Netflix's major Christmas release has 93% on Rotten Tomatoes

Netflix's major Christmas release has 93% on Rotten Tomatoes

And its sunny scenes are the antidote to this bitter winter weather.

One of the most impressive movies of the year is about to land on Netflix, so subscribers better be on their toes to catch this extremely highly rated film in time for Christmas.

We are, of course, referring to Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. The original film caused a stir in the genre as well as showing off absolutely astounding performances from an ensemble cast, with Daniel Craig playing the oddball detective Benoit Blanc. You'll be happy to hear that Blanc is back for this outing and he is ushered out to a private island in Greece to solve the strange murder of a CEO. This time, the cast comprises Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Kate Hudson, Dave Bautista, Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Noah Segan, Jackie Hoffman and Dallas Robert Kate Hudson, and Dave Bautista.

Enough yammering - here's the trailer:

Those sunny scenes might be the antidote to the bitter weather of the winter, and as with all murder mysteries, it's best that you try to avoid reading anything about it before you settle in for the watch. Speaking to Tudum, the official website for behind-the-scenes stories about Netflix shows and films, Craig shed a little light on what it's like to become a part of the esteemed troupe of murder mystery detectives.

“What Rian’s movies do best is they subvert the genre so that you think you’re watching an old-fashioned sort of Agatha Christie-type mystery,” explained the actor. “But then you’re not watching that, you’re watching something else. If [Christie had] been writing today, she would’ve written about dot-com billionaires. She would’ve written about social media stars.”

Indeed, while the first film proffered a much more traditional whodunnit, this one speaks to the fascination that the public has with the far-too-rich and famous and the exhausting manoeuvring they're doing to ensure they never fall in their peers' favour.

“[Rian’s] playing 3D chess constantly, and not in a condescending way, in a really inclusive and generous way. There are payoffs, constant payoffs, and if you're watching and enjoying it and concentrating, you'll get every single one,” said Craig. Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery comes to Netflix on 23 December.
