We don’t know much about the actual synopsis for this one. Glass Onion teases this film will have several layers to it, intentions or those layers victims?

Here’s the official Synopsis that Netflix have sent us…
In the follow-up to Rian Johnson’s 2018 Knives Out, Daniel Craig reprises the role of master sleuth, Detective Benoit Blanc, travelling to Greece to peel back the layers of a mystery involving a new cast of colourful suspects.

Both films were produced by Johnson and Ram Bergman, who will also be in attendance, under their T-Street banner, and the previous film earned Johnson an Academy Award® nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay.

I’m thrilled to be back at LFF with Glass Onion, and it’s an honour to be closing the festival. A proper whodunnit really does belong in London, so it feels a bit like coming home!” said Johnson.

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery doesn’t have an exact UK or Irish release date just yet. Netflix will set to release the film first in cinemas, then on their channel later this year. The film will make it’s European premiere on 16th October.
