-announced date), following its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. That theater release, however, is a big deal—it means that Netflix is positioning Johnson’s sequel for awards season, as the theatrical release allows it to vie for Oscars.

Considering Glass Onion will be another mystery, you can expect that Netflix will be keeping details of the plots under wraps. What we do know is that Craig is joined by another incredible ensemble cast, including Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Leslie Odom Jr., Kathryn Hahn, Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson, Dave Bautista, and Ethan Hawke. Who among this talented group is our killer? Who is our victim? And how much fun will be had with the film’s setting, which is Greece?

Netflix revealed the two new images via tweet. One show’s the lion’s share of the cast, and the second reveals a behind-the-scenes shot of Johnson and star Janelle Monáe.
