Daniel Craig will revive his southern accent in Glass Onion, the sequel to 2019’s whodunnit smash Knives Out.

The new movie will debut on Netflix December 23, as well as “be released in select theaters on a to be announced date.”

The global Netflix release will follow the film’s premiere at the Toronto Fest in September. In addition, the streamer confirmed that the Rian Johnson-directed picture will receive an awards qualifying theatrical run in select theaters, but did not give a date or clarify how large it would be.

Knives Out was surprise success for mid-budget original property, grossing over $100 million in the U.S. and $200 million worldwide.

Theater owners should be eager to have the highly anticipated movie play in their venues.

Although plot details remain under wraps, Glass Onion: Knives Out Mystery sees Craig return as Benoit Blanc, a brilliant Southern private detective.

Glass Onion likely won’t be the last film starring Craig as Benoit Blanc.

Although a third “Knives Out” film hasn’t received an official greenlight, Netflix bought rights to distribute the original film’s two sequels last year.

Lionsgate and T-Street serve as the production companies for the film. Johnson produced the film with his longtime producing partner Ram Bergman.

In addition to announcing the premiere date, Netflix also released first look images for “Glass Onion.”
