Rian Johnson features Daniel Craig as the greatest detective Benoit Blanc with a bizarre Southern accent in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery solving an Agatha-Christie-style mystery of a wealthy woman’s death.  

The plot revolves around a group of friends and the murder of Cassandra “Andi” Brand with billionaire Miles Bron (Edward Norton) at the center.
