Preview: Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (15)

BFI London Film Festival Closing Night Gala

Glass Onion

More an equal than a sequel, Rian Johnson reunites with Daniel Craig (who reunites with that accent) for a new Knives Out, which will delight fans and newcomers alike.

As with its predecessor, Glass Onion is a delicious mystery within an enigma, wrapped inside a riddle, the pleasures of which are best left unspoiled. So fear not, I will tread carefully here... A disparate sextet of former colleagues and friends each receive an intricate puzzle box, which holds within it an invitation to attend an elaborate murder mystery party at their founding member’s beachside mansion.

But while their host is well-known for his parlour tricks, there is something about this particular reunion which feels bizarre. As speculations grow amongst the guests, one question remains on everybody’s lips: who the hell invited Benoit Blanc? All will be revealed as this planned weekend of murder and mayhem, descends into a weekend of murder and mayhem.

Featuring live footage beamed directly from the London Film Festival red carpet.
