‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery’ to have a Brief Theatrical Release in November
The much-anticipated sequel to “Knives Out” by Rian Johnson will first be shown in theatres. Netflix had previously said that “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” would play in “selected theatres on a date to be announced.”
Now, the company has announced that the movie will play in theatres for a “special sneak preview” over Thanksgiving, a full month before it comes out on Netflix.
The movie had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it was called “dazzling.” The sneak preview will run from November 23-29.
“Glass Onion” will only be shown in about 600 theatres in the United States. It will be the first Netflix movie to open in all three of the biggest U.S. theatre chains (AMC, Regal and Cinemark).
It will also be shown in some theatres in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Spain, Israel, Australia, and New Zealand, among other places. On October 10, tickets can be bought at glassonionmovie.com.
Johnson said in a statement, “I could not be happier that Netflix worked with AMC, Regal, and Cinemark to get ‘Glass Onion’ into theatres for this one-of-a-kind sneak preview.” “These movies are made to thrill audiences, and I can not wait to feel the energy of the crowd as they watch “Glass Onion.”
I am excited that people all over the world will be able to watch the movie between this and when it comes out on Netflix in December. Scott Stuber, who is in charge of global film at Netflix, said, “We are excited to give fans a sneak peek of Rian’s amazing film.
We hope fans will enjoy this special event in theatres to celebrate the film’s worldwide debut on Netflix in December. The premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival was a big deal, and we think this event will be too.
Daniel Craig is back as super sleuth Benoit Blanc in the sequel to the 2019 box office hit, which made more than $311 million worldwide and was nominated for an Oscar.
In his new murder mystery, Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson, and Dave Bautista are among the people who might be the killer. Again, Johnson wrote and directed the movie, and he and his partner Ram Bergman produced it under their T-Street banner.
“Glass Onion” comes out worldwide on Netflix on December 23.
