Rian Johnson’s twisted thriller Knives Out breathed new life into the murder mystery genre in 2019 and introduced a new investigator for the post-modern era. The film starred James Bond himself, Daniel Craig, as the verbose Southern detective Benoit Blanc, with a subtle stream of social satire interwoven with terrible deaths.
Knives Out was a hit with both viewers and critics. As a result, not one but two sequels have been commissioned to follow Benoit as he solves mysteries in exotic locales with a revolving cast of A-listers and character performers.
The first sequel, Glass Onion, will be launched, and for those curious as to how and where to watch the follow-up, Digital Trends will help solve the puzzle for you.
Glass Onion: Where to Watch?
If you’d prefer watching the film in the comfort of your own home and have a little patience, don’t fret! Glass Onion will have an exclusive streaming home on Netflix.
Netflix is still regarded as one of the streaming industry’s pioneers. The subscription service includes thousands of hours of movies and television programming.
When will Netflix subscribers be able to access it?
On December 23, Glass Onion will premiere exclusively on Netflix.
How much does it cost?
There are four Netflix subscription plans. There is a basic package that costs $10 per month and allows viewing on a single compatible device.
The base plan allows two devices simultaneously and costs $15.49 per month. The $20 premium package permits simultaneous viewing on four supported devices. These three options are all ad-free.
The fourth option is the free plan with advertisements. Beginning in November 2022, this new advertising package will cost $7 per month. This plan allows users to view Netflix on a single compatible device at a time.
Before and during the majority of television programs and films, advertisements will play. Due to license constraints, certain movies and television shows are unavailable, and downloads are not included.
Glass Onion was not in theatres
It was! As a marketing strategy to generate interest in the Rian Johnson mystery, Netflix screened the film in over 600 theatres from November 23 to 30. The strategy was successful; the film grossed about $15 million during its limited release and had the greatest per-screen average of all films released at the time.
There are rumors that it will be published again following its Netflix premiere, but nothing has been verified. Those who missed its theatrical release will have to wait until December to watch it on Netflix.
Glass Onion Behind The Scene
We are delighted you asked! At the Brazil Comic Con, Netflix debuted an exclusive piece featuring Rian Johnson and the cast filming the film. In addition, Daniel Craig and others were interviewed about their experience filming Glass Onion during the height of the COVID-19 epidemic in 2021. However, do not take our word for it. Just watch the above video to see for yourself.
Is Glass Onion valuable?
A resounding yes. Earlier this year, the film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it received near-universal acclaim, with some critics stating it is even superior to the original. A.A. Dowd, DT’s own film critic, lauded the film, stating that director Rian Johnson “has once again polished the formula of this classic genre, delivering all the expected thrills of a mystery unraveled while touching on contemporary social concerns and gleefully circumventing the expected course of a narrative.”
Craig reprises his role as Benoit alongside Kate Hudson, Leslie Odom Jr., Edward Norton, Kathryn Hahn, Jessica Henwick, Janelle Monae, and Dave Bautista in Glass Onion. Currently, the Knives Out sequel has a 93% Tomatometer rating and an 81 Metacritic score from film reviewers.
On December 23, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery will be available on Netflix.
