Knives Out 1 came out in 2019, and it was an instant hit with the audience. Earlier this year, it was announced that a sequel of Knives Out would be released. The title is Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, the last part of the title signifies that it is indeed a sequel to part 1. Netflix just released the official teaser trailer of Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. We can finally get a little sneak peak of the much-anticipated sequel of Knives Out. The upcoming movie features a murder mystery just like the first one, and waiting for the release seems worth it. The teaser trailer looks pleasingly cinematic and aptly mysterious.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery Teaser Trailer
The teaser for Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery was released on 8th September 2022. The film is set in the same world as Knives Out (2019), a murder mystery full of suspense and thrill. The trailer was released a few days before the debut premiere at the Toronto Film Festival. The newly released teaser gives us a much-awaited insight of the upcoming murder mystery. The story is set on a luxury yacht that is enroute to an island in Greece. Most importantly, Daniel Craig is making a return as Detective Benoit Blanc, and everyone is more than excited to see him in that role once again. Check official trailer:
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery Release Date
Although the movie wrapped up its filming schedule back in September of 2021, it has been in post-production ever since. However, the good news is that the release date has finally been announced. The Knives Out sequel is all set to premiere on 23rd December of 2022. Even though the creators have made the fans wait a long time for this, after looking at the teaser, it seems like it will all be worth it. Moreover, it is very unlikely that Netflix to release the teaser three and a half months before the release of the movie. The reason behind this might be the premiere of Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery at the Toronto Film Festival this weekend. We are definitely not complaining because all the murder mystery fans just got a fresh look at the upcoming movie.
The new Netflix film is a much-awaited murder mystery after the big hit Knives Out(2019). It was only fair that the makers served the fans with a sequel. The film is set on a private island in Greece. Detective Benoit Balance finds himself with another murder mystery. He travels to Greece to investigate a case full of colourful suspects. In the story, someone dies during a fun-filled getaway organized by tech billionaire Miles Bron(Edward Norton).
Moreover, the title of the movie is very catchy, but why name it Glass Onion and not just Knives Out 2? Onion is synonymous with layers, and as also mentioned in the official tagline, Blanc will “peel back layers of a mystery,” but the ‘glass’ aspect implies a layer of transparency. Coincidence or not, Glass Onion is also a song by the Beatles, the iconic band. Initially, the title got the fans very excited for the movie, and now the teaser trailer has lived up to their expectations, leaving them wanting more and more every time.
