Who doesn't love receiving a mysterious package from a billionaire friend in the mail? In a new clip from upcoming Benoit Blanc whodunit, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, a colourful cast of characters receives exactly that privilege. Miles Bron (Edward Norton) has invited his closest friends to an island getaway where they will investigate his murder. The only catch? They have to solve an intricate puzzle box first. Thanks to Tudum: A Netflix Global Fan Event, we've got the clip (and an introductory message from writer-director Rian Johnson).
Fortunately, this crew is more than up to the challenge. Or, well, some of them are. Dave Bautista knows the atomic number of silver, Kathryn Hahn keeps her husbands prying hands away from the box, Kate Hudson basks in the crews victorious puzzle-solving, Jessica Henwick looks on with curiosity and Leslie Odom Jr. keeps everyone on track. Finally, their efforts hit paydirt. Inside the puzzle box is a tiny artifact, resembling the glass onion of the films title. It pops open, revealing an invitation. To quote a detective peer of Benoits: The game is afoot.
Alongside the cast appearing in the clip, Glass Onion stars a returning Daniel Craig as detective Benoit Blanc, as well as Janelle Monáe and Madelyn Cline (who wanders into frame at the very end of this clip).
As Blanc intones over the final moments of the clip, This invitation is not to be trifled with. Of course, you should still stream Glass Onion on Netflix starting on December 23. Consider that a much less elaborate invitation.
