On December 23, 2022, a new title arrived on the Netflix platform, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, and since then it has become one of the works most appreciated by the public.
No wonder the film is number one in the top 10 on Netflix at the time of writing this. But since all is not well, the production’s director, Rian Johnson, recently shared his frustration with the production’s title. For him, the title should have been different, but no one paid attention.
Rian Johnson’s big disappointment
Information about Johnson’s dislike for the title was released during an interview with The Atlantic, which the filmmaker attended and decided to confess his dissatisfaction to both the public and the interviewer.
Read an excerpt mentioned by Jonson below:
“I tried very hard to make them independent. To be honest, I’m irritated that we have ‘A Knives Out Mystery’ in the title.”
And he goes on:
“I want it to be called ‘Glass Onion.’ I get it, and I want anyone who enjoyed the first movie to know that this is the next one in the series, but the whole appeal for me is that it’s always a new novel out of the box. But there is a pull of a thousand suns for an ongoing narrative.”
More information about ‘Glass Onion’
As previously mentioned, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery began streaming on Netflix in December and has garnered a lot of public attention since then.
But the narrative only began when we saw a familiar face playing Benoit Blac, a detective who travels to Greece to find the solution to a mystery provoked by a crime.
Such a mystery surrounds the entire cast group, which consists of Dave Bautista, Janelle Monae, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Kate Hudson and Edward Norton.
Director Rian Johnson not only directed but also wrote the screenplay for Glass Onion. The film is currently still available on the Netflix platform in addition to a few selected cinemas.
