Many have lamented on the shame that the upcoming Knives Out sequel, Glass Onion, was a Netflix exclusive. while it’s a great win for the streaming service, it does seem like a shame that we won’t get the iconic franchise’s return in theaters. Luckily, it seems that we’re still going to get our hands on the film in theaters, as the film is going to head to theaters for a theatrical sneak preview event for a week.
What does make this stand out is that the film will be released in AMC Theaters, Regal Movies, Cinemark, and many more, which makes it the most chains one of their films have been released in. As of now, the film is set to be available in 600 theaters over Thanksgiving week. So, this might mark the biggest move from the streaming service to embrace theatrical releases.
Rian Johnson has shared his excitement on Twitter:
That’s not all, as the Netflix Film head, Scott Stuber, also had the following to say on the release.
We’re excited to offer fans an exclusive sneak preview of Rian’s incredible film. Given the excitement surrounding the premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, we hope fans will enjoy this special theatrical event in celebration of the film’s global debut on Netflix in December.Scott Stuber
