The visible distinction between “Knives Out” and “Glass Onion” aren’t any coincidence. Whereas the Thrombey manor felt untouched by time, Miles’s home is extraordinarily high-tech and fashionable. Rian Johnson stated in the course of the press convention that this new aesthetic was meant to sign a brand new shift for the burgeoning franchise. “It is type of wanting this to be a complete totally different film and signaling to the viewers actually clearly upfront,” he elaborated. “Buying and selling the browns of New England for the blues and yellows of Greece felt like a very apparent [choice].”
Given how meticulous of a author and planner Johnson is, none of this needs to be stunning. He is confirmed time and time once more that he is a filmmaker that wishes to go away no stone unturned, from indie neo-noirs to big-budget science fiction. It is actually cool listening to how deliberate this aesthetic was, however an enormous query nonetheless stays: Why particularly Greece? Properly, that may simply be answered once you bear in mind when “Glass Onion” was being written.
“I wrote the script in 2020 in the midst of lockdown,” Johnson stated, “So like a whole lot of us, I used to be sitting at house, type of wishing I used to be on the Greek islands, so that may have one thing to do with it.”
“Glass Onion: A Knives Out Thriller” will display in theaters for one week beginning November 23. After that run has concluded, it’s going to arrive on Netflix on December 23.
