The fans have already given the trailer a thumbs up, with one commenting, “Honestly, so hyped up for this, the first part was literally one of the best mystery movies I have ever seen,” and another writing, “I really hope we keep getting more knives out movies. They could become a pretty iconic series of movies if done right.”

The Film Features an Impressive Ensemble Cast
Apart from Craig returning as Detective Blanc, the film will star Edward Norton as tech billionaire Miles Bron, Janelle Monáe as Miles’s ex-business partner Cassandra Brand, Kathryn Hahn as governor Claire Debella, Leslie Odom Jr. as scientist Lionel Toussaint, Kate Hudson as fashion designer Birdie Jay and Jessica Henwick as Birdie’s assistant Peg.

Natasha Lyonne, Hugh Grant, Yo-Yo Ma and Joseph Gordon-Levitt will also be making appearances in the film.
Two Knives Out Sequel are in the Works at Netflix
Rian Johnson, who directed Knives Out, has also written and directed the Glass Onion. He had talked about the possibility of a prequel while promoting the original film in 2019. In 2020, Netflix signed a deal worth $469 million to release two Knives Out sequels.
Talking about the Glass Onion, Johnson said at Netflix’s TUDUM, “The mystery is not going to be what keeps the audience in their seats. Remember first and foremost that you’re making a movie and that it has to dramatically work before it intellectually works as a puzzle.”
“That’s actually still the hard part – creating a good story that feels unique and feels exciting and emotionally feels satisfying at the end,” he added. The film was extensively shot in Spetses, Greece, between June and July 2021, with the filming continuing at other locations till September.
