Rian Johnson has shared the first trailer for Knives Out 2. Written and directed by Johnson, the eagerly anticipated Netflix movie will see Daniel Craig return as Benoit Blanc, who’s invited to a luxurious island by billionaire Miles Bron (Edward Norton).
Unfortunately, the detective will have his work cut out for him solving this particular case, and there’s a whole host of suspects for him to work through.
As Benoit mixes with Miles’ nearest and dearest, one of them ends up dead, and The Last of the Gentlemen Sleuths must spring into action to solve the case.
Check out the Knives Out 2 trailer below:
The thriller movie boasts an all-star ensemble cast including Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson, and Dave Bautista.
Don’t let all those starts distract you, though, this is Benoit’s movie and Johnson’s promised he’ll have a more central role after taking a back seat to Ana De Armas’s character in the first detective movie.
“Blanc was always outside of the sphere of our protagonist and was a little bit more of an enigma in the first movie. Whereas, in this one, Blanc gets an invitation to come to this murder mystery on this island,” Johnson told Netflix.”We’re very much meeting these people and getting into this world through his eyes.”
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery will stream exclusively on Netflix from December 23.
