There were even more after that! Knives Out 2, the follow-up to 2019's famous murder mystery, began filming in Greece last week, and it looks like they're still adding actors to the ensemble.
The original film's cast of A-listers, including Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Don Johnson, Christopher Plummer, Toni Collette, Keith Stanfield, Ana de Armas, and Jamie Lee Curtis, was a big reason for its success (it made over $300 million worldwide). The anticipation for the new film grew almost as fast as the actor list, so it's no surprise that writer/director Rian Johnson has already discussed a sequel.
The only conceivable drawback? As far as we know, Craig (Det. Benoit Blanc) is the only cast member from the first Knives Out who will be reprising his role. (No more Chris Evans in a thick sweater? Nooooo!) However, the eclectic mix of celebs that have signed on to join Craig for Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (aka Knives Out 2) is a murderers' row of Hollywood talent, so it's all OK.
Is There a Release Date for Glass Onion?
On September 10, 2022, the Toronto International Film Festival will host the global debut of Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.
In addition, the film will have its world premiere at the BFI London Film Festival on October 16, 2022. The film will have a limited theatrical release in November 2022, but we don't yet know when the general public will be able to see it.
On December 23, 2022, the film will debut on Netflix in all regions. Glass Onion is expected to follow in the footsteps of other Christmas weekend blockbusters including Don't Look Up, Bridgerton, The Witcher, and Bird Box.
The Plot of Knives Out 2: What Happens in the Follow-up?
It's unlikely that Benoit Blanc will return to the Thrombey family's Fresh England mansion because he's off to Greece to “peel back the layers of a mystery involving a new cast of colorful suspects,” as Netflix puts it.
Since the first film came out, fans have speculated about what a sequel to Knives Out would entail, but director Rian Johnson has made it plain that any sequels will be part of an anthology of short films rather than a continuation of the main story.
To The Hollywood Reporter in February of 2020, he said, “Think of it simply like another Hercule Poirot novel from Agatha Christie, so a whole new location, entire new cast.”
Is a Trailer Available for Glass Onion?
The first official trailer for Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery premiered on Netflix on September 8, 2022. While the minute-and-a-half trailer gives us our first glimpse at the film's general atmosphere, it glaringly lacks any storyline details.
The teaser has scenes of drinking and dancing, a motorcycle chase, a gunshot, and Dave Bautista in a Speedo.
