Netflix Has Finally Dropped the Trailer for ‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery’

We keep getting more and more excited for Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (AKA the sequel to Knives Out), and now that Netflix has finally dropped the first trailer, our anticipation couldn't be any higher.

The brand-new clip was shared to the official Knives Out Instagram page, where the account runners wrote, “This holiday season, Rian Johnson invites you to put the pieces together. GLASS ONION: A KNIVES OUT MYSTERY coming soon to select theaters and only on Netflix December 23.”

In the clip above, we see the return of our favorite private detective, Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig), but this time around, he's joined by a whole new crew of A-list stars, including Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson and Dave Bautista.

“Ladies and gentlemen, you expected a mystery,” Craig's character says in the trailer. “You expected a puzzle. But for one person on this island, this is not a game.”

While little else is revealed in the trailer, it appears that Glass Onion will feature just as much intrigue as the popular first installment.

Glass Onion was written, produced and directed by Johnson, who performed all three roles for the first film as well.

This weekend, the sequel is set to have its world premiere at the 47th Toronto International Film Festival, before it gets a limited release in theaters in November. Then, the highly-anticipated sequel will drop on Netflix on December 23.

As far as the plot of Glass Onion goes, Netflix has offered a short blurb, which reads, “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.”

The mystery awaits. We couldn't be more excited.
