The performances are gripping, led by a hilarious performance once again from Craig. The movie plays on the tropes of classic mystery, detective novels, games, and movies, while also bringing a fresh and inspired story that is sure to keep the viewer on their toes and at the edge of their seats.

GLASS ONION is a sequel mystery to KNIVES OUT with a new cast of eccentric characters. Returning to the big screen is the witty, southern detective, Benoit Blanc, who desperately wants another challenging case.
When a mysterious wooden puzzle box arrives at his door, Blanc can’t help but entertain his curiosity and discovers that he has been invited to an exclusive party with billionaire Miles Bron, who lives on an island off the coast of Greece. Blanc, along with a group of Bron’s closest friends arrive on the island and discover that Bron has planned a murder mystery for them to solve while they are there.
Blanc is confused to find out that Bron never actually invited him to the party. However, Bron is excited to have the world’s greatest detective at his murder mystery party and welcomes him into the exclusive and tight-knit friend group.
Eyebrows are raised, however, after Bron’s ex business partner, Andi Brand, arrives at the island. Bron recently cut ties with Brand after a falling out over one of Bron’s latest business ventures. While her arrival is shocking, Bron is happy that she decided to come despite her recent exit from both the company and their friend group.
Aside from Blanc, the group of friends go about once a year to Bron’s house to celebrate his success. Duke Cody is a male-rights activist and Twitch streamer who comes to the island with his girlfriend, Whiskey. Also invited is politician Claire Debella, one of Bron’s lead researchers and employees, Lionel Toussaint, as well as washed-up model Birdie Jay along with her assistant Peg.
The lifelong group of friends wonder why Andi would ever show up to the house of the man who destroyed her chances of taking part in his fortune. However, they also want to know why the first-time guest—and the world’s greatest detective—received an invitation. Although Bron accepts all the surprises in stride, his murder mystery party takes a striking turn.
