Do you need to watch Knives Out before Glass Onion? Answered

Good news, detectives! Onion of glass: a mystery at loggerheads, Following Knives out starring Daniel Craig, is now streaming on Netflix. Glass Onion find the world famous detective Benoit White (Craig) on ​​the private island of billionaire Miles Bron (Edward Norton), whose staged murder mystery quickly turns sideways when a real killer shows up. The film is brought to life by a bevy of quirky and colorful characters, played by Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Kate Hudson, Leslie Odom Jr., Dave Bautista, Madelyn Cline and Jessica Henwick. The list of surprise cameos is just as starry as the main cast, and the movie is over two hours of upside-down fun.

But do you need to watch the original Knives out to understand what is happening?

In Knives out, White is called to the mansion of another eccentric millionaire, Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer). Thrombey is dead, all of his family members are trying to get their hands on his fortune, and Blanc must enlist the help of Thrombey’s unassuming nurse (Ana de Armas) to find out who killed him. Like Agatha Christie’s recurring character, Hercule Poirot, Benoit Blanc is the only character who succeeds Knives out to Glass Onion.

What do you need to know before watching Glass Onion?

From the cast, setting and plot of Glass Onion are all completely new, you don’t need to watch Knives out to find out what’s going on – which is lucky, because due to licensing issues with Lionsgate, who distributed the first film, Knives out is currently not streaming on Netflix in all regions. All you need to know is that in the Knives out series, Blanc is an eccentric gentleman with a Cajun drawl and a reputation as the greatest detective alive. But honestly, it will all become apparent in its first 30 seconds on screen anyway.

That said, however, you To do need to watch Knives out at some point, because it’s a fantastic movie, even for non-mystery fans (I don’t usually like mysteries and loved it). Moreover, watch it before Glass Onion will give you a better appreciation of Blanc’s character, since he mainly plays a simple detective in Knives outbut some pockets of his true inner quirk stick out here and there.

However, if you look Glass Onion first and you find yourself mumbling dazedly, “I get it now. I understand why everyone is obsessed. I’m a true believer now,” so give Knives out a watch. If it’s not available on Netflix in your region, you can rent it on Apple TV Plus, Amazon Prime, Redbox, and other platforms.
