Daniel Craig’s Detective Benoit Blanc is returning to solve a new mystery in the sequel to Knives Out by Rian Johnson. New images of the sequel were shared today.
Leslie Odom Jr. as Lionel Toussaint, joined by Kathryn Hahn’s Claire Debella (a Connecticut governor) and Kate Hudson’s fashionista Birdie Jay.
Odom Jr.’s Toussaint is a scientist who works for Edward Norton’s tech disruptor Miles Bron – seen here facing off with Dave Bautista’s YouTube star Duke Cody, who’s attending the party with his younger girlfriend Whiskey, played by Madelyn Cline.
In another image, Jessica Henwick as Birdie’s assistant Peg, and Janelle Monáe as tech entrepreneur Cassandra ‘Andi’ Brand are seen getting confrontational with Hahn’s Claire.
Like the first film, the sequel has elements of social commentary throughout. “The movie itself is not entirely about the income divide, but that definitely has a huge place in it,” says Johnson of the ideas under Glass Onion’s layers.
Glass Onion streams on Netflix December 23.
