After a three-year hold, Netflix has ultimately revealed the Knives Out 2 release date. The film, entitled Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, was initially put into effect at Lionsgate, the studio behind the authentic Knives Out after the movie became a critical and commercial smash upon its 2019 out. Writer/director Rian Johnson and T-Street producing associate Ram Bergman would take to auctioning off the ownership for a sequel, with Netflix attaining the rights to two sequels in a major $469 million deal, with Johnson authorized to write and direct both and Daniel Craig connected to return for both as well.
The sequel, entitled Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is arriving on the streaming forum on December 23. This sets the movie at just over three years after the first movie hit theaters.
In addition to its streaming date, Netflix has established that Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is going to be hitting the best theaters, the date of which will be disclosed later. Given the streamer’s surprising releases are typically very selective, it will be fascinating to see how the Knives Out sequel fares at the box office in comparison to its precursor, which grossed over $311 million against its $40 million production budget. Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery was constructed on the same budget and with uncertainty high for its arrival, it appears likely that it will have a passable showing at the box office.
With that said, provided most Netflix movies that hit cinemas come out about two weeks prior to their streaming premieres, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery will have a stiff contest at the box office in December, having to encounter against Avatar: The Way of Water, Shazam! Fury of the Gods and Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, all of which are predicted to be battling one another for supremacy. Only time will tell how the movie grubs when Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery comes on December 23.
