After countless speculation over whether Netflix would cut a deal with exhibitors to distribute their upcoming high profile films in movie theatres, the streaming giant announced on Thursday plans to show “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” in cinemas from 23-29 November of this year.

Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Rian Johnson, the highly anticipated follow up to his 2019 hit “Knives Out” will be the first-ever Netflix film to debut across all three major US theatrical chains: AMC, Regal, and Cinemark. The limited time only sneak preview event will play in approximately 600 theaters in the U.S. with additional theaters around the world including Canada, the UK, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Spain, Israel, Australia and New Zealand.

“Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” will debut globally on Netflix one month later on December 23, 2022.
