“Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” Official Trailer Reveals a Very Dangerous Game

The official trailer for writer/director Rian Johnson’s Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery reveals, at long last, a bit more of the film’s plot. Yet don’t expect the new trailer to unpeel the entire Glass Onion, or even the facts of the case, but it does offer us the setting, and a bit of set-up, to Johnson’s sequel.

Here’s what the trailer reveals: Edward Norton’s Miles Bron has gathered a slew of guests to an epic Greek mansion to play a little game of murder. The idea is this; Bron has scattered clues around the property that will lead the guests to the murderer—the victim is Bron himself—and whoever pieces together the crime gets to win the prize. The funny thing is one of the guests is none other than detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig, of course), so the game would seem to be rigged. Who among the rest of the assembled oddballs could best Blanc in detective skills? So, something is clearly amiss, and an actual murder will, of course, take place. Yet the trailer seems to suggest that even Blanc is having trouble with the rules of this particular game while the murderer is on the loose and likely to strike again.

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery will have a one-week theatrical run starting November 23 (making it eligible for Oscars) and then start streaming on Netflix on December 23. For quite a few critics who have already seen Glass Onion, it surpasses the original. There are reasons galore to be excited for this film.

Joining Craig and Norton is a phenomenal cast that includes Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson, and Dave Bautista. This list doesn’t include the cameos, but those folks, like the film’s many twists and turns, are part of the secrets Johnson and the rest of us want to stay hidden.
