‘Glass Onion’ Trailer: Peel Back Layers of a New Mystery

Benoit Blanc is back and this time…he’s wearing a lot of ascots.

It’s probably not the most exciting thing about the first teaser for the new sequel Knives Out, Glass onion. But it definitely caught my eye. Daniel Craig returns as modern cinema’s preeminent master leather, and in the space of less than 90 seconds, he wears at least three different scarves. It’s quite a fashion statement.

The trailer doesn’t give much away – do you want it? — but it introduces an eccentric new cast of suspects to this latest murder mystery, including Edward Norton, Dave Bautista, Janelle Monae, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick and Kate Hudson. See it below:

In a new one interview tied to the teaser, Johnson gave his thoughts on what makes a great murder mystery:

The reality is that what makes something successful is a story, and that goes for a whodunit as well… Are there characters you care about? Are you emotionally drained? Are you on tour with them with this story? Then the revelation that it’s all connected and whodunit and the fact that it’s all layered in there is part of the fun of the genre. But in a way, it may not be the spine that actually supports the body of it all. You just need a good story.

Here is the film’s official synopsis:

In the follow-up to Rian Johnson’s KNIVES OUT, detective Benoit Blanc travels to Greece to peel back the layers of a mystery involving a new cast of colorful suspects.

Glass onion: A Knives Out Mystery premiered on Netflix December 23rd. The film will also be released in theaters, although a date has not yet been announced.
