Glass Onion: Knives Out: The Mystery Thriller Unlocks Daniel Craig’s First Look
Glass Onion: A Knives Out has revealed the first look at the Rian Johnson murder mystery. The multi-cast film follows a witty sequel to Rian’s Oscar-nominated Knives Out, which starred Daniel Craig, Ana de Armas, Chris Evans and Toni Colette, among others.
In Part 2, we’ll see Craig’s Detective Benoit Blanc again investigate the new case, for which he can travel all the way to Greece. The show’s story following on from Rian Johnson’s Knives Out show, there’s detective Benoit Blanc who set off for Greece to peel back the layers of such a mystery by getting involved with a new cast of colored suspects.
In an interview on Netflix, filmmaker Rian Johnson revealed that in the new feature film we could experience the character of Daniel Craig, it’s much better than we did in the original.
The director opened: “In the first one, because of the way it was structured, Marta, the character of Ana de Armas, was really the protagonist. To a large extent, White was the threat. He was almost the protagonist in terms of the structure of the story, because you got worried, that even if they got close, it was going to catch up with her and he was going to turn her around at the end.
So Blanc was still out there and was a bit more of an enigma in the first film as well. Whereas, in this one, Blanch receives an invitation to come to this murder mystery on this island. We meet these people a lot and also enter this world through his eyes,”
Johnson also talked about how he got a chance on the film’s interesting title and said, “So the idea for the glass came to me, something that’s clear, I’m going to be very honest. I literally pull out my iPhone and search my music library with the word “glass”. There must be some good glass songs. I thought, “Oh, is this a glass fortress? Is it a glass castle? Is it a man of glass? the first notable thing that popped up, because I’m a huge Beatles fan, was “Glass Onion”
In this show, we will also see Jessica Henwick, Etan Hawke, Edward Norton, Kate Hudson, Dave Bautista, and many others.
