The ‘Knives Out’ sequel must play in theaters before it hits Netflix

As a rule, Netflix and the biggest theater chains do not fare well. And why should they? They are essentially competitors; Netflix wants you to stay home and watch Netflix all the time, which is somewhat against the ethos of movie theaters that require you to leave the house to enjoy their goods and services. While Netflix has released some of its bigger films to select theaters, mostly art houses and smaller indie chains, their titles have largely never played in the larger multiplexes around the country.

But that’s about to change with Netflix’s upcoming holiday blockbuster, Glass onion: A Knives Out Mystery. The original Knives out was a surprise hit in theaters back in 2019, and it’s clear theater chains believe the sequel could be again, even though the film will be streaming on Netflix a short time later. Today, director Ryan Johnson announced it Glass onion will play for one week only in major chains AMC, Regal and Cinemark around Thanksgiving. Its streaming debut follows a month later.

In another tweet, Johnson noted, “this is the first time a Netflix movie has been in all these theater chains, which is a very big deal.”

This sequel movie to Knives out sees Daniel Craig reprise his role as master detective Benoit Blanc, this time solving a murder mystery on a gorgeous private island in the Mediterranean. In addition to Craig, there is an all-new cast including Edward Norton, Janelle Monae, Kathryn Hahn, Jessica Henwick, Ethan Hawke, Leslie Odom Jr. and Dave Bautista.

Glass onion plays in the cinema for a week, from 23.-29. November. The film will then premiere on Netflix on December 23. Tickets for Glass onions theater run goes on sale on Monday at this website.
