The full trailer for Rian Johnson’s highly-anticipated Knives Out sequel has arrived.
Featuring the return of Daniel Craig as Detective Benoit Blanc, the latest look at Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery offers a closer look at the cast of characters he’ll be investigating. As the trailer showcases, Edward Norton’s Miles Bron, a tech billionaire, invites some of his closest friends for a murder mystery party on his private Greek island, only for someone to turn up dead for real.
The stacked cast for the sequel easily rivals the star-studded original. Joining Craig and Norton is Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Hessic Henwick, Kate Hudson, Ethan Hawke, Dave Bautista, and Madelyn Cline among others.
“We had such an amazing cast in the last one and I didn’t know how we were going to top that, but we’ve equaled it,” said Craig in a comment shared with Netflix’s Tudum. “The working experience, just to come on set and make these movies is such fun.” Writer-director Rian Johnson Johnson added that Craig’s compelling detective will be even more central this time around, and hinted that he has a “long list” of cases for the character in the future.
Netflix acquired the rights for two sequels to the 2019 original last year, so it’s safe to assume that Glass Onion won’t be the last we’ll see of Benoit Blanc. The character was a clear highlight of Knives Out, and it’s obvious that Craig has a blast playing him, too. During a press conference in October, Johnson was asked if Craig’s character is queer. “Yes, he obviously is,” said the director, who also helmed Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Glass Onion hits Theaters on Nov. 23, and will arrive on Netflix on Dec. 23.
