There have been multiple highly-anticipated fall 2022 movies that have left moviegoers champing at the bit, with Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery at the top of that list. The sequel to Rian Johnson’s 2019 whodunit will be here soon enough, and take audiences back on the the trail with Daniel Craig’s charismatic and unique Benoit Blanc, as the private investigator attempts to get the bottom of a yet another murder mystery.

But with the movie having a rather complex release with the movie showing in theaters for short period of time before streaming online, trying to figure out when you can watch Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery streaming can be quite the task. But worry not, because we are about to break down all the ways to watch the movie some have said is better than the original. Let’s peel back the layers now, shall we?

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery In Theaters

Netflix secured the rights to the two sequels in Rian Johnson’s Knives Out franchise in April 2021 for a reported sum in the ballpark of $450 million, making it seem as if the movies would not get traditional theatrical releases. And while it is true that Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery will soon be exclusive to the Netflix library, the movie received a brief theatrical release for a short period of time a month before making its streaming debut.

Between November 23rd and 29th, this special sneak peek previews event gave audiences early access to one of the most well-received movies to debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2022. And if Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is anything like its predecessor, it will be another great theater experience for all who choose to take that route.
