New ‘Glass Onion’ Trailer Finds Edward Norton Predicting His Own Murder (Video)

A new trailer for writer/director Rian Johnson’s acclaimed “Knives Out” sequel “Glass Onion” pulls back the curtain ever-so-slightly on the new mystery at hand.

Edward Norton plays a billionaire who gathers his friends (and Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc) in Greece for a murder mystery game of his own, and in this new trailer we watch as he predicts his own murder to his companions. He tasks his friends with solving the mystery of the killer before it’s too late.

The ensemble includes Kate Hudson, Janelle Monae, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr, Jessica Henwick, Dave Bautista and Madelyn Cline.

“Knives Out 2” had its world premiere at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival where it received a rapturous response (it currently sits at 91% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes).

The film is also receiving an unprecedented theatrical release from Netflix over Thanksgiving week — for one week only, it’ll be playing in most major theater chains starting Nov. 23. Then it’ll be streaming on Netflix on Dec. 23, just in time for Christmas.

Released in 2019, “Knives Out” was a critical and commercial hit, grossing $311 million worldwide and earning an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay for Johnson. Following the film’s success, Johnson and producer Ram Bergman signed a deal with Netflix to make two additional “Knives Out” movies with Craig’s Benoit Blanc solving new mysteries.

Agatha Christie’s novels served as the initial inspiration for “Knives Out,” and “Glass Onion” follows in the mystery author’s footsteps by switching up the setting, tone and characters surrounding an all-new whodunit.
