First teaser trailer (+ poster) for Rian Johnson's Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, from YouTube:
"The phrase I kept coming back to and talking about the first movie is, 'It's a roller coaster and not a crossword puzzle.' It's a common mistake in writing whodunits, thinking that you're making a crossword puzzle, and that the fun is that the audience is actually going to analyze all this and figure it out." –Rian Johnson
In the follow up to Rian Johnson's Knives Out, Tech billionaire Miles Bron invites his friends for a getaway on his private Greek island. When someone turns up dead, Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is put on the case to peel back the layers of a mystery involving a new cast of colorful suspects. Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, the first of two sequels, is once again both written and directed by acclaimed American filmmaker Rian Johnson, director of the films Brick, The Brothers Bloom, Looper, Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi, and Knives Out previously.
