When Is Knives Out 2 Coming Out?
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery actually represents a major first for Netflix original movies. Some Netflix films have been released in limited theaters before their streaming debuts, but they have never been given a wide release by major theatrical distributors. The new Knives Out movie is getting a one-week engagement in theaters, including Regal and AMC, long before its Netflix debut.
The Knives Out sequel will play in theaters around the country for just one week, beginning on November 23rd. One month later, on December 23rd, the film will be released in theaters around the globe.
“We’re excited to offer fans an exclusive sneak preview of Rian’s incredible film,” Netflix film boss Scott Stuber said in a statement. “Given the excitement surrounding the premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, we hope fans will enjoy this special theatrical event in celebration of the film’s global debut on Netflix in December.”
Who Stars in Knives Out 2?
Glass Onion isn’t a direct sequel to Knives Out, as it is another mystery being investigated by Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc. With the exception of Craig, the entire cast of Glass Onion is new to the film series.
The rest of the sequel’s cast includes Edward Norton, Janelle Monae, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson, and Dave Bautista. Rian Johnson serves as writer and director.
