Det. Daniel Craig returns in ‘Knives Out 2’ teaser trailer

Like Messer, the eagerly awaited first trailer for “Glass Onion” has finally been released.

Netflix on Thursday released a teaser for the sequel to writer-director Rian Johnson’s Oscar-nominated crime drama Knives Out. The star-studded cast of Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery includes Edward Norton, Madelyn Cline, Kathryn Hahn, Dave Bautista, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Kate Hudson and Janelle Monáe.

Sole returning cast member Daniel Craig has reprized his beloved role as detective Benoit Blanc, who expertly solved the first Knives Out mystery with a crucial assist from Ana de Armas’ Marta Cabrera. As a result, Blanc travels to Greece to investigate a whole new group of suspects.

“Ladies and gentlemen,” Craig’s melodramatic detective says in the preview, in his signature Southern accent. “You were expecting a mystery. You were expecting a riddle. But for a person on this island, that’s not a game.”

The rest of the preview is an exciting flurry of blink-and-you’ll-miss-moments: Craig sips a drink by the pool, Cline arms himself with a sharp implement, Henwick yells bloody murder, Hahn yells “Holy s — ‘, Hudson struts around in an orange bikini, Bautista fires a shot into the air and Monaé drops a glass that inevitably shatters onto the floor.

“Shut the door. Stay in your rooms,” Craig’s Blanc warns vacationers. “Everyone is in danger.”

During the 2019 holiday season, “Knives Out” started strong at the domestic box office, earning rave reviews from critics for outstanding performance and a clever plot that was steeped in sharp social commentary. The following year, the Agatha Christie-style drama was nominated for Original Screenplay at the Academy Awards.

Alongside Craig and De Armas, Knives Out starred Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, LaKeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford and the late Christopher Plummer in one of his last roles.

“The basic idea was kind of double – or triple, I think – a murder mystery that turns into a Hitchcock thriller that turns into a mystery again at the end. Combine that with — and spoiler alert — doing the ‘Columbo’ thing, tipping the ‘killer’ early, but arranging it so that your sympathies are genuinely with that person,” Johnson told The Times in 2019.

“It creates an interesting dynamic where the mechanics of the crime itself become the villain of the film. The fact that the killer is caught is what you fear.”
