Who gave him the invitation? Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is shown in a new location in the whodunit Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery trailer, which takes place on a Greek beach. Even though the setting has changed significantly from the cold mansion in the first movie, one thing remains the same about Knives Out: a murder has been committed, and there is only one man who can piece everything together and solve it.

In the trailer, actors like Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson, and Dave Bautista, who are all in the movie, show off how great the cast is. While the first Knives Out focused on a quarrelling family, Glass Onion adopts a different strategy. Norton plays software billionaire Miles Bron, who throws a murder mystery party for his guests on a remote island. This time around, the personalities are, shall we say, a little larger.

According to Netflix, writer and director Johnson said that they are all performing and working at a high level. It's not a family trying to figure things out in the middle of New England. These are persons who all have jobs, whether they are rock star scientists, legislators, or business moguls in the fashion industry.

A person from a very different profession—the master detective Benoit Blanc—is thrown into the centre of that wealthy stew. Johnson is overjoyed to see Craig and his delightfully overdone accent back. I'd be a fool not to take advantage of the chance to continue working with one of the world's top actors, who is also a completely nice guy.

A mutual feeling exists. Really, coming back to work with Rian was a no-brainer, according to Craig. The last one had such an incredible cast, and the actor wasn't sure how we could beat that, but they have equaled it. Just showing up on set and making these movies is such a blast to do.

Johnson remarked that Blanc plays a more important part in this movie. One does unquestionably learn a little bit more about him. Because of the way the first one was set up, Ana de Armas' character Marta was essentially the main character, and Blanc posed a significant threat. As shown in one iconic scene from the teaser, the camera circles around Blanc as the other guests come into view. This time, they attend the party from Blanc's perspective. Johnson said that Blanc was invited to this murder mystery party on this island for no reason. They are very much getting to know these individuals and seeing the world through their eyes.

From that point of view, they can also see how methodical Benoit Blanc is when he solves mysteries. Craig remarked that one of Benoit's things is that he seems to be floundering and not really on it. But he is, and that's always entertaining to play with.

This means that they will also get to hear what he thinks about board games, especially the classic Parker Brothers game Clue. They are not what one may anticipate, either. Benoit complains towards the end of the trailer about ticking boxes, running around, and searching all the rooms. It's just an awful, awful game.

Even though they can't be sure that Johnson feels the same way about Clue as his main character, they can be sure that he has the same view on how hard it is to write a good mystery. The mystery won't be what keeps the audience seated, he promises. Keep in mind that one is making a movie and that the plot must flow naturally before the issue can be solved rationally, Johnson advised. Making a compelling story that seems original, interesting, and emotionally fulfilling at the end is still difficult, according to the writer.

Johnson will continue to write those stories for many years to come if he gets his way. In his hopefully lengthy list of cases, Benoit Blanc has another one, he said. The game is officially in motion.
