About Glass Onion Movie

Director Johnson made it clear from the start that Glass Onion will not be a continuation to the 2019 film but a standalone movie with a different storyline. Most of the characters remain the same as usual with a new story resembling with the Belgian novel series Hercule Poirot written by Agatha Christie.

Other than that, the award winning screenplay artist has drawn inspiration from other murder mysteries such as Evil Under the Sun and other similar detective series whose stories move around frenemies. He finally has to choose a plain name for the movie and he ended up choosing The Beatles song title in 1968.


The crime drama film follows a tech billionaire named Miles Bron who invites his friends to a huge party on his private Greek Island. But the party goes wrong when a person found dead in the middle of the party. It’s time to call Detective Benoit Blanc who is eagerly waiting to prove his professionalism once again.
