Benoit Blanc is Back in First “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Story” Trailer

We open on a massive yacht cruising through the beautiful blue waters of Greece. Inside, there’s a table full of suspects, all nattily attired and eagerly awaiting the arrival of one very particular man. “Ladies and gentlemen,” a voice offscreen says with a familiar twang, announcing his arrival. We know who this is; it’s Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig), the gentleman detective who has arrived onboard to solve a mystery. Chaos, intrigue, and the exacting work of one very brilliant man are sure to ensue.

The first teaser for Rian Johnson’s follow-up to Knives Out has arrived, and it’s a beautiful piece of intrigue. It also reveals very little about the plot, which is to be expected of a murder mystery. Glass Onion: A Knives Out Story will find Craig’s Benoit Blanc trying to piece together another dangerous puzzle, working with (and against) another colorful cast of potential victims, or potential murderers. The cast includes Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Leslie Odom Jr., Kathryn Hahn, Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson, and Dave Bautista, looking particularly Grecian in his speedo. 

Glass Onion is set to have a theatrical release, by the way, which means that Netflix is positioning Johnson’s sequel for awards season, as the theatrical release allows it to vie for Oscars.

The sequel will arrive on Netflix on December 23 (and will play in select theaters at a soon-to-be-announced date), following its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

Check out the official teaser trailer below:
