Last time, you decided that mixed dual-wielding is better than VR support. Good. Very good. It’s always nice when objective science produces the correct result. Well done you. This year, I ask you to decide between a cool (and sometimes practical) form of violence and a fun risk/reward element. What’s better: throwing knives or active reload?

Seido Japanese Master Chef’s Knife Set
(opens in a new tab)
Writer-director Rian Johnson’s highly-anticipated follow-up to 2019 Knives Out finally hit Netflix on December 23, and has secured the top spot on the streamer’s English-language film charts for the week of December 26 to January 1. According to Variety, the film quickly became Netflix’s third most watched film in hours viewed in its first 10 days–racking up 127.25 million hours watched in barely over a week.
Other data on the movie’s Christmas debut includes it reaching No. 10 on the Most Popular Film list. All of which is great news for Johnson, star Daniel Craig, and Netflix as the streaming service was recently criticized for “leaving money on the table” with a limited theatrical engagement–a criticism Netflix founder and co-CEO Reed Hastings agreed with, for what it’s worth–around Thanksgiving. The satirical mystery is now behind only Red Notice (364.02 million) and Don’t Look Up (359.79 million), but has plenty of time to catch up as those metrics are tallied based on a movie’s first 28 days of streaming.
Knives Out 2 includes a returning Craig as master detective Benoit Blanc, joined by an expansive ensemble cast. As you can see in the trailer above, the movie is a madcap and truly nutty-fun time. Edward Norton plays a colorful tech billionaire named Miles Bron who invites his friends for a Murder Mystery party on his private Greek island–but when someone turns up dead, Craig’s Detective Benoit Blanc is put on the case.
If you haven’t seen Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, I won’t spoil it. I did plenty of that in my explanation of what the film says about Elon Musk. But let’s just say the cast did a fantastic job.
That’s become a hallmark of a Knives Out movie. There’s Daniel Craig as detective Benoit Blanc, a compelling mystery story, and a cast loaded with stars. The latest film, Glass Onion, featured Craig, Janelle Monáe, Kate Hudson, Edward Norton, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Dave Bautista, and Madelyn Cline, among other fun cameos.
With Glass Onion finally available to stream on Netflix, folks are already moving on to the next installment in their minds. People really want to cast this movie. And frankly, some people on the internet have some really good ideas.
For instance, now I NEED Jack Black in a Knives Out film. He’d absolutely ham it up to the perfect campy degree.
Ditto with Jennifer Coolidge.
For all those steeped in the drama within the Don’t Worry Darling extended universe, this is a perfect idea.
There are so, so, so many great suggestions online.
It’s fun to dream cast new Knives Out films for a few reasons. Of course, one reason is that any actor is a reasonable get. Chris Evans, Kate Hudson, Ana De Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Ed Norton, Janelle Monáe have all said yes to these movies. And both installments were well-received by critics and audiences. So, presumably, lots of stars would sign on for the third movie.
But it’s also fun to dream cast these movies because director Rian Johnson really lets the actors cook in his films. They are full of camp and fun. Glass Onion shows that. Craig is a hammy revelation. Hudson is dialing it up to 11. Hahn steals every scene.
Johnson’s deal with Netflix guarantees we’ll get at least one more Knives Out mystery, and the writer-director has expressed interest in going even bigger in the future. Craig has said he’ll play Blanc as long as he’s asked, but the rest it up to our imagination.
